Buckwheat crêpes with caramelised banana

Rob’s buckwheat crêpes were a regular on Easter Sundays, Christmas mornings or any special occasion. A warm stack of them with Canadian maple syrup, seasonal fruits, caramelised banana or berries is heavenly.

Serves 6


Caramelised banana
  • 2 bananas, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons runny honey
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1½ cups oat milk
  • 2 eggs
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter or coconut oil
  • Mixed fruit and berries
  • Maple syrup


1. To caramelise the banana, heat the runny honey and butter in a small pan. When the butter has melted, add the banana. Sauté on medium heat for 2-3 minutes until the banana starts to turn golden. Set aside.

2. Whisk all crêpe ingredients in a medium bowl until it has a smooth, thin consistency. Heat a small knob of butter or coconut oil in a medium to large pan. Add a 1/4 cup of batter into the pan and tilt it around until the batter is spread thinly across the pan.

3. Cook for a minute, or until you see air bubbles forming on the surface of the crêpe. Flip the crêpe over and cook for another minute or until it turns golden.

4. Repeat until all of the crêpe mixture has been used and stack onto a plate to serve. Top with caramelised banana, berries and maple syrup – enjoy!
