Ingredients

Instructions

  • Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
    Add the egg whites and mix well.
  • Pour the boiling water a little at a time over the dough and mix with a silicone spatula.
    The psyllium will absorb the water as you mix.
    Once completely mixed, let the dough sit for 5 minutes.
  • Separate the dough into 8 balls.
  • Place one ball at a time over a piece of parchment paper and cover with another piece of parchment paper.
    Place your heaviest skillet or frying pan ( I used a Lodge cast iron skillet) over the dough ball and press with your weight.  You can also twist the skillet, once pressed, left to right like a steering wheel, to expand the dough even more.
    This will create thin tortillas, but they will thicken a bit once cooked.
  • Repeat this step with the 7 other dough balls until you have 7 more tortillas.
  • Heat some oil in a frying pan or skillet, and place the tortillas inside, one at a time.  Cook on each side for 20-40 seconds on medium heat, until the crust becomes golden brown.
  • Once cooked, transfer to a plate to let them cool.
    You can then use them as you wish.

Notes

If you want to use coconut flour instead of almond flour, please use this coconut flour tortilla recipe. It's the same recipe, but was adapted for coconut flour.

The nutritional information is for ONE TORTILLA.

These can be stored in the fridge for about a week. 
You can also freeze them.  Thaw them first and then microwave them a few seconds, or reheat them in a frying pan.
Important Notes:
  • You cannot substitute the psyllium husk powder. You absolutely need it.
  • Do not leave out the egg whites or boiling water.
  • You can use any other type of nut flour.  You cannot use coconut flour.
  • Make sure you leave the dough after adding the boiling water to sit for a few minutes before pressing them.
