We are control freaks even if we don’t like to admit it. Or rather our brain is. We hate uncertainty and chaos because historically these conditions lowered the survival rate, not just the individual but species as a whole.

Why do we need control?

Those, who planned ahead and organized themselves from groups of people into civilizations, survived much longer while those, who lived like there were no tomorrow, perished quickly.

Unfortunately, the best available science of the time wasn’t much help providing answers for a lot of uncertainties the people were facing. To create a framework for their life, people had to create gods to watch over them and make up rituals in hope of please the gods so they favor them.

Using such a weak evidenced based system worked for a while, but once people developed more advanced scientific principles, like ancient Greeks, the influence of gods eventually waned from the everyday life.

What’s with uncontrollable?

A couple of thousands years later, armed with the whole knowledge of humanity at our fingertips, our core still hasn’t changed much.

If we don’t know enough about the world around us, we make up things, so our brain won’t get a panic attack because of living on a whizzing ball of dirt in the infinite blackness.

This is why believe in hanging a hot cross bun in the kitchen will bring a year of good baking or we can get rich by holding a golden coin in our left hand while flipping a crepe by tossing it into the air with our right one.

Can we control crepes?

Judging by its name, we may think that as many other tasty things, crepes were also invented by the French. Although, it could be possible, there is no historic evidence on that such a blatantly simple thing was invented by one nation only.

In fact, there is at least three names for crepes. First of all, crepes are pancakes, even though crepes are thin as tortillas. Secondly, crepes are called something totally different on the Eastern part of the block, derived from the Hungarian word “palacsinta” which comes from the Latin “placenta” (small flat cake).

We probably never find out who first thought of mix a bit of flour into too much water then fry it, but luckily, we can still enjoy it whatever name it has.

What’s in crepes?

The most basic crepe recipe consists only flour, water and oil but many like to enrich the batter with eggs and milk which produces a somewhat thicker, more complex end product.

Unfortunately, flour has gluten and carbs that makes it an unsuitable ingredient on gluten free or low carb diets.

Although, crepes don’t require any leavening that would make us sorely miss the gluten structure found in flour, they still rely on gluten’s cohesive forces to hold the whole disc together. Or at least, they do in the most basic form of crepes that doesn’t have any eggs.

What’s in keto crepes?

If we are into a bit more exciting crepe mix and we would like to throw one or two eggs into our batter then substituting flour with nut flour, like almond or coconut, will cause no significant hurdles in our preparation process.

Making a keto crepe is just as easy as swapping the flour with low carb alternatives and let the rest flow on its own as usual. Except, maybe we forsake the one handed flipping, due to the stickiness of the low carb batter and try our luck somewhere else.
