Low carb wraps?

Are there any low carb wraps that make sense for doing something that is more sweet based? I am looking for a wrap that I could use for cream cheese/coconut meat/raspberries.

Thanks.

I think the Mission low carb tortillas would work pretty well. I usually use the whole wheat ones, but they make one with white flour also.

And they arent bad either - not the best, but MISSION does have different flavors.
However, they stalled me for 6 weeks (I had 2) when I decided to get off induction and the weight loss after that was frustrating

If you live near a Costco (or have a family member with a membership you can coerce/ask/convince into going for you) try the La Tortilla Factory tortillas. I don't eat them anymore (ditched the wheat) but they were quite tasty, low carb, high fiber, and tasted fine when adapted to sweet things. Also freakishly cheap.

I eat the Mission brand, to Me they taste very close to "regular" tortillas.

I use Josephs middle east bakery and mama lupes wraps. I do not eat them to much, maybe once or twice a week. I order them from Netrition when I order my other products. We do not have a cosco around here, I wish we did.

Walmart sells a few of the Joseph's products. They keep them near the bakery, not in the bread aisle. At my store, they are on the bottom shelf of the wall display adjacent to the bakery, where they sell the "Walmart made" bread items.

My husband uses a lot of the Mission LC tortillas. I agree they taste close to "real" and are very sturdy. I find them a bit pricey, but then when you look at what a loaf of good bread costs now, it doesn't seem so bad.

I like Joseph's lavash bread I think they are 4 net carbs for half but they are huge. Thy are also soft and delicious no funny tastes or anything.

it depends on how fussy you are. I would eat sweet stuff wrapped in a low carb whole wheat tortilla (I only use La Tortilla Factory, the small ones) but it's clearly not optimal. you could punch it up by warming the tortilla in a LITTLE melted butter in a skillet to make it taste a little richer/more desserty. I wonder how sprinkling some granular erythritol of xylitol in the butter before cooking would work? might have to work to get the technique right, but it could be much better.

btw, my advice is ALWAYS warm the low carb tortillas in the microwave for 15-20 seconds, even if you are using cold fillings. they are rubbery and unpleasant cold!

If you aren't opposed to trying something different than a grain, try thin sliced turkey breast. With that combo of ingredients, I bet it would be delicious and you can get the turkey in the rectangular shape for easy rolling.

I bet you could make your own with coconut flour, egg and some water to dilute. Maybe I will try and let y'all know!

But I also would agree with the general consensus above about Mission low carb tortillas.

Actually, that would work well with some of the other recipes I have, thanks for that idea. A mild cheese might also work. I have to try to get under 10g carbs per meal, so the low carb tortillas are a bit of a struggle. Where I live, there isn't a lot of option for low carb foods, and they won't deliver from online sources.

I was thinking homemade crepes would work well for a sweeter filling. I've seen some low carb recipes online - I'm not allowed to post the sites, but a search will yield some good and easy recipes.

I think the crepe idea mentioned would be the best. The Joseph's products are the closest to real bread tasting with out that 'wheaty' taste of tortillas. I also like the flar out light flatbreads (8 carbs for the huge one) I usually split it up, but it still has more of a wheat taste.

I've seen a low carb "egg crepe recipe" on the internet.

I bet that would work!

You can google low carb egg crepe but here is the basic idea

2 eggs, 2 tbsp heavy cream, 1 tbsp butter or oil
whisk all together, heat pan, lightly butter, pour in small amounts so crepes are thin, whirl them around sop they cover the bottom of an 8" pan
cook till brown on one side about 2 minutes or so, then flip and do the same,
