Paleo & Whole30 Paleo Wraps

3 Feb

Lookie what I found!  Paleo Wraps from Julian Bakery!  The ingredients are…drumroll…coconut meat and coconut water.  That is all!  They are actually dehydrated coconut so they have a long shelf life (9 months according to Julian Bakery) and do not need to be refrigerated.  Now you are probably thinking exactly what I was thinking, I do not want my wraps to taste like coconut ewww!  Right?  The reviews suggested the coconut flavor is mild so I ordered just one pack of 7 wraps to test out.  I got mine at Amazon (because I had a gift card) but you can buy direct also.  The wraps arrived and I decided the fastest and easiest filling would be tuna salad.  Plus I knew if it didn’t work out I’d be happy to eat the tuna salad with a fork, or even some plantain chips.  Figured I was safe.  I opened the package and the first thing I noticed was the scent of coconut.  Smelled just like a bag of Bob’s Red Mill unsweetened flaked coconut….exactly.  I was worried, but willing to try.  The texture is a little stiff (compared to a wheat tortilla), but still very pliable.  Whipped up some tuna salad, put it on the wrap, wrapped the wrap around the tuna, and took a bite.  The verdict?  The flavor of the ingredients overpowers the coconut flavor of the wrap!  Thank goodness!  As long as you fill this with something flavorful you will be good to go.  The wrap held up perfectly to the last bite, it did not break or crack!  In the past I have used both lettuce or homemade bacon cups as a delivery devices, both of which work perfectly, but these wraps are a nice alternative.  As they are made from dehydrated coconut there is a slight crunchiness to the texture, so if you are expecting the same texture as a flour tortilla you will be disappointed.
