Grain-free Crepes – Low Carb and Gluten-free

gluten-free-crepes

I’ve always struggled with grain-free crepes. They tend to fall apart because they don’t have gluten to bind things together. This recipe worked for me. They are a bit thicker than flour-based crepes, but they definitely do the trick. I have two tips that can help you reduce frustration when making grain-free crepes. First, don’t make them too big. Mine are about 4 inches across. Secondly, don’t try to flip them too early. If you do, they will break apart and you will be mad.

You could use these crepes as a grain-free tortilla replacement, if you want to make tacos. In fact, I’m about to share a special “taco” recipe…so stay tuned for that!

  1. I bought some coconut flour a while back and haven’t used yet. But this recipe looks so easy, I can’t wait to try it! Is there anything I can substitute for the almond flour (allergies)? Thanks!

      I haven’t tried substituting the almond flour. I might try quinoa flour sometime, but I’m not sure if you would have to make other adjustments. Flour substitutions can be tricky!

      Hi Paula, coconut flour is pretty unique. It doesn’t swap out easily with other alternatives without adjusting the liquids in the recipe. It would take some testing.

    What temperature do you cook these at? I used to use a medium-high temp for regular crepes, but am not sure if that is right to use for these??
