Instructions

  • First of all, preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  • Whisk the eggs and egg whites fluffy and continue to whisk with a hand mixer, preferably for a few minutes.
  • Add cream cheese and continue to whisk until the batter is smooth.
  • Mix salt, psyllium husk and coconut flour in a small bowl. Add the flour mix one spoon at a time into the batter and continue to whisk some more.
  • Let the batter sit for a few minutes or until it is thick like an American pancake batter. How fast it will swell depends on the brand of psyllium husk – some trial and error might be needed.
  • Bring out two baking sheets. Therefore place the parchment paper on each. Using a spatula, spread the batter thinly (but no more than ¼ inch thick) into 4–6 circles or 2 rectangles.
  • Bake on the upper rack for about 5 minutes or more, or until the tortilla turns a little brown around the edges. Carefully check the bottom side so that it doesn’t burn.
  • Serve with a filling of your choice, for example, tex-mix ground beef and salsa.

    I really wish someone would do a video of this recipe. I have tried a similar recipe from another site and it was a total disaster. I’m sure I’m doing something wrong. If I can get the right consistency, mine will still stick to the parchment paper and I end up with scrambled tortilla.
