    Grain-Free Sandwich Wraps | Real Food Outlaws

    I am super excited about this recipe! I have been playing around with varied recipes for flat bread and tortillas from My Heart Beets and Health Starts in the Kitchen and absolutely love the results I’ve gotten! I tweaked the recipes a bit because I was in need of a sandwich wrap and am in love with arrowroot flour!

    My kids love sandwiches for lunch. My oldest asked if I could please make him wraps even though we are grain-free for January. I had made the flat bread/tortillas earlier in the week for the Salmon Salad recipe and knew they would probably work as wraps, but I wanted something a little more nourishing and filling. So, grain-free sandwich wraps were born!

    Arrowroot is wonderful for the gut. It soothes irritated bowels and has a calming quality that can be very healing. It is in stark contrast to some grains that can harm the guts of those sensitive to them. It is sold as arrowroot starch, powder or flour. They are all the same thing. You can also use tapioca starch/flour. It’s slightly “stiffer” but works beautifully. 

    Coconut milk contains lauric acid, antimicrobial lipids and capric acid. These constituents make these a very beneficial milk. Heating it will destroy most of the properties that using it raw would keep intact, but it is still a very healthful ingredient to use in recipes.

    Almond flour should be used in moderation. It takes about 90 almonds to make 1 cup of almond flour. Check out this article from Empowered Sustenance about the problems with almond flour.  I have read the pros and cons and still choose to use it…just not in everything and not all the time. Coconut flour is a good alternative and I will be experimenting with it for wraps very soon.

    Gelatin Hydrosylate – This doesn’t actually “gel” in the recipe because it is a hydrosylate, but I like to sneak in gelatin to recipes whenever I can. It adds protein, amino acids and other valuable nutrition. For more information about gelatin and gelatin hydrosylate, click here.

    The yield for the recipe is about 22 6-inch wraps. I make a big batch and refrigerate the extras to use throughout the week. I’m assuming you can freeze them, but I haven’t tried to be sure.

    *Update: This is a very basic recipe and it has come to my attention that there is one that is pretty much identical out there. I would like to give a shout-out to Cassidy’s Craveable Creations.

    These take awhile to make if you do them one-at-a-time. I suggest you use a large pancake griddle and do a few at once. I use it as an opportunity to multitask and unload my dishwasher and clean my kitchen! Just be mindful of the stove. If you’re absent-minded like me and really get into your cleaning, you may forget you are cooking something!

    I hope you like these grain-free sandwich wraps! They roll quite nicely and don’t break or tear. My kids like to grill their sandwiches in our panini maker and it works out perfectly with these.

    Be nourished. Be happy.

      I will have to get some arrowroot starch the next chance I get as I had no idea it actually had soothing properties for the gut – very neat! In the meantime, I do have tapioca starch… I think that is similar in consistency to arrowroot? Do you know if that may work instead? I may give it a go and experiment either way ;) Haha. Thanks for the wonderful-sounding recipe!

        Tapioca starch will work. They may be a little stiffer but still sandwich-wrappy:)

      What would you use instead of eggs???

      • January 12, 2014 at 7:05 am

        You would have to look for a different recipe. I haven’t experimented with replacing the eggs in this one.

      Could I use almond milk in place of coconut milk? Thanks!

      These look delicious! Can’t wait for the one with coconut flour as well.

      These look fabulous! They remind me of crepes. Do you have a tutorial on making the almond flour yourself?

      Thanks for sharing on Allergy Free Wednesdays, I am featuring your post this week!

      excellent, looking forward to trying this recipe, though I think I’ll halve it the first time. Are ground almonds the same as almond flour?

      • January 22, 2014 at 11:04 am

        Almond flour is super fine like a regular flour. Ground almonds need to be ground very fine to work and blanched first to remove the skins.

      I just tried these for my white flour tortilla loving husband. He loved them. They are very soft, chewy, and delicious!

      I’m gonna try these-they look awesome! Can you revive them after putting them in the fridge or do you have to eat all at once?

      Delicious! I just made some for breakfast and made PB and banana wraps! So glad to have a good GF wrap.

      I’m curious about the best way to store these and how long they last?

        Nevermind, just read the whole post! I will try freezing them the next time I make them and see how they do. I only made 1/4 batch since my girls have rather refined palettes and so I have learned to not make a lot of something the first time or I may be the one eating it all!

      Made these today and I can’t even begin to say how awesome they are. Can’t believe there is a grain free wrap that is so flexible and delicious. And I didn’t have blanched almond flour…only almond meal and they came out great.

      Made these in a larger skillet and used them to make burritos. HUGE hit! Even my foodie hubby loved them!

      We had a burrito left over and I noticed that when I reheated it, the wrap got yummy crunchy on the edges. I may try making “tortilla” chips.

      Oh My goodness! I have been looking for a grain free wrap and found several that called for lots and lots of eggs!! Then I found this recipe, your recipe!! I LOVE it!
