Love bread? Love wraps? Love sandwiches? Us too!
We won’t lie, it’s not always easy living a paleo life. Believe it or not, we don’t just cook and exercise all day (we wish!).
After a crazy busy day at work, sometimes the last thing we want to think about is cooking (we are usually like: fail to plan, plan to fail…but we are all human!) Even deciding what to make is a task, then to face the supermarket crowds and to finally cook and prepare the meal…it’s just a little overwhelming.
Just one year ago on days like this we would have happily made a selection of ‘delicious’ toasted sandwiches and wraps, these were staples in our pantry (as mentioned previously we are ex-bread addicts, happily cured and no longer feeling heavy and lethargic).
What we have discovered is that there really are alternatives for everything. All our recipes are pretty easy to follow and always yummy. But we get it… sometimes you just don’t want to cook!
(Insert dream-like elevator music) If only somewhere sold clean, grain free, dairy free, sugar free, preservative free wraps, now that would be an easy healthy paleo dinner!
Well stop looking! This is where we introduce coconut wraps! Yum! First things first, they are a little expensive so if you still want your bread hit then you’ll want to download our book as it’s full of bread recipes!
Back to the wraps! Before we get to the delish factor, let’s go over what’s in these coconut wraps!
That’s it, they are 100% just coconut wraps! And get this… even the packaging is biodegradable non-GMO cellulose. In English please: there are no plastics with phthalates or dioxins (these are baddies) that could potentially contaminate the wraps. Winning!
Now, back to the delish factor. These coconut wraps have got it! The coconut flavour is not super strong, surprising when you take a look back at the ingredients! Unlike other ‘healthy’ wraps they don’t split the instant you roll and fold them. They can handle moist ingredients: perfect for chicken and avocado (our old favourite).
The exciting thing is, these coconut wraps are so versatile, the hint of coconut means they are easily made into something sweet. How about a banana and almond butter combo? Or even use them for a dessert! We made choc coconut cream cones! If your style is savoury then they are perfect for making your old pastry favourites. We made chicken curry triangles (um, yum).
We know there must be another thousand things you can make with these paleo approved wraps.
They get our tick of approval that’s for sure!
Emma + Carla
paleo choc coconut cream cones.
stuff you need (serves four).
one packet of
one 400 ml can of full fat coconut cream
one and a half tbs of raw cacao
one and a half tbs of natural sweetener
Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius.
Cut each wrap into four squares and then diagonally cut each square (making two triangles).
Wrap each triangle around the handle of a wooden spoon to form a cone.
Rub a splash of water along the join to stick the cone together.
Place cones onto a lined baking tray and bake for two-three minutes (watch very carefully as they brown very fast!)
Let the tubes cool, they will go nice and crisp.
Using an electric beater, whip the coconut cream, cacao and sweetener until peaks form.
Place the cream into a piping bag. Pipe the cream into the cones.
Merrymaker tip: these go well with some fresh berries and melted dark choc!
paleo chicken curry triangles.
stuff you need (makes four).
one packet of The Pure Wraps
500 grams of chicken mince
one onion diced finely
one tbs curry powder
three tsp ground cumin
one tsp ground turmeric
coconut oil for the pan
Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius.
Heat the coconut oil in a pan on high.
Add the diced onion and cook until brown.
Add the chicken mince and all the spices, mix well.
Cook for a further five minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
Get your wraps ready!
Spoon about half a cup of mince into the left corner of each wrap.
Fold diagonally, creating a triangle and continue to fold diagonally.
Take care to retain the triangular shape.
Place on a baking tray and into the oven for around six minutes.
Again watchVERY carefully.
Once the wraps have browned, take them out of the oven and allow to cool for two minutes.
Now go and enjoy!
Merrymaker note: there will be left over mince, we suggest keeping this for breakfast the following morning, or lunch…or dinner.
