Found this recipe while searching around on the internet. Made it for the first time tonight and figured that it would be a hit here. I made some minor changes (noted in the recipe), but tried to make it as close to the original as possible. Here is the recipe (orginally found here: http://healthyindulgences.blogspot.com/2008/07/homemade-low-carb-gluten-free-wraps-you.html )

2 tablespoons flax seed meal
1 tablespoon sesame seed meal (I used an extra tablespoon of flax meal)
2 tablespoons pecan or almond meal
1 tablespoon oat OR buckwheat flour (I used about a 1/2 tablespoon of coconut flour)
1/2 teaspoon protein powder (I used Grow Whey - Natural)
1/2 teaspoon xanthan or guar gum (I broke down and bought this for this recipe)
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon vinegar
1 tablespoon coconut milk OR heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon honey OR blackstrap molasses (I don’t know if this is needed, but used honey)
4 tablespoons warm water
Herbs and spices, to taste (I was in too much of a hurry to add spices)

*Preheat oven to 375 deg. I placed the whole mixture onto a greased section of parchment paper that was on a cookie sheet. I placed a second sheet of parchment paper on top and rolled the dough out to about 1/8 of an inch. Bake for around 8 minutes. Watch it closely as it can start to burn quickly past the 8 minute mark. The original recipe called for splitting the dough and making two small 7 inch tortillas.

These are no joke! Flexibile and taste great. This is really cool. I think that this is a great economical way to use healthy flours, because you don’t need as much. This would also save on calories. You could even top the wrap with pizza toppings, pop back in the oven, and make a lower calorie pizza! Try them and see what you think.

Here is a wrap that I made with the tortilla. Yeah I would have liked to have done something a little more nice, like fajitas, but I wanted to try it quickly. Picture is to prove the flexibility.

Wolf that’s great! Blackstrap molasses is as low sugar/carb as you’re going to get for natural sweetners, and I also think that 1/4 teaspoon might even be too much from what i’ve read. Looks awesome though, will most def have to give a try!
