I’ve attempted making quesadilla’s paleo style more times than I care to remember. Some of them were almost there but the tortillas themselves never really won me over. I love me some coconut crepes and they make for great wraps for fajita’s but as quesadilla’s they didn’t quite crisp up in the desired manner and they were a little to fragile for picking up once they hit the pan for a second round!

Then I spotted these incredible looking extremely versatile keto friendly wraps and just had to give them a whirl! The first round I followed the recipe exactly but the dough was far too dry. I went with it and rolled and cooked them up but they weren’t at all pliable. I increased the liquid in the second round and they worked out perfectly!!! DEEEE…LIGHTED!

I knew what I was having for breakfast the next morning!

I was even more delighted that they were perfectly fresh the next morning (and the one I held on too was perfect two days later having been kept in the fridge on a plate covered in clingfilm/saran wrap!).

Breakfast quesadilla me! Filled with scrambled egg, spinach, leftover and the last of my harissa…sad face…but there was one big happy one when I devoured these wedges on Sunday morning! Quite the late breakfast/brunch/lunch to put me in top form going to work!

Topped with a quick guacamole and a the VERY LAST of the harissa…divine! Such a simple breakfast once you have your wraps ready to go! I’m only sorry I didn’t make more of them! They crisped up beautifully in the pan and I’m super keen to find out if they’ll hold up baked in sauce for paleo enchiladas; of course I will report back!

I devoured the last one before an evening strongman class toasted in a pan with coconut oil and loaded with almond butter…because I am an almond butter addict…clearly!

What’s your favourite quesadilla filling? Obviously I’m thinking all things sans cheese…maybe some dairy free queso will have to happen!

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Keywords: fry breakfast snack entree gluten-free grain free low-carb paleo soy-free sugar-free flax seeds egg harrissa

Ingredients (Serves 1- 2)

Quick Guacamole

  • 1/2 a large ripe avocado mashed
  • Dash of lime juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Coriander and Lime wedges to serve


Whisk together eggs with salt and pepper.

Place in a pot with melted ghee over a low to medium heat. Whisk after a minute to break up the curds..cook for 1-2 minutes more; remove from the heat while still not fully set!

Stir through chopped spinach.

Spread each tortilla with a tbsp of the harissa on one side. Place half the egg mixture in to each and fold over.

Place in a hot pan with melted ghee and cook each one (I prefer to do them one at a time but if you have a big pan you could cook them side by side!), for 2-3 minute per side or until lightly browned and crisp.

Serve immediately sliced in half (to make four wedges!) topped with quick guacamole and a little extra dollop of harissa on top!
