What Is A Crepe?

A crepe or in its traditional spelling “crêpe”, is a very thin pancake-style specialty that is typical of the Brittany region of western France.

Crepes are much larger than pancakes and also much thinner, similar in shape and size to wraps. Their texture is very close to a pancake but slightly softer.

Crepes are either served with a sweet filling or with a savory filling. This recipe will give you 6 delicious sweet crepes.

How To Pronounce Crepe

Pronouncing crepes like the French way can be tricky, but the best approximation is “krep”, though try to make a guttural “r”.

The final “e” is silent and the first “e” is the same as in “best”.

What Should Crepes Look Like?

One of the most popular recipes on my blog is my French crepe recipe. This is the vegan version so that everyone can enjoy the classic taste of a crepe.

Classic French Crepes are served with fillings or flambeed like for my Crepe Suzette Recipe.

A delicious French crepe must be:

  • Thin –  it’s not a pancake, it must be super thin.
  • Elastic – it’s easy to fold, won’t break, and is slightly elastic/chewy when you eat it.
  • Vanilla sweet flavor – that’s 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.

How To Make Vegan Crepes

Since classic crepe recipes aren’t vegan, let me show you how to make vegan crepes!

Ingredients

The ingredients you need to make these egg-free 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 like coconut milk or soy milk.
  • Coconut Oil – I used melted unrefined coconut oil, I simply love the flavor of it. If you do not like the 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 a healthy touch) or sugar.
  • Vanilla Extract

Making The Batter

Making eggless crepes is relatively easy. First, blend all the ingredients together – using a blender makes this a breeze.

Then the two keys to making perfect crepes are a hot crepe pan and an even spread of the crepe batter.

If you are adventurous, you can then try to flip the crepe without touching it.

Once the first side is crispy, lightly brown, and does not stick to the pan anymore, hold the panhandle firmly.

Then with a quick but strong movement of the wrist, throw the crepe in the air.

You need enough rotational momentum to make it land on its other side.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are Traditional Crepes Vegan?

No, a traditional crepe contains eggs and milk, but this recipe is 100% vegan!

What Can I Put In Vegan Crepes?

Traditionally, sweet crepes have been eaten with raw sugar, lemon juice, or maple syrup.

Nowadays, the more common fillings are jam (any jam!) or chocolate spread.

Just roll or fold your crepes into a triangle shape and eat while they are still warm. I like to drizzle melted dark chocolate, peanut butter, and crushed peanuts.

Are Vegan Crepes Gluten-Free?

Traditional crepes are not gluten-free. This vegan crepe recipe uses spelt flour, it’s not gluten-free either.

However, if you are after a gluten-free option, I recommend you try my gluten-free crepe recipe or my vegan gluten-free crepe recipe.

It is made with buckwheat flour, a nutrient-dense flour that has no gluten.

Buckwheat flour crepes are often preferred with savory fillings but it is also delicious with sweet jam, any nut butter, and maple syrup.

Enjoy this lovely crepe recipe without eggs!

Ingredients

Vegan crepes batter

To grease the crepe pan

Instructions

  • In a blender, add all the ingredients.
  • Blend on high speed for 30 seconds. Stop, scrape 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 using coconut oil and rubbing 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 the batter as thinly as possible.
  • Brown on both sides for about 1-2 minutes on each side 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 are no lumps (that is ok if there are a few small lumps, all French crepes have some, and you won’t feel them).

    • 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.

    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.
