Grain Free Low-Carb Coconut Flour Crepes

coconut flour crepes with berry sauce

We use these little crepes for everything- they’re fantastic on their own with butter, topped with berry syrup for a delicious breakfast, spread with peanutbutter for a traditional lunch, or even filled with taco meat and used as a tortilla.  For families that aren’t grain or gluten free, these are still great, because they’re high protein and easy for little mouths to eat.  

 

Coconut Flour Crepes

 

Makes 12 crepes

 

Ingredients:

 

12 eggs

4 tablespoons coconut flour (this is the kind I use)

1/8 teaspoon sea salt (find here)

6 teaspoons refined coconut oil or ghee, to fry (ghee here, coconut oil here)

 

Directions:

Mix all ingredients well, making sure all clumps of coconut flour are broken up. Allow to sit for a few minutes.

In a skillet over medium-low heat melt 1 teaspoon of coconut oil, tilting pan to coat.  Add about 2 tablespoons of batter and tilt to make a 6-inch circle.  Cook until bubbles start to form and the middle of the pancake looks slightly cooked. Flip gently with a thin spatula and cook until the other side is golden; about 5 minutes on the first side, 2 on the second.

 

This recipe is one of the hundreds of recipes that are part of my Grain-Free Meal Plans. The plans include GAPS-friendly, gluten-free, dairy-optional recipes for 3 meals a day, 7 days a week.   If you find yourself in a cooking rut, try just a month of the meal plans and see if that helps!  That’s why I made them- I was cooking the same thing over and over again.  Simple meal plans help us to serve a variety of simple delicious dishes to our family :)  Click here!

  1. I have an egg sensitivity. Is it possible to substitute with something else? I would love to make crepes.

  2. Do you only use the coconut oil to fry them, it’s not in the batter?

    It says 12 eggs for this recipe- I cannot believe that is true. What ‘s the typo…was it 1 – 2 eggs?
    thanks! Gitta

      I wouldn’t be surprised at 12 eggs. Any time you use coconut flour you have to use a lot of eggs. 1-2 wouldn’t be enough to go with the amount of flour used. Plus it wouldn’t make 12 crepes.

    • It’s 12, it uses about 1 egg per crepe. I usually make them a little smaller and get 16 or 18 out of the recipe.

  4. Thanks for this recipe! I’ve been wanting try grain free creeps. Do these taste super eggy or is the flavor masked with toppings? Thank you! :)

    • They’re pretty eggy, I like them with the toppings but they do taste like egg (I’ve gotten this complaint before- but grain free baking doesn’t taste like wheat baking :) )

  5. Oops, Should have typed ” to try grain free crepes”. Thanks auto correct. Haha

  6. Can this be cut in half to make a smaller batch? Can you freeze these crepes? It is only myself and my husband and we can’t eat that many up in a few days. Thanks!

  7. This looks yummy. Thanks for the recipe. What type of pan do you use?

  8. There is a paleo coconut recipe for flour tortillas and it comes out like a crepe but holds together very well. you use 1/4 cup flour 8 egg whites 1/4 tsp baking powder 1/2 cup water, if you need more water you can add to where it will spread around on the skilled like a crepe, I also put a tsp of chia seeds and I put a drop of oil in the batter instead of putting it on the skillet seem to work great can use is as a crepe or tortilla ,

  9. What type of skillet works better for these crepes – stainless or iron? I tossed my “non-stick” skillets a while back for health reasons. I was happy and surprised to find that fried & scrambled eggs don’t stick in the iron skillet – if I use enough coconut oil.
    Will this thin crepe batter stick in an iron skillet? In stainless?

    I love the plate in the picture! Where did you purchase it at?

  11. This is a God send! I’ve finally gone whole heatedly primal but struggle with meals at work as I hate carrying boxes of salad all the time, that and leaves get boring no matter what meat goes with it! Banana and cashew nut butter wrap anyone?

  12. Looks great! As it asks for 12 eggs and makes about 12 serves, to make just 4 or so serves, would it just be 4 eggs? If so, how much coconut flour would work for that?

    For the person who asked about possibly leaving eggs out all together.. I have used arrowroot powder for grain-free egg-free nut-free brownies and it binds the mix really well. Maybe try a small batch of crepes using coconut flour, salt, coconut oil, arrowroot (about the amount as you use of coconut flour), salt, and see how you go. I might try it and see what happens as my mum is allergic to eggs.

    Thanks :) Aimee

      Arrowroot is not allowed on the GAPS diet – if you are only following grain free should be fine, but not if you are doing GAPS. Thanks! :)

  13. I’m so excited to have crepes this morning. These are great! I’m wondering if you’ve tried using a bit of coconut milk to reduce the quantity or eggs at all?
    I made a half batch and so far none have made it to the plate…straight to my mouth.
    I suppose I should share with the kids.

    I also found that the cooking times are way too long though it might be my pan. I have a traditional crepe pan and it’s only taking about 2.5 minutes for the first side and 1 max for the second.
    Thanks so much for the recipe!

  14. DELICIOUS!!! I added a little vanilla for breakfast crepes and these would be delicious without the vanilla as a low-carb wrap for lunches. Thank you so much!!!
