Keto crêpe recipe｜Ingredients : Okara powder and psyllium husk
The essential ingredients for this recipe is Okara powder and psyllium husk. It is very much recommended to store those items in your kitchen if you start working on low-carb diet or ketogenic.
Okara powder can be perfect alternative for cake flour. Psyllium husk has the ability to make the flour stuck together, and it contains no carbs!
Okara powder has very close texture to flour and yet, it does not contain much net-carbs. Almond powder is often used as an alternative for any flour, but Okara powder works a lot better.
Okara powder is made of soy beans. The ingredient is made in the process of making Tofu. After squeezing juice of boiled soy beans to make Tofu, the left over is called “Okara.” Okara has been used to make salad and so on in Japan.
If you are on Ketogenic diet, the benefit is very clear to substitute flour by Okara powder. The carb that is contained in each ingredient is as follows;
All purpose flour
It is recommended to use “fine” version of Okara powder so that the texture can be very much like all purpose flour.
I just started to use this powder and just fell in love with it. It has perfect texture as an alternative. Though, I do not understand why the zipper does not function to close the bag. I am using a clip to close it.
Psyllium husk gets very slimy if you put it in water. It can be an alternative for potato starch. It can be used to make bread, jelly, Chinese dishes which has slimy texture, etc. It is such a versatile ingredient.
As potato starch is often used in Japanese dishes, having psyllium husk would make cooking a lot easier for many of those Japanese dishes if you are on Ketogenic diet.
Amazingly, this ingredient contains zero carbs. It is basically fiber. Just keep in mind that it is recommended not eating more than 20g of psyllium husk per day.
Coconut oil or Butter (Only if you use a pan to make it)

9 Heat the other side for 1-2 min using low heat.

You can put whipped cream, custard cream, etc. As banana, peach, mango have a lot of sugar, you should better avoid those sweet fruits.
Berries are very much recommended for keto dieters as they contain small amount of carbs.
Oh, and you can use whipped cream as you like as long as it does not contain sugar.
