This paleo crepes recipe is grain free and a deliciously healthy way to keep the carb count low and the sophisticated breakfast satisfaction high.
Crepes are made with very few ingredients and are of such a unique and delicate consistency and appearance, it’s hard to imagine how any an alternative recipe (a healthier one, no less) could come close to striking the perfect balance. Fortunately, it can be done!
Traditionally, crepes are made with flour, eggs, milk and butter. They are thin, soft and often filled with both sweet and savory additions, such as bananas and Nutella or ham and cheese. If you are trying to avoid flour or any gluten and grain for that matter, this paleo crepes recipe is for you. It contains the usual suspects – eggs – but prefers vegan milk over regular milk, arrowroot powder over white flour, stevia over sugar and coconut oil over butter. It’s a low-glycemic, high-protein breakfast dish that will have you diving in for seconds, thirds and even fourths.
Enjoy with you choice of fillings. I personally like mine simple with just a smidgen of coconut butter, but you can add in fruits, a coconut milk cream or other goodies.
Easy Paleo Crepes Recipe
From the Organic Authority Files
- ¾ cup arrowroot powder
- 1.5 cups vegan milk (almond or coconut)
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 4 eggs
- 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil + more for cooking
- 3 drops liquid stevia (optional)
Blend all ingredients until well combined and there are no lumps or chunks throughout the batter. Add a bit of coconut oil to a flat non-stick pan over medium heat. Pour in about ¼ cup of the batter and use the back of a spoon to spread the mixture into a circle. Once the batter begins to set (takes up to 1 minute), flip and cook for just 3-5 seconds on the other side. Enjoy!
