Does anybody have a good crepe recipe? My daughters have a crepe stand in the local farmers' market.

Tried coconut flour. Not so good.

I have tried to make crepes before out of coconut flour and ended up just making a dreadful mess, but the lady in this video seems to be able to pull it off.

I haven't tried it yet, but plan on trying it soon especially since she claims that if you put some of these low carb crepes in the oven at 180 degrees, you can even make crackers out of them.

Of course, she uses honey, but she says that is optional and I'm sure stevia would work just fine.

I am going to use one of those orgreenic nonstick pans, but I imagine any non-stick pan would work. Not sure about a regular crepe pan though.

I read somewhere that using a sifter and sifting coconut flour first helps. Haven't tried that yet either cuz I don't have a sifter yet.

P.S. I just tried this just for the heck of it, and used her technique of adding the coconut flour in 1/2 tbls increments until I had the right consistency for a crepe and they came out great. I did used a magic bullet though for an easy way to get rid of any coconut flour clumping.

I didn't have coconut creme on hand so had to use water, but if your daughters are selling crepes at the farmer's market, water versus coconut creme would lower their overhead.

I wanted to make them much larger too since her crepes seemed way too small to put any fillings in. Since my orgreen pan hasn't arrived yet, I had to just use a teflon griddle which I didn't expect very good results from, but I was pleasantly surprised.

I made two very large crepes and they flipped with a pancake turner so I imagine with a proper crepe pan, they would flip just like regular crepes.

Don't know if anyone else has any recipes for low carb crepes or not. If so, maybe they will chime in.

These are fabulous--I eat them nearly every day!

There's a "flax wrap" in Wheat Belly that would probably be suitably thin if a little less flax was added to it. It has a pleasant flavor.

The folks over on LC Friends tell me this recipe is good. The author is a great cook, so I suspect they are. But I haven't tried them myself yet, as I'm trying to reduce my intake of baked and sweet foods. But if I decided to indulge in crepes, I was planning on trying her recipe first!

I use a mix of eggs, cream cheese, vanilla and a scoop of soya protein mix. I know that lots of people don't like to use protein shake mixes, but this is high in protein and very low in carbs. it also bakes well. You need to use a hand blender to het the lumps out before you cook it. I serve with a few strawberries and a dollop of cream. But it could just as easily be used as a bread alternative for a sandwich.
