For Serving

Can I use different flour in this Diabetic Friendly Crepe Recipe?

Yes, you can use King Arthur Keto wheat blend flour. You can also use almond flour, but this will alter the texture. The Carbalose Flour or King Arthur Keto flour maintains the texture of a crepe made with all-purpose flour.

How to make Low Carb Crepes

Mixing the batter

The batter should be lump-free and have the consistency of half and half cream. If it is thick, add a little bit more milk, a tablespoon at a time. The batter should spread out easily in the pan when you cook the crepes. Using a whisk attachment and sifting the Carbalose flour helps get a smooth lump-free batter.

Cooking the Crepes

Do I need a special pan to make crepes?

A crepe pan is a shallow pan that has a flat bottom. It usually has a very short side, making it easier to get your spatula under the crepe to flip. You can use any flat-bottomed 10 to 12-inch pan or griddle. Crepe batter tends to spread out, so be mindful of that if using a griddle or large pan. make sure that the heat is evenly distributed across the pan to allow the crepes to cook evenly. Using a small pan on a large burner or a larger pan on a small burner can cause uneven cooking or hot spots in the pan.

If you make a lot of crepes, you may enjoy an electric crepe pan. You will get the same size every time, for a perfect professional look. many pans, electric and traditional come with a spatula and a batter spreader. Neither of these tools is necessary, but they are certainly nice to have.

How can I tell if the crepes are done cooking?

Crepes cook very fast. You need to be ready to flip and repeat while cooking crepes. These low carb crepes cook in under a minute. Your time may vary slightly, depending on your pan and pan temperature.

You will see slight bubbling and the underside of the crepe will have a golden appearance. The crepes should not be dark brown. You are likely to see bubbling starting on the surface, and this is a sign that they are ready to flip.

Crepes are thin. If your crepe feels rubbery and is cooking unevenly, you likely have added too much batter.

Storage Instructions

Allow your crepes to cool completely before wrapping them for storing.

You can store cooled crepes either flat or rolled. When preparing for storing, place a piece of parchment paper or waxed paper in between the crepes, to prevent them from sticking together.

Store refrigerated for up to 4 days, for the best results. Our Low Carb Crepes can also be frozen for up to 3 months. when defrosting crepes, place individual crepes onto a wire rack and allow them to defrost. If you find that the frozen crepes are very wet when thawed, the likely cause is that the crepes were not fully called before being placed in the freezer.

How to make coloured Diabetic Friendly Crepes

When making the batter, add some colouring gel or paste using a clean toothpick. Dip the toothpick into the colouring and then into the mixed batter. Discard the toothpick and mix the batter. If the colour is not dark enough, add more colouring, using another clean toothpick. Repeat until you get the desired colour. Mix again and Add it sparingly until you get the desired colour. Some colours do not work well, so I recommend that you choose bright colours.

Colouring the crepes is a fun way to match a theme, such as green on St Patrick’s Day, school colours at a school fundraiser, or a favourite colour to celebrate a special occasion. You can even make a few batches and have multiple colours.

I hope that you enjoy this Low carb Diabetic Friendly Crepe recipe. Low Carb crepes are easy to make diabetic friendly. Crepes are so versatile. They can be eaten for breakfast, snacks and desserts.
