Gluten Free Tortillas using Coconut Flour

There are so many wonderful uses for coconut flour, and I have started to explore them further as I have found that I should not have wheat flour.  This really limits my choices for eating so here my attempts at expanding my variety.

Please let me know what you think or what you are doing with coconut flour.

Coconut Flour Tortillas using Coconut Flour

 

  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 8 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup water
  • pinch of salt
  • coconut oil

Mix all ingredients in bowl and set it aside for 5 minutes to thicken and hydrate.

Once pan or griddle is heated, LIGHTLY grease it with coconut oil (too much will make them crispy and bubbly).

Pour slightly less than 1/4 cup of batter into middle of griddle, and smooth out, forming a nice circle (pouring in a spiral pattern may help). Once the edges just start to turn brown (about 1-2 minutes, but be sure to watch it closely), flip the tortilla with a spatula and cook for another 1-2 minutes.

Transfer cooked tortillas to a plate with another plate on top, a tortilla warmer, or a folded towel to keep warm.

Serve them with your favorite fixings for tacos, burritos, or as fajitas.
