Parisian Crepes with Chocolate Hazelnut Spread and Banana

For The Crepes:
- 1 cup (130g) all-purpose flour
- ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
- 1½ cups unsweetened almond milk, more if needed
- 3 tablespoons avocado oil, more for the pan
- 4 teaspoons pure maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
For The Filling:
- 1 batch Chocolate Hazelnut Spread
- 2 bananas, sliced into rounds
For Serving (Optional):
- Pure maple syrup
- Dairy-free chocolate chips
- Coconut flakes
1. Preheat the oven to 200°F (100°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour and salt. Pour in the almond milk, avocado oil, maple syrup, and vanilla and whisk together until smooth with no lumps. Cover the bowl with a kitchen towel and refrigerate for 1 hour.
3. Heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat and add a small amount of avocado oil to coat the bottom of the pan. Pour ¼ cup of the batter into the skillet and swirl to evenly coat the bottom of the pan. Cook until the edges of the crepes start to pull away from the pan and the bottom is lightly golden, 1 to 2 minutes. Carefully flip and continue to cook until lightly golden on the other side, about 30 seconds. Slide the crepe onto the prepared baking sheet and keep warm in the oven while you cook the remaining crepes. If the batter is a bit too thick, add a splash more almond milk (up to 1 tablespoon should do). Repeat to use the remaining batter, lightly coating the pan with more avocado oil if needed.
4. Spread a thin layer of the Chocolate Hazelnut Spread over one half of each crepe and layer banana rounds on top. Fold the other half over and then fold again to form a triangle. Top the crepe with more banana rounds and more Chocolate Hazelnut Spread. Serve the crepes topped with maple syrup, chocolate chips, and coconut flakes, if desired.
Store leftover crepes in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Reheat before serving. Store any leftover Chocolate Hazelnut Spread in a jar at room temperature for up to 10 days.
