Low Carb Tortilla Wraps and Chalupa Shells

These Gluten Free Tortillas from Maria Emmerich are great as a soft tortilla or a flatbread. I especially love them with a thickened stew.

Ingredients

Almond Flour Tortillas

  • 1ΒΌ cup blanched Honeyville Almond Flour
  • 5 Tablespoons NOW psyllium husk powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup boiling water

Coconut Flour Tortillas

  • 3/4 cup coconut flour
  • 5 Tablespoons NOW psyllium husk powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup boiling water

Instructions

  • ***I use NOW brand psyllium powder and I regrind it to make sure it is as fine as can be.
  • Boil the water and keep it hot.
  • Grind your psyllium powder and measure 5 tablespoons into a medium bowl. Add the almond flour (or coconut flour), psyllium powder and salt. Mix together thoroughly with a whisk or a hand mixer.
  • Into a smaller bowl, crack the eggs and blend with a fork.
  • Pour the boiling water and have it ready.
  • Pour the eggs into the dry mixture and with the hand mixer, blend until just mixed in. Add the boiling water and mix again until a dough forms. It will be cool enough to handle almost immediately, but let it sit for a few minutes to give the psyllium time to absorb the water.
  • Heat a skillet or a large pancake griddle on the stove on medium high heat.
  • Shape the dough into a large ball and split in half. Roll each half into a short snake and divide each section into five pieces. Roll each piece into a ball.
  • Put a piece of dough between two oiled sheets of parchment paper and roll into a flat disk shape with a rolling pin or use a tortilla press to press it flat.
  • Spray the hot pan or griddle with oil. Cook the tortilla until it is browned on one side, then flip over and cook the other side.

Notes

These low carb tortillas and wraps stay soft and pliable. They are perfect for a wrap. They DO NOT fry crisp in oil. I have tried it.
