A few months ago I saw an ad for a “free” book of keto “carb” recipes. I’m normally enticed to get more keto recipes as they are generally higher in calories than what my body can handle. But it included recipes for noodles, ravioli, buns, wraps, and even croissants.
It was the croissants that got me. I caved and spent the $6.95, supposedly for shipping and handling. I denied all other offers they tried to push on me when I did so. It granted me immediate access to the recipes in pdf format. I looked through them and was looking forward to the small book of recipes arriving. It took several weeks before it did so.
Tiffany has not been able to eat a lot of almond flour and definitely not flax or chia, which currently cause her stomach distress. The first thing we made was some naan. It looked nothing like the pictures in the cookbook but my daughter liked it well enough.
I was intrigued by the wraps. They looked so white and so much like regular white flour tortillas. These used pork rinds ground to a powder. I thought this might lend a nice flavor to the wraps. So I tried them.
I ask you, does that look anything like the picture? See how white/pale the ones in the picture are? Mine have a very yellow look, although you cannot see it well in this picture. It was tasty enough but I think it is more caloric than other low carb wraps I’ve tried.
It is pretty sturdy but as you can see, nothing as white as what is pictured. This was the last of my prepared wraps, so I’ll be needing to make up a batch of wraps soon. I don’t think I’ll make this one again because of the pork rinds. I’ll work on finding a new recipe. I may try the THM one again. (The one from the Trim Healthy Table Cookbook.) The problem with the THM one is it uses baking blend but it has flax in it, so Tiffany can’t have them. So I’ll be looking for one she can have or maybe modify one of these.
I’ll post again when I find a wrap recipe that is sturdy and lower in calories. Yeah, I know, we don’t worry about calories but since I’m menopausal I need all the help I can get and the higher calorie intake of keto recipes is not conducive to me losing weight.
Until next time,
