Inspiration for this Keto Crepes Recipe
Living in the heart of France, crepes have always been more than just a meal for my family – they're almost a weekly tradition for over five years.
When I embraced a low-carb lifestyle in 2017, I initially resigned myself to the idea that crepes were a thing of the past. Recently, I've been experimenting with almond flour and low-carb sweeteners. It seems with enough creativity, most recipes can be reimagined using these two low carb ingredients.
This experimentation has lead me to create this Keto Crepes recipe... a low carb reinvention that brought the joy of crepes back into my life. I hope that you enjoy them as much as I do!
Is this Keto Crepes Recipe Truly Low Carb or Keto?
Absolutely! This Keto Crepes recipe is crafted to fit perfectly within a low-carb or ketogenic diet.
This recipe significantly reduces the carbohydrate content by substituting traditional high-carb ingredients like wheat flour with almond flour and using low-carb sweeteners instead of sugar.
The balance of wholesome, keto-friendly ingredients ensures that each crepe aligns with the nutritional requirements of a ketogenic lifestyle, providing a satisfying, low-carb alternative without compromising on taste.
What are the Ingredients to Make this Keto Crepes Recipe?
- Eggs: The foundation of the crepes, providing structure and helping to bind all the ingredients together.
- Almond Flour: A low-carb, gluten-free alternative to regular flour, giving the crepes a perfect texture while keeping them keto-friendly.
- Heavy Cream: Used in place of regular milk, it adds richness and a creamy consistency to the batter, enhancing the overall flavor.
- MCT Oil: MCT oil provides just enough fat to help keep these crepes together.
- Granulated Sweetener of Choice: A low-carb sweetener that adds sweetness without sugar, aligning with keto dietary needs.
- Salt: A pinch to balance and enhance the flavors of the crepes.
- Vanilla Extract: Adds a depth of flavor, making the crepes more delicious.
Can I use coconut flour in keto crepes?
Yes, you can use coconut flour in keto crepes, but it behaves differently than almond flour. Coconut flour is highly absorbent and requires more liquid to achieve the right batter consistency. You may need to adjust the ratio of wet ingredients in your recipe to accommodate the change in flour.
Can I use cream cheese in keto crepes?
Absolutely! Cream cheese is a great addition to keto crepes, adding a rich, creamy texture and slightly tangy flavor. It works well in both sweet and savory versions, contributing to the crepes' flexibility and moistness while keeping them low in carbs.
How to Make Your Own Keto Crepes Recipe
To whip up your Keto Crepes, start by creating a smooth batter. We are going to use a blender to ensure a uniform base for the mixture. Add the ingredients to the carafe of the blender.
Blend these ingredients until the mixture is the consistency of heavy cream. Let the batter rest for a few minutes; this step is crucial for allowing the almond flour to absorb the liquids.
Preheat a non-stick skillet over medium heat, lightly greased with a bit of MCT oil or butter. Pour a small amount of batter, swirling the pan to spread it thinly. Cook until the edges begin to lift, then gently flip to cook the other side until golden.
Repeat with the remaining batter, and you’ll have a stack of delicious, keto-friendly crepes ready to be filled with your favorite toppings or fillings.
NOTE: If the batter is too thick, these crepes will be difficult to work with.

Storage, Freezing, and Reheating Keto Crepes
Storage: Your keto crepes can be stored in the refrigerator for easy access. Place them in an airtight container, with parchment paper between each crepe to prevent sticking. They typically stay fresh for up to a week when refrigerated properly.
Freezing: For longer storage, these crepes freeze exceptionally well. Stack them with parchment paper in between each crepe and place them in a freezer-safe bag or container. They can be frozen for up to 2 months. This method is perfect for meal prep or for having a quick low-carb option on hand.
Reheating: When you’re ready to enjoy your crepes, they can be easily reheated. Warm them in a skillet over medium heat for a few seconds on each side for refrigerated crepes. It’s best to let frozen crepes thaw overnight in the refrigerator first. Once thawed, follow the same reheating method as with refrigerated crepes.
