Paleo Crepes with Coconut Whipped "Cream"

On the weekends when Dave is not working, we always do big breakfasts. Crepes with strawberries is one of Dave's favorites. We were both quite happy to find a paleo-friendly crepe recipe and now make it almost every weekend.

From Girl Gone Primal, serves four


100 grams almond flour
4 eggs
3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted, plus extra for pan
1/2 cup water
1 cup strawberries, sliced

1/2 can coconut milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, optional
1 teaspoon honey or maple syrup, optional


For the coconut whipped "cream", spoon the top thick layer of coconut milk from the top of the can into the bowl of the stand mixer. You can use the runnier coconut milk at the bottom of the can but it will not yield as stiff of whipped cream.

Using the whisk attachment, beat the coconut milk until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla and sweetener, if using, and beat to combine. Set aside.

For the crepes, combine flour, eggs and oil in a large bowl. Stir well. Gradually add the water whilst stirring, until the desired consistency is reached. For crepes, the mixture should be runny. For pancakes, use only about half of the water.

Heat coconut oil in a large pan. Add about a quarter of the batter to the pan and swirl gentle until the batter covers the bottom.

Cook until it begins to borwn and bubbles form in the middle. Flip the crepes gently. Cook the second side until it begins to brown.

Remove from heat and serve immediately topped with strawberries and whipped "cream".




  1. I had no idea you could whip coconut milk - must try this! I'm lactose intolerant and watch my gluten/wheat intake so this recipe is perfect! (PS thanks for stopping by my blog - so glad I discovered yours!)

  2. Believe me it is heaven! Best part is you don't need to have whipping cream waiting in the fridge - I always have coconut milk handy in the pantry for whenever a craving hits.

  3. For those who do not like to weigh baking ingredients, 100 g of almond flour is approximately 1 cup
