Egg White Wraps

A gluten-free keto wrap made out of eggs

With just two ingredients, you can make these delicious zero-carb egg white wraps to replace tortillas in any of your favorite recipes!

Tortillas are perfect for holding all sorts of delicious food together, but with 30 grams of carbs or more per wrap, they just don’t have a place in a keto or low carb diet. These egg white wraps look just like real tortillas but without any of the carbs! They’re an Egglife wrap copycat, just more economical because they are cheaper to make than the store bought wraps.

With only two ingredients and zero carbs, this recipe is the perfect budget-friendly choice for replacing tortillas and other wraps or noodles. Plus, you can make them as big as you want, depending on the size of your skillet. I use a medium-sized, 8-inch skillet, but you can use a 10-inch skillet for burrito-sized wraps or a small 6-inch skillet for small wraps that would be perfect for tacos or small quesadillas.

Use these keto wraps to make enchiladas, sandwich wraps, or even use as noodles in keto lasagna. If you’re sticking to breakfast, make a breakfast taco by adding more eggs, bacon, and cheese as a filling.

How to make egg white wraps

  1. Mix egg whites and protein powder or xanthan gum in a blender until foamy.
  2. Pour ⅓ cup of the mixture into a non-stick skillet. Swirl the pan to coat an even layer around the bottom of the skillet
  3. Cook the keto egg wrap for 1-2 minutes each side.
  4. Remove the wrap from the skillet and repeat two more times with the remaining egg mixture.

Key ingredients & substitutions

  • Egg whites – You can use liquid egg whites or remove the yolks yourself. If using eggs, save the yolks to add to scrambled eggs or some homemade mayonnaise to go in your wrap.
  • Protein powder – Any unsweetened, unflavored low-carb protein powder will work. This protein powder is zero carbs.
  • Xanthan gum – In this egg white wrap recipe, either protein powder or xanthan gum can be used as a thickener and for stability. Using xanthan gum is a more affordable option.

What makes this recipe different?

  • Other recipes for egg wraps use almond flour to add thickness and stability. Using almond flour adds too many extra unnecessary carbohydrates to the recipe.
  • Some people are sensitive to xanthan gum and could experience stomach upset, gas, and bloating from this ingredient. In that case, use protein powder to make this egg white wrap recipe is zero carbs, nut-free, and xanthan gum free.
  • Unlike the Egglife Egg White Wraps, making your own wraps is less expensive. 

How to use egg white wraps

Filling ideas

If you are making a sandwich wrap using your homemade egg wraps, try adding these inside:

  • Avocado, mozzarella, pesto – Spread 1 tablespoon of pesto onto the egg white wrap. Then top with 1/4 sliced avocado, a roasted red pepper and a few slices of mozzarella cheese. Add fresh basil for extra flavor. Roll up and enjoy.
  • Bacon, lettuce, tomato – For a simple BLT wrap, spread a tablespoon of mayonnaise on the egg wrap. Top with green lettuce, sliced tomato and a couple strips of cooked, crispy bacon. Roll up and enjoy.
  • Spicy peanut chicken – Mix 1 tablespoon peanut butter with 1 teaspoon grated ginger, 1/4 teaspoon chili flakes, 1 teaspoon sesame oil and a squeeze of lime juice. Stir in cooked shredded chicken. Add to wrap along with shredded carrot, lettuce and julienned cucumber. Roll up and eat.
  • Breakfast wrap – For a quick on the go breakfast, spread on butter, bacon or sausage, cheddar cheese and scrambled eggs. Roll the wrap and enjoy.

Best way to roll an egg wrap

If using your egg wraps as a sandwich wrap, it’s best to make them larger using an 8-10″ skillet. This may require you doubling or tripling the recipe, depending on how many egg wraps you want to make.

To perfectly roll a wrap:

  1. Place the egg wrap on a piece of parchment paper.
  2. Add any sauce or spreads.
  3. Top with ingredients to the center of the wrap.
  4. Roll using the parchment paper to tightly hold the wrap together without breaking.

Storage information & Meal prep instructions

These wraps are super quick and simple to make ahead, so you can use them all week long.

After making your wraps, place them on a plate to cool. To store the egg white wraps, place a parchment circle sheet or wax paper in between each wrap. Store them in a Ziploc bag in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Freezing is not recommended.
