I’m on a crepe kick! I mean, how can I not be? They are so easy to make, one batch of batter makes a good amount, and my kids and husband just love them so why not keep on crepe’ing on? Right? 

The best part about crepes is one batter, so many fillings! Kind of like pancakes. Well, exactly like pancakes, because a crepe is essentially just a very, very thin pancake that you stuff and top with all kinds of good fillings, like this cream cheese and sour cream crepe filling. 

Plus, this sweet crepes filling makes perfect use of overripe bananas and other pantry staples. Crepes also make a great surprise breakfast when you’re bored of the same old, same old. Surprise your loved ones this weekend with a delicious crepes breakfast!

HOW DO YOU MAKE BANANA CREPE FILLING? 

Making this breakfast crepe filling is super easy, and you could even make it the night before if you want to speed up your crepe filling (and devouring) process. 

In a medium bowl, mix together the cream cheese and sour cream, followed by the powdered sugar and vanilla. 

Then, in a skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Once the butter is melted, add the brown sugar and cinnamon. Keep stirring the butter/sugar/cinnamon mixture until the sugar begins to caramelize. 

Now, add the bananas by gently stirring them into the butter mixture, cooking for 2-3 minutes until they are caramelized. Take them off of the heat once this occurs. 

And on to the best part: filling and eating! Fill the crepes with the sour cream mixture, then top with the caramelized bananas. Need an easy crepes recipe? Grab it here!

WHAT TO DO WITH EXCESS BANANAS 

We’ve all been there…staring at a big bunch of bananas wondering what to do with all of them. Or hoping you can get enough people in your house to eat the ones that are turning brown because you can’t (I hate eating brown bananas). 

I seem to never know the right amount. Buy too few, and they are gone in two days, buy too many, and suddenly no one is feeling bananas. What’s a girl to do? Plenty! There are sooo many ways to use up old bananas! Here are a few of my favorites:

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF EATING BANANAS? 

I’m sure you all know that bananas are good for you. Yes, even in the sweet stuff, you’ll still benefit from all the goodness that bananas offer, such as: 

They will provide about 10% of your recommended daily allowance of vitamin C, which your body needs to protect itself against cell and tissue damage. Vitamin C also helps your body absorb iron and produce collagen. 

Potassium! You know that bananas are a great source of potassium, but do you know why you need this essential mineral? Well, because it’s great for your heart, your blood pressure, and it’s also good for relieving cramps.

Bananas are also good for your stomach when you have an upset one. They contain fiber and are easy to digest. They are also good for heartburn prevention. 

They are great snacks and provide lots of energy. That’s why they give them out after races and sporting events a lot. The sugars in them (sucrose, fructose, and glucose) give you a boost of energy without any added fat or cholesterol.
