Simple recipe for making egg-free homemade wrap made from chia seeds and plantain.
Yesterday we blocked off a little bit of time to do some food prepping for me for when I go into labor. Being bakers at heart it was the perfect day as we got to be in the kitchen for a
few many hours. We love any opportunity to get the kitchen completely messy. We made some delicious goodies that we both cannot wait to eat! Now the only thing we needed was some Christmas carols to go along with all the baking?!? A little early for that I suppose? 😉
5 ingredient wrap recipe that is egg-less, grain-free and gluten-free with video tutorial.
We will share a little secret… this recipe was kind of a mistake that turned into a delicious wrap.
The original plan was to make a new cereal recipe but got a soft bread instead, which got us thinking, this could be a wrap if we tweak it a little. After some thought on what to try next we decided on using a chia gel and it worked! The chia gel is what makes the wrap rollable.

You could try using flax seeds over chia seeds to create your gel. Note we have not tried that yet so we are unsure of how it would come out. Also you can use any protein powder of your liking.
And for the plantain substitute–that is a hard one. You could try using a green unripe banana for it.
We hope you enjoyed making our 5 ingredient chia seed protein wrap with us today!
Wow, genius!!! I love it, so many chias in there!! This would make a delish crepe with chocolate hazelnut and strawberries
mmm sounds like a great idea!
I was going to your recipes section and hitting up the plantain section when I was hit with some nasty malware virus on your site. Just giving you a heads up. I’m commenting from my phone as I’m trying to fix my computer. I’ve been visiting for a year so it took me by surprise. It just changed the whole page to an Adobe Flash updater. Not even another window.
Aside from that, I’m addicted to the plantain brownies. Not malware viruses….but for sure the brownies.
Jennifer sorry to hear that, we aren’t sure why that happened. Sorry.
mmmm yumm! awesome recipe girls
I’m a little scared to try plantain because of my stomach issues, I can eat winter squashes, do you think they could work? Do plantains have a distinct flavor?
plantains do have a little bit of flavor but we don’t find it to be too strong. you could try a winter squash, it has different texture not as starchy so the final outcome of the wrap will be different, probably be more moist and wet compared to the plantain version.
Think these would dehydratexpect well instead of using oven?
Kay sure give it a go, it will probably take a few hours
I love this idea! The grocery store I went to just started carrying plantains– thanks for the inspiration! I can’t wait to try.
Looks amazing. Can’t wait to try. Where did you get your nonstick baking sheet?
I think from bed bath and beyond or target, can’t remember
Looks great, I’m excited to try it. Think coconut flour would work in place of the hemp protein powder?
not sure about that Sarah as coconut flour reacts differently compared to hemp protein.
I’ve just finished eating a flaxseed wrap made with egg and then googled this. I got so excited when I discovered this. However plantains are unheard of in Australia, so I’m going to try with zucchini well wrung out. Will let you know how I go!
I knew I could count on you to find another greast reci;e for the last plantain I had here! OMG, this is SOOOO amazing! I was not giving it so much credit, since I’ve always failed horribly at baking wraps haha — But really, I am SO HAPPY with the outcome! Thank you so much! BTW, I used pure pea protein powder for the hemp protein and it worked perfectly.
You girls are awesome!
Barbara so happy to hear this!!! Enjoy the wrap 🙂 Thank you so much for the support
I’m wondering if I can use something in place of the protein powder. Like maybe more flour of some sort, or extra chia seeds? I’m really looking forward to trying some of your recipes! Thank You!
Yes you can use any flour for the protein powder.
Just FYI for anyone else who doesn’t want to measure in tiny amounts, 12 tablespoons = 3/4 cup!
What about grinding up hemp seeds to make a powder? Would that be possible?
We honestly don’t think that would work as good, it provides a different consistency to the batter and not sure if it would turn out. But you could give it a try. We suggest trying a different “flour” or nut meal of choice.
I am so trying this wrap! =D This and your protein banana bread are the next recipes in my ‘to bake’ list.
Fun fact: in Spain plantains are called ‘male bananas’ XD Luckily they are not hard to find here =) I bought them at a regular supermarket.
Hi ladies! I never want to be the person who asks about substituting anything, but I cant have plantains or bananas, so wondered what you thought about trying an avocado? It would have a different texture for sure, but is usually helpful to bind foods together. Any thoughts?
If you want it to be bread like not sure avocado would work, maybe try sweet potato?
Hey, just made this wrap. Its excellent except that mine was thicker than a wrap. I would just have to spread it thinner next time. Love the consistency though.
Glad you enjoyed the recipe!
