Grain-free paleo crepes made with almond flour and tapioca flour. Top these amazing crepes with fresh fruit, almond butter, jam, or pure maple syrup for an amazing breakfast or brunch!
When I was growing up, I thought every kid ate crepes on the weekends.
My mom served my siblings and I pancakes, waffles, or crepes regularly and allowed us to choose our favorite toppings.
It was news to me when I finally discovered crepes aren’t a regular thing in most households.
I do love the tradition of making special breakfasts on the weekends, to the extent that I carried the tradition over into my own life.
Over the last eight years, I have been making paleo pancakes, waffles, or crepes.
In fact, you may have seen the Savory Grain-Free Crepes with Roasted Asparagus I posted recently, or my Grain-Free Waffles, or my Almond Flour Pancakes.
Get a load of this plate! ^
This paleo crepe recipe is easier than its all-purpose flour counterpart, if you can believe it!
All you do to prepare the batter is toss everything in a blender, and you don’t need to wait for the batter to chill in the refrigerator the way you do with regular crepes.
How to Make Paleo Crepes:
While crepes have a fancy aura about them, they’re super easy to make. For this particular recipe, simply add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
Add a small amount of avocado oil to a non-stick skillet or griddle and heat over medium-low. Wait a couple of minutes for the skillet to get all the way hot!
Pour ⅓ cup of batter in the center of the hot skillet slowly, allowing it to pool outward into a perfect circle. If you’d like, you can carefully rotate the skillet to get thinner, bigger crepes.
Cook until bubbles rise to the top of the crepe, then carefully flip it to the other side. Continue cooking 30 seconds to 1 minute longer.
Repeat this process for the rest of the batter, and get ready for the crepe of your dreams!
Top with your favorite toppings and enjoy!
- Use hazelnut flour in place of almond flour.
- Replace tapioca flour with arrowroot flour (but don’t replace with anything else 😉
- Use any type of non-dairy milk or regular milk in place of almond milk (full-fat canned coconut milk is great!).
- Do as I did and drizzle with almond butter and raspberry chia jam with fresh raspberries, or go with sliced banana, blueberries and honey.
- Make a savory filling with your choice of protein, cheese, and vegetables.
- Make a fruit compote with fresh or frozen berries.
- Spread hazelnut butter on the inside for creamy chocolatey goodness.
- Go classic with butter and pure maple syrup.
- Drizzle with lemon juice and sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar, or make a paleo lemon curd for serving.
Can I freeze crepes?
These crepes freeze very well! I simply place them in a sealable bag and stick them in the freezer.
When I want to reheat them, I thaw them at room temperature or in the refrigerator first.
If you’d like, you can individually wrap each crepe to make the reheating process easier (or else you’ll need to thaw all leftover crepes and peel them apart).
Enjoy these beauties for weekend breakfast or brunch!

These are AMAZING! I love getting crepes on vacation... and these hit the spot. I was worried that tapioca flour would make these gooey and stretchy... but the consistency was like a regular flour crepe. 10/10 would recommend!

These worked out well! (I used arrowroot instead of tapioca and cashew milk instead of almond.) Thanks for sharing!

Love these! Didn’t want to use my blender, but whisking the eggs and milk together & slowly whisking in the flour worked really well

Thank you--this is my first attempt at a paleo crepe and the flavor and texture were great. I like a bit of a thinner crepe so I added extra milk until it was the texture I am used to and they still held together well! I am a single person so found that half the recipe was more than enough for one meal--I would probably quarter it next time, but it is also nice to have batter made up for another meal or snack ;-)

The nutrition facts are calculated for one crepe, so I have it set to one crepe per serving :D
