I think almond flour is moist and can take a long low temp to crisp up...maybe that could affect also.

Yeah, I think longer baking or possibly dehydrating is a great idea. No water- just egg whites. I will try again- it definitely had possibilities!!

Oooo, I need tortilla bread! I love the suggestions people made to use these as lasagna noodles, wanton wrappers, and manicotti shells too.

how did you get them so thin?

Wow these look great!!! I did mine and they are kinda thin...not as thin as yours but they were too eggy and too...they reminded me of when I used to cook with pork rinds and how it used to feel gelatinous...

How long did you let the eggs/husk mixture sit for before you put it in a pan?

I got 7 at about 7" round. They are very thin and I used garlic and onion powder.

@ouizoid I think I may have let mine sit for way too long because it was very gelatin like and gummy and yikes! I just couldn't eat em.

How many minutes exactly did you allow the mixture to sit for.

I think mine sat for over 5 minutes and by the time i put it into the pan it was super thick I could hardly spread it

Made one. Added onion powder, garlic powder and a little Italian herbs. It turned out great. Very pliable. Thank you, ouizoid. BTW, my spell check wants you to be schizoid! lol

Having problems with these. I want so much to get them to turn out. Even after a minute they are thick and won't spread. Any reason I couldn't immediately pour into a pan after mixing? I've wasted so much of this already that I am getting frustrated.

I think it's fine to go ahead and pour into the pan immediately. I think people are having trouble because there are variations in psyllium husk so whatever works for you

It works so much better for me to cut the recipe into thirds - i.e., 1/3 cup egg white. 1 tbs. psyllium. That way the batter doesn't set up too much and it's so easy to swirl it around in your pan to get the size you want. Need more tortillas, just mix up another batch. Love this recipe, Ouizoid!

Oooh, good idea. The first one was the easiest for me to get sort of ok so maybe if I just try to make only one and immediately pour it into the pan, I'll get them to come out!

I get two from the 1/3 batch method czelzler. Had two tonight with Hebrew National Hot Dogs rolled up inside - yummy!

Edited to add: It is mentioned in the instructions but just to make sure, I'll reiterate - it is really important to have your skillet HOT when you start. When the skillet is nice and hot, your first tortilla is done in seconds so the rest of the batter doesn't have time to set up too much.

Okay, I know this an older thread but they sound awesome!!

So, I was wondering if anyone has used powdered egg whites with the psyllium instead of the liquid whites? If so, what quantity did you use and how much water/liquid did you use to thicken it up?

TIA!!! Happy Day to ya!

I am betting you can use the powdered egg whites..Just follow the instructions on the container and make them up and make sure there are no lumps..1/3 of a cup of whites
is 1/3 of a cup of powdered egg whites with water added.

SassySauce, thanks for bumping this - I'm newly returned to the site and this has been my project for the day. I've tried it as wrap for chicken salad, like crepe for a cinnamon cottage cheese blintz and lastly as a pancake alternative for my daughter. I started a thread with recipe variations as I'm eager for new ideas. Now I need to find a recipe for egg yolks.

how does everyone deal with that 'flat' weird pysillium taste? I have trouble taking even the flavoured metamucil because of the horrible nasty taste of the pysillium...maybe I'm just too sensitive to it...

You can't taste the psyllium flavor - or at least I couldn't and I was very skeptical first time I tried this recipe this morning.

Something about the cooking probably changes that. ??

I was expecting that weird taste for it since I've taken psyllium for years and know exactly what you mean.

Yes - Psyllium and egg whites are pretty much the only ingredients although I've added spices, etc. depending on what I'm making.

One more quick question. Do I need to oil the pan first when cooking these?

Thanks,

Well I finally got my act together and made these wraps today, just the original basic recipe. DH has a problem with "scorched" eggs (meaning browned in any way) so wasn't sure if he'd go for them - but he did! I spread a little guacamole on one, then some shredded Costco rotisserie chicken, rolled it and we split it. Yum yum!

I plan to make some green enchiladas later this week using these "tortillas" - what an easy recipe! THANKS OUIS!
