Ingredients

Instructions

  • Mix the coconut flour, psyllium husk powder, baking powder, salt, garlic powder, onion powder and cumin in a bowl.
    Add the eggs and mix as best as you can. It will look like small dough pebbles.
  • Pour the boiling water ½ cup (120ml) at a time over the dough and mix with a silicone spatula.
    The psyllium and coconut flour will absorb the water as you mix.
    Once completely mixed, let the dough sit for a couple of minutes as it's pretty hot to handle.
  • Separate the dough into 10 balls with your hands. Each ball weighed 75g/2.6 oz for me.
  • TORTILLA PRESS METHOD
    Line the tortilla press with saran wrap. Place a piece of dough in the middle of the tortilla press and press to flatten. Set aside but make sure to add a piece of parchment paper or saran wrap between each tortilla so that they don't stick to one another.
  • CAST IRON METHOD
    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 9 other dough balls until you have 9 more tortillas.
  • ROLLING PIN METHOD
    Place one ball at a time over a piece of parchment paper and cover with another piece of parchment paper.
    Roll out as best as you can until your have a large tortilla circle. Repeat this step for the rest of the balls.
  • Heat some oil in a frying pan or skillet, and place the tortillas inside, one at a time.  Cook on each side for 30-60 seconds on medium heat, until the crust becomes golden brown. The tortillas will fluff quite high, but will flatten again once cooled.
  • Once cooked, transfer to a plate to let them cool.
    You can then use them as you wish.

Notes

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 eggs or boiling water.
  • Make sure you leave the dough for a few minutes after adding the boiling water to sit before rolling them out.
