|Mix flour, salt, eggs, ¾ cup milk and canola oil in a food processor, blender or mixer until smooth. Place batter in a bowl; cover and refrigerate at least 30 minutes. Clean out food processor or blender; add 2 bananas, almond butter and remaining 2 Tbsp milk; process until smooth. (Or mash bananas by hand and mix with almond butter and milk.) Transfer to a small bowl.
Coat a 9-12” non-stick skillet (or crepe pan) with cooking spray and heat over medium flame. Ladle about 2-3 Tbsp of batter into skillet, then tilt pan to spread batter. Cook crepe until edges start to crisp (about 1 minute), then flip with a spatula and cook about 30 more seconds; remove from pan. Repeat with remaining batter, coating skillet with cooking spray as needed.
Slice remaining 2 bananas and strawberries. Set strawberries aside. Melt margarine in non-stick skillet, add bananas and brown sugar. Stirring gently, cook about 3-4 minutes, until brown sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat.
To assemble, spread about 1 Tbsp banana-nut butter mixture on crepe, add 1/8 of banana and strawberry slices. Roll up or fold crepe.
