Easy Homemade Raspberry High Protein Crepes Recipe
What is a Crepe?
A crepe is a type of thin pancake made from wheat flour that’s usually cooked quickly on both sides in butter or oil. However, you can use other types of flours, like almond flour or cassava flour. I like using a plant-based vanilla protein powder for this recipe because it allows the macros to be higher in protein.
Are Crêpes Really French?
The answer is yes, but crepes are also eaten in countries like Belgium and Switzerland.
What Ingredients Are Needed to Make Easy High Protein Crepes?

I made this easy crepe recipe with raspberries and coconut whipped cream, but feel free to experiment and test out various other fillings and toppings. Some optional filling and topping suggestions are strawberries, nut butters, kiwi fruit, and bananas.
Keep Warm, Storage and Freezing Tips:
I love to meal prep a large batch of these for the week and store the rest in the refrigerator. You can freeze these but I suggest you place a piece of parchment paper between each individual crepe. Reheat on the stove or in the microwave for 30 seconds.
