Coconut Flour Crepes

This is one recipe that we love, using our faithful coconut flour. It's very versatile, able to be made into a dessert with whipped cream and fresh fruit, or stuffed with ham, eggs, and cheese. We've done both and both are wonderful.

Coconut flour crepes

2 eggs
2 T butter, melted
stevia (10 drops)
1/4 tsp. vanilla
1/8 tsp. salt
2 T coconut flour (sifted)
small pinch nutmeg and cinnamon
1/3 cup milk

Whisk eggs, butter, stevia, vanilla, and salt together. Mix coconut flour and spices together. Add milk and incorporate wet mixture. Or you can do it the easy way and throw everything in your blender. That's what i do and it works fabulously without all the sifting and incorporating bondage. It will make a thin batter but have no fear, that's how crepes are. Get a non-stick pan hot with some kind of oil, i usually use coconut oil or ghee, since butter burns. Carefully pour some batter and flip after several minutes. You'll flop the first several but that makes great tasting for the twins hanging over the edge of the counter, but never for the mother of course. She has the maturity to wait until supper, depending on what you actually call "supper."

If you are making these for ham and eggs or some other kind of cream sauce, you'll want to omit the stevia and spices. Unless you're weird and like eating cinnamon with your eggs. We drink hot chocolate with cayenne in it, does that make us weird? I think we were weird long before we did that......

These crepes are also awesome with peanutbutter, bananas and honey. With a glass of raw milk of course. The raw milk helps to fill up the corners of the boys stomachs. I'm telling you, these boys of ours can eat!! I sat in amazement tonight as Eric ate close to 6 coconut flour muffins tonight for supper. They were smeared with great gobs of peanutbutter (of course!), sticky with honey and drenched in milk. All the way to the top of the bowl. Each bowl, full to the top. The last several he had with hot chocolate poured over. Marlin wasn't home for supper. What? We're weird and i'm not ashamed to say i made them muffins for supper. No meat, no veggies, just muffins. Marlin will be proud of me.....i think.......maybe i should quick go make them eat some raw carrots or liver. Look at it this way. I could've fed them hotdogs, full of nitrites and who knows what, (i love hotdogs, yum, they're almost like candy to me) placed in a white flour roll, squirted with high fructose ketchup, giving him little to no nutrition. But instead i chose to give him healthy muffins, made with organic coconut flour, lots of pastured eggs and sweetened with raw honey. I would've fed them hotdogs but i don't have any. Eric said tonight he's going to eat until he's full because he's tired of everyone making him go play before he's full. Tortured life he leads, aye? And he's skinny as a rail. Life's not fair.

Yeah, i think we don't have a choice but to move to a farm so we can afford to feed this gang.


  1. so weird you post this... I was planning on trying out crepes as my next recipe. I read up on them last night in fact! how's that for coincidence? I need just to find a recipe without coconut flour (the kids can't seem to digest it for some reason) and without milk...

    I wish you would post a pic! I'm dying to see how they turned out.

  2. I would love to post a pic.......sigh, not only can i not post pictures, i can't even take any thanks to our memory card being full and something important to do with the camera being lost. Can't keep nothin' nice around here....

  3. Karen, i can't send a crepe down your way but i would LOVE to make you some if you come our way. :)

  4. do you happen to know how many carbs per serving size and what a serving size would be? I am not familiar with coconut flour, but am interested in learning more. Do you purchase it at a special health food store?
