Almond Flour Pancakes vs 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.

Almond Flour Crepe Filling

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

Instructions

  • 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.
Storage: The crepes, unfilled, can be stored in a fridge, on a plate. Make sure you cover the plate with plastic wrap to prevent the crepes from drying out. They can be stored for up to 3 days. Rewarm on a crepe pan and fill with the filling of your choice.
Low carb sweet filling ideas: whipped coconut cream sweetened with stevia, berries, sugar-free jam, yogurt, sugar-free melted chocolate, desiccated coconut, unsweetened cocoa powder, nut butter (almond, cashew, peanut), seed butter, or even coconut butter.
Savory filling: these crepes make a delicious, savory meal as well. Don’t add the vanilla and cinnamon to the batter. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt instead.  After you cook the almond flour crepes, bring them back to the pan, add a handful of grated cheese, some ham/bacon, grilled vegetables, fold the crepes in half, and return to eat in the pan for a few minutes until the cheese is melted.  Favorite combos are cheddar + bacon + fried onion or cream cheese, spinach, and ham.
Crepes Pan: I used a 9-inch Tefal crepe pan with a non-stick coating.

    These are so good! I had them for breakfast and I have enough left over for lunch with some shredded pork. I’m so happy you made this recipe. I have missed crepes so much.

    • Hello! I am so happy to read your beautiful comment! I can’t live without crepes either 🙂 Probably my French roots ! I also recently made coconut flour crepes, low carb too and very tasty if you want a different crepes recipe for some other days. It is here. Enjoy the crepes and the low carb recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine.

    Thank you so much for sharing this recipe! They are so simple and taste fantastic. I made a “carrot cake” version by adding two finely grated carrots to the batter and increasing the cinnamon. I filled them with a cream cheese filling I sweetened with my stevia blend. I am really excited to try these again with your sugar free Nutella!

    • My pleasure! thanks SO much for taking a minte to share such a beautiful comment. I love your carrot idea! Sounds delicious. See you soon on the blog. XOXO Carine.

    These make great crepes. Instead of the vanilla and cinnamon I used garlic salt and chilli flakes (habanero) I like it spicy. And stuffed with chicken breast and cheddar. And topped with a little hellmans mayo. Amazing 🙂

    • Thanks for sharing your savory recipe ! I always eat my crepes sweet but I LOVE your idea! Delicious combo. Thanks for taking a minute to share this here. I hope you will find even more delicious recipes to try on the blog. XOXO Carine.

  4. Please clarify. You mention water in the blog post: “Yes! the dairy free French crepes recipe made with water instead of milk are thin, light and crispy with a light egg flavor.” Do you use water then (not shown in actual recipe)? Also, do you really use almond meal or almond flour? The meal seems like it would be nuttier and thicker than almond flour. Please advise. Thank you for your time.

    • Hi! I did not add water or milk in this low carb crepes recipe, follow the recipe and it will perfectly work. In my blog post I am talking about the high carb authentic Frech recipe, the one I was born with, the one that inspire me to create a low carb version (this almond flour recipe) which has a similar texture without the bad carbs. You can use whatever you like almond meal/ground almond/almond flour all are exactly the same thing. The only difference you can sometimes spot in store is darker almond meal that use unblanched almonds (the one with skin on). But any almond meal works here even superfine one. Enjoy the recipe and merry Christmas. XOXO Carine.

    I made them many times, it is a very yummy low carb crepes that I love to eat with melted cheese too – I just don’t use vanilla and cinnamon in the batter.

    • Thanks for this positive comment! I am so happy that you love those low carb crepes, my family always loves it too even the kids ! Enjoy the recipe on the blog, XOXO, Carine.

    These were so delicious. I was craving crepes so badly and this recipe truly satisfied without the guilt!

    • Thank you so much for this lovely comment! I am so glad you enjoy those crepes. It is so hard to fix a craving when you are on low carb diet! Those low carb crepes are definitely the best I made for this occasion. I am so happy that the recipe help others to fix their cravings ! Enjoy the low carb recipes on the blog. xoxo Carine.

    I used the crepe recipe this evening for our Shrove Tuesday pancakes. Added a tablespoon of melted butter to the uncooked batter to enrich it, filled the crepes with summer berries and lightly-whipped double (heavy) cream and they were delicious. My non-keto, non-low carb family agreed.

    • Hi my friend, Thanks for your lovely comment. I am so happy to read that your family loves this low carb crepe recipe. It is great to have low carb recipe that everyone can enjoy without noticing the difference. Keep browsing the blog I have got lots of low carb/keto recipe available ! Thanks for reading my blog and testing my recipe. See you soon around. xoxo Carine.
