Peanutella Crepes

Aug 24, 2010Baked Goods & Desserts, Recipes

Inspired by the Nutella crepes sold on the streets of Paris, this decadent-tasting dessert packs a healthful nutritional punch.

Peanut flour is available for purchase online at The American Peanut Shellers Association.

SERVES 8 (2 crepes per serving)

1/3  cup creamy peanut butter
3/4  cup confectioners’ sugar
2  tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
powder, sifted
2  cups skim milk, divided
3  large eggs, lightly beaten
3/4  cup all-purpose flour
1/4  cup light peanut flour (28%)
1/4  teaspoon salt


  1. Stir the peanut butter, sugar, and cocoa powder together in a large bowl. Add 2 tablespoons of the milk and beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until very thick, about 30 seconds. Add 1 tablespoon of the milk and beat 30 seconds. Add 1 tablespoon of the milk and beat until thick and creamy, about 1-2 minutes; set aside.
  2. Make the crepes: Combine the remaining 1 3/4 cups milk and eggs in a bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, peanut flour and salt. Whisk the milk mixture into the flour mixture until smooth; let rest at least 20 minutes or overnight.
  3. Heat an 8-inch nonstick skillet over medium. Lightly coat the skillet with cooking spray. Whisk the batter and pour a scant 1/4-cup into the skillet, tilting in all directions to evenly cover the bottom. Cook until the crepe is set and lightly browned on the bottom, about 1-1 1/2 minutes. Turn the crepe over and cook 20 seconds longer. Transfer to a plate and repeat with the remaining batter.
  4. Working one at a time, lay a crepe on a plate and spread the half closest to you with 2 teaspoons of the peanut butter mixture. Roll up jellyroll style and repeat.
