For the crepes:

For the sauce:

  • ¼ cup hazelnut-chocolate spread like Nutella
  • 2 large firm unpeeled bananas or an equivalent of 1 3/4 pounds
  • 2 tbsp. milk fat-free
  • ¼ tsp. vanilla extract
  • Powdered sugar optional


  • To prepare the crepes, place all the dry ingredients (under the crepe ingredients) into a medium bowl and mix with a whisk. In a separate bowl, add the milk and eggs, beating the mixture with a whisk.   Next, incorporate the dry and wet mixtures together and bat again.  Cover the already made batter and refrigerate for about 15 minutes.
  • Get your skillet over a medium flame and coat with cooking spray. Temporarily remove the pan from the flame and pour ¼ cup batter into the pan, consequently tilting the pan to spread the batter, covering the pan with a thin spread. Cook this for about 1 minute or until it solidifies to form a tanned crepe.
  • Using a spatula, carefully lift the edges and flip onto the other side. Just cook the flip side for about half a minute.
  • Get the crepe and put over a towel, then repeat the first procedure. Pile the crepes with wax paper in between each to avoid sticking.
  • For the sauce, blend together the hazelnut-chocolate spread (or Nutella if you have it), milk, and vanilla extract into a small saucepan. Put the pan onto a medium flame and continuously stir the ingredients until its consistency becomes smooth.  Keep the choco-hazelnut sauce warm.
  • Peel the bananas and cut them into a lengthwise cut, and then into crosswise. Assemble the 4 banana pieces in a single layer onto the pan and cook until they are lightly tanned. Flip each piece and cook for another one minute.  Remove the first batch of bananas and do the same with the remaining pieces.
  • Put one banana piece at the very centre of the crepe and fold each side until the banana is covered. Put the filled crepe with the seam down against the plate. Finish up arranging until all bananas are covered.
  • Put the sauce into a sauce bowl (you can also prepare a sauce for each individual). Sprinkle crepes with powdered sugar, serve and enjoy with your family!

Chocolate Hazelnut Crepes Made in an Oven

To prepare this delectable chocolate hazelnut crepe, begin by making the crepe batter according to the original recipe, allowing it to rest for 30 minutes for optimal consistency. While the batter rests, preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). When ready, use an oven-safe skillet or a designated crepe pan, lightly brushing it with vegan butter or oil. Pour a ladleful of batter into the center, swiftly tilting and rotating the skillet to achieve a thin, even spread. Bake in the preheated oven for 5-7 minutes until the crepe’s edges lightly brown. Remove the skillet, promptly spread a generous amount of chocolate hazelnut spread over half of the crepe, and fold it in half, then again to form a quarter-circle. Return it to the oven for an additional 2-3 minutes to let the chocolate hazelnut spread melt within. Once done, place the crepe on a plate and serve immediately, repeating the process with the remaining batter for a delightful treat.

Tips for making Chocolate Hazelnut Crepes

Cooking Tips

The first tip for making exceptional chocolate hazelnut crepes is care in preparing the batter. Thinness is key—too thick and you lose the delicate texture that defines a crepe; too runny, and it won’t hold the gentle structure. A rested batter is another tip worth heeding. Allowing it to sit for an hour brings together the flavors and improves the texture, though the anticipation of the coming treat might make this step feel longer than it is!

When it comes to the cooking process, patience, paired with a warm non-stick pan and just a dab of butter, ensures your crepes won’t stick or tear. There’s an undeniable joy in mastering the wrist-twirling technique to spread the batter thinly and evenly. The crepe should be just kissed by the pan until it’s light gold—it’s that fleeting moment of transformation that always strikes me as a little magical.

The filling is where the soul of the dish truly comes alive—the marriage of chocolate and hazelnuts. Personally, I find a generous spread of chocolate hazelnut spread makes for a sumptuous heart, though not too much to overpower the subtlety of the crepe. For texture, a sprinkle of crushed toasted hazelnuts invites a delightful contrast to the silken chocolate.

Folding the crepe is an expression of your personal touch. Some may prefer a simple fold, others an elegant roll, or perhaps a fan of crepe quarters for a visually stunning plate. Let your mood guide you; there’s no wrong way to present such a lovingly crafted dish.

Finally, garnishing with a dusting of powdered sugar, a few delicate slices of strawberry, or a drizzle of warm chocolate sauce, can elevate the experience. Eating the crepe is a moment of pure comfort, where each element of flavor and texture plays its role harmoniously.

  • Can I store leftover Chocolate Hazelnut Crepes? Certainly! Once cooled, place them in an airtight container with parchment paper between each crepe to prevent sticking. They’ll last in the refrigerator for up to two days.
  • How can I reheat the stored crepes? For best results, gently warm them in a skillet over low heat until the chocolate hazelnut spread melts slightly. You can also microwave them for 10-15 seconds, but ensure they don’t get too soggy.
  • What if I don’t have chocolate hazelnut spread on hand? Feel free to get creative! You can use chocolate syrup, peanut butter, jam, or any other spread you fancy. Each will lend a unique flavor to your crepes.
  • Why are my crepes tearing while flipping? If your crepes tear, it might be because they are too thin or they haven’t cooked long enough before flipping. Ensure the batter spreads evenly and give it ample time to set before attempting to flip or fold.
  • Can I make the batter in advance? Yes, the crepe batter can be made a day in advance. Store it covered in the refrigerator. Give it a good stir before using, and you might need to thin it slightly with a bit of water or plant-based milk.
