When my Friends at Bobs Red Mill Trinidad asked me to create a recipe using Arrowroot, I must admit I was stumped for a second. Mostly I use Arrowroot to bind my burgers, thicken my soups and as a flour in my blends, but never as the main ingredient.
So what’s a girl to do!?!? Troll Pinterest! (lol…my place of inspiration)
Sigh…But that didn’t help much and I had to go back to my recipe drawing board and think again. I played around with different things and came up with a few ideas until it hit me….why not make Arrowroot Coconut Wraps instead of Tapioca Coconut Wraps.
Arrowroot and Tapioca are similar in that they are both starches, used in GF baking to help achieve lightness in some recipes. Although they have different properties, they are similar enough that they work well…with a few adjustments of course. With the wraps they gave them a soft, delicate and delicious flavour that the entire family loved! (So much so that they preferred them to the Tapioca ones.)
The best part is that the recipe is super simple, and they freeze well, which makes them perfect for dinner, lunch or breakfast in a hurry.
(They worked great for my new recipe in the works for homemade GF Mushroom & Pepper Chicken Quesadillas!) Here’s a sneak peak:
So here it is….I really hope you enjoy them as much as we did!
Makes 5-6, 8″ wraps
- 1 cup Arrowroot flour
- 1/2 cup Coconut Flour
- 2 Free Range Eggs
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 – 1 1/4 cups water
- 1/2 tsp guar gum (optional)
- In a bowl combine all the dry ingredients:
- In another bowl. Crack the two eggs then add them to the dry ingredients.
- Whisk together, while slowly adding 1 cup water.
- Until a batter forms. If the batter is too thick, add the extra 1/4 cup of water until it reaches consistency.
- Pour batter onto a hot grill. (I used an electric grill, heated to 375 F) Using a 1/2 cup measure, pour batter onto the grill.
- Using a spatula or ladle, spread the batter thinly, to create a circle about 11 – 12″ (the wraps shrink as they cook, so if you would like bigger wraps, use more batter and make a bigger circle)
- Cook the wraps for about 3-4 minutes on each side, until they are cooked and golden on both sides.
- Continue until all the batter is finished.
- Finally add your favorite filling and enjoy!!!
