1 large or 2 small bananas
1 tbsp chia seeds

Oil, for cooking

1 tsp coconut oil
2 tsp rice malt syrup, maple syrup or agave
1 tsp cocoa powder

1. To make the crepe batter, combine the banana and chia seeds in a small food processor and process until smooth (alternatively, mash well by hand or mix using electric beaters).
2. Heat a non-stick pan over high heat and spray with oil or drizzle with coconut oil. When the pan is hot, reduce heat to medium and pour in the crepe mixture. Use a spatula to distribute evenly and form a relatively thin layer.
3. Cook until the surface starts to change colour and a corner of the crepe lifts easily (2-3 minutes). Monitor carefully to avoid burning! Flip and cook for a further 1-2 minutes.
4. While the crepe is cooking, make the chocolate sauce by melting the coconut oil, rice malt syrup and cocoa powder. Drizzle the sauce in and over the crepe before serving.
