Gluten Free Wraps

I don't know why but wraps seem to become a staple for gluten free people, maybe it's because a lot don't like the bread. However gluten free wraps aren't the cheapest to buy but they are really easy to make yourself, they don't take much effort at all, can be cooked in batch and frozen, great to have in for that quick lunch.

Method

1. Mix together dry ingredients and then add in all the wet and mix well to form a dough ball.

2. Split the dough ball into 6, roll into walnut sized balls and then roll out into very think sheets, roughly 6 inches wide and barely 1 or 2mm in thickness.

3. Fry each for 2 mins on each side on a medium heat until both sides are nicely browned. Eat warm or cold, also perfect to freeze.

The dough may be slightly to thick, may need a little less flour.

My mixture is a liquid & not a dough. Why?

If the mix turns out to wet add a little flour until it firms up.

I don't see why you couldn't, should work just as well as other flour, might just have a slight coconutty taste to it. We usually make our death by coconut cake when we have coconut flour.

Hi Helen, we add in yeast as it gives the wraps a nice texture and flavour. It is obviously killed straight off due to the hot water, but the flavour and texture will remain, but it will not rise like normal bread.

I'm curious - why put yeast in if the dough is given no time to rise?
