So here’s the thing, even if you don’t consider yourself a pro in the kitchen, you can make tortillas. Seriously, it’s not complicated at all.

When I started following the keto diet, back in the stone ages, I pretty much needed a map to navigate my kitchen.
In other words, I was about as far from a cooking queen as one can get.

And you know what?

I’m still not the type of gal who passionately cooks on the daily, but eating? Well, eating has never been an issue.

Like most folks, I’m obsessed with Mexican food.

Chips and guac, tacos, burritos, nachos – they all speak to me in one way or another. But, after I started following the keto diet and lost 148 pounds, I started paying more attention to the ingredients in my favorite foods—specifically, carbs.

And whoa – when I realized how many were in one traditional tortilla, I felt gut-punched.

Are Tortillas Keto-Friendly?

Chances are you haven’t taken a look at the tiny little labels on your go-to tortillas, but I have, and it’s not pretty.

Corn tortillas have around 12 net carbs each – and wheat tortillas, which sound like they should be healthier are even worse coming in at 14 net carbs each.

But there is good news. You can make adjustments to the ingredients that drive up the carbs and come out sitting pretty on the other side with a keto-friendly, healthier Almond Flour Tortilla Recipe.

Ingredients

We’re combining two popular low carb flours here – blanched almond flour and coconut flour. Blanched almond flour works way better than almond meal, but it is on the costly side, so we’re mixing in some coconut flour to make it stretch and for flavor

You’ll also need xanthan gum to bind and thicken – and this one is truly a non-negotiable ingredient. I can’t find anything else that thickens and binds (and keeps it low carb) like xanthan gum.

We’re also going to add a tiny bit of baking powder – if you’re gluten-free, be sure to use a compliant brand.

Oh, and one more key ingredient is apple cider vinegar. We’re using a little ACV to help the dough develop. If you don’t have any, do not worry – it is not a deal-breaker, but it helps.

What You Need To Make Tortillas

Typically special equipment upsets me.

I don’t feel like it’s fair when bloggers tell you that you NEED to have a $400 KitchenAid mixer to create the most fabulous recipe for XYZ when you can get the job done with a hand mixer or an old school mixing bowl and a spoon.

But I’ve found when it comes to baking with almond flour consistency counts—properly combining the ingredients matters. So I do highly recommend you use a food processor.

You’ll also need a rolling pin – but if you don’t have one, you can use oh I don’t know a can of soup or a drumstick or anything round that’ll help you flatten out the dough.

Oh, and you need wax paper too.

Description

The best homemade keto almond flour tortilla recipe! Make delicious low carb, gluten-free tortillas with 6 simple ingredients, 2.8 net carbs and 3 WW points!

Ingredients

3/4 cup + 1 tablespoon (98 grams) Blanched Almond Flour

4 tablespoons (28 grams) Coconut Flour

1 Egg (at room temperature)

1 teaspoon (4 grams) Xanthan Gum

1 teaspoon Baking Powder

1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt

2 teaspoons Apple Cider Vinegar

2 to 4 tablespoons warm water

Instructions

  • Combine the almond flour, coconut flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, salt, egg and 2 tablespoons of water, and 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar in a food processor and press pulse.
  • If the dough appears dry, you can add in water – a tablespoon at a time and pulse until it gets a dough-like consistency
  • Wrap dough in saran wrap and place it in the refrigerator for at least an hour or up to four days. Gluten-free flours tend to perform better after they chill.
  • When you are ready to roll – literally – get out your wax paper and separate the dough into 8 sections. Then roll each part into a ball and then use a rolling pin to flatten. Separate each with parchment paper, so they don’t stick.
  • Heat a cast-iron or nonstick skillet to medium and cook each tortilla for around 45 seconds per side.

Notes

  • You can store the dough (wrapped in saran wrap) in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Cooked tortillas need to be stored in an airtight container or ziplock bag in the fridge.
  • To Freeze: Place tortillas in a ziplock bag or airtight container. Use wax paper to separate each one, so they don’t stick together! Freeze for up to 3 months.
