Remember those Baked Banana Crepes from earlier in the week? Well they’re back in this video and this time I’m taking them to the next level.
I double the serving size, smear the center with crunchy almond butter, roll them into logs, and then slice them into pinwheels.
Now you can certainly make these for breakfast and enjoy right away but what I love most about this recipe is that it’s an easy make-ahead meal/snack that you can take on the go.
I like to pop a few pinwheels in some type of airtight container or baggie and bring them on the road, this way when I’m picking kids up from school and then heading straight out to activities I know I have a delicious, healthy snack to look forward to that will prevent me from falling victim to the lack of nutritious convenience food out there.
Plus my kids LOVE them too, which is why I like to double up on the serving size when I’m making these.
You can certainly change up the fillings as well. I’m thinking cottage cheese, Greek yogurt, Nutella, or peanut butter would all be delicious options as well but I would love to hear your thoughts on this.
What do you think would be delicious stuffed inside these crepes?
