Low Carb Gluten Free Tortillas
Do you miss tortillas? Then check out this simple low carb tortilla recipe that is so easy to make. You just mix the ingredients and cook!
I miss tortillas and all the things you can make out of tortillas! I love making chicken quesadillas. I love eating tortilla chips (click here if you want to try my low carb tortilla chip recipe).
I have tried various recipes for making homemade low carb tortillas but each of them has their faults. Some turn out too cracker like and you can’t actually wrap them like a tortilla.
These tortillas are adapted from Mark’s Daily Apple recipe for Primal Tex-Mex Tortillas. The tortillas taste slightly like a crepe so I added a variety of flours to stiffen the wrap and make it more tortilla-like.
What I like most about this recipe is its simplicity. There is no dough to make and roll out. You just mix the ingredients together and cook!
These are keto-friendly tortillas because there are no starches used in the batter. I do have a fantastic, almost like the real deal Paleo tortillas recipe in my cookbook, Ditch the Wheat, that contains some starchy flour but the results are amazing!
Low Carb Tortilla Ingredients
- a few large eggs
- extra virgin olive oil
- coconut flour
- almond flour
- ground flax seed
- baking powder
How to Make Low Carb Tortillas
Step 1: Combine the Wet Ingredients. In a bowl whisk together water, eggs, and olive oil.
Step 2: Combine the Dry Ingredients. In a separate bowl mix together coconut flour, almond flour, flax seed, and baking powder.
Step 3: Combine the Wet & Dry Ingredients. Mix the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients. Whisking as you pour so clumps don’t form.
Step 4: Cook Each Tortilla. In a medium to large skillet, heat several tablespoons of olive oil over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, pour some of the batter into the skillet, tilting the pan so the batter spreads thinly. Cook the batter for a few minutes or until it is slightly “toasted” looking. Flip the tortilla and fry for a few more minutes.
Help! My Low Carb Tortillas Don’t Wrap Like Regular Tortillas
Since we’re using low carb flours to create these tortillas they are not as bendable as regular tortillas. Please remember they are crepe-like since we used a batter to make them.
Can I Freeze Low Carb Tortillas?
Yes! If you want to make a big batch of them you could separate each tortilla by putting wax paper or parchment paper between them and then stack them and place them in a ziplock bag and place in the freezer.
