Perfectly lacy crêpes, without gluten or eggs! 

These beauties are both delicious and low in sugar. They contain just 9 simple ingredients, which are mainstays of the gluten free pantry. These come together with 15 minutes of active cook and prep time, but to achieve the best results we highly advise letting your batter rest for 30 minutes. Use this time to whip up your 5 Minute Berry & Chia Jam, if you are using it. Gluten free flour will make the crêpes a little stickier and more delicate than usual, so be sure to cook the crêpes until golden on the bottom, with the edges starting to crisp and pull away from the pan. Add more vegan butter as needed to prevent sticking. Cooking the crêpes on too high a heat will cause them to burn before the batter sets, so a medium-high heat is the perfect setting!

Variations of these crêpes have been a client favourite when I do restaurant and brand consulting, and they have seen a range of sweet and savoury toppings. Don’t be afraid to stray from the recipe, as poached and roasted fruit, and even the classic lemon and brown sugar topping, is so delicious here. You can also go savoury with a creamy and coconut mushroom ragu or fill them with a mixture of greens and vegan cheese (served alongside a herb salad) for a perfect light supper situation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make these savoury?

Absolutely! Enjoy this dish with sweet or savoury fillings. We love serving these as a quick weeknight dinner, filled with sautéd mushrooms finished with a little coconut cream and fresh herbs. Delicious!

Troubleshooting your crepes:

As these crepes use gluten free flour they are a little more delicate.
Cook your crepes on a medium heat, and only attempt to flip them once the base is golden and the edges are pulling away from the pan. 
Let the batter rest for 30 minutes if you can – this makes the crepes easier to handle.

Lacy Gluten Free Vegan Crêpes


  • Author: Jess Bunn
  • Total Time: 45 Minutes
  • Yield: 6 - 8 Crêpes
  • Diet: Vegan

Description

Vegan, gluten free, and unbelievably delicious! These crepes are so easy to whip up and simply addictive. 


Ingredients

Units

For the Crêpes

  • 3 Tablespoons vegan butter (the melting variety)
  • 1 cup/125g all-purpose gluten free flour
  • 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups Barista Oat Milk or Soy Milk (use a milk similar in consistency to full cream milk)
  • 1 cup room temperature water
  • 1/8 tsp Xantham gum (optional if your flour already has it)
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp Flax meal
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

For Serving

  • 1 Quantity 5 Minute Jam, or sweetener of choice
  • 250g Vegan cream cheese, or whipped coconut cream

Instructions

  1. Add the dry ingredients to a bowl. Make a well and whisk in the milk and water, until the batter is well combined.
  2. Rest the batter for at least 30 minutes for best results.
  3. Heat a non-stick pan and melt the vegan butter over medium high heat. Add the butter to your batter and whisk until well combined.
  4. Ladle your batter into your non-stick pan, and swirl it quickly to cover the base in a thin layer. Cook the crepe until crisp at the edges, and brown on the bottom. Flip the crêpe with a spatula and cook until golden on the other side. Remove the crêpe from the pan, and keep it warm in a low oven while you repeat the process with the remaining batter.
  5. To serve, spread the crepes with vegan cream cheese (add a little sweetener to the cheese if you like) and spoon over the 5-minute jam, before folding and serving.
