Paleo/Primal Crepes

paleo-primal-crepe-recipe
Who knew you could make crepes out of collagen? Hydrolyzed collagen is rich in protein and amino acids, and has diverse uses in both smoothies and recipes. Perfect Hydrolyzed Collagen is derived from 100% pastured cows who feed on clean, pesticide-free grasses in Brazil. Collagen and almond flour substitute for wheat flour in these tasty crepes. It’s a perfect grain-free, Paleo breakfast!

Crepe Ingredients:

Crepe Preparation:

Throw all ingredients in a blender until well mixed.

Heat a small frying pan and melt more butter or coconut oil in the bottom to coat. Pour a small amount of batter into the pan — just enough to cover the bottom, as crepes are supposed to be very thin.

Cook enough to flip and continue cooking on other side. Remove to a plate or oven safe dish and continue this until the entire batch is cooked. You may wish to keep the cooked ones in the oven on low to keep them warm while you cook the rest.

Serve with maple syrup and a sprinkle of cinnamon, or try with one of the following Paleo-friendly fillings.

Apple Filling 

  • 4 cups organic apples, peeled and sliced into bite-sized bits
  • 1 – 2 Tbs pastured butter or coconut oil
  • 1 Tbs coconut sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

Melt a tablespoon of butter or oil in a frying pan. Add all other ingredients and cook until the apples are soft. If it looks to be getting a little dry, add a bit more butter or oil. When done, layer about 1/3 cup into the center of a crepe and roll. These are really tasty for breakfast or dessert!

Berry Filling:

  • 4 cups fresh or frozen berries, my favorite is raspberries
  • 2/3 cup maple syrup

Put all ingredients in a sauce pan and heat until warm. Layer about 1/3 cup in the center of a crepe and roll. Enjoy!
