Ingredients and substitutes
- All purpose flour: Use your favorite brand. I haven’t tried this recipe with gluten-free flour.
- Protein Powder: I’m using plant-based Four Sigmatic, which has a great texture to add to baked goods like these protein crepes. It’s not gritty, grainy, or sandy. It’s a smooth protein blend without gums or fillers! I swapped some of the flour in the crepe recipe for the protein powder.
- Water: You can use tap water, but sparkling water will give these crepes a light and fluffy texture.
- Cornstarch: To help to create a thick batter.
- Sugar: Use granulated sugar for sweetness, but you can also use maple syrup.
- Milk: I use almond milk to keep these crepes vegan, but you can use dairy or another plant based milk if you prefer.
- Coconut oil: Coconut oil contains healthy fatty acids and the fat needed to make the crepes moist and airy.
- To serve: Fresh strawberries and vanilla coconut yogurt.
How to make protein crepes
- Combine the Four Sigmatic protein powder and water and whisk until the powder dissolves. In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients.
- Add the protein powder mix to the dry ingredients in addition to the rest of the water and coconut oil. Whisk until you have a smooth batter. But some lumps are ok.
- Pour some of the batter into a hot pan with coconut oil and spread out the batter immediately.
- Cook until the batter sets in the middle and some bubbles start to form.
- Flip over and cook the other side.
- Remove from the pan and cook the other crepes, making sure to keep the stack warm while cooking.
- Then you can serve them with strawberries and yogurt, or any fillings/toppings.
Tips for making protein crepes
- Dissolve the Four Sigmatic protein powder with water alone first. The mixture of the protein powder with warmed coconut oil could create a cakey texture. It’s always best to dissolve protein powder in room temperature liquid first before adding to the crepe batter.
- Use sparkling water instead of water. This is a tip I love using when cooking pancakes and it works really well for these vegan crepes. The bubbles in the sparkling water give them a soft, light texture. Just be sure to keep the sparkling water closed until right before using.
- All of your ingredients should be at room temperature. If your ingredients are cold, it can cause the coconut oil to solidify. If this happens, just keep whisking the batter.
- Don’t have your pan too hot. If you have the skillet on too high of heat, the water will evaporate quickly and the batter will burn. I like using medium heat for the crepes.
Frequently asked questions
You only need a small amount of batter for each crepe, they are supposed to be thin, not thick like American pancakes. Add just enough to coat the surface of your pan, it should almost be see through. I like 1/3 cup measurements for mine.
I prefer to enjoy crepes as soon as I cook them, but you can make the batter the night before and let it sit in the fridge. Leftover crepes can be stored in a ziplock bag, with each one separated by parchment or wax paper. They will keep like this for up to 5 days in the fridge. They can then be reheated in the microwave for 15 second to serve.
I love the strawberries and cream combination, but you can easily add any of your favorite toppings to these protein crepes. Use fresh berries, sliced bananas or apple, or go full out with some Nutella or even ice cream!

Strawberry Protein Crepes
- ¼ cup protein powder

- In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cornstarch and sugar. Add the protein powder mixture, remaining sparkling water, almond milk and coconut oil on top. Whisk well until smooth and well combined.
- Heat coconut oil over medium heat in a medium sized, non-stick pan. Pour about 1/3 cup of the batter to the pan. Immediately lift the pan and rotate it carefully to move the batter into a thin circle.
