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!
