Is crepes with rice flour and coconut oil ok?

Hi all. I am new to Paleo way of doing things and have just started about 2 weeks ago. Not necessarily low-carb though, just no grains (except rice) and no processed stuff. I eat dairy and potatoes, but very occasionally.

So far, apart from a short adaptation period, I feel really great! Before, I was really binging almost daily on bread, Nutella, honey, you name it (ouch). I was never overweight but I always felt tired. Now I've found my real energy :)

However, and especially for a weekend breakfast, I am looking for something more like... well, bread! :D So I came up with this crepes (pancakes?). In my country we call it 'kiygana' though. I've switched wheat flour with rice flour and used coconut oil with double-yolk eggs. It tasted even better than the original thing.

Now I'm wondering if it is ok to eat these crepes like only on weekends. Are there any side-effects of rice flour, or specific anti-nutrients I should be aware of? Thanks!

Thanks for the suggestion. Although buckwheat crepes recipe seems to have also the rice flour in it, the mixture could be a better solution. Definitely looks tasty!

Hmm so they are also good for cookie making, thanks. And yes, I don't plant to consume them more than once a week.

Thanks for the suggestions. I only went for rice flour because it was already available from the market just next to where I live. I will try to find some nut flour and those recipes look great, thanks!

Tbh, I would opt for a nut flour (almond & coconut flour are pretty popular) instead of rice or other gluten-free grain flour. This person made a recipe using just arrowroot powder for her crepes:

I think they are fine occasionally but shouldn't be a dietary staple. I use rice flour to make cookies when I get a bad craving!
