Only 7 grams net carbs per large 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.

    This sounds great. But I just have to ask: If a person eats all four of those things will they get a case of the Tijuana Two Step??

      I cannot say for sure. But maybe that wouldn’t be so bad? 🙂

        What oil do you use? I tried coconut oil and the dough just crumbled when I tried to cook it. Would love to know so I can make it like the pic! Thanks!

        Hi Nami. I used grapeseed oil. You could also use olive oil. I love frying with coconut oil, however I find it really problematic to bake with. As soon as melted coconut oil is added to ingredients, it seems to cool off and go hard again. Then it makes white lumps in my baked goods. I’ll bet that is why your dough crumbled… the dough cooled off and made the coconut oil hard and wasn’t able to to keep the dough sticking together. I would try again using different oil.

    Can’t understand why the carb content is so high…that is 16.8g of carbs per wrap right?

      Hi! The coconut flour is very high in fibre. Each wrap has almost 10 grams of fibre. So, you only really digest less than 7 grams of carb. Hope that helps.
