In under 30 minutes you can prep and be eating these “wraps” filled with any of your favorite keto-friendly ingredients! </p> <h2>Remove Flour Insert Pork Rinds</h2> <p align="justify">Standard wheat flour is a no-no on keto, so finding replacements for our favorite recipes is a must. Enter the delicious pork rind! With no carbs, and a high protein content, they are perfect for creating flourless wraps. Are pork rinds Keto Diet approved? You bet! However, not all brands are created equal. When buying pork rinds, it’s important to check the label. Many of the flavored varieties contain not-so-keto-friendly ingredients. Avoid purchasing pork rinds with wheat or soy flour, sugar, MSG, and the worst of all—maltodextrin. </p> <h2>Protein Powerpack</h2> <p align="justify">The use of eggs in this recipe guarantee it’s packed with protein. With each wrap boasting 10 grams of the powerful macronutrient! Eggs aren’t a popular dietary staple for their versatility and taste alone—although those traits certainly help—ggs are also very healthy. Some people even refer to them as the original superfood. In a single egg, you’ll find a staggering number of vitamins and minerals that help your body function to the best of its ability. Eggs contain a known chemical compound called choline. Choline is integral to keeping brain cells healthy. Specifically by strengthening their membranes and helping them keep their structure. </p> </section> <hr class="divider-15 divider-thick mx-auto"> <section class="recipe"> <h2 itemprop="name" align="center">Almost Zero Carb Low Carb Wraps</h2> <div class="prep"> <span> <meta itemprop="prepTime" content="PT8M">Prep Time: 8 minutes</span> <span> <meta itemprop="cookTime" content="PT20M">Cooking Time: 20 minutes</span> <span> <meta itemprop="recipeYield">Makes: 12 Wraps </span> </div> <h3>Ingredients:</h3> <ul class="ingredients no-bullet"> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">4 ounces plain pork rinds, crushed </li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">⅛ teaspoon baking soda</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">¼ teaspoon salt, optional</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">4 ounces cream cheese, softened </li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">6 large, cold eggs***</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">½ cup water</li> </ul> <hr class="divider-50 divider-medium"> <h3>Instructions:</h3> <b>Food Processor Method: </b> <ol itemprop="recipeInstructions"> <li><p align="justify">Place the pork rinds in a food processor and blend until they become a fine powder. </p></li> <li><p align="justify">Add the baking soda and salt then give it a little pulse to mix.
