Ok so we know that we just posted a breakfast recipe yesterday, but today’s recipe is just too good to keep from you all any longer. Seriously people, we made this 2 mornings in a row it was so good! And having the same thing for breakfast for 2 consecutive mornings never happens. Ever.
But if that statement doesn’t get your full and complete attention, then maybe this will…
Crepe. Ice cream. Chocolate and peanut sauce.
Seriously, if you aren’t already in the kitchen making this then we question your sanity!
But wait, isn’t this a healthy food blog?
*Queue diabolical laughter*
Yes it is- and this is a 100% good-for-you indulgence. There has never been a more appropriate time to use the saying “sinfully nutritious” then at this moment.
The crepe is vegan, and we got the recipe here. This recipe is amazing. We don’t know about you guys, but making crepes is always an exercise in frustration for us. We’ve tried making vegan crepes before, and they always end up turning into a pile of crepe chunks, because they always break apart on us! Part of the problem is because our pan has ridiculously high edges. So not ideal for crepe-flipping.
And the ice cream? Chocolate-Banana soft serve. With a bit of added cottage cheese and Greek yogurt, for added protein. We suggest making the soft-serve first and sticking it in the freezer while you make the rest so it has a chance to harden up a bit.
And then topped with with both peanut and chocolate sauce, because why have one sauce when you can have two? And finally, garnished with broiled banana slices. If you have never broiled a banana, by the way, you should do it immediately. It will change your life.
Side note- if you’re having trouble slicing your bananas, you should try this product:

Anyways we won’t keep you waiting any longer, so here’s the recipe. Don’t be surprised if this is all you eat for breakfast for the rest of the week. Because life’s short, eat dessert first…thing in the morning!
Chocolate-Peanut Butter-Banana Soft Serve Crepe
Total time: 10-15 min
1 recipe of these crepes *note this recipe makes more crepes than you will need- leftover crepes can be refrigerated and used the next day!
1 banana, peeled and frozen
1/4 c. each plain Greek yogurt and Plain Cottage Cheese
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1/8 tsp coffee grounds (intensifies the chocolate flavour)
For the Peanut Sauce:
2 tbsp peanut butter
2+ tbsp milk
For the Chocolate Sauce:
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 tbsp vanilla or chocolate protein power
1/4 tsp coffee grounds
1/2-1tsp honey (or other liquid sweetener)
2+ tbsp milk
Broiled banana slices, for garnish
Place all soft-serve ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Place in the freezer while you prepare the rest.
For the crepes, combine the dry ingredients in one bowl and the wet ingredients (except the flax egg) in another. Add the wet to the dry and stir until just combined. Add the flax egg and gently stir until fully incorporated. Over medium heat, pour 1/2 c. batter onto the pan and spread it evenly across the pan with a spatula. Cook for about 2 minutes, and then flip and cook for another 2 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.
For the Peanut sauce, place peanut butter in a small bowl, and gradually add milk, whisking until smooth, until you reach the thickness that you want.
For the Chocolate sauce, combine the cocoa, protein powder, and coffee grounds in a small bowl. Add about 1 tbsp of milk and the honey, and stir until smooth. Gradually add more milk until you reach the thickness that you want.
For the broiled banana, slice a banana into coins and place on a medium-sized plate. Place under the broiler (we used our toaster oven) and broil for 4 minutes.
To assemble the crepes, divide the soft serve in half and spoon down the center of 2 crepes. Fold each side of the crepe over the top of the soft serve. Drizzle with both sauces and garnish with banana slices. Top with yogurt if desired.
