Wheat Belly's flax wraps are excellent

Flax seed wraps take a minute to prepare and are cooked in microwave
A staple for lunch around our house now are ground flax seed wraps made using the recipe in the Wheat Belly book.
We have been following Wheat Belly author Dr. William Davis' advice to not eat any wheat. He recommends flax seed flour because flax is composed almost entirely of protein, not carbohydrates like other gluten-free products.
These wraps have a delicious, almost nutty, flavour. They take just a few minutes to prepare and cook in the microwave.
Here is the recipe:
3 tblsp of ground flax seed
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. onion powder
pinch of salt
one egg
1 tblsp water
1 tblsp of oil (he recommends flax but we've been using canola)
Mix together and pour onto an oiled plate or microwave pie pan
cook 2-3 minutes and let cool
I like these so much that I'm trying to work out how to cook them on a frying pan so I can continue making them when we go to camp. We do not have microwave ovens there. I haven't found the secret so far.
Incidentally, we have also been using Davis' recipe for cauliflower crust pizza. Everybody loves this as well but it must be eaten with a knife and fork. The crust doesn't hold together well enough to be picked up.
