Those simple-to-make flaxseed keto wraps need only finely ground flax to transform your wish for a flatbread to a vegan, grain-free, gluten-free, and diabetes-friendly option for your meals.

Can you Eat Wraps on Keto?

It would be best if you did not consume regular wraps, tortillas, or flatbread in your lifestyle.

With those perfect recipes, which only contain ingredients allowed in our lifestyle, they are a great addition. Having bread recipes or wraps without carbs is an excellent addition to your kitchen.

Apart from today’s recipe, you can try and make perfectly shaped fiber tortillas made out of our famous fathead dough, just swapping a few ingredients.

Alternatively, look at our tasty oat fiber, almond flour tortillas, or taco shells.

Is Flaxseed Low Carb?

Flaxseeds are fully low-carb, and even keto, since all the carbohydrates they contain are fiber. With 7 grams of carbs and 7 grams of fiber, you get a beautiful 0 net carbs per piece.

They are perfect for digestion and are sometimes advisable to eat if you have problems with regular stool.

Is Flax Seed Vegan?

Flax Seeds are a great addition to vegans as they are a part of plant-based food. Different varieties and the possibility of grinding them into flour is an excellent addition to cooking and baking.

How do you eat Flaxseeds?

You can consume raw flaxseeds, either whole or ground.

We like to add the flaxseeds on top of our crackers for additional flaxseed flavor when used as a whole or sprinkle on yogurt for a morning keto breakfast.

As grounded, they are perfect for thickening our dishes, as they do absorb a lot of water.

You can also add them in some recipes as a replacement for eggs.

Some say to get the most nutrition out of the flaxseeds is only by consuming them grounded.

We like to grind whole flaxseeds at home in a Magic Bullet, blender, or coffee grinder and then keep them in a Mason Jar in the fridge for up to a week. Grind only the amount you can consume within a few days to have them always fresh and ready.

What are the Nutritions of Keto Tortilla?

Since this recipe is made entirely out of flaxseeds (adding garlic and salt only for a taste), the nutritions are as if you would eat spoons of your flaxseeds.

They are rich in omega-3 acids and vitamin B. Containing magnesium, calcium, and iron makes you want them to be consumed daily.

Although they contain some carbohydrates, most of them are fiber, which makes them fully low carb and keto and is a big part of our lifestyle.

Here comes the complete step-by-step process of making those delicious keto wraps recipe as easy for you as possible. I have also included a video with instructions for you to understand all better.

STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR FLAXSEED WRAP RECIPE

First Step: Prepare Ingredients

Prepare your ingredients for making the best and easiest tortilla recipe ever.

Flax seeds can be dark or light, whichever you prefer. The only difference would be the shade of your wraps at the end.

Water should be boiling for the flax to work.

You could add salt, pepper, dry garlic, or spices for extra flavor.

Second Step: Grind the Flaxseeds

Using golden flaxseeds, place whole seeds into the Magic Buller or coffee grinder and grind all of the seeds until you get grounded fine meal flour like consistency.

If you already have grounded flaxseeds or have bought flaxseed flour, you can skip this step.

I have used one and a half cups of flaxseed, which is 200 grams, to help you understand if you will use flour.

Third Step: Add Spices

Place the grounded flaxseeds into a bowl big enough to mix them in.

Add garlic and salt – that is in the case of our recipe. You can also add the herbs you like or think would be perfect. You can entirely skip this step and only use flaxseeds.

Fourth Step: Boiling Water

Add boiling water to the bowl. You have to have your water boiling; otherwise, you will not get the smooth consistency, and the dough will become clumpy. Do not even try the lukewarm water – same results. It needs to be boiling water.

Fifth Step: Mix

Mix them with a wooden spoon until the meal absorbs all the water.

Properly mix and form a dough. Work the dough until you achieve a beautiful dough ball consistency.

Sixth step: Split the dough

It depends on how thin and big you can make your flaxseed keto wraps. Form a ball, and divide the dough into 6-8 pieces using a knife or spatula. For big ones, split the dough into 4 equal pieces.

