Gluten Free Vegan Crepes

These 4 ingredient crepes are absolutely delicious. Naturally gluten and wheat free due to using buckwheat flour (yes buckwheat doesn’t contain gluten or wheat). They are also vegan and refined sugar free!

They are so simple to make and work perfectly for a weekend breakfast.

Portion: 4 medium sized crepes

Prep: 3-5 mins

Cooking: 10 mins


Ingredients for the crepes:

  • 125g buckwheat flour
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 340ml unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp of ground flaxseed

Optional ingredients to top:

  • Frozen blueberries
  • Coconut yoghurt (I use Coconut Collab)
  • Maple syrup
  • Lemon juice


  1. Add all the crepe ingredients above into a mixing bowl and whisk until smooth (leave to thicken for a couple mins)
  2. Heat a non stick pancake pan on med/high with a small amount of coconut oil
  3. Pour the batter into the pan trying to get a thin even layer by tilting the pan 
  4. Cook for a couple minutes each side until lightly browned (use a spatula to turn making sure to be careful as they are fragile)
  5. Melt the frozen blueberries and place into a bowl, add the coconut yoghurt and stir
  6. Plate up the crepes, top with the yoghurt and a light drizzle of maple syrup

Tip: These can take a couple practices to get right, but they are AMAZING once you get it right!

Tip: If you don’t have yoghurt then try topping with a squeeze of lemon juice and a drizzle of maple syrup.

  1. This recipe failed miserably for me. They stuck to every pan I tried to cook them in, even my nonstick crepe pan and ceramic nonstick pan. I did sub rice milk since we have nut allergies in our family, but otherwise followed the recipe as written. I think it may be just too much maple syrup causing them to stick. They are very sweet.

    1. Hey Rose,

      Sorry they didn’t work for you! I have made them so many times along with many other people and not had that happen before! Sometimes you need to get a spatula under them to help as they wont just flip like normal pancakes etc

      Did you try using the coconut oil to help this?


  2. I’ve just made these for the first time and they worked like a treat! I thought I’d have to miss out on pancake day this year because I wasn’t prepared and looking at a lot of recipes didn’t have many of their ingredients in. These are so simple to make and had everything to hand! They look and taste like the “normal” ones I’ve eaten for years before. Thank you for sharing, very happy I can eat pancakes on pancake day now!!

    1. Aww that is awesome Hayley!!! I am so pleased to be able to help you and bring back the enjoyment for you on pancake day!

      Thanks so much for the feedback 🙂
