Thanks for the coconut banana crepe recipe!
Thank you Dr. Axe. I am going to try the recipe. Looks easy and looks like it taste good also. I would like to have the ebook mentioned. I am already a member.
Good morning Dr. Axe,
My issue is not related to this site. Please tell me what I should do to get rid of build up of stomach acid. Ever morning I cough and irretate my throat plus has a horrible odor. I really need your help.
Thank you in advance. GOD BLESS YOU ALWAYS! Gracr
Thank you! For the coconut pancakes recipe. I LOVE it! It’s quick and easy and does not take up a lot of kitchen ingredients to use. Very efficient and tasty.
Nice recipe, will try tomorrow!
Can you make these into a cone shape to hold fruit and more.
Do you think pumpkin could be used as a substitute for banana in this recipe?
Could you put the print sign in recipe so that just your recipe can be printed off.
Too many eggs in many of these recipes. can we change these out?
Would you be able to make flour free?
I need to know Dr Axe. Is Coconut good for eating in aiding weight losd
These are delicious. I used a full small banana. They came out great. My boyfriend with Crohns loves these and they are a definite safe food for him. We eat them plain with butter. They have a semi-sweet banana bread-like taste and consistency. They refrigerate and reheat very well. I’m normally very picky about any recipes that use flour substitutions or recipes that are paleo/scd/etc. These are something that I would make and eat regularly even if no one in my house had any diet restrictions, and I wouldn’t change them.
I just tried making these and while they tend to stick to the pan they’re pretty good! Can they be frozen? Can the mix be frozen before cooking?
I have not yet tried freezing the crepes or the batter. Feel free to try it. Let me know how it goes!
Hi Keith, I completely understand why you feel this way. My team and I are actually adding the nutritional information to the recipes now. Be sure to be on the lookout for this in the near future!
I used almond milk and it turned out yummy too!
That sounds great, Kee. Glad you enjoyed!
Do you have a coconut flour based pancake recipe for AIP, no eggs, no seeds uuuugh
Hi Lisa, I do not currently have a recipe like this, but I will work on it for you! Thank you for the suggestion!
For those intolerant to egg, what would you recommend as an alternative?
Hi Luisa, here are the egg substitutions I recommend: one egg = ½ mashed banana, ¼ cup applesauce, 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed meal + 3 tablespoons water; 1 tablespoon chia + 3 tablespoons water (allow both to sit for 10-15 minutes to thicken).
Thanks! Can’t wait to try it out.
I wish your recipes included nutrition facts
Hi Jennifer, I am currently working on adding the nutrition facts to all of my recipes for your convenience!
Hi there! I can’t eat eggs :(
Do you think energ egg replacement would work for this?
Hi Krista, here are the egg replacements I recommend: one egg = ½ mashed banana, ¼ cup applesauce, 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed meal + 3 tablespoon water or 1 tablespoon chia + 3 tablespoon water (allow both to sit for 10-15 minutes to thicken).
You could try.
Is this liquid coconut milk or the canned milk?
Hi Melissa, this is full-fat canned coconut milk.
How can i substitute egg, i do not use the shelf box egg replacement either. Thankyou
Hi Mistral, here are the substitutions for one egg: one egg = 1/2 mashed banana, 1/4 cup applesauce, 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed meal + 3 tablespoons water; 1 tablespoon chia + 3 tablespoons water (allow both to sit for 10-15 minutes to thicken).
Thanks for the recipe. I might add a pinch of sea salt to bring out the flavors (this is especially helpful with sweet things, paradoxically), and a dash of cinnamon and cardamom.
I couldn’t figure out how to flip with spatula but used a plate the size of inside of the pan to turn crepe onto and then slid it back into pan and it worked fine, tasted great and was very filling!
I’m just a little confused. I’m attempting to do the healing foods plan to heal leaky gut. I noticed on the healing diet honey is not allowed but this recipe is listed under gut health. So should I have honey or not?
A little in moderation is typically fine but if you are healing leaky gut, I would try to stay away from sugar.
Can you tell me more about coconut milk? My local store sells cartons of coconut and almond milk. Is this what you mean or is it something that comes in a can?
I typically recommend the coconut milk that comes in a can because there typically aren’t as many added ingredients. You can see the coconut milk I personally use if you click on the “coconut milk” link in the ingredients list.
This recipe is amazing! So good!!!
Since it is the season, I bet pumpkin puree would be a great alternative. I think I feel a new recipe coming on…. ;)
Crepes look easy and would taste amazing. What do you suggest to put in them, or are you eating them like pancakes?
Coconut cream, chocolate, banana puree, fruit of any kind, or plain! It’s totally up to what you’re craving
I see crepes as think pancakes so you make them a little thicker and presto pancakes.
I’m going to make it .
What is the carb count for this recipe. Being a diabetic I need to stay on top of them.
We’re working on adding nutrition facts to each recipe but until then, you can input any recipe you like here and get a complete list of the nutrition facts: http://nutritiondata.self.com/mynd/myrecipes/welcome?returnto=/mynd/myrecipes
Unfortunately, the site you listed does not have coconut flour in their database so it is impossible to get an accurate nutritional picture.
I just cooked some crepes like this you only need two table spoons of of Coconut flour 9carbs and 5 fiber per 2 table spoons(serving) I hope this helps. One bag goes a looonnnggg way I bought two 1 pound each and it only takes two table spoons.
Good day.Thanks for the good medical write ups and advice you give .I am a lover of fruit juice made at home which I really do enjoy not to mention the health benefits I gain but I would like to know more about the foam that gathers on the fresh juice,is it good for the body? If not how do I get rid of it ?
When juicing, your juicer may produce foam in the juice. The amount of the foam/froth depends on the type of juicer you use and what you’re juicing. Masticating juicers produce less foam compared to centrifugal juicers. And fibrous fruits/vegetables produce more foam compared to those with less fiber.
When a juicer or blender spins at high-speed, it captures more air that mixes with the juice, causing the juice to be frothy with foam. A good portion of this foam is just trapped air bubbles. Consuming more air can result in gas and bloating but overall, it’s totally up to you and your personal preference as to whether or not you consume this portion or not.
