Default Low Carb Wraps

These are AWESOME!!!

Now That's a (Low Carb) Wrap!


INGREDIENTS

1/2 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup oil
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp psyllium husk powder
1 cup hot water

DIRECTIONS

Combine ingredients in a bowl. Stir well until you have a nice dough.
Form into 4 balls. Flatten with rolling pin between 2 sheets of parchment. You can roll this dough out quite thin. I made my wraps about 9 inches in diameter.
Cook on an ungreased, non-stick skillet on medium-low heat for a minute or two. Until it starts to bubble. Flip over for another minute or two.
Store in paper bag.

Can you freeze these? Also where do you find psyllium husk powder? Is it the same stuff that is in the fiber pills that I have taken?

I haven't tried freezing. And yes. Same stuff. But you can buy it as a loose powder.

Do you think this would work with flax in place of the psyllium? I know psyllium us a thickening agent, but flax would add the bulk if that is the psyllium purpose

I had the same thought about substituting flax meal.

I just tried a variation on this recipe. It's very good. I have to make some tweaks, though.

- The dough was impossible to handle if I rolled it out as thin as you'd expect a real tortilla. It stuck to the parchment and it ripped when I tried to flip it. I might try oiling the paper next time, as well as making sure my pan is really hot and well-oiled.
- I might try just leaving them on the paper and baking them. This would be easiest with the half-recipe Fitartist posted. I'd just use a couple of cookie sheets.
- I only had about 3/4 cup of coconut flour left, so I sort of eye-balled down the ingredients. Next time, I'll measure more carefully. That could have made a difference.
- They had a bit of a funky flavour, but I'm 99% sure that's from my pan. It sort of tasted like bad bacon grease.

Overall, they were a bit of a fuss to make, but worth it. I haven't had anything resembling a tortilla in ages. I'll definitely be making these regularly. I made quesadillas out of them last night. Fantastic.

I would not sub flax. I'm pretty sure the psyllium is what gives it its bendy texture. I tried another wrap recipe a long time ago with flax and it was kind of a bomb. Not only did it not taste right (you don't really want 'nutty' in a tortilla) but they fell apart. I had to eat whatever I made with a knife and fork.

I will also try this pita version. It's basically the same, except less psyllium and apparently, if you skip the oil, it holds together better.
