I’ve already decided that I am giving up peanut butter for lent next year. Yup, 100% positive. It’s a done deal.
I don’t know what has gotten into me but living in a house with peanut butter addicts this year has changed Bex. It made me think…hmmm…I never really used to indulge in peanut butter that much. I guess I just forgot about it and it was never a go-to snack for me. Then, I moved in with 5-peanut butter lovers accompanied by not one, not two, not three….but five jars of peanut butter. Oh yeah. It’s a problem.
Every time I enter the kitchen, all five of those monsters are like, “Pssttt…Bex. Yooooo hoooo…grab a spoon.”
It is dangerous.
So, that nice bowl full of Halloween candy that still remains on our counter had to be put to good use. And we all know that those Reese’s were going to be gone soon with all the pb lovers in the house so Bex had to snatch a few while they were still up for grabs.
And I mean, what could be more healthy and fulfilling than a Reese’s peanut butter cup crepe to just fuel your day with sugar right off the bat? Mom would approve….
A Peanut Butter Lover’s Dream Crepe
Ingredients (yields a single crepe)
- 1 egg
- 2 tbsp milk
- 1/2 tsp sugar
- A dash of salt
- 4 tbsp flour
- 2 Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
- 1 banana, sliced
- 1 tbsp. Jif Peanut Butter
- 1/2 Chobani Plain Greek Yogurt
Melt a little butter in a crepe pan or frying pan over low-medium heat. Meanwhile, whisk crepe batter together until smooth. Pour batter into pan and let cook about 1-2 minutes until crepe sets. Then flip and cook other side of crepe. This makes a decently thicker crepe so if you would prefer a thinner crepe, just make two with this given amount of batter!
Cut up the Reese’s peanut butter cups into small cubes and slice up the banana. Place crepe on a plate and line with a couple dollops of Greek yogurt. Swirl in peanut butter and then arrange banana slices and Reese’s bites evenly along the crepe. Wrap it up, sprinkle with some cinnamon and bon appétit!
