Sunday Morning Grain-Free Crepes

Nov 27, 2010 by

These kind of happened by accident. I was attempting to make these coconut flour pancakes and though they tasted delicious, they sure weren’t fluffy. So Mike and I both worked in the kitchen this morning, adding and trying and tasting until we found the perfect crepe.  And though it’s technically Saturday, I named these Sunday Crepes because it feels like a Sunday due to the holiday, and well, because crepes seem like a Sunday indulgence kind of thing.

They’re light and mild and delicious with fresh fruit or butter and maple syrup or stuff them with cream cheese and fruit for blintzes! And because of the egg content and coconut flour, they are packed with protein, fiber, and healthy fat and SUPER filling. This recipe makes about 8-12 crepes, depending on the size pan you use, but you will be full after only a few I promise.

This recipe calls for arrowroot powder which I found at my local healthfood store. You can also order it here. Arrowroot powder is derived from a plant and works in much the same was as cornstarch, but is not a corn product and is gluten-free and a staple in wheat-free baking. However, it is still a starch and therefore is mostly carbohydrate, so if you’re limiting or counting carbs, you may need to watch your intake. I only use 4 Tbsp in this recipe though which evens out to about 28 g for the whole batch. I’ve posted the nutritional facts at the bottom.
