I love crepes for breakfast on a Sunday morning. They’re a delicious treat and a healthy way to start the day.

This recipe makes a big batch of at least 24 crepes, so unless you’re feeding a large crowd you can freeze some for another day. We usually set out a variety of fillings, including blueberries, strawberries, bananas, and sometimes chocolate sauce. I think these berry banana crepes are delicious with just the fruit filling, but my family likes to douse them with maple syrup.

Ingredients

Crepe Ingredients

  • 1 1/3 cups gluten-free flour or white whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 6 eggs
  • 3 cups non-dairy milk or cow’s milk
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter or coconut oil

Crepe Filling for 12 Crepes

  • 2 cups chopped strawberries
  • 2 cups blueberries
  • 2 cups sliced bananas
  • Chocolate Sauce optional

Instructions

  • To make the crepes, mix together the batter the night before you plan to make them. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the first three ingredients. Slowly add the milk and ghee until combined.
  • Refrigerate the batter overnight.
  • In the morning, stir the batter and heat a bit of ghee or oil in your crepe pan over medium heat. Pour enough batter into the pan to make a thin crepe, swirling the pan around to cover evenly. When the bottom is beginning to brown (after about 2 minutes), carefully flip the crepe and cook the other side for about 10 seconds. If it’s difficult to flip, you may need to cook it a little longer. Once both sides are lightly browned, carefully remove the crepe from the pan and continue with the rest of the batter.
  • To assemble, place the chopped fruit and chocolate sauce in the middle of the table.
  • Give everyone one or two crepes at a time and select different filling combinations.
  • Enjoy plain, with maple syrup, or with chocolate sauce.

Berry Banana Crepes Price Breakdown

This recipe costs $7.94 to make, including the chocolate sauce. I remember paying about that much for one lovely crepe at a crepe stand in Montreal last summer.  My batch generates 12 crepes filled with fruit and chocolate, plus another 12 crepes to put in the freezer and save for a rainy day.  These are a real bargain and a great way to start your day!

  1. Question about using coconut oil. Seeing as coconut oil solidifies when it gets cold, would you end up with chunks/lumps of it in the batter? If so I would think it wouldn’t make that much diffrence as it would melt back down upin cooking.

    1. Jocelyn, even if the coconut oil solidifies when you mix it with cold ingredients, it melts back down during the cooking process. You can avoid the issue altogether by bringing cold ingredients to room temperature before mixing.

  2. Love the recipe and the ideas for fillings! Crepes are one of those always-delicious treats perfect anytime of day. We’ll be sure to give your recipe a go! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  3. Your crepes looks delicious. This is a recipe I want to make for my family! Thanks for sharing! :0)

  4. Ghee is so delicious in everything!!! I haven’t made it in a while (laziness) but you motivated me to make another batch…and some Indian food! 😀

      1. I usually make chicken tikka, the recipe is on my earlier WIAW post, but I also make biriyani (rice dish) and naan.

  5. Looks like a beautiful breakfast! Ever since we visited Boston many years ago, we have had blueberry pancakes with maple syrup for breakfast at least once a week. Now I’ll add in crepes with fruit. Thank you 🙂

  6. How do you think it would turn out if I used an equal amount of regular flour and whole wheat flour? Thank you so much!

    1. I’m sure that would taste great! I would suggest using all white whole wheat flour, which is a whole grain and isn’t as processed as regular white flour.
