[Healthy_Recipes_For_Diabetic_Friends] Low Carb Tortilla


Low Carb Tortilla

8 oz cream cheese, softened
3 eggs
1/3 cup unsweetened, unflavored whey protein
3 Tbsp oat flour, ground from rolled oats
2 Tbsp flax meal
1 Tbsp oat fiber
1/4 tsp psyllium powder
1/8 tsp onion powder
1 tsp baking powder (increase to 1 1/2 tsp for Indian Naan bread)
2 Tbsp heavy cream
2 Tbsp water (1 Tbsp more if your batter is too thick to spread out to 7
inch diameter)

In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese with a wooden spoon until
smooth. Add eggs and beat with immersion or electric hand mixer until
smooth as possible. Add remaining ingredients and beat well. The
mixture will be about like pancake batter. Lightly oil your flat
plate. Using a 1/4 c. measuring cup, scoop the batter onto the plate,
spreading with a rubber spatula to about 7″ diameter. My cake plate has
concentric decorations that make this much easier. Microwave on HI for
70 seconds or until dry to the touch int he center. Remove and gently
fun a thin metal spatula under the edges to loosen. Lift off plate with
your hands and place on paper towels. Tip: next time you buy in-store
handmade tortillas that have plastic separators, don't throw them away!
I save them as they are wonderful for such uses. Make the remaining
tortillas (you should get 8 total) in a similar manner, rinsing batter
residue off plate and re-oiling it between each baking. Use a paper
towel or plastic sheet between them as you stack them to finish cooling.
This will prevent them from sticking together.

Optional, you can slightly brown these a bit on both sides (as in my
picture) in a dry non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. I prefer
them browned myself. This step enhances both appearance, flavor and
handle-ability, but is not absolutely necessary if you're in a hurry to
eat. :)

Makes: 8 - 7 inch wraps or tortillas
