What Are Flaxseed Wraps?

You know how much I love healthy finger food especially wraps! I have a passion for creating keto wrap recipes.

This recipe is a keto version of my classic 2-ingredient tortillas or my flour tortilla recipe.

While I love my low-carb spinach taco shells, I won’t make them anymore when hubby is home.

The tacos contain eggs and cheese, which are not compatible with his vegan diet.

That’s why today I am sharing with you a totally new, almost no-carb wrap recipe that is also vegan.

But before sharing the recipe, let me answer a few questions that you’re probably asking yourself.

Flaxseed Wraps keto

Is Flaxseed Keto-Friendly? Is Flaxseed Low In Carbs?

Flaxseed is a great super-food to add to your keto diet plan. It contains 71% of fat from healthy omega-3 fatty acids, which is ideal for reaching your fat macros quickly.

Plus, it has only 3g net carbs per 100g, and 46% of the carbs in flaxseed are non-digestible fibers. If you are looking for a vegan and keto option, this is the one to eat.

Can you eat wraps on keto?

Yes, you can definitely have a good low-carb wrap on a keto diet if the wrap is made of low-carb flour.

The best keto wrap recipes are made of flaxseed, almond flour, or coconut flour. Typical keto wraps contain between 2g and 4g of net carbs per serve, which is within the acceptable range on a keto diet.

These flaxseed wraps are very low carb with only 1.2g of net carbs per wrap, so a big YES for all keto wrap lovers like me!

How Can I Use Flaxseed On A Keto Diet?

You can make use of raw flaxseed or ground flaxseed in many different recipes like keto wraps recipe, flaxseed bread, flaxseed crackers, or simply add some flaxseed powder to thicken a smoothie without adding sugar!

What are the benefits of eating flaxseeds?

Flaxseeds or linseeds contain many beneficial nutrients for your health. The most important are:

  • Omega 3 fatty acids, also known as “the good fats,” protect your heart, and they have been shown as beneficial nutrients to decrease triglycerides and lower blood pressure.
  • Lignans, flaxseed is the plant with the more lignans, an antioxidant found in the fiber part of flaxseeds. Lignans are also phytoestrogens, a plant nutrient that somehow could act like the female hormone estrogen. This is a very controversial topic, and scientists aren’t sure how much lignans impact our hormones. While some studies seem to prove that it can help fight breast cancer, others demonstrated that phytoestrogens don’t mimic estrogen at all and rather prevent the formation of blood tumors.
  • Fiber flaxseed contains 27g of fiber per 100g. Note that it is recommended to eat about 25g of fiber daily for women and 38g for men.

This said, let’s have a little closer look at our flaxseed wrap recipe and its nutritional info.

Flaxseed wraps nutrition

One flaxseed wrap contains all your needs to reach your fat macros on a keto low-carb diet with 17.7 grams of fat per wrap, coming from healthy omega-3 fatty acids.

Bonus, it also covers 60% of your daily fiber intake with 11.6g of fiber per wrap, bringing those keto wraps to only 1.1g of net carbs.

A single wrap has as much as 11.6g of proteins to keep you full or refuel your muscle after a workout.

How To Make Flaxseed Wraps With 4 Ingredients

All you need to make those delicious flaxseed wraps are 4 basic ingredients.

Ingredients

  • Flaxseed meal – I make my own using flaxseed to blend into a fine meal. I love to make my own because the one from my store is too coarse. You need to use a flaxseed meal that looks like an almond meal, with no pieces of flaxseed left, or the recipe won’t work either. Get your meal as fine as possible using your blender or buy a meal that doesn’t contain unground seeds – large pieces won’t absorb the same amount of water in the recipe, and the batter won’t form a dough in the same way – it will remain way too sticky. Below is my flaxseed meal made in less than 1 minute in my simple blender.
  • Boiling water – Do not use cold water, or this recipe won’t work. Make sure you remove the saucepan from the heat before adding the meal to make sure it doesn’t stick to the saucepan. Then, be patient, and stir until the mixture forms a ball that doesn’t stick to the pan and that you can hold in your hand. Then, roll the dough between pieces of parchment paper to prevent the dough from sticking to your benchtop or rolling pin.
  • Spices – I used a combo of spices with good anti-inflammatory properties: turmeric, ginger, garlic, and onion. But use what you like, of course!

Making The Batter

When combined with boiling water, the fiber absorbs the water, gradually forming an elastic dough ball.

That elasticity from the dough will be critical to making perfect wraps that won’t break when you start filling and folding them.

