I made these gluten-free crepes this morning and they were utterly scrumptious! They taste no different from regular crepes made with all purpose flour. It was the first time I used rice flour in crepe batter, so I went a bit experimental and had the right amounts after a few trials.

I wasn’t sure at first how much batter I should pour into the pan to make them paper thin since I was afraid the batter wouldn’t hold well in the pan. I understood that rice flour didn’t make any change about the consistency and cooking process. Also, they look just the same as the Crepes I always make!

A tip when making crepes: Pour a ladle of the batter on the same point in the pan and roll the pan from side to side to make a round shape crepe. And you should act fast at this step. You shouldn’t add any more batter on it. Do it just at a time!

You can fill these thin gluten-free crepes with your favorite filling and easily roll them up. You can either enjoy it slicing bite size with a knife or just use your hands. My choice is almost always savory. I love to fill my crepes with a feta and parsley mixture, but I wanted to make a change this time and filled them with nutella. Nutella stuffed paper thin gluten-free crepes! Can you think of a better breakfast on a day when you have enough time to linger at the table eating a little of this and that, drinking your tea and reading your paper?

Nutella stuffed gluten-free crepes not only make an amazing breakfast, but they also make a delectable dessert. Sift a little powdered sugar to make them even more appealing. So you can easily make these to satisfy your sweet tooth when you don’t have time to prepare a chocolate cake.

    Love it. the kids always want these….we call them pancake rollups…..when they visit. Never thought to use rice flour. Is there a particular brand that you used? Thanks for the idea.

    These crepes look great. Reminds me of my grandma – she filled them with strawberry jam or peach preserves. I like cinnamon and sugar too.

    I love the sound of your savory option – feta and parsley. Any other savory suggestions?

    Spinach, gruyere and shaved ham. Squeeze of fresh lemon and sprinkle of Demerara. Fresh berries and lightly whipped cream. Sharp cheddar and roasted peppers. Endless and delightful possibilities.
    And now I’m hungry. :)

    Does anyone have a copy cat recipe for a sweet cream cheese filing for crepes commonly found at a pancake restaurant?

    I made your delicious crepes tonight and they were wonderful!! I used cream cheese, mixed with a little sugar, and fresh sliced strawberries rolled up on the inside. I drizzled chocolate syrup and powdered sugar on the top as garnish. Thank you for this yummy recipe! Can’t wait to make it for my grandchildren!

    Thank you for this lovely simple recipe! These crepes taste amazing. I had problems flipping them initially, the rice flour makes them a bit more fragile. I added 1/4 teaspoon Guar gum and 1 tablespoon coconut oil into mixture in the next batch and it fixed the problem.

    I made these and subbed almond milk for the regular milk. The batter ended up a little too thick, so in the future I would probably do 1 3/4 cups of almond milk and a 1/4 cup of water to thin it out. But these turned out amazing! Thanks for the recipe.
