Vegan Gluten-Free French Crepes

This recipe took my Mom a LONG time to develop. Yes, this recipe is my Mom’s 🙂

It took her no less than a dozen of attemps to end up with perfectly soft, light and delicious gluten-free crepes.

My Dad and I did play a very important role in the development of this recipe – we had to taste the crepes and give my Mom our feedback, which of course we were okay with.

So, the recipe went through several phases and the crepes ended up different each time:

  • some were soft but oily
  • others weren’t oily but were very crispy
  • some were chewy and elastic
  • others would stick to the pan
  • some refused to cook and just burnt
  • others… okay, I think you get it – it was a long process.

Healthy, Oil-Free and Delicious Crepes

So, you guessed it, this recipe is the result of numerous more or less failed attempts at making vegan gluten-free crepes. Each of these attempts really allowed us to pinpoint the aspects that we wanted to improve to end up with delicious and very soft crepes.

Okay, is your mouth watering already? Mine is, so let’s make these crepes!

Total Time: 2 hours 3 minutes

Delicious Vegan Gluten-Free French Crepes that are easy to make, require only a few ingredients and are very soft. Enjoy with vegan chocolate spread!


  • 310 g gluten-free oat flour
  • 90 g potato starch
  • 500 ml oat milk
  • 250 ml water
  • 400 ml cider or sparkling water
  • 1-2 tbsp coconut oil, melted (optional)


  1. To a large mixing bowl, add all the ingredients and combine with a whisk or a spatula.
  2. Let the batter sit for at least 1 hour (best 2-3 hours). This will allow you to obtain very soft crêpes.
  3. Heat up a non-stick pan with a tiny drizzle of olive or coconut oil and pour about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of the batter. Cook until the edges are dry and you can flip the crêpe (takes roughly 1 minute). Flip and cook on the opposite side. Repeat the process with the remaining batter.
  4. Stack the crêpes on a plate covered with a clean kitchen towel while you cook the rest. This will allow them to stay very soft.
  5. Enjoy hot or cold, by themselves or with vegan chocolate spread or nut butter. Enjoy!

    Why cider? Apple cider? Store bought? Is apple juice good enough? Did you try it with another liquid? Does it taste like apple?

    • July 30, 2018 / 3:25 pm

      HI Cecily,
      Yes, I always use a combination of plant-based milk and store-bought apple cider for this recipe. The crêpes don’t taste like apple at all but the cider does give them a really nice and subtle taste. It also makes them very soft 🙂
      I haven’t tried making these crepes with another liquid but I guess you could use water/sparkling water or more plant-based milk instead.
      Let me know if you do try it without the apple cider so that I can mention it in the recipe notes to help other readers 🙂

    It’s a lot of liquid? Am I reading this right? Will it thicken after a couple hours?

    • January 23, 2020 / 12:54 pm

      Hi Natascha,
      Yes, the recipe is correct. The batter will thicken a little bit but it is supposed to be liquid 🙂

    I’d like to serve for my kids breakfast. She’s allergic to egg and wheat. Can I leave the batter overnight instead of 3 hours as stated in your recipe?

      Hi Leena,
      Yes, you can 🙂
      Happy baking!