How to make round-shape wraps

I used a saucepan lid that I placed on top of my rolled dough to shape a lovely circle. It is optional, but it makes such a nice wrap to serve!

Reuse the leftover dough from the edge to make an extra wrap!

Flaxseed Wraps keto

Flaxseed Wraps Fillings

Flaxseed wraps are bland in flavor, especially if you are using golden flaxseed – brown flaxseed is slightly bitter.

That’s why I recommend adding my combo of spices in the batter to give these wraps an extra boost of flavor. Otherwise, the texture is soft, a bit grainy, and delicious.

Your filling will make all the difference.  My favorite vegan, low-carb wrap fillings are the ones below, added in this order. I also add some homemade low-carb tortillas chips on the side.

  • a layer of dairy-free coconut yogurt
  • mint leaves
  • fresh lettuce blend
  • cucumber sticks, skin-on for extra fiber
  • cherry tomatoes
  • a drizzle of lemon juice
  • salt & pepper
  • many avocado slices – like half an avo per wrap!
  • Chili sauce or mustard

My husband loves it simple. A drizzle of tahini, lettuce, cucumber, and vegan barbecue sauce – this is not low-carb, but oh well, he likes to have a fair amount of carbs for his running!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Flaxseed or 1 1/2 cup flaxseed meal
  • 1 cup Water boiled
  • ½ teaspoon Salt

Spices – optional but delicious

Instructions

  • In a blender, add the flaxseed, blend at high speed until it forms a ground/meal. You can also use a flaxseed meal from the store but make sure the meal is as fine as almond meal, or it won't absorb all the water in the recipe, and it will get sticky.
  • In a small saucepan, bring the water to a boil. 
  • Remove from the heat, stir in all the spices and add the flaxseed meal all at once. 
  • Stir immediately with a wooden spoon until the meal absorbs all the water, dry out and form a dough ball. As you stir, the dough will form, it will gradually unstick from the saucepan forming a dough ball. It takes about 1-2 minutes max. 
  • Remove the dough ball from the saucepan and transfer it onto a piece of parchment paper to prevent the dough from sticking to your benchtop. The dough should not be too sticky, or if it does become sticky, it means your meal wasn't fine enough, but that is ok. Just sprinkle some extra meal onto the ball. 
  • Divide the ball into 4 dough balls of the same size. Place one of the dough balls onto a piece of parchment paper. Place another piece of parchment paper on top to prevent the dough from sticking to the rolling pin. Press the dough balls with your hands slightly to flatten and stick the top parchment paper piece to the ball.
  • Roll with a rolling pin until flat but not too thin, or it won't get soft when cooked. Aim for a 2-3mm thickness. Peel off the top piece of parchment paper. 
  • Take a round shape – like a saucepan lid – place it on top of the dough, and cut around the edges to make a circle. Remove the left-over dough, form a ball, and reuse it later for another wrap if you like.
  • Remove the lid and flip over the prepared wrap onto a non-stick pan – I use a ceramic non-stick pan or tortilla press. Peel off the last piece of parchment paper and cook. If you are not using a non-stick pan, spray some oil before putting the wrap into the pan.
  • Warm under high-medium heat and cook for 1-2 minutes or until the border gets dry – the center should be soft  – and you can easily slip a spatula under the wrap to flip over.
  • Cook for about 1 extra minute on the other side. Don't overcook, or the wrap will get very crispy, like tortillas chips! It has to be dry but soft to roll.
  • Place the cooked wraps on a plate.
  • Repeat those steps with the rest of the batter until you form 4 wraps (or 5, if you use the leftover dough from the edges, you can make an extra one!). It depends on how thick you made your wraps. You can reuse the same piece of parchment paper many times!
  • Serve them cold with filling of your choice or hot – you can also rewarm them in a sandwich press with your favorite filling.
  • Store in the fridge for 3 days, on a plate covered with plastic wrap, to keep them moist. 
Choosing flaxseed: golden flaxseed has a better taste than brown flaxseed. It can be bitter. I recommend using golden flaxseed if you don’t appreciate the slight bitterness of brown flaxseed. Both have the same nutrition properties.
Spices: use the spices you love like ground paprika, nutritional yeast, dried herbs. Spices are really recommended to add some flavor to the wrap as flaxseed could be very ‘blend’ in flavor.
Ground/meal: it is important to use finely ground meal, or it won’t absorb all the water. If you bought ground flaxseed that is too thick – still can see pieces of flaxseed – process for a few minutes in a blender before use.
Pan: use a non-stick pan – ceramics are the best, no need for oil. But if you are not using a non-stick pan, spray some oil before adding the wrap into the pan.
Freezing: Freeze them as regular wraps – make sure you wrap them flat inside a ziplock plastic bag. Defrost 2-3 hours before, or do it the previous day. Slightly rewarm in a frying pan for a few seconds without oil. Or wrap the food you like in there and wrap in a sandwich press!

