Can we talk about my serious love for all things Brunch?!?

Or breakfast for lunch…snack…dinner…let’s be real, I will gladly eat breakfast food anytime of the day! I have always loved breakfast, but over that last two years my love has grown into a serious obsession and I don’t see it stopping in the near future. We’ve chatted a bit about this before, but as you will see in the coming weeks, at the moment, my brunch game is strong and on point.

Not gonna lie, I feel pretty good about it. 🙂

I also feel pretty good about Friday too, but then who in their right mind wouldn’t???

What are you guys doing this weekend? I mean, besides making this recipe (duh).

You need to tell me your super fun or super relaxed plans because I need to live vicariously through you. I am pulling a working weekend with my brother Malachi who is coming home for a couple days to help me out. We will be filming some new videos for you guys and then making mass amounts of Bellinis for a fun project I am working on. Tacos will also be going down, and most definitely some more brunch foods (aka these crepes times five). And then last but not least, for sure some time on the couch, because it is the weekend… and some couch time is definitely needed. <–truth.

It’s gonna be a loonnggg weekend, but fun!!

SIDE NOTE if you want to follow along with me this weekend, follow me on snapchat (@hbharvest) for a behind the scenes look!

OK, ok, but these Green Banana Crepes with Whipped Greek Yogurt, we need to get chatting about them!

Here’s the deal. These crepes are as simple as simple, they are just as easy if not easier than any pancake recipe out there. They’re made in a blender in literally under a minute. These crepes are made to be green but the two large handfuls of spinach that give them their color, get sweetened up with the addition of a tasty ripe banana. It may seem odd and you may even be a little scared, but don’t be!! These are my favorite easy, HEALTHY breakfast crepes. And yes, you can even get your kids to eat them (Asher and Red did).

Here’s my little tip for you. When your kids ask why these crepes are green you say, “I made them special for St. Patrick’s Day, and the green makes them lucky”!

GOOD HUH.

You have now given you, your kids, your husband, your boyfriend, your girlfriend, your brothers… whoever, a full serving of fruits and veggies. And it’s pretty safe to say that they will not even know what hit them. Sneaky much? Totally!! And it gets better, not only are you getting in healthy veggies and fruits, you are also getting in protein too!! I know, I know, killin it here! If you’ve never tried whipped greek yogurt, you are missing out. It’s basically whipped cream but with a little tang to it. SO GOOD and you feel better about eating cup…after cup. 🙂 Perfect for stuffing large quantities into these healthy crepes. Like I said, today’s brunch game is on point.

To finish them off, add all of your favorite fruits (for these crepes I love passion fruit, bananas and kiwi…it makes them feel extra tropical!), seeds/nuts (I love using chia seeds, hemp seeds and coconut), almond butter and or peanut butter, edible flowers (OBSESSED) and a little drizzle of maple syrup.

If only I could truly express just how much I love these crepes. Asher says to just tell you all that they are darn delicious and leave it at that. I have to say, I kind of agree. Today might be one of those days where words are not needed. You know, one of those days when you just need to print the recipe, save it to Pinterest, or do whatever you do, and then go make them!

Like NOW.

Yup. Ditch all the things on your to do list and go make green banana crepes! Promise it will be the bestest decision you made all week long. ?

Ingredients

Green Banana Crepes

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk (use your favorite I use coconut or goat milk)
  • 3 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup all-purpose * whole wheat or buckwheat flour can also be used
  • 2 cups handfuls fresh spinach about 2
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • passion fruit bananas, kiwi + fresh berries, toasted coconut, chia seeds, hemp seeds, nut butter and real maple syrup, for serving

Whipped Greek Yogurt

  • 1/3 cup cold canned coconut milk*
  • 1 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup or more to your taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean or 1 vanilla

Instructions

Green Banana Crepes

  • Combine all the ingredients in a blender. Add 1/2 cup of water and blend until the batter is green and completely smooth. If the batter seems on the thick side (it should be a pourable thin pancake batter) add another 1/4 cup of water.
  • If time allows, place the crepe batter in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes. This allows the bubbles to subside so the crepes will be less likely to tear during cooking. The batter will keep for up to 48 hours in the fridge.
  • Heat a 12-inch nonstick pan over medium heat. Lightly grease with coconut oil or cooking spray. Pour 1/3 cup of crepe batter into the center of the pan and swirl to spread evenly. Cook for 30 seconds and flip. Cook another 10 seconds and then remove the crepe to a plate. Repeat with the remaining batter.
  • To serve, fill each crepe with whipped yogurt (recipe below) and top with fruit, seeds, coconut + nut butter if desired. Drizzle with maple syrup. EAT!!

