When people hear the word wraps, they normally associate them with carbs. But this keto wraps recipe is different. They are made from coconut flour and are therefore suitable if you are following a low carb or keto diet.
The coconut flour makes them very light and fluffy and since no eggs and dairy are used for these keto wraps, they are also vegan-friendly.
The best thing about using coconut flour is that the wraps are nutritious and a whole lot cheaper compared to other low carb flours.
Coconut flour absorbs more liquid than other low carb flours so there tends to be more liquid ingredients in recipes that use it.
