#Grain-free #Gluten-free #Paleo Protein Crepes

These beautiful ripe berries in the strawberry planter in our balcony container garden inspired me this morning...

to make some delicious and easy grain-free protein crepes. 

I thought I would share them with you in case you hadn't seen them yet. They are made with a few simple ingredients, and are grain-free, therefore gluten-free, and also suitable for those of you following the Paleo food plan... if you don't put yogurt on top of them cause there is no dairy on the Paleo plan.

I did blog about them a while back on my food blog We can begin to feed...  and my post has a link to the original recipe at Gabby's Gluten Free, along with some tips on how to put them together and some pictures of the process as I made them.  You can find my calculations for the Nutritional Information as well.

The basis for these crepes are coconut flour and ground flax and eggs... they are high in protein and in fibre and heavier than a flour crepe.... but just wonderful.  They are not sweet at all so I like to put fruit on them and a bit of yogurt, but you could put nut butter or syrup or honey on them if you like.  I think they might be good at dinner too, with a tomato or creamy white sauce.

Give them a try!

I would love to know what you think.


  1. Yum! I'm thinking a coconut cultured yogurt would be perfect on top!

  2. Yum! I think I am envious more of the homegrown strawberries! I need to try that next year! :)

  3. Yum, those look good! I have never tried Coconut flour! How does it hold up? I have a GF friend who says she doesn't bake much because the GF flours don't hold up as well!

  4. These look fantastic and something I would like to try! Thanks for sharing.


Love it when you leave me a comment!
