If you have been to Paris, then you have probably had a Nutella crepe and possibly of Banana-Nutella crepe. And when you arrived home after your amazing vacation you most likely went to the store, got yourself a little jar of Nutella and came home and made yourself some crepes! I know that after every trip I make to Paris, one of the first things I want to make are crepes, it keeps the illusion that you haven’t left the City of Light alive in your heart. It’s been a year and 3 months since I was last there – when Dave, Connor, and I went over to join Marissa for a wonderful 2-week vacation. Needless to say, we had to bring her home, kicking and screaming, after her magical “semester abroad!” Plus my mentor and dear friend, Barbara Pool Fenzl, owner of Les Gourmettes Cooking School, just left this very day for France, so in her honor, I made not crepes – since there is no one here to eat them with me 🙁 But instead cookies. As we all know, you can freeze cookies and share with loved ones when the come home to visit from college!
NOTE: In the “ingredients” photo at the top, you’ll notice that the bananas are quite brown. This is because once bananas become ripe on my counter, and I don’t have the time to bake, I place them in either the refrigerator or the freezer. Either option turns the skins brown as brown can be. If refrigerated, use within a few days and if frozen, best within a few weeks.
