Who said the French couldn’t take a Japanese staple and create their own delicious rendition? This time around, ditch the ahi, wasabi, and rice for the lusciously sweet crêpe and its partner-in-crime, the one and only regal ambrosia known as Nutella.

Don’t worry about packing on the fat, this delish recipe features the lovely, potassium-rich banana. So enjoy this sweet treat, created in the Japanese style, using traditional French ingredients, and incorporating fruit too. All in all, c’est parfait.
