Made with gluten free goodness and filled with creamy Greek yogurt, these healthy crepes will hit the spot every time. A few simple ingredients and a love for chocolate are all you need for this decadent breakfast.
I’ve been looking for a breakfast recipe that would satisfy my sweet tooth, but without the gluten, the grains, or the guilt. I was inspired to create this healthy crepe recipe by stuffing chocolate crepes with a cream and Greek yogurt mixture. And the result was delicious!
The filling is made using my Berries n Cream Parfait recipe, which works perfectly for gluten free crepes. The protein in Greek yogurt helps keep you full through the morning, while the fruit gives it a delectable sweetness without going overboard with the sugar.
These chocolate crepes are made with cocoa, which is packed with antioxidants, polyphenols, and just a bit of caffeine to give you a healthy boost in the morning.

How To Make Gluten Free Crepes
This deceptively easy gluten free crepes recipe only requires a few ingredients. You probably have most of them on hand already.
The crepes themselves only involve bananas, eggs, and cocoa. That’s it! The ingredients are so versatile that you can use them for pancake and muffin recipes as well.
If you’re not a raspberry fan, you can substitute any other berry to make this healthy crepe recipe your own. I think these would be super tasty with blueberries or strawberries.
Healthy Crepe Recipe FAQ’s
Does it matter what kind of yogurt I use?
While you can use any kind of yogurt, I find that plain, unsweetened Greek yogurt is best for this healthy crepes recipe because of its thick consistency and healthier qualities.
Many yogurts are runnier, which may affect how well your gluten free crepes keep their shape. They can also have a lot of added sugars.
How is the taste affected if I don’t use the optional stevia?
Since stevia is pretty potent, your filling simply won’t be sweet if you don’t use it. It doesn’t affect the healthy crepes’ nutritional content though, so it all depends on your preference.
If you want a sweeter chocolate crepe filling but don’t like the taste of stevia, you can use any other sweetener. Regular sugar will work, but you can use xylitol or monkfruit to keep the ‘healthy’ in your healthy crepes.
What other versions of healthy crepes can I make?
There are so many ways to make this gluten free crepes recipe! You can remove the cocoa and add some vanilla for banana split crepes, or flavor the filling with your favorite fruit. The sky’s the limit!
In fact, the ingredients in this healthy crepes recipe are so versatile, you could change things up completely.
With only slight variations, you can make a banana pancake version with cocoa whipped cream, or try some chocolate banana muffins with raspberry yogurt.

Those crepes look so good. I haven’t ever made the chocolate crepes here. I will have to give these a try. My kids would go nuts for them. Definitely a great idea for winter break!
I make eggana pancakes all the time! but OMG these look delicious! I never thought to add cocoa in the mix! I love that they are grain free, because I follow a low carb lifestyle. These fit the bill perfectly and have made my tummy grumble!

Thanks so much for creating such a delicious dessert!
The photos are lovely and while the recipe makes sense, you don’t state how much batter to put in the pan. With (conventional) crepes it’s usually a very small amt. Is it 1/4 cup ? One third ? I don’t want to waste batter trying to figure that out. Thank you~
I never measure I just pour until its a size I would like for a crepe 🙂
The picture is lovely but this is the only positive thing I can say about these “crapes”. I would say it is more an omelette than a crape as the recipe is based on 2 eggs; but I still tried to cook them. I spend an hour trying to figure out what to add to the mix to make it work after burning my pan using only 2 eggs, 1 tbsp cocoa and 1 banana… It was truly waste of my time and money.
So sorry they didn’t work out for you Mia, that’s a shame. I’ve never had issues.
Have a great Sunday.
How many does this serve? Thanks
I made these for one serving 🙂
These were great! There isn’t a measurement for how much to pour in regards to the “batter,” but if you’ve ever made a crepe before it’s pretty much just like a regular crepe. All you need is a wide but thin layer.
This is odd, but I cooked with two pans. I’d cook on one side and drop it to the next pan to cook on the other side. It wouldn’t flip and would get mushy, but this worked perfectly. It was so good that even my 4 year old ate it. Thank you!
