Flax Seed Tortilla/Pita wraps

It's all about wraps. That's what I'm making today. I have used this wrap for a soft shell taco. I also used it as a pita for a gyro using my recipe for greek style meatballs. I even added a little agave and cinnamon and made a crepe that was filled with summer berry compote and goat milk yogurt sweetened with a little agave.
It's super easy to make substitutions and create a totally different dish with the same basic recipe.
I use ground golden flax seed that I bought at Costco. It is a little lighter texture and lighter in color.

I picked this recipe because of ease of preparation. One recipe I tried used egg whites. That left me with a whole lot of egg yolks in my refrigerator. Now I found a great recipe for the egg yolks but I prefer using the whole egg. SOOOO whole eggs are used in this recipe.

Flax Seed Pita

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup water(more water if you like the batter thinner, I added more water)
  • 3/8 cup ground flax seed
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 Tbs melted coconut oil or grape seed oil

  1. Mix all ingredients together.
  2. Heat skillet and add a little coconut oil to skillet.
  3. Add just less than 1/4 cup batter to skillet and spread batter thin using a spoon or spatula.
  4. Once the batter begins to bubble it is time to flip the pita.
  5. Watch the heat as it can over heat very quickly.
  6. This batter makes approx 5 or 6 pitas based on how big you make them.

Remember, It's all about the wrap. It's easy to keep these wraps on hand by making extra and storing in a ziplock bag in the fridge.
It doesn't take a lot of time to make wholesome food that is good for you and the bonus is, you KNOW what is in your food.
How did you make your wraps?
