Gluten Free, Vegan Tortillas

I stumbled upon a wonderful recipe for gluten free, vegan tortillas. I tried it; and it is fabulous! This recipe is from Megan at I use this recipe for my Breakfast Tacos  and everytime we want burritos. It works, the tortillas are wonderful, this recipe is a must try!! Thanks, Megan!!
  • 1 1/2 cups blanched almond flour, gently packed
  • 1/2 cup tapioca starch
  • 2 tablespoons arrowroot starch
  • 2 tablespoons psyllium husk powder
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4-1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil (or oil of your choice)
  • 1/2-3/4 cup warm water
  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the blanched almond flour, tapioca starch, arrowroot starch, psyllium husk powder, coconut flour, baking powder, and sea salt.
  2. Stir in the olive oil and then slowly pour 1/2 cup of warm water into the flour mixture and stir until combined.
  3. Let the dough rest for 5 minutes to allow the psyllium husk powder and coconut flour time to expand and absorb the liquid.
  4. If the dough is still dry and crumbly, continue to add additional warm water, a tablespoon at a time, until the dough easily comes together to form a workable dough.
  5. Form the dough into 8 even balls and place them back in the mixing bowl; cover with a damp paper towel to prevent the dough from drying out.
  6. Preheat a lightly oiled 10-12 inch cast iron skillet over medium-high heat.
  7. Roll a dough ball between 2 pieces of parchment paper into a round tortilla, as thin as you can get it (about the thickness of a nickel), about 6-7 inches in diameter.
  8. Peel off the top layer of parchment paper and place the tortilla, dough side down, into the hot skillet. Within a few seconds, you should be able to gently peel off the remaining piece of parchment paper. Cook until bubbly and golden. Flip and continue to cook until bubbly and golden on the other side (Be careful not to overcook. If the tortillas start to burn, beyond normal charring like you see in the picture, reduce heat to medium.).
  9. Place the cooked tortillas on a plate between layers of paper towels (or a clean kitchen towel). Some of the tortillas might come out of the skillet somewhat crispy, but as they sit on top of each other, between the layers of paper towels, the warm moist heat makes them pliable and soft.
  10. Continue rolling and cooking the remaining dough.
