Step-by-step photos of how to make vegan crepes
  • Mix all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl (photo 1). Add 1 and 1/2 cups of plant milk (375 ml) and if the batter is too thick, add more plant milk until you get a perfect consistency.
  • Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and lightly coat with some extra oil if needed (photo 2). Pour 3 tablespoons of the batter (photo 3), twirling it around to cover the whole bottom of the skillet (photo 4).
  • Cook for 1 to 2 minutes until the batter gets darker (photo 5). Loosen the edges with a butter knife and flip the crepe (photo 6).
  • Cook the other side of the crepe for 1 more minute until brown (photo 7). Repeat with the remaining batter (photo 8).
  • Serve your vegan crepes with your favorite filling or toppings.

Vegan crepes ingredients and tips

  • All-purpose flour: you can also use whole wheat flour or pretty much any type of flour. Feel free to use gluten-free flour if you want to make vegan gluten-free crepes. If you use a different kind of flour, you may need to adjust the amount of it.
  • Brown sugar: feel free to customize your vegan crepe recipe with granulated sugar or any other type of sugar instead.
  • Baking powder.
  • Soy milk: any type of unsweetened plant milk will work with this vegan crepe recipe, such as cashew milkalmond milkrice milkoat milkcoconut milk, or even hemp milk, but soy milk is my favorite one for this recipe.
  • Extra virgin olive oil: I’m Spanish, so I use extra virgin olive oil to cook most of my dishes, including my vegan crepes. However, any type of oil will work. I always use extra virgin oils when possible because they’re healthier. If you don’t eat oil, feel free to use vegan butter.
  • Vanilla extract: to make these vegan crepes I used homemade vanilla extract because it’s more affordable and extremely easy to make, but the store-bought one is also a good choice.
  • Feel free to serve your vegan crepes with sweet or savory toppings or fillings. As for the sweet ones, you could use some of these ingredients: homemade Nutella, blueberry compote, berry compote, applesauce, vegan whipped cream, or sprinkle some powdered sugar over them.
  • As for the savory ones, there are plenty of different options, but these are some of my favorites: chopped vegan chicken, vegan sausage, tempeh bacon, or seitan; some chipotle sofritas or tofu scramble; or even spread some cashew cheese, vegan cream cheese, vegan ricotta as part of the filling.

Are crepes vegan?

Regular crepes aren’t usually vegan, because they are made with cow’s milk and butter. However, making vegan crepes is extremely easy and the results are as good as the original recipe, but healthier. So I really suggest you give this vegan crepe recipe a try!
