Egg White Wraps Ingredients
There are only 2 main ingredients in these wraps.:
egg whites – It’s an egg white tortilla so you can’t get by making it without egg whites.
almond flour or corn starch – Many recipes call for corn starch, but I prefer using almond flour on most days to keep this grain free. Xanthan gum is another option. However, people on gut healing protocols may want to avoid the use of Xanthan gum so see the above options provided.
salt – optional – for flavor
black pepper – optional – to personal taste
Nut Free Option
If you want to make these nut free use 8 teaspoons of arrowroot powder instead of the noted almond flour in the recipe.
8-inch skillet – for large beautiful tortillas
large spatula – to flip those tortillas
egg separator – Not a necessity, but it makes the job much easier.
blender – to mix egg white mixture
