For the love of going gluten free.

I do not have issues with Gluten!  In fact, I downright adore pretty much anything with gluten in it. I mean what would life be without bread? It would be a barren wasteland if I never got to smell a loaf of fresh baked bread again.

I do, however, have friends who are gluten allergic/intolerant or paranoid of being either of those two. It was for the sake of these friends that I decided to create a quick and easy gluten-free wrap that actually tastes good and doesn’t fall apart under pressure.  I also coach and am friends with a large number of fitness competitors and bodybuilders who are always looking at ways to lighten up on the carb count during contest prep.

 

I read what seemed like a million recipes for low carb flatbreads. So many of them had a ton of weird ingredients and I think most of my readers would pass them by. I wanted to give you guys a simple recipe with just a few healthy ingredients that you could whip up in just a few minutes. That’s pretty nice of me considering I’m all about the bread, ‘bout the bread… oops that’s the bass isn’t it? Well, if you eat less bread and more of these delicious wraps you’ll have a smaller “bass” in no time. Chuckle Chuckle.

 

Low carb Flatbread, Gluten free

Ingredients: (1 wrap)

1          Egg

2          Tablespoons almond meal flour or quinoa flour

pinch    sea salt

pinch    dried chilies

 

Instructions:

1. Place a frying pan on a medium/high heat.

2. Whisk everything together and pour into the frying pan.

3. Swirl the pan to get everything even, like you would with a crepe.  When you can see bubbles that set on the surface, flip the flatbread over.  

4. Cook until golden brown on both sides.

5. Use right away or allow to cool under a cloth to keep it soft.  

 

Tips:

- You can use these for wraps, quesadillas or anything else you’d normally use regular wraps for.

- You can make a huge variety of flavours. Curry, Italian spice, Greek, basically whatever spices you desire.

- Swap out the spices for cinnamon and nutmeg, fill with fruit and fat free cream cheese mixed with stevia and voila, a dessert crepe!

- Spread on your favourite nut butter and some banana slices and immediately flash back to your childhood.
