    It was just okay. Will make it again but I won't add the coconut flour which will change it to a lean & clean omelette instead of a quesadilla. The taste of the "tortilla" was okay but I didn't like the texture. It was very difficult to flip. It fell apart. Make sure your pan is super hot. - 5/18/19

    It is so meatly and less cheesy than the ones you purchase in the restaurants. I loved the coconut flour as it is indeed, healthier than the others. I presented it on a bed of lettuce. So good! - 6/29/17