Seventh Step: Roll

Start rolling the dough into a thin, rounded shape on parchment paper or a nonstick silicone mat. Try to roll it as thin as possible, but not entirely thin. Otherwise, you will not be able to lift the wrap from the silicone mat.

Eighth Step: Shape the Keto Wraps

Cut parchment paper into smaller squares. You will need this for placing the wraps on it for easier handling.

Press the dough with a round bowl or a plate to get an even and precise shape. Cut around the edges and remove the dough sticking out.

Ninth Step: Lift and roll

Using a long knife or spatula, slowly get the wraps onto a pre-cut piece of parchment paper. Please see the video for better understanding.

Keep rolling and making wraps until you get the entire dough rolled. I was able to make 8 medium size wraps from this amount.

Make sure each of the wraps is placed on a separate parchment paper. Otherwise, they will stick to each other.

Tenth Step: Prepare to cook

Preheat the pan to medium-high.

Once you have ready all the flaxseed keto wraps, start roasting or cooking the wraps. You can use a few drops of oil if you do not have a nonstick pan.

Eleventh Step: Cook the Flaxseed Keto Wraps

As seen in the video, cook the tortillas on each side for about a minute, pressing gently from time to time. Once you see they are done, place them on a plate and serve. They are still a bit soft in the middle but extra tasty.

Those full instructions will help you better understand how to make them.

It looks complicated at the beginning, but once you make them for the first time and grasp it, they are fast and easy to make.

Tips and Tricks to make these Tortillas:

  • Sticky dough – if you still find the dough very sticky, add a bit more grounded flaxseeds and mix again. You can also wet your hand for easier handling. Some add a bit of coconut flour to help the stickiness.
  • Shaping bowl keeps getting sticky -water the rims of a plate or a bowl you use to shape the keto wraps.
  • Different types of flaxseeds – if you do not have light or golden flaxseeds, you can replace them with dark or brown ones. They are identical. Only the color of your wraps would be a bit darker.
  • Flaxseed meal – if you only have flaxseed flour, you can skip step one and continue. Ensure the flour is not un-fattened. Otherwise, it will be very dry, and they will need much more water to get the same consistency.
  • Can not lift the wrap after rolling it – if it is challenging to raise the already rolled wrap, either start again or make it a bit thicker. Also, you can try rolling in straight on parchment paper, which you will lift.
  • Tortilla press – when you own a tortilla press, you can shape the wraps using one. Place one dough ball between two plastic wraps to prevent stickiness.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

What to serve with Flaxseed Tortillas?

You can use them as a wrap or a side dish for all yummy dishes.

Fill them with avocado egg saladtaco meat, or broccoli salad. Sprinkle with enchilada sauce or salsa.

Serve with goulashvenison chili, or one of 35 soup recipes.

What Type of Flaxseeds to use for Keto Wraps?

In this recipe, I have used whole light or golden flax seeds.

But feel free to experiment with dark seeds, already-made flour, or ground flaxseeds. Just skip those steps in the instructions and enjoy.

Can I use Flaxseed Meal instead of Grinding the Flaxseed into Fine flour?

If you already have a flax meal in the kitchen, you can use that instead. It will save you the time of grinding your flax. Just make sure the meal is fresh.

How Long do Homemade Wraps Last?

As those keto wraps are made of flaxseeds and water, nothing else would save them from lasting longer. Therefore I suggest making precisely the amount you are ready to consume. Or once you make these wraps, keep them in the fridge for not longer than 3 days.

Can you Freeze Keto Wraps?

If you still make more than you can consume and do not want to consume them the next day, I suggest freezing them.

Freeze only already-made keto wraps. Otherwise, you will have lots of water to deal with while unfreezing. Also, separate each flatbread with parchment paper for easier handling.

We LOVE your Flaxseed Keto Wraps! They are so quick and easy and uncomplicated. I have probably 3 dozen recipes for Paleo & Keto tortillas, wraps, flatbreads, naan, etc., and this one is about the best! I was amazed how it didn't taste "flaxy" and the texture is not gummy like flax can make breads be. Planning and making dinner with tortillas for tacos, burritos, or enchiladas, etc. has been a chore I didn't often do, but this recipe makes it much more do-able when I don't plan far ahead. Thank you!
