Instructions how to make keto tortillas

  • Place together the flax seeds, coconut flour, almond flour and psyllium husks into a bowl.
  • For best results make sure you use whole psyllium husks. Using whole husks makes the tortillas more compact and flexible.
  • Add any of your favorite seasonings or you can make it without seasoning.
  • Add the ground chia seeds. To grind them, use a blender and pulse until powdered.
  • Pour in the water and mix until well combined using your hands. If needed, add a few more tablespoons of water. Be careful with the water. If you use too much water, the dough will get too sticky and difficult to roll.
  • Let the dough rest in the fridge up to an hour.
  • Remove from the fridge
  • Cut the dough into 8 equal pieces.
  • Place a piece of the dough between two pieces of baking paper
  • Roll out until the dough is very thin. Alternatively, you can use a nonstick silicon covered roller and a silicon mat.
  • Use an 8-inch lid or bowl to cut out the tortillas.

How to make keto tortillas

  • Repeat with the remaining dough. You should the cut off until you get 10 tortillas. If you have any dough left, use it for making nachos.
  • Preheat a heavy-bottom pan greased with just 1 teaspoon of oil or ghee or lard.
  • Therefore, place the tortillas, one at a time, on top of the hot pan.
  • Cook over a medium heat on one side for 1-2 minutes until lightly browned.
  • Turn on the other side and cook for 1/2 – 1 minutes more.

Note: Be careful, if you overcook them the tortillas will become too crispy and will lose their flexibility.

  • Grease more when needed and repeat for the rest of the tortillas.

    Why flax and chia? I thought they served pretty much the same purpose. Could all chia be used in place of the flax? Really want to make these but don’t want to buy more ingredients…

      Yes, you are right. They are full of fibers. You can add more chia instead of flax. Chia seeds are good as a thickening agent.

          You can freeze the cooked tortillas. But you can cut the dough into the desired number of servings, place in a freezer bags and freeze.
