Gluten-Free Crepes With Blackberry Sauce (With Paleo Option)


Here in the south, we’re right in the thick of blackberry season.

You know, that time of year when getting chiggers is totally worth it because wild blackberries are like a tiny taste of heaven, whereas cultivated, thornless berries don’t even hold a candle.

I’m completely serious, and if you’ve never been will blackberry picking, make it your challenge this year to do it! It will change your life, and it’s a cheap family activity!

Just be sure to duct tape your pant legs to your shoes. Not kidding.

But with all that said, I have yet to see wild blackberries growing here in central Texas, and I don’t see myself making the trip up to Tennessee to visit family any time in the next few weeks, so cultivated, thornless blackberries it is for us right now.

Because I’ll take thornless blackberries over no blackberries any day.

Since I can only make gluten-free blackberry crumble so many times in one season, this week, I’m moving toward breakfast with my blackberries.

Well, okay – breakfast for dinner.

Breakfast for Dinner?

When I was little, my mom used to make crepes and roll them up with a fruit sauce and whipped cream.

That’s how I grew up eating them, and that’s how I love them still. Just thinking about it makes my mouth water!

Making a fruit sauce is super easy and can easily be made paleo, though if you’re watching your sugar intake, you may want to stick to just fruit.

So below, I’ve included the gluten-free recipe, and then underneath, the paleo recipe because making the paleo crepe is quite a bit different than the gluten-free crepe.

Both are pretty darn tasty, though!
