Unsweetened almond milk – or water but honnestly almond milk add an delicious texture too without the carbs so go for it!

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 create the perfect results. I had lots of success baking with coconut flour like in my low carb chocolate mug cake or low carb coconut flour porridge.

1tablespoonalmond mealalso known as almond flour/ground almond
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 form 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 oil 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 batter as thinly as possible. Brown on one side first, cook 2-3 minutes until the sides are crispy and un stick easily from the pan. The center should be set and dry before you flip over to avoid the crepe to break.
Brown on other sides about 1-2 minutes and serve hot with your favorite fillings - see recipe note for inspiration.
Storage: you can store your crepes on a plate, covered with plastic wrap, in the fridge up to 2 days. Rewarm in the pan few minutes, add filling and enjoy.
Low carb filling ideas: nut butter (almond butter, peanut butter, coconut butter), yogurt, cream cheese, raspberries, monk fruit sugar or erythritol, sugar free chocolate chips, sliced almond, seeds or crushed peanuts etc. In the picture I used almond butter, erythritol and fresh raspberries.
