Paleo Pineapple Crepes

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a great weekend. I’m enjoying a very rare quiet moment, which is blissful. My daughter is actually napping! She usually just sings & talks in her crib and wants out after a half an hour. My son is quietly playing in the playroom! A rare moment indeed my friends!

So when my husband and I took a vacation to Fiji, we had some amazing food there! For breakfast I had pineapple Crepes probably three days in a row. They were not Paleo, but super delicious. I’ve been wanting to create some Paleo pineapple Crepes forever and finally did this weekend. So just a random question, does fresh pineapple hurt your tongue? If I have too much of it, which I pretty much always do, my tongue hurts a bit and goes numb. My husband thinks I’m weird!

You can also serve them up open face if you like. I hope you enjoy them!

Paleo Pineapple Crepes
Enjoy this delicious breakfast on the weekend for a special treat!
: Breakfast
Serves: 4
  • For the Crepes:
  • 2 Tbs arrowroot flour
  • 2 Tbs coconut flour
  • ¼ cup almond or coconut milk
  • ¼ cup plus 1 Tbs pineapple juice (from the can of pineapples)
  • 2 eggs
  • For the filling/topping:
  • 1 can of pineapple tidbits
  • ¼ cup unsweetened coconut flakes (optional)
  • Macadamia nuts (optional)
  • For the sauce:
  • 1 Tbs coconut butter melted
  • 2 Tbs pineapple juice (from the can)
  • For the skillet:
  • Coconut oil
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. I use a large pancake griddle and turn that to medium high and melt some coconut oil on it.
  3. Mix the Crepes ingredients in a bowl very well. The mix will be runny and thin.
  4. Spoon the ingredients onto the griddle. I make mine a little bigger than my palm. If you make them bigger they will be a little harder to flip and may need extra cooking time.
  5. Cook for 4-7 minutes, then flip and cook another 4-7 minutes. When you try to flip them, they should stay together. If they are breaking in half, you need to cook them longer.
  6. As those are cooking, place the coconut on a cookie sheet and bake 2-3 minutes or until toasted. I would check it often so you don't burn it.
  7. To make the sauce melt the coconut butter and mix well with the pineapple juice.
  8. Fill the crepe with pineapple and top with coconut, nuts, and coconut pineapple sauce.
  9. You can also stack them up if you prefer, instead of rolling them. Enjoy!

    These look delicious and I can’t wait to try them.

    Just a thought: if your tongue hurts and feels numb after ingesting pineapple, you could have an allergy. Might be worth mentioning to your doctor.

    Great recipe! I love tropical fruit, and I can’t wait to find a pineapple with some greenery so I can plant it :) Once I’ve got it, I’ll give this a go! The problem with the tongue might be because pineapples are quite high in oxalates (the stuff that makes rhubarb leaves unsafe to eat) and uncooked, it can be annoying like that. Try eating a raw beetroot (or lots) and if you get the same reaction, it’s because of oxalates. Just cook the pineapple, or don’t have too much! :)

      Thank you and thanks for explaining that and all of the wonderful tips! So I never knew that you could grow your own pineapple! I seem to have a brown thumb except for cherry tomatoes! If you do grow your own pineapple and it works I would love to know.
