My family, especially my husband, loves tacos. We eat them at least once a week. Going gluten free means no tortilla. I found this recipe in the Wheat belly book by Dr. Davis, called flax wraps. I make one for myself every time we have tacos or I want a wrap style sandwich. I love these because I was so tired of eating a taco salad…meat, guacamole, salsa, and lettuce. It gets pretty boring! I was also not depriving myself, I was eating the same meal my family was eating, plus it was very filling and satisfying. Bonus – no blood spiking flours in this tortilla (i.e. rice flour or corn flour etc.)
Here is the recipe:
3 tbsp flax meal
¼ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp onion powder
¼ tsp paprika (I usually omit this)
Pinch of salt (I usually omit this too!)
1 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
1 tbsp water (more for a thinner tortilla)
Grease a glass dish. I recommend a pie dish, it’s perfect for this! I also use spectrum coconut oil spray, this stuff is amazing, saves time on greasing, plus its not messy.
Add all dry ingredients in small bowl and mix. Add all wet ingredients in a separate bowl and mix. Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredient and mix. Pour into pie dish and spread. I usually just gently shake/ turn pan until the bottom is covered. Then cook in the microwave for 2 to 3 minutes, I do 2.5 minutes. Take it out and lift tortilla out with a rubber spatula. Top with what you please!
