Keto Almond Flour Crepes with Berry Compote

A Personal Touch to the Keto Classic

This recipe holds a special place in my heart, as it’s a culmination of my love for French cuisine and my commitment to a ketogenic lifestyle. The inspiration came from a desire to recreate the classic French crepe without the high-carb content that comes with traditional wheat flour. Almond flour emerged as the perfect substitute, offering a low-carb alternative that doesn’t compromise on texture or flavor.

The almond flour is a powerhouse in the keto kitchen, boasting a high content of healthy fats and fiber while keeping the net carbs to a minimum. It’s this magical ingredient that allows us to enjoy these crepes without disrupting our ketosis. The eggs in the recipe contribute to the richness and provide a good amount of protein, ensuring that these crepes are not only delicious but also nutritious.

As for the berry compote, it’s a celebration of natural sweetness. Berries are among the few fruits that are keto-approved, thanks to their lower sugar content and high fiber, which reduces the net carb count. The compote adds a fresh, tangy flavor to the crepes, making them irresistibly delicious. The addition of lemon juice enhances the berries’ flavor, while erythritol sweetens the deal without adding any carbs.

Together, these ingredients create a symphony of flavors that are sure to delight anyone following a ketogenic diet. The crepes and compote are not just a meal but an experience that speaks to the versatility and creativity possible within the constraints of low-carb eating.

Preparing Keto Almond Flour Crepes

The Method: Crafting the Perfect Crepe

The secret to perfect Keto Almond Flour Crepes lies in the batter’s consistency and the technique of cooking. Start by whisking the almond flour and eggs until fully combined, ensuring there are no lumps. The smoothness of the batter is crucial for achieving the delicate texture that crepes are known for. The almond milk should be added gradually to reach the desired consistency, which is thinner than pancake batter but not too runny.

When cooking the crepes, patience is key. Use a non-stick skillet or crepe pan to avoid sticking, and remember that the first crepe is often a test run to get the temperature and technique right. The pan should be hot enough that the batter sizzles slightly when it hits the surface, but not so hot that the crepe burns. Swirl the pan immediately after adding the batter to spread it thinly and evenly. This will ensure that your crepes are uniformly cooked and have that classic, delicate edge.

Flipping the crepe is perhaps the most intimidating step, but with a little practice, it becomes second nature. Wait until the edges lift easily from the pan and the surface looks set before attempting to flip. Use a wide spatula to gently turn the crepe over, and then cook for just a minute or two on the other side. Each crepe should be golden and slightly crisp around the edges, with a soft, pliable center.

Variations to Spice Up Your Crepes

Chocolate Hazelnut Keto Crepes

For a decadent twist, add a tablespoon of cocoa powder to the crepe batter and serve with a sugar-free hazelnut spread. The rich chocolate flavor paired with the nutty spread creates a keto-friendly version of the beloved chocolate crepes.

Savory Spinach and Feta Crepes

Transform your crepes into a savory meal by omitting the erythritol and vanilla extract from the batter. Fill the cooked crepes with sautéed spinach and crumbled feta cheese for a satisfying and nutrient-rich dish.

Lemon Cream Cheese Filled Crepes

Combine softened cream cheese with a touch of erythritol and lemon zest for a tangy filling. Spread this mixture over the crepes and roll them up for a refreshing and creamy treat.

Substitutions for Dietary Needs and Preferences

While this recipe is designed to be keto-friendly, it can be easily adapted to suit various dietary requirements or personal preferences.

For those with nut allergies, coconut flour can be used in place of almond flour. Keep in mind that coconut flour is highly absorbent, so you’ll need to use less of it and potentially add more liquid to achieve the right batter consistency.

If you’re avoiding dairy, opt for coconut oil instead of butter for frying the crepes. Coconut oil has a high smoke point and imparts a subtle, sweet flavor that pairs well with the berry compote.

For a different sweetener, monk fruit sweetener can replace erythritol. It’s a natural, zero-calorie sweetener that won’t spike your blood sugar levels and works well in both the crepes and the compote.

  • Mixing bowl
  • Whisk
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Non-stick skillet or crepe pan
  • Spatula
  • Small saucepan


For the crepes

  • 1 cup almond flour 96g / 3.4oz
  • 3 large eggs
  • ¼ cup unsweetened almond milk 60ml / 2 fl oz
  • 1 tbsp granulated erythritol 12g / 0.4oz

  • 1 tbsp granulated erythritol 12g / 0.4oz
  • ¼ cup water 60ml / 2 fl oz
  • ½ tsp lemon juice


  • Start by preparing the berry compote. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the berries, erythritol, water, and lemon juice. Bring the mixture to a simmer, stirring occasionally, and cook for 10-15 minutes until the berries break down and the compote thickens. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  • For the crepes, in a large mixing bowl, whisk together the almond flour, eggs, almond milk, erythritol, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt until you have a smooth batter.
  • Heat a non-stick skillet or crepe pan over medium heat and lightly grease with butter or coconut oil.
  • Pour a small amount of the crepe batter into the center of the pan, tilting and swirling the pan to spread the batter into a thin, even layer.
  • Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until the edges of the crepe begin to lightly brown. Carefully flip the crepe with a spatula and cook for another 1-2 minutes on the other side.
  • Transfer the cooked crepe to a plate and repeat with the remaining batter, greasing the pan as needed between crepes.
  • Serve the warm crepes with a generous spoonful of the berry compote on top.


For a dairy-free version, use coconut oil instead of butter for frying the crepes.
The consistency of the batter can be adjusted by adding more almond milk for thinner crepes or more almond flour for thicker crepes.
The berry compote can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator for up to one week.
