History of Crepes

Pancakes are most commonly recognized as a breakfast and brunch dish in America and Canada. They’ve been around for centuries, a staple in many cultural diets.

Whether you call them flapjacks, griddle cakes, crepes or pancakes, the world has fallen in love with batters cooked on a greased pan or griddle.

While crepes are most commonly associated with France, you’ll find similar flatbreads produced in Vietnam as Banh Xeo and India as Pudla.

Traditional crepes originated in the northwest region of France called Brittany. Back then, the crepes were more often used as an everyday bread. Around the 12th century buckwheat was introduced to the region, and became the main ingredient for the popular flat bread.

Today, families around the world enjoy a morning meal featuring stacked mango, blueberry, and cherry pancakes. You can find both sweet and savoury crepes all over the world, from spicy Vietnamese crepes, puffy Dutch Babies to Japanese okonomayaki.

Easy Blueberry Mango Crepes with Coconut Flour

We love making pancakes and crepes at home.

We’ve shared our favourite recipes including Chocolate Cherry Pancakes, Sourdough Discard Pancakes & Waffles, Vietnamese Crepes and Vegan Indian Pudla.

Our favourite savoury crepes are gluten free and use rice flour or chickpea flour. After doing a lot of recipe testing, we’ve found the best sweet gluten free crepes are made with coconut flour.

Best Gluten Free Blueberry Mango Coconut Crepes

If you’ve made traditional French crepes before using whole wheat flour the method for this gluten free recipe is very similar. The only major difference is that coconut flour has a different ability to absorb liquid than whole wheat flour.

In our recipe for crepes with coconut flour below you’ll see we suggest adding liquid to the coconut flour and then letting it rest for a few minutes. When returning to inspect the batter add a little more liquid or coconut flour until you have a thin crepe-like consistency. Depending on the humidity or heat in your kitchen you may need to play around with proportions.

If you’re using an electric crepe maker, do not grease the surface. The coconut flour crepe batter will not properly adhere to the surface and you will find your kitchen quickly becomes a sloppy mess!

If it’s your first time making crepes we suggest using a crepe pan or non-stick pan. Beginners will have more success as this easy technique does not require the action of flipping a crepe maker into a dish filled with batter.

Simply pour the coconut flour crepe batter into a greased non-stick pan and rotate using the handle to ensure the batter spreads out across the surface into a large circle.

Using a spatula, gently coax the edge of the crepe off the pan and after 1-2 minutes peer underneath to ensure the bottom has turned a golden brown colour. Flip the coconut flour crepes to cook the other side. After cooking each of the crepes let them rest on a cooling rack. Do not handle them until they reach room temperature.

How to Make Homemade Coconut Flour

Coconut flour is a gluten free flour that is basically dried coconut in a finely powdered form. It is made from the coconut solids that are left over after the meat has been used to produce coconut milk. The solids are ground into a very fine, flour-like powder. Coconut flour is popular in gluten free and low-carb baking, since it is low in carbohydrates and high in fibre.

You can easily buy coconut flour at your local grocery store or bulk food store. Bob’s Red Mill from Portland, Oregon produces a popular product we’ve used in this recipe.

You can also make coconut flour at home. First, you’ll need to source coconut pulp. You can get this from fresh coconuts or dried coconut flakes. We suggest making homemade coconut milk first with the pulp and then use what’s leftover to make coconut flour, so there’s no waste.

  • Preheat oven 120 F degrees.
  • Spread coconut pulp on parchment paper and bake for 45 minutes or until the coconut pulp is dried.
  • Once cooled, blend dried coconut pulp in a blender or food processor, around 2 minutes, until it becomes a fine powder.
  • Store in an airtight container.

My Family Loves Crepes with Coconut Flour

My family loves crispy Crepes with Coconut Flour stuffed with mango cottage cheese filling and topped with blueberry sauce.

This quick and easy gluten-free crepe recipe can be made in under 30 minutes, perfect for celebrating brunch during Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Easter, Christmas holidays or a special birthday.

Many of my family and friends rank this recipe as the best mango crepes or blueberry crepes recipe they’ve ever tasted. The coconut flour that makes up the crepe batter adds a tropical flavour that pairs well with juicy mango and sweet blueberries.

We do not suggest freezing leftover crepes, they will fall apart when you defrost them. Use all of the crepes the day they are prepared if you can. Or, store leftovers in a ziplock bag in the fridge and eat them up within 24 hours.

They also taste great schmeared in peanut butter or jam.

Tips for Blueberry Mango Crepes

This recipe for gluten-free crepes with coconut flour is so quick and easy, even a novice baker or cook should have no problems perfecting them at home.

Baking is a science so be sure to measure all of your ingredients accurately and sift the dry ingredients. We also suggest keeping an eye on the skillet or griddle, there’s nothing more sad than being forced to eat a batch of burnt crepes!

Once you’ve perfected making gluten free crepes with coconut flour at home, feel free to have fun substituting ingredients in the filling and sauce. You could easily make these mango crepes by swapping ingredients, creating a cottage cheese filling with fresh blueberries and a mango sauce for the topping.

You could also replace blueberries in the sauce for other berries like blackberries, strawberries and raspberries. We love mango crepes but if you can’t find fresh mango or aren’t a fan of the flavour you can try substituting for other tropical fruits like papaya, pineapple or kiwi.

The filling is made up of cottage cheese and cream cheese, but you could substitute with creamy mascarpone or ricotta cheese.

The easiest way to prepare each plate for your brunch guests is by laying an individual coconut crepe on the counter. Spoon the mango and cottage cheese filling into the centre of the crepe and spread it from top to bottom. Fold the coconut crepe inwards (see picture below) and top with blueberry sauce and freshly sliced mango.

These blueberry mango crepes were inspired by traditional Jewish blintzes, stuffed with a sweet cottage cheese filling. We prefer to serve them folded inwards but you could also wrap them into traditional blintzes that look like cute packages. There are many ways to fold crepes, try each method out to discover your favourite presentation.

We’re certain your family will love these healthy gluten free crepes with coconut flour. The mango and blueberry pair perfectly with the creamy cottage cheese interior. Bon appétit!
