I love sandwiches. In fact, I think I began my love of sandwiches when I was age 4 or so and I learned that spooning Spaghetti-Os over a slice of Wonder Bread and topping the slurpy mound with another slice of that soft-as-a-cloud bread made a sandwich. I ate Spaghetti-Os sandwiches well into my adulthood.
Over the years I experimented and created sandwiches with all kinds of fillings – some of which worked and some that are best left forgotten. My question, long before Good Mythical Morning (warning, don’t watch if you gag easily) asked the “Will it ___?” question, was does it sandwich? And the answer is a resounding, NO. Not everything sandwiches.
Once I started low carbing I totally missed grabbing something and putting it in a sandwich for a quick way to handle hunger during my chaotic days. It’s just not the same wrapping something in lettuce leaves — like don’t ever try it with peanut butter.
Well, once I got this wrap perfected I was ecstatic! The wrap is sturdy enough to hold all kinds of fillings without tearing and it only takes a couple of minutes to make. Plus it doesn’t get soggy! All of that made it a win as far as I was concerned!
I’ll give you my list of fillings in the recipe but I’m not adding them to the nutrition information so that you know exactly how many carbs the low carb sandwich wraps have.

I?m very curious to try this recipe. My family is more Paleo than keto so my knowledge is not great about keto. Would I be able to use cheddar instead of mozzarella or does it no have the same outcome?
Where do you find hemp hearts? That is a new one for me.
I get them at Costco but Amazon has them too
