Protein Crepes (Low-Carb, Keto, Gluten-Free)
Protein Crepes are healthy, low-carb, high-protein, and gluten-free breakfast crepes made of simple ingredients and only 1.8 grams of net carbs.
A sweet keto breakfast recipe, perfect to refuel after a workout.
What Are Protein Crepes?
Crepes are delicious healthy breakfast or dessert options that come in many fashions. Protein crepes are high-protein versions of classic crepes, typically made by adding more eggs to the batter.
Protein crepes are high in protein but low in carbs.
How To Make Protein Crepes
Protein Crepes are a delicious post-workout breakfast recipe.
This protein crepe recipe is made without protein powder, so this one is made of 3 simple required ingredients.
- Egg white – I am using a regular size egg size. I keep the egg yolk to make a custard. You can also buy organic egg white directly from the store. It makes the recipe faster. Eggs are perfectly keto-friendly.
- Coconut flour – don’t be fooled by the ‘flour’. This is keto-friendly flour. Coconut flour is coconut meat ground finely into flour. It is full of fiber, so good for your gut, has a good amount of protein, and is very keto-friendly.
- Unsweetened almond milk – feel free to use unsweetened almond milk or vanilla unsweetened almond milk if you want to add a hint of vanilla to your crepes.
- Sugar-free crystal sweetener – optional. I like my protein crepes sweet, so I am adding Monk fruit crystal sweetener to this recipe. If you want to eat those savory, replace them with 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt.
- Cinnamon – this is entirely optional, just something I love to add to my crepes.
Tips and Tricks
These protein crepes are very easy to make.
My three tips to make the most beautiful and delicious crepes will be:
- Measure your egg white in cups or grams! I am using regular size eggs, but it is more precise if you measure the egg white in volume or weight. Same for the coconut flour. Weigh it if unsure of your tablespoon measurement.
- Use a stand mixer to gently mix the batter. This ensures there is no coconut flour lump in your batter. Don’t use a manual whisk, or it will result in lots of lumps. You can also use a blender on low speed, the one for soup, not for smoothies, don’t over blend it, 30 seconds max. Also, if you use the immersion blender method, use a bowl with a high border to avoid the mess! Your batter must be slightly thicker than a regular crepe recipe, closer to a pancake batter, slightly thick and grainy.
- Don’t swirl the pan to spread the crepes! This is NOT a regular french crepe recipe. I found it easier to scoop 1/4 cup batter in the center of my hot greased non-stick Tefal pan. Then use the back of a tablespoon, and starting from the center of your batter, make motion circles to spread the batter from the center to the side and form a round crepe. It takes time and practice to have the perfect motion circle move – see my recipe video – but as soon as you get it, your protein crepes will be beautiful.
To fill these crepes, you can try the following healthy, low-carb fillings:
- Protein yogurt or Greek yogurt
- Raspberries, strawberries, and blueberries
- Coconut flakes
- Kiwifruit slices
- Nut butter like peanut butter or almond butter
- Dairy products like cream cheese unsweetened whip cream
You can store these protein crepes in the fridge, on a plate, covered with plastic wrap to prevent them from drying out for up to 4 days in the fridge.
Rewarm them on a hot pan for 1 minute or microwave for 30-45 seconds.
