These crepes were delicious and I couldn’t detect the “cool burn” taste that sometimes I taste with erythritol.
BUT it’s worth noting that I only used a bit more than 1/2 cup of Swerve in this recipe. If your recipe calls for more than 3/4 cup of sugar and you want to try Swerve, I’d recommend replacing half of it with Swerve vs. a 100% substitution if you don’t want to detect that taste.

For the crepes:
1 1/3 cup reduced-fat milk
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup Swerve, Confectioners
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
Dash of salt
For the whipped cream
1 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons Swerve, Confectioners
For the fruit:
4 cups of an assortment of fruit colors such as raspberries, sliced strawberries, chopped mango, clementine sections, banana slices, chopped kiwifruit, sliced green grapes, blueberries, sliced purple grapes
1/4 cup of Swerve, Confectioners for dusting
Fresh mint leaves
In a mixing bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, butter and vanilla extract.
In a separate bowl, whisk together flours, 1/3 cup Swerve, Confectioners, cocoa powder and salt. Add dry ingredients to wet and whisk until just incorporated.
Using a skillet with a 6- or 7-inch diameter, coat with cooking spray and heat over medium heat.
Pour a scant 1/4 cup of batter in middle of pan. Grab handle and swirl around until batter coats entire pan (crepe will be thin.) Cook about 1 minute and then flip. Coat about other minute or until cooked through. Repeat with remaining batter.
For whipped cream, add heavy cream and 2 tablespoons Swerve, Confectioners to a bowl for mixer stand. Whisk on high until stiff peaks form.
To serve, fold one or two crepes into triangles and place on plate. Dust with remaining Swerve Confectioners (about 3/4 teaspoon per crepe.) Serve with assorted fruit, whipped cream and mint leaves.
