Spicy Thai Flaxseed Wraps

Have you ever tried flaxseed wraps? If not, you are missing something! Today, I’m excited to introduce Spicy Thai Flaxseed Wraps! It’s not only delicious, it’s also healthy and requires just ground flaxseeds and water!

Before diving into this recipe, I wanted to let you know that I just released my first video! Have you seen it?! I wanted to get into food videos for a long time but never took the time actually to do it. Since you guys loved my vegan cultured butter, I thought it would be great for a first video. Plus, it tastes awesome and can replace regular butter everywhere! It spreads, melts, and bakes perfectly. So if you haven’t checked it out yet, you can find the video on Youtube or on the Vegan Cultured Butter recipe page. Hope you guys will like it! Stay tuned for more videos! 😉

Okay, now back to these wraps. What we have here are SUPER FLAVORFUL flaxseed wraps loaded with shredded carrots, marinated tofu, avocado, red bell peppers, and a sweet and spicy peanut butter coconut sauce. It’s packed with protein, fiber, flavor AND texture!

Please don’t get scared by the ingredient list. It’s mostly spices and ingredients you probably already have on hand. This recipe is easy and comes together in less than one hour!

Spicy Thai Flaxseed Wraps

Making the wraps is very easy and requires just ground flax seeds and water as the base. For more flavor, I also added spices to the wraps themselves. For a subtle Thai flavor, I went with ground ginger, coriander, and garlic.

You start by combining the ground flaxseeds with the spices and salt. If you don’t have ground flaxseeds on hand, you can make your own! Just grind golden flaxseeds in a blender until it looks like a fine meal.

The next step is to bring water to a boil, remove it from the heat, and immediately add the ground flaxseeds. Mix using a wooden spoon until it forms a ball. You will end up with a slightly sticky and soft dough.

Then you divide the dough into 6 pieces and roll out each into a thin round. I made my wraps the size of a taco, but you can definitely make them larger if you want. Cooking the wraps is very quick as it requires only about 1 minute of cooking per side.

The result is soft and pliable wraps with a garlicky flavor. If you are wondering, they do have a flaxseed flavor if you taste them alone, but you won’t be able to taste them once they are filled.

Now, onto the filling! Spinach for the greens, avocado for the healthy fats, tofu for more protein, red bell pepper and red cabbage for a crunch, and grated carrots for sweetness. Feel free to use whatever you have in your refrigerator. The filling is fully customizable! I would still recommend not omitting the carrots, as they provide sweetness and crunchiness.

Top with fresh cilantro or basil if you are not a fan of cilantro.

Obviously, the sauce is the star of this recipe (well, the flaxseed wraps are too!). Making the sauce consists of mixing together peanut butter with lime juice, coconut yogurt, maple syrup, soy sauce, and sriracha. It results in a sweet, salty, and spicy sauce. If you want, you can also add some freshly chopped ginger for more freshness.

Flavorful and garlicky wraps made from ground flaxseeds and filled with marinated tofu, avocado, grated carrots, spinach, and red bell peppers. Drizzled with a sweet and spicy peanut butter coconut sauce!
Prep Time : 30 minutes
Cook Time : 30 minutes
Total Time : 1 hour
Servings 6 Wraps
Calories 352 kcal


Flaxseed Wraps

  • 1 and 1/2 cup ground golden flaxseeds
  • 3/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup water

Marinated Tofu

Spicy Peanut Coconut Sauce

  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp coconut yogurt (or coconut milk)
  • 3 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sriracha (or more to taste)


  • 5-6 large spinach leaves
  • 3 carrots grated
  • 1 avocado sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper sliced
  • 1/2 cup shredded red cabbage
  • a handful of cilantro


Flaxseed Wraps

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground flaxseeds, garlic, ginger, coriander, and salt. Set aside.
  • Heat the water in a saucepan over medium heat. As soon as it’s boiling, remove from heat and add the ground flaxseeds to the saucepan. Using a wooden spoon, stir until it forms a ball. This step will take about 30 seconds. Let the dough cool for 2-3 minutes in the saucepan.
  • Divide the dough into 6 balls. If you want larger wraps, just make 4 balls. Place one ball on a silpat or parchment paper. Top with another sheet of parchment paper and roll out the dough into a 1/16-inch (2mm) thick round. Use a knife to cut the edges and make a perfect round.
  • Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, cook the flaxseed wrap for about 1 minute on each side. Repeat with the other wraps. Once all the wraps are cooked, stack them on a plate.

Marinated Tofu

  • Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
  • Cut the tofu into long strips (fries shape) and place them in a baking dish. In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, maple syrup, oil, and ground chili. Pour the sauce over the tofu strips and flip each tofu strip to make sure it’s well coated with the sauce.
  • Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool 10 minutes. In the meantime, prepare the peanut coconut sauce and chop the vegetables.

Spicy Peanut Coconut Sauce

  • Combine all the ingredients together in a bowl. Taste and adjust seasonings if needed, adding more sriracha for spiciness, maple syrup for sweetness, or coconut yogurt if the sauce is too thick.


  • Start by preparing the vegetables: finely grate the carrots and cut the avocado, red bell pepper, and red cabbage into thin slices.
  • Place one or two leaves of spinach on top of a wrap. Add about 1/4 cup grated carrots, 3 slices of avocado, one strip of tofu, a few strips of red bell pepper and red cabbage. Top with fresh cilantro and drizzle with about 3 tablespoons of the peanut coconut sauce. Fold the two opposite sides of the wrap over the filling and tie with a string. Repeat with the other wraps.
  • These wraps can be eaten cold or at room temperature. They will keep for up to 3 days in the refrigerator.


I can’t credit anyone for the flaxseed wrap recipe as I have no idea who came up with it first.

Wonderful presentation. I can’t imagine anyone seeing this post and not wanting to make these wraps. Well done. Thanks for the inspiration.

look marvellous
i try soon to make it !

This looks great! Could you also use almond flour for the wraps?

Sweet Heavens ! You are my discovery of the month ! So creative ! Perfect ! Thank you !

Hi, Thomas. I tried this recipe. I found the wraps to be delicate to work with. I had to devise a way to gently flip the prepared wrap into the hot pan without breaking it. Also in filling the wrap, one must take care, as they are no where near as pliable as a flour tortilla, for example. I found the sauce to be a bit too sweet for my taste, but, of course, this can be adjusted to one’s personal preferences. These wraps, fully loaded, provide a substantial meal. I made the mistake of preparing two of them for my meal, which was more than enough.

Yes, the water was boiling, and the flax formed a ball in the pan within a few seconds of stirring the mix. But, I admit that I didn’t grind the flaxseed any further than the way it came prepared from the store. It seemed pretty fine already, but maybe it could have been finer.

Is there something else I could substitute for flax seed? I am allergic to it.

I made this recipe the other day. And allthough I am not crazy about the taste of flaxseed, I ended up surrendering to these easy and fine pancakes.
They were so easy to make and with a half portion of 3 I was full. Thats a good thing !!! I did not have all the ingredient for filling and sauces, but even so they were good.
Today I have almost all ingrediences, so I will enjoy my lunch once more.

Thank you Thomas I am so grateful that I came across this flaxseed recipe. Cannot wait to surprise my Grandson. He simply loves peanut butter and wraps without flour.
Thanks Felicity

Love this! My mouth is watering. This will be dinner tonight!
I’ll let you know the results.

I would eat like 20 of these, they’re so good.
