Low Calorie Wraps

When it comes to homemade bread recipes with few ingredients, my favorite recipes to make are keto tortillas, keto rolls, and these low calorie wraps. 

Why you need these low calorie wraps-

  • Cheaper than store bought. Most wraps cost around $3-$5 for a pack of 8. With this recipe, you’ll make at least 20 tortillas and the overall costs are less than $2! 
  • Tiny ingredient list. Most store bought tortillas have at least 8 ingredients, and many contain shortening and sugar. For these homemade ones, you need just 5 ingredients (including water and salt).
  • Less than 100 calories per serving. Each tortilla yields 92 calories and no hidden fiber or carbs. 
  • Multipurpose! Use these wraps for sandwiches, thin crust pizzas, quesadillas, soft tacos, and more. 

Now, depending on where in the world you’re located, you may refer to these as wraps or you may refer to these as tortillas. Regardless, the secret to perfect low calorie wraps or low calorie tortillas is to give them enough time to rest. Allowing them to rest sufficiently before cooking them up will yield perfectly pliable and soft wraps that NEVER break apart!

How do you make low calorie tortillas? 

The Ingredients

  • All purpose flour– Also known as plain flour. Be sure to sift your flour very well to ensure there are no clumps throughout. 
  • Baking powder– The leavening agent used to give the tortillas they pliable and chewy texture. 
  • Salt– Just a pinch. 
  • Olive oil– The best oil to use for homemade wraps. Avoid using flavorful oils like coconut or peanut, as they leave some aftertaste in the wraps. 
  • Warm water– Not boiling hot water. 

The Instructions

In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt, and using a wooden spoon, mix until combined. Gently add the olive oil and warm water and mix until a sticky and thick dough remains. Next, lightly flour a kitchen surface and transfer the dough into it. Using your hands, gently knead the dough for several minutes until smooth. Once smooth, divide the dough into 24 portions and press down into a thick, circular shape. Cover the dough for an hour to rest. 

Now, after the dough has had time to rest, use a rolling pin to roll out each portion of dough until around 7-inches in diameter. Place the tortilla on a plate or flat surface and place a piece of parchment paper on top. Repeat the dough rolling process and be sure to place parchment paper between each tortilla, to avoid them sticking together.

Finally, heat a non-stick pan and place it over medium heat. Once hot, add the first wrap to it and cook for a minute, before flipping over and cooking for another minute. Remove the tortilla from the pan and place it large, sealable container, to keep them soft. Wipe the pan clean and repeat the process, until all the tortillas are cooked.

FAQ and tips to make the best recipe

Are wraps good for weight loss?

I firmly believe any food can be perfectly fine as part of a weight-loss diet. At the end of the day, it comes down to how much you are eating of any one food.

With these wraps clocking in at under 100 calories apiece, they are a fabulous food to include on a weight loss diet. Fill them with low calorie vegetables, lean protein, avocado, and some light dressing and you’ll have a filling and healthy meal. 

What are the best low calorie wraps and tortillas?

If you must buy your own wraps, here are the lowest calorie ones available on the market-

  • Mission foods– This brand has a plethora of wrap options available, including low carb and high fiber varieties. Most clock in around 90-120 calories per wrap. 
  • Flatout– Flatout has original and flavored wraps, between 90-120 calories each. While delicious, be wary that they have added sweeteners and fiber in many of their offerings. 
  • Norigami– Perfect for those following a lower carb diet. 

Low calorie wrap ideas
