1 Tsp Orange Olive Oil or melted butter
1/8 Tsp Baking Powder
1/4 Tsp Vanilla
1/8 Tsp Splenda, Sugar, or Honey
1 Ea Banana
1 Tsp Sugar Free Vanilla Syrup
5 Ea Large Strawberries, sliced
2 Tbl Whipped Cream to garnish
1. Combine all ingredients into a bowl and mix.
2. Pour 1/4 cup onto a preheated crepe maker or use a saute pan that has been sprayed with a non stick spray or drizzled with butter. Swirl the pan until the batter stops moving.
3. The batter will take about 15 seconds to cook. As soon as the batter is no longer wet slide it onto a plate and repeat the process for the remaining crepes.
4. Puree the banana and the sugar free vanilla syrup until smooth.
5. To assemble - Drizzle some of the banana mixture down the center of a crepe. Add some sliced strawberries and gently fold the crepe over and place on a plate. Don't worry if it is not perfect or some strawberries fall out. Cooking is about having fun so don't get stressed now!
6. Once all crepes are completed top with additional strawberries and finish with some whipped cream.

Baking powder is not a typical ingredient you will find in a crepe but it gives just a tad bit more body. The extra body makes the crepe easier to work with and eliminates the need to refrigerate a traditional crepe batter for an hour or more to allow time for air bubbles to be released. The extra body also satisfies those who find traditional crepes too "light weight and wimpy".
If you are planning on a savory filling omit the vanilla and sweetener.
