OK, before you get your hopes up, this is not a coconut wrap recipe (although it would be super cool if anyone has one they want to share in the comments below).
This is just a review of a great product I found at Food Compass that I thought might interest some of my gluten-free, low-carb, Trim Healthy Mama friends out there.
The product is called Pure Wraps and it's a pack of four small tortillas/wraps made out of coconut meal and sea salt.
If you can see in the photo above, I filled mine with basil pesto, tuna, cottage cheese, cucumber and tomato.
That's a pretty wet mixture, which would usually turn my tortilla or mountain bread wrap into a soggy mess, but the cool thing about these Pure Wraps is that they are almost glossy, so the liquid doesn't penetrate. The Pure Wraps hold up really well and are beautifully pliable.
They do have a slight coconut flavour, understandably, but I didn't find it interfering with the taste of the wrap filling. I more noticed it in the smell and as a coconutty aftertaste.
The only improvement I would suggest to the manufacturers is to increase the wrap size, as they are a little on the small side.
Have you come across Pure Wraps before? What did you think of them?
