Chocolate Banana Crepes and Vietnamese Iced Coffee

I made these a couple Sundays ago for the hubs. He loves crepes. I snuck in some healthy too with the bananas! While making it, he said it looked disgusting, but the final result. He ate both of them and had more the next day! This actually is really simple, which I LOVE!

Chocolate Banana Crepes Recipe:

-1 cup all-purpose flour
-3 Tbsp. unsweetened dutch cocoa powder
-1 Tbsp. powdered sugar (or I used 2 Tbsp.)
-1 1/2 cups (I used 1% milk)
-2 large egg whites
-1 whole egg
-1 tsp. oil
-3 bananas, sliced
-whipped cream (homemade or store-bought)
-chocolate syrup, for drizzling
-chocolate chips, for sprinkling (optional)

1. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, milk, cocoa powder, powdered sugar, eggs and oil until smooth. (You can also do this with an electric mixer.)
2. Heat a large nonstick pan on medium-low heat, and grease with cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cup crepe mixture into pan, immediately the pan so that the batter spreads out thin into a large circle. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until bottom of crepe is light golden brown. Flip; cook 30 seconds to 1 minute or until light golden brown. Repeat with remaining cooking spray and crepe mixture.
3. To serve, spoon whipped cream into center of each crepe. Top with sliced bananas and fold each edge of crepe over filling. Drizzle with chocolate syrup and any additional toppings. Serve warm.

(This batter will also keep in the refrigerator for up to a day.)
Makes 12 servings.
