There are many recipes for Paleo wraps, tortillas, crepes, whatever you want to call them. This week, I made the Wrap recipe from Against All Grain Meals Made Simple. I like these because unlike my own, which I adopted from a Stupid Easy Paleo recipe for Paleo Tortillas they are a little more fluid and easier to spread thinly on your pan. The recipe said a yield of 12 pcs (8 inch wraps), and the best I could do was 11 with 2 of them quite smaller than the others. In any case, I used store bought almond milk and the one I had in the home was the unsweetened vanilla, so these go very well with sweet applications. They are actually ok with what I made them for, which is the Breakfast Burrito recipe from the same book; ok, but definitely a lil off due to the slight hint of vanilla.
Whenever I was home sick as a little girl, my mom and I seemed to end up making crepes together using her crepe maker. She made them “healthier” with wheat germ and I liked that added consistency to the plain recipe. We would make sweet or savory applications; whatever we were in the mood for. I typically rotated through the following: plainly with salted butter; cottage cheese and jam; or chicken, broccoli and cheese (sometimes no chicken).
It’s so nice to be able to recreate crepes without ingredients that harm me.
The combination photographed above is a favorite of mine over the past year. Super simple, super tasty and satisfying.
My Current Version of Paleo Tortillas:
Makes 2 crepes in an 8-10 inch pan
2 TB Arrowroot Powder
1 tsp Coconut Flour
1 tsp Avocado Oil
1/8 tsp Baking Soda
1 Pinch of Salt
Whisk until smooth.
Place pan on medium heat.
Lightly butter the pan.
Pour half batter into pa and cook until edges are dry, then flip to opposite side for a few seconds.
1/2-1 TB sunflower seed butter (or nut butter of your choice)
1/2 TB Enjoy Life Chocolate chips
1 banana, heated
Spread on crepe in your favorite way (the above is my fav layout).
Roll it up and enjoy!
Re: the banana: I typically use the microwave (use a banana ripeness of your choice, all are tasty, but slight green tip is less drippy for less messy eating)