    274 Thoughts On Flaxseed Wraps (Keto, Vegan, Gluten-Free)

  1. 5 stars
    I made these using Bobs Red Mill Flaxseed Meal, which is pretty widely available in the US. It worked really well with the recipe as written. With one cup boiling water, I had almost no stickiness at all and my little balls rolled out quite easily. I made a couple on the thin side, like tortillas and a couple a bit thicker, more like a thin pita. I like the thick ones more- they are quite flexible. The flavor to me reminds me of falafel. They are very yummy and satisfying when wrapped around shredded chicken with veggies and tzatziki sauce.

  2. Hello there, I tried two of your recipes today and not sure what happened. The flax wraps, I had to add an extra cup of flaxseed and it was still sticky and not like dough like in your pictures. I followed the steps anyway and it was still sticky in the middle even cooking the wrap in the pan. It also didnt crack per se, but pulled apart/tore at a crease caused by the parchment paper, like it didnt bind well or something and it tasted ‘fishy’ in the end (is that normal)? Ive kept my flaxseed in the fridge and was opened about 3 months ago. Could you help me figure out what may have went wrong? TIA!

    I tried this recipe, came out good👍 . I tweeked it by adding 1 teaspoon of coconut flour because mine was a tad too sticky. Im mexican, so i had a tortilla press in hand. I highly recommend using a tortilla press if u can, its so much easier than using the rolling pin and the saucerpan top. I made these in like 5-7 min, so easy w the press.

    Wow! This recipe is so good & easy to make. I followed your instructions exactly. I add some of the spices (onion,garlic) which helped cut the flax taste. I used an oiled cast iron & played around with sizes. I’m so happy I can enjoy tacos and burritos with my family while on a low carbs diet. Thank you!

  5. I love so many of your recipes, but this one was a miss. I could not get them to fry nicely. Even in a cm of oil. Sticky mess. Now, they are in the oven. Do you have any baking tips for people who don’t have no-stick pans? Thank!

    • I am sorry to hear that! The flatbread shouldn’t be fried at all, you should only rub a tiny amount of oil in an non stick pan. I am not sure why your dough was so sticky, probably too much moisture left in the dough. You can try a thinner flax ground – more water absorbent – or cook the dough longer in the saucepan. I hope it helps. Carine

  6. Oh dear, tasted nice,but couldn’t get them right. I think it might be like pancakes! Tasted great though.

    Made these tonight and they were perfect! These will go into regular rotation. I’m still in awe as to how perfect the recipe came out! 10 stars!

    The recipe looks great and I can’t wait to try it, but I do have a question.

    The Pinterest advertising says it’s a zero carb recipe, but that is not accurate, according to the post and the actual recipe it’s 1.2 net carbs. It is indeed very low carb, but it’s not zero carb.

    • We didn’t advertise zero carbs on Pinterest, our pin image shows the 1.2 g net carbs. However, thousands people pin this image everyday and add the description they one. Then, the image is repins by others and I am not responsible for the description of the pin people choose to use on their pin. Enjoy.

    Yummy! I don’t have a ceramic pan so I used someone’s tip in these comments, cast iron pan with coconut oil. I live in Vancouver with 96% humidity (today) so I should have cut the water a lot! I ended up adding another 1/2 cup flax meal so I got 6 wraps. I also added a LOT of salt! My first couple turned out odd looking but delicious but I improved as I went along ! These are terrific. Thank you!

  10. 5 stars
    Wow I was about giving up .tried and tried cauliflower and almond wraps (always break when filling..get I annoyed)hard workpressing out waterfrom cauli.
    But today, awesome! Your flaxseed wrap saved the day with my teenagers eating too..Easy prep did sticky mess my hands didn’t break either!
    Thankyou I have already add to my notebook

  11. 5 stars
    These were delicious and turned out almost perfect except that they broke a part a little instead of being pliable. I think maybe I overlooked them a little? They were also a little browned in places, where I noticed yours aren’t. Thanks!

  12. This unfortunately did not work for me, not sure what i did wrong 🙁 the dough was just too sticky no matter how much flax I kept adding to the mixture…..
