Chocolate Hazelnut Crepes Recipe

Ingredients

4 bananas
1 cup hazelnuts
1/2 cup agave nectar
1/4 cup cacao powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean

Method

Mash the bananas by processing them in a food processor, or by mashing by hand with a fork until they are very smooth.

If you are using a food dehydrator, spread the bananas on the Teflex sheet and dehydrate at 108°F for four hours. If you are using the oven, spread parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Spread the mashed bananas over this sheet and dry it in a very low oven. Keep the door open during this time.

To prepare the hazelnuts, put them in a food processor or grinder and grind them until they resemble flour. Add the rest of the ingredients and continue processing until the filling is smooth.

Remove the crepe from the dehydrator. Spread the filling over the crepe and roll it up. Cut the chocolate hazelnut crepes into serving pieces and enjoy.
