I received free samples of Sabra Spreads! Spreads mentioned in this post. By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by Sabra and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.

When you’re gluten-free, you get creative with your carb products. When I first went gluten-free, they didn’t have all of the awesome replacements they do now (much like when I went vegan). When it comes to wraps, I normally just stick to plain, boring lettuce wraps. But I was recently contacted by Sabra to try some samples and recreate a sandwich-like recipe, I wanted to up my A-game. I tracked down some gluten-free, vegan wraps and was able to make a worthy recipe!

All opinions are my own. And my opinion is that this hummus spread is dee-licious! I was lucky enough to try two flavours: sea salt & cracked pepper & garlic herb. I actually prefer the taste of the garlic herb one, BUT when I tried the sea salt & cracked pepper I was inspired to make a vegan BLT wrap.

I like that the spread comes in a convenient squeeze bottle, making it easy and fun to use. It’ll make sandwiches healthier too as I normally use vegan mayo and the spread has 75% less fat! It even has more fibre and protein too – win win!

BLT Wrap
2 wraps of your choice (I used gluten-free spinach ones)
2-4 tbsp of Sabra sea salt & cracked pepper hummus spread (I used 2 tbsp per wrap)
1 small tomato, sliced
1 persian cucumber, sliced lengthwise
2 lettuce leaves, chopped
2-4 tbsp of coconut bacon (I used 2 tbsp per wrap) **see recipe below

Spread 1 tbsp of hummus spread evenly on a wrap. Layer on the cucumber, tomato, lettuce and the coconut bacon, squirt another tbsp of the hummus. Enjoy open faced or wrapped.

Coconut Bacon
1/2 cup of thickly shredded, unsweetened coconut
1 tbsp of tomato paste
1 tbsp of coconut aminos
1 tsp of blackstrap molasses (maple syrup works if you don’t have molasses)
1 tsp of water
a few dashes of liquid smoke
a sprinkle of dried garlic

Preheat toaster oven to 300. Mix all of the ingredients (except the coconut) into a bowl and then add the shredded coconut and mix until well coated. Spread in a single layer on a foil lined tray and bake for 10 minutes.

  1. Yummy! That coconut bacon sounds fabulous. Matt used to love BLTs so I’m going to need to make this for him now that he doesn’t eat meat anymore.

    PS I just told showed him your wrap and he’s all excited to have it this weekend (or as soon as I get some wraps).

    1. Oh I love coconut bacon. Tempeh bacon is better in my opinion, but I can’t have soy often. If Matt is ok with tempeh, he would really love tempeh bacon (Terry does!).
      Aw yay =) Terry and I want to try out your sandwich, but Whole Foods was out of Beyond Meat Chickin’. We’re going to try another store!

  2. I made my first coconut bacon yesterday. I’ve had it before, but never made it. It was easy and tasty!

    I have never seen hummus in a squeezy bottle, but I want some!

    1. And you can tolerate coconut bacon ok? I know coconut oil and such isn’t great for you. It is pretty good and is something easy to make to add a good flavour.
      Squeezy bottle hummus is awesome!!

  3. I love a good vegan BLT but never had it in a wrap, this sounds really good, would love it in my lunch box. I’ve heard of sabra, but don’t think ive seen it local to me in the Wales, UK – will have to look out for it you never know and good luck.

    1. I’ll be honest Shaheen – I picked a wrap because the gluten-free, vegan bread options aren’t great ;p The wrap does the trick though. Sabra is super popular in the States & Canada, it may not be in the UK – I’m sure it will make it’s way out there.

  4. Love coconut bacon! Great timing, my oldest who isn’t a big fan of tomatoes (likes tomatoes in things just not slices or baby tomatoes) was craving a BLT this week. I kept asking really you don’t like tomatoes, and she said yes she even wanted the tomatoes.
    Sorry I didn’t get chance to link up my post yet hubby just flew back home and it was a very busy crazy day. Thank you for including my Maca Me Crazy Cashew Crunch Popcorn, I hope you enjoy it if you make it. Also I have a great recipe for Halloween I just posted today! I’ll have to get it linked up.
    Happy Vegan Friday!

    1. Haha too funny – hopefully her tastebuds will appreciate tomatoes. I can’t imagine sliced tomato on sammies or cute baby tomatoes in salad.
      No worries Sarah! We leave our linky party up until end of day Tuesday as we know people have hectic weekends =)
      I cannot wait to make your popcorn!! It sounds so good. My goal is to catch up on blogging this weekend – knowing your halloween recipe is waiting for me will keep me motivated! Have a great weekend girl!
