What Are Crepini Egg Thins and Why Does the Keto Community Love Them?
People who follow a keto diet are always trying to find a substitute for the normally carb-heavy meals they love. Remember the chaffle (a keto waffle) made with cheese and eggs to keep it keto-friendly and still “bready” for breakfast? Or the 90-second keto bread that was perfect for BLT sandwiches? Or the low-carb bread from ALDI? Needless to say, I’m always impressed with the creativity of the keto community.
Well, there’s a new keto-friendly product that is blowing up right now that we think you should know about. Made with eggs and cauliflower, Egg Thins are a low-carb, low-sugar wrap that is reminiscent of a tortilla or a crepe. And best of all? You can buy them at Costco!
Wait, What Is an Egg Thin?
These tortilla-like crepes are perfect for low-carb sandwiches or for making delicious roll-ups for a snack. They have eight calories a serving and zero carbs. Egg Thins are gluten-free as well as Paleo- and keto-friendly.
They are also sugar-free, so they won’t elevate blood sugar. And you get six in each pack. Since they are made with cauliflower and eggs, they are higher in protein and fiber, so you’re getting solid nutrition in each one for very few calories.
You can find them at Costco in the deli section at Costco for 7.89 for 24 wraps.
How Should I Use Them?
People are using them as tortillas for fajitas, wraps, and breakfast sandwiches. A quick look on Instagram shows that people are also using them as the base for mini pizzas (which, brilliant).
If you want to experiment with them in the kitchen, you should note that there are some complaints. One commenter on Reddit said, “I tried these out recently. Not unpleasant, but not especially pleasant or tortillaish either. (They claim to be crepes and are more crepe-like in texture, but not as delicate or rich.) Definitely reasonably sturdy, which is nice. I think they might be best focused for applications where they add some chewiness, but don’t dominate the taste on your tongue.”
Other people, like the above Instagrammer, disagree, and say that Egg Thins are great as a substitute for tortillas. I’ve also heard other people use the wraps for making sweet treats with some sugar-free syrup — they’ll roll them up and dip them in sugar-free syrup as is. Yum! Or some suggest wrapping with cheese. “Hmmm maybe roll up some laughing cow and diced strawberries inside?” suggested one Reddit user.
Basically, give them a shot if you want a low-carb, low-cal, and sugar-free wrap substitute. You may love them!
