WHAT ARE CREPES MADE OUT OF
The main ingredients needed for crepes are flour, eggs, and milk. Additional ingredients used to make crepes are vanilla for some flavor, a bit of sugar or salt to bring out the flavors of the crepes, and oil or butter to cook the batter in.

There are other variations of making crepes as we did with the protein breakfast crepes in which the aim was to make it a high protein, low carb, and nutritious breakfast without any added sugar or flour. A guilt-free simple crepes recipe that you can enjoy every day!

ARE CREPES GLUTEN-FREE
Most crepes are not. Crepes could be gluten-free if made with gluten-free flour. If making homemade crepes you could simply use your own gluten-free flour. Most restaurants now offer gluten-free options so don’t be afraid to ask!

Our Breakfast protein crepes are gluten-free since they weren’t made with any flour.
