Equipment

  • Non-Stick Skillet
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Rolling Pin

Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Flour
  • 2 Tbsp. Whole Psyllium Husk
  • 1 Cup Water
  • 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 1/4 Tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1/4 Tsp. Salt

Instructions
 

  • Mix the flour and psyllium together in a bowl. Stir in the water, olive oil, and baking powder to create the dough. Knead thoroughly.
  • Add salt. If the dough is sticky, add a touch of psyllium husk and knead for another 30 seconds.
  • Set aside for 10 minutes, until the dough is soft and elastic. If you are feeling adventurous, sprinkle in some flax seeds.  
  • Flatten the dough. If you are worried about it sticking to your rolling pin, place it between two pieces of parchment paper.
  • Cut the dough into circles of roughly equal size. Depending on the size of your tortillas, you may have to re-combine and flatten the dough several times.   
  • Cook the tortillas in a non-stick skillet with a dash of olive oil. Spread the oil evenly or the tortillas might get scorched. Fry the tortillas the first side for 3-4 minutes. Then flip, and fry the second for 1-2. 
  • Serve immediatey or store for later.

Notes

Coconut flour contains 3 times more fiber than whole-wheat flour and 10 times more than all-purpose flour.
