Coconut flour crepes – gluten-free and keto
There is no secret about this, I am a crepe fan. Well, I am French meaning that eating crepes is a bit of a tradition, a cultural thing. Since I started a low-carb keto diet years ago, I created many low-carb crepe recipes.
My all-time favorite is the low-carb almond flour crepes recipe. But some days, I like to bake with different flours so keto crepes with coconut flour, here you are!
Easy crepe recipe with 6 ingredients
All you need to make delicious coconut flour crepes are 6 simple low-carb ingredients.
- Coconut flour – make sure you use fresh coconut flour with no lumps for perfect results
- Almond meal – also known as ground almond or almond flour – don’t be tempted to replace by more coconut flour it won’t create the same fluffy light crepes! Coconut flour is very liquid absorbent and if you don’t respect the ratio, it will end up dry and crumbly.
- Canned Coconut cream – the thick one from the can, don’t skip this ingredient. Trust me, it makes the texture that much better.
- Unsweetened almond milk – or water but honestly almond milk adds a delicious texture without the carbs, so go for it!
- Vanilla extract – optional if you want to use these crepes for a savory breakfast, add herbs and salt instead.
Keto crepes with coconut flour
Coconut flour is one of my favorite low-carb flour. It is not the easiest to bake with at first, because it is highly liquid absorbent and you have to balance this with lots of eggs, milk, or another flour to get the perfect result.

Crepe filling ideas – sweet and savory options!
So if you are on a low-carb diet right now and craving a delicious guilt-free sweet dessert or breakfast my keto coconut flour crepes are the one you need! The best low-carb crepe fillings are listed below.
I recommend adding the crepe filling in the crepe before folding. Return the crepe to the crepe pan to melt the sweetener, nut butter, or cheese for a savory version. Fold in triangle or roll as a wrap to serve.
- Nut butter or seed butter- peanut butter, almond butter, sunflower butter.
- Yogurt or cream – dairy-free coconut cream or yogurt, yogurt, heavy cream, or whipped cream.
- Sweetener – sugar-free crystal sweetener – erythritol, Monk fruit or sugar-free flavored maple syrup, sugar-free powdered erythritol.
- Fresh berries – raspberries, strawberries, or blueberries – make sure you pick a keto-friendly fruit!
- Dried ingredients – unsweetened desiccated coconut, sliced almonds, crushed peanuts, unsweetened cocoa powder.
- Savory filling – for a savory crepe, opt for cheese, ham, bacon, fried mushrooms, spinach, fried eggs.
The texture of those keto coconut crepes is light, fluffy, and similar to the French crepes I used to eat before.

- In a large mixing bowl, add all the ingredients in this order: eggs, melted coconut oil, almond milk, coconut cream, vanilla extract, coconut flour, and almond meal.
- Using a whisk or electric mixer, beat until a smooth batter forms with no lumps. Set aside for 10 minutes to allow the coconut flour to soak the liquid and thicken the batter slightly.
- Heat a lightly-oiled mini egg pan over medium/high heat. I used coconut oil that I rub on the pan with a piece of absorbent paper. My pan is a mini non-stick egg pan size 4.7 inches (12 cm). I recommend a small saucepan of this size to make perfect crepes that won't break.
- Pour 1/4 cup of the crepe batter onto the pan, then tip and rotate the pan gently to spread the batter as thinly as possible. Brown on one side first, cook 2-3 minutes until the sides are crispy, and unstick easily from the pan. The center should be set and dry before you flip over to prevent the crepe from breaking.
- Brown on other sides for about 1-2 minutes and serve hot with your favorite fillings - see recipe notes for inspiration.
