I don’t know WHY it took me so long to try making crepes! I guess I thought they seemed so delicate and challenging to flip. I could not have been more wrong. These wonderful little egg pancakes are just about the easiest breakfast food I have ever made…AND, you can fancy them up with awesome fillings to really impress your friends and family.

No one will ever have to know they are actually easy to make. Bonus: my recipe is gluten-free, so you can also reassure everyone that these are very healthy for you too! Gluten-free crepes filled with real whipped cream and drizzled with honey, yeah that’s right! It’s like having dessert for breakfast.

Gluten-Free Crepes

These wonderful little egg pancakes are just about the easiest breakfast food I have ever made...AND, you can fancy them up with awesome fillings to really impress your friends and family.

Ingredients

  • 4 Tbsp coconut flour
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • Coconut oil for frying in skillet
  • Equipment:
  • Blender
  • Stainless steel skillet
  • Thin spatula

Instructions

1. In a blender: puree eggs, coconut flour, salt, and vanilla until liquefied.

2. Pour into a bowl (it should look like the image below, no clumps!).

3. Heat skillet over medium heat.

4. Add 1/2 tsp coconut oil to the skillet.

5. Pour 2-3 Tbsp batter into skillet and tilt skillet around until batter spreads into a nice thin circle.

6. Place back over medium heat and cook until bubbles begin to form and the edges brown slightly.

7. Flip and repeat with the other side. Usually takes about 2-3 minutes per side.

  1. Just wondering the same thing… 12 crepes? Used to make crepes all the time in that 'previous' life of gluten. Filled them with creamed and sweetened cottage cheese with lime zest, topped with fresh strawberries. Oh now I am hungry!

  2. I made these today for brunch. Filled with asparagus, mushrooms and leeks, then topped with hollandaise! So good! Thanks for sharing!

    1. That sounds delicious! How did you make your hollandaise? I am trying to perfect the blender method and just can’t seem to get it right.

  3. I love your recipes and wonder if you could add a way to print them to all your options. When we are in a hurry and don't pin/post etc, it would be nice to be able to do a quick print or save!!

    1. There is a green print friendly button at the base of the posts, it is sort of hidden — sorry about that. If you click that you are given an option to “remove images” so it is a shorter print. Hope that helps. 🙂

  4. Can't have coconut – is there a different GF flour that could be substituted for the coconut flour?

  5. Hi

    Just wondering if anyone has had trouble with the crepes coming apart with coconut flour? Is there a binding agent I am missing? or perhaps a proportion of eggs to the flour that is suggested?

    Thanks

  6. I’ve just started to experiment with gluten free crepes – made my first batch last night! Having a non-sticking pan is key, isn’t it? The cast iron one I used evidently needs to be re-seasoned. 🙁

    1. non stick is key, or using a lot of butter in the pan at first to get it good and greased. It takes practice with gluten free, I have been there!!
