Almond flour pancakes versus almond flour crepes
There is some confusion between crepes and pancakes, so let me help you understand the difference between them.
First, the texture of a crepe recipe batter is always thinner and more liquid than pancakes. It is because you want crepes to be larger, thin, and crispy.

Secondly, crepes can be eaten with savory or sweet fillings, while pancakes are mostly eaten sweet.
Finally, crepes are originally from France, while pancakes have been eaten first by Roman and Greek. So if you like thick crepes, use my almond flour pancake recipe. But otherwise, keep reading for a tasty, thin almond flour crepe.

Low-carb crepe filling ideas
There are many ways to appreciate those almond flour crepes. You can either add a sweet filling or a savory filling.
The best low-carb sweet crepes fillings are:
- Sugar-free crystal sweetener – the easiest and most delicious crepe is filled with sugar-free crystal sweetener. I recommend a Monk fruit crystal sweetener and a dash of cinnamon or lemon juice.
- Whipped coconut cream and berries or regular whipped cream.
- Sugar-free maple syrup – I use Monk fruit syrup as it has no carbs, no sugar, and it is natural.
- Sugar-free hazelnut spread– my chocolate hazelnut spread recipe is 100% sugar-free and keto-friendly. It is absolutely amazing in these crepes for breakfast.
- Homemade peanut butter
- Yogurt, berries, a drizzle of nut butter, and sliced almonds – If you don’t eat dairy, use dairy-free coconut yogurt. You can also use greek yogurt if you can eat dairy.
- Sugar-free chia seed jam

- In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs, ground almond, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, and sugar-free crystal sweetener of your choice. Whisk until all the ingredients are perfectly combined and no lumps form. Set aside.
- Warm a 9-inch crepe pan under medium heat, and use absorbent paper to rub the coconut oil on the pan and grease the pan.
- Scoop the crepe batter into the frying pan and tilt the pan in a circular motion to ensure that the batter coats the surface evenly. The thickness of the crepes will depend on how much batter you use for each. Usually, 1/4 cup is what you need to make a 9-inch crepe.
- Cook the crepe until the sides start to crisp up and lift off easily from the frying pan. It should take about 2 minutes each, over medium heat.
- Loosen with a spatula and flip over to cook the other side. Both sides should be lightly brown, and the crepes should be crispy on the sides and softer in the middle.
- Repeat for the next crepes.
- To serve, fill each crepe with the whipped coconut cream, fold in a triangle, and top with the fruits of your choice fresh berries, spicy plum jam, etc.
