Vegan crepes are easy sweet french crepes 100 % eggless and dairy free made with healthy spelt flour, almond milk and coconut oil

Vegan crepes – Spelt flour crepes

The most popular recipe on my blog the past 5 years has been my french crepes recipe. No surprise, I am French, I made those million times and the recipe is a no fail. Of course, since my husband is vegan, I can’t make those delicious French sweet crepes anymore. I also love healthy recipes so I worked hard to recreate my favorite french crepes recipe eggless + dairy free using healthier flour. A delicious French crepes must be:

  • Thin –  it is not a pancake it must be super thin
  • Elastic – it is easy to fold, won’t break and slightly elastic/chewy when you eat it
  • Vanilla sweet flavor – that is why the choice of flour is important. A strong flavor flour – like buckwheat, chickpea or brown rice flours – won’t make vegan crepes taste as good as the real french crepes.

I choose to make spelt flour crepes. If you are not familiar with spelt flour or can’t find it in the store use regular white wheat flour. The recipe will work too. I simply love to use spelt because it has a similar flavor to wheat flour with an extra boost of nutrientlow level of gluten – it means it is more digestible for people with a sensitivity to gluten. Plus, it has a light nutty flavor that makes those vegan crepes absolutely amazing!

Easy 5 ingredients recipe

All you need to make those crepes are:

  • White spelt flour – or white wheat flour if you can’t find spelt in your store
  • Almond milk – or any dairy free milk you like
  • Coconut oil – I used melted unrefined coconut oil, I simply love the flavor of it. If you don’t like coconut oil flavor use any other light vegetable oil like canola or avocado oil
  • Sweetener – I love my sugar free crystal sweetener but if you can eat sugar use coconut sugar (for an healthy touch) or sugar
  • Vanilla extract

Best crepes filling

Most French people spread some jam or chocolate spread into their crepes then roll or fold into a triangle shape. Some restaurant will also fold the crepes into a triangle and then drizzle the toppings on top of the crepes. Below I drizzle melted dark chodolate, peanut butter and crushed peanuts.

Gluten free vegan crepes

If you don’t tolerate gluten, I recommend you try my vegan gluten free crepes recipe. It is made of buckwheat flour, a nutrient dense flour that has no gluten. French people love buckwheat flour crepes for savory fillings but it is a also a delicious vehicle to any sweet jam, nut butters and maple syrup.

Enjoy the lovely vegan crepes !

Ingredients

Vegan crepes batter

To grease the crepe pan

  • 1 teaspoon cooconut oil - to grease the pan

Instructions

  • In a blender add all the ingredients.
  • Blend on high speed for 30 seconds. Stop, scrap the side of the blender and blend again for 30 seconds. 
  • Transfer the batter into a bowl.  If you don't have a blender, feel free to combine all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl using a whisk to avoid lumps.
  • Heat a lightly oiled crepe pan over medium/high heat. I recommend to use coconut oil and to rub the oil onto the pan using a piece of absorbent paper to avoid adding too much oil. 
  • Scoop the batter onto the pan, then tip and rotate the pan to spread batter as thinly as possible.
  • Brown on both sides about 1-2 minutes on each sides and serve hot with your favorite fillings.
Almond milk: I always start with 2 3/4 cup of liquid (any milk work here), then if you like very thin crepes you can go up to 3 cups of liquid. 
No blender? you can make this recipe in a medium mixing bowl with a manual whisk. Add the dry ingredients first then stir in the liquid. Whisk vigorously until the batter is thin and there is no lumps (that is ok if there is few small lumps, all french crepes have some and you won't feel them)

  1. I’m really struggling to stop this from sticking on my pan. I’ve tried 3 different pans with enough oil that should ensure it doesn’t stick but they always break when I try to turn them as they get stuck 🙁
    My daughter has just been diagnosed with egg allergy so I am new to eggless cooking?
    Using white wheat flour, otherwise according to recipe…

    • You must use a non-stick crepe pan or pancake griddle to make crepe or they don’t cook and stick. Another reason might be the thickness of your crepes, if you make them too thick it is more difficult to flip as well as they get heavy. Enjoy the egg free recipes on the blog for your little one. XOXO Carine.

  2. Hi there! I just made these crèpes and they are delicious, I was just wondering how long the batter will last in the fridge?


      • Hi, will try these cause I’m allergic to dairy. Also traditional French from France crepes are served with Grandmarnier with a good sprinkle of sugar, I grew up in France and I remember watching outside hockey games with crepes food trucks, my Dad still makes them like that. 😋 this is 48 years ago

        • Bonjour ! Ah Grand Marnier et sucre le grand classique prefere de maman! I am French too and my French husband is vegan so this recipe is my favorite for him. I hope you like it ! XOXO Carine.

    • Wholemeal spelt is slightly more absorbent than spelt as it contains more fibres. So I would recommend to add less minus 1/4 cup and see how the texture looks like. If it is too liquid then add more and don’t exceed the amount I used for spelt. Enjoy the crepes. XOXO Carine.


  3. These were amazing! I did them with coconut milk, and together with coconut oil, and coconut sugar they tasted so exotic! Just like the crepes I ate on Sri Lanka. Thank you!

    • YES! I am so happy you enjoy those vegan crepes. They are my husband favorite too. Enjoy the vegan recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine.

    • Hello! It won’t hold together with almond flour or you will have to do a ration of spelt and almond flour, maybe 75 %/25%. If you are vegan, another healthy crepes my husband love is my buckwheat flour crepe or chickpea flour crepes. Both are gluten free, vegan and use much healthier flour. Have a look and let me know ! Enjoy the blog recipes and thanks for trying them too. XOXO Carine.
