We hear it all the time: breakfast is the most boring meal of the day on the ketogenic diet.
And hey, we sort of get where you're coming from: eggs can get boring even though there are a million ways to make them. And even adding bacon isn’t enough to get you out of a breakfast rut.
That's why we created this recipe for you—and we're so excited for you to try these delicious cream cheese keto crepes for breakfast.
When most people think of crepes, they think of light, egg-based treats covered with powdered sugar.
Sounds yummy no doubt, but traditional crepes are definitely not keto-approved.
This keto crepes recipe uses almond flour and KetoLogic Erythritol to substantially reduce carbs—all without sacrificing taste or the fluffy texture you expect from crepes.
Forget your scramble for a day and change it up with these deliciously fat-fueled and protein-packed crepes. We know you're going to love them!
- Cream cheese
- Almond flour
- KetoLogic Erythritol
- Almond milk
Tips for Making Low-Carb Crepes
- Take the cream cheese out of the fridge an hour before cooking to make sure it is softened.
- Use a blender to ensure the batter is properly mixed. Crepe batter needs to be very smooth with no lumps.
- Let the batter rest for at least 5 minutes before cooking to let the froth settle and for the batter to thicken.
- Use a high quality non-stick skillet to make flipping easier. Coat it with as little oil as possible, about 1 teaspoon. You can brush the oil onto the pan if you have a brush.
- Spread the batter as soon as you add it. Pour in 3 tablespoons and immediately pick up the pan and use a swirling motion until the batter reaches the edges.
- Cook the first side completely before flipping. If you try to flip too soon, the batter will still be stuck and your crepe may get ruined. A good indication is to shake the pan and see if it slides around. Keep a close eye on it because it only takes a couple minutes.
- Use a spatula to gently loosen all the edges then flip in a single motion. Feel free to use your fingers to help, just be careful not to burn yourself. This may take some practice!
How this Recipe Compares to Traditional Crepe Recipes
In short, the difference is night and day.
Traditional crepe recipes call for a whole bunch of non-keto ingredients, like white sugar and all-purpose flour .
Those ingredients may make the crepes light and fluffy, but they also jack up the carb count.
One crepe usually has between 10 and 20 grams of carbs in it—that's 20% to 40% of your daily carb intake on keto.
Compare that to these crepes, which are made with high-fat, low-carb, and protein-packed ingredients like eggs, almond flour, and cream cheese, and it's not even close.
Not only is the carb count lower. The nutritional value is higher.
Almond flour is loaded with protein and fiber, two beneficial nutrients that can help promote weight loss , plus a bunch of different vitamins and minerals.
And the best part is, you're not left craving something that offers the sweetness of a traditional crepe. Because our recipe uses KetoLogic Erythritol, you'll still get that same delicious and light sweet flavor.
Top Health Benefits of this RecipeThese cream cheese crepes:
- Are loaded with protein: Eggs and almond flour both contain protein, which helps rebuild muscles after exercise and keeps you full longer. These may be sweet crepes, but you'll feel plenty satisfied after you eat them.
- Contain fiber: Instead of getting the unnecessary carbs you normally get from using all-purpose flour, almond flour offers the benefit of some morning fiber. Unfortunately, the majority of Americans are fiber-deficient. This is a shame because it's a nutrient that offers tons of benefits. From improved gut health to improved chances of weight loss, it's always good to be eating more fiber on keto .
- Offer the powerful nutritional benefits of eggs: Keto or not, eggs are simply one of the healthiest foods you can put in your body. In addition to being loaded with protein, they are also full of bioactive compounds that help ward off diseases, plus contain more than a dozen essential vitamins and minerals .
