One of my favorite things about the weekend is spending a few extra minutes cooking breakfast and then sitting down at the table with my boys (husband included) and enjoying our meal. I usually make Paleo friendly pancakes on Saturday mornings, but find myself making crepes more and more frequently; as they have become a highly requested breakfast from my boys. These Nut Free Paleo Crepes contain collagen, are grain free, and only 5 ingredients; perfect for a simple, healthy breakfast!
Are Crepes Paleo?
So long as you're using the right ingredients, crepes are definitely a Paleo friendly food! You can make them sweet or savory and there are a variety of grain free flours to use to make crepes Paleo approved. You'll find many Paleo crepe recipes using almond flour, but these gluten free crepes are nut free and made with coconut flour and collagen.
How To Make Nut Free Paleo Crepes
The method for making Paleo crepes, well any sort of crepe, is extremely easy! All you have to do is whisk a few ingredients together to make a runny batter, pour a bit of batter on a greased, pre-heated pan and then let it cook. You can fill crepes with anything from avocado (for a more savory dish) to coconut butter to mashed berries or nut butter. Really, the options are endless.
How To Keep Paleo Crepes From Falling Apart
Now this is the ultimate question: how do you keep Paleo crepes from falling apart when you flip them? It's pretty simple for wheat based crepes to hold together because wheat flour is a very binding ingredient. What helps my recipe for Paleo Crepes hold together is collagen (or gelatin) and the cooking method. It is important to slightly grease a non-stick skillet, then pour on batter when the pan is hot. Let the crepe cook through, then flip. Flipping too early will result in a mess.
These Nut Free Paleo Crepes are sure to be a hit with the family. I prefer keeping the crepe batter simple and adding flavor through the filling and/or toppings. However, you may add spices such as cinnamon or nutmeg, or even a splash of vanilla for added flavor.