Whipped Greek Yogurt

  • Tip the can of cold coconut milk upside down and pour out the coconut water (reserve for drinking!!). Scoop out the 1/3 cup coconut cream and add it to a mixing bowl. Add the yogurt and heavy cream. Using an electric mixer, whip the cream until stiff peaks form. Add the maple syrup and vanilla and whip until combined. Spread the whipped yogurt into each crepe. Yogurt can be stored in the fridge for up to 1 week.

Notes

*Place your can of coconut milk in the fridge the night before making the crepes to ensure it has plenty of time to chill. *If using buckwheat flour, I recommend using half buckwheat, half white flour. Using all buckwheat makes flipping a little tricky.

  1. Hey There. I discovered your weblog the usage
    of msn. Thaat is a really smartly written article.

    I’ll make sur to bookmark it and come back to learn extra of your helpful
    info. Thank you ffor the post. I’ll certainly return.

  2. These are amazing! I have made them now about 5 times, basically every weekend since I saw your recipe and I can’t get enough of them! I am on a gluten free diet right now and buckwheat works great for me. Also, I substituted the eggs for ground flax and water and experimented adding some coconut and tapioca flour, that worked too. The trick is to have a really good non-stick pan though. I also had to add more water than stated in the recipe, but I suppose it depends on the rest of the products you use. You are a great inspiration, thank you so much! 🙂

  3. I love your recipes! With your website I finally got my parents to eat healthier. I have one question about the pancakes, I’m not allowed to eat any wheat products. Is there any way that I could substitute the flour with tapioca, arrowroot or coconut flour? Thanks so much!

    1. Awe! That is awesome and makes me so happy!!

      I think coconut flour will work great!! Let me know if you have questions and thanks again! 🙂

  4. I followed your recipe, and had to add a quarter of water to make the batter pour – but the pancakes did not come together well – what can I do to fix that about the batter? Also, I used buckwheat – I think that might be part of the problem. Thanks!

    1. HI! Yes, using buckwheat can make flipping the pancakes a little hard. I recommend using half buckwheat flour and half white flour. SO sorry for the trouble. Let me know if you have more questions.

  5. Green always win! 🙂 Great idea for breakfast…! I just need to find somebody who will be willing to get out of bed to prepare them! 🙂

      1. They are very pretty. Haven’t had good luck with orchids in the past. You have inspired me to do a spring quest of trying different edible flowers in fancy food and drinks. Adding edible flowers is a throwback for sure, but they are making a comeback! Thanks for sharing and the inspiration!

  6. I’ve never tried making crepes before, but these look so healthy and delicious that I feel like I should give them a try!!

  7. I love sneaky food! will have to try these for my family 😉
    This weekend is my family’s annual lunch to eat lamprey, I have a 5 hour journey ahead of me, will be a tiring weekend for sure!
    Have a great weekend! 🙂

  8. Yum! I was a little hesitant about green crepes, but these sound amazing. I just bought a pan for crepes that arrived from Amazon yesterday. I should make these!

  9. These are so clever! A great way to sneak a bit of veg in and they’ve come out a fantastic colour as well, I love all the toppings you’ve got going on 🙂

  11. GAH, these look fantastic!!! It’s so clever that you incorporated vegetables into something sweet! I have to try making this!

  12. These look just perfect, I love how simple they are even though they look really special. And delicious. Beautiful photos and yet another really creative recipe – I love checking out what you are posting (:

  13. I LOVE the look of these. Oh my gosh, I must try them. Likewise, any meal is good but there really is something wonderful about brunch

  14. Yum! I will try these for sure. I’ve been making green eggs for my son by blending spinach, eggs and milk and then scrambling them. He loves them!

  15. Sounds amazing! I love your tip for what to tell the kiddos, ha, story of my life! These crepes have got to happen! Happy weekend!

  16. We literally just posted a recipe for spinach pancakes the other day and they were SO GOOD. I love that you went the sweet route with these, I’m sure they must have been delicious! Such a cute idea!
