How to Make Coconut Flour Tortillas!

26 Apr

Happy Thursday Everyone!

Today I have an extra special treat for you 🙂  My hubby was nice enough to film me for a little tutorial on how to make coconut flour tortillas.   My lovely Sammy struggled with these so I thought I’d demonstrate!

Some notes:

  • The sound is shit because being the smarty that I am, I have the washing machine going in the background
  • My hair is jacked.
  • I HATE seeing myself on camera so you have to be gentle.
  • This recipe is from Paleo Comfort Foods.  It’s probably my favorite Paleo cookbook and has helped me make many a delicious meal, they deserve all the credit as I mention in the video.  It’s my hubby’s favorite too because he’s from Mississippi and can still enjoy some Southern favorites, Paleo style!.

Coconut Flour Tortillas:

8 egg whites

1/4 cup coconut flour

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 cup water

Coconut oil

1/4 tsp salt

Whisk all the ingredients together and preheat a nonstick pan with some coconut oil.  Pour about 3 tbsp of mixture into the pan at an angle and swirl around.  Once golden brown, flip.  Make sure that they’re really golden or they’ll rip.  These rock, they held up when they were loaded and taste ah-mazing.

Live to Thrive,

Lauren

    Hey! Thanks for the video! Do you think you could sub almond flour for coconut flour?

      Hi Kristy, thanks for watching/reading! I don’t think almond flour would be a good sub, it’s very heavy. The reason the coconut flour works so well is because it’s so light and fluffy. You could try and let me know though!! xooxx
