Crepes: Low Carb, Non Dairy, Gluten Free

I've never understood the appeal of pancakes: they're dry and tasteless. If you put syrup on them, they're sweet and soggy. Being mostly flour and sugar (if you put syrup on them), they really should be considered a dessert.

Crepes are a different animal: they're light and fluffy and moist if you put some butter on them. They're not too eggy-tasting. If you make them with coconut flour and don't drench them in syrup, they shouldn't jack up your blood sugar. In other words, they're real food, not dessert.






The recipe is from Cooking with Coconut Flour by Bruce Fife. It took 15 minutes to make these.

i used to think i disliked pancakes -- turns out i just hate soggy flour disks with fake maple-flavored sweet goop. ;-) a very nice griddle cake with cinnamon and a little honey on top can be made with coconut flour....

That sounds like it would taste more like bread pudding than pancakes. Heck, I'll run home and make some if that's the case.
