Yields – 4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs
  • 4 eggs white
  • 12 oz cream cheese
  • 2-3 teaspoons of ground psyllium husk/ powder
  • 2 spoons coconut flour
  • 1 tsp salt

Instructions on how to make low-carb tortillas

  • First of all, preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  • Whisk the eggs and egg whites fluffy and continue to whisk with a hand mixer, preferably for a few minutes.
  • Add cream cheese and continue to whisk until the batter is smooth.
  • Mix salt, psyllium husk and coconut flour in a small bowl. Add the flour mix one spoon at a time into the batter and continue to whisk some more.
  • Let the batter sit for a few minutes or until it is thick like an American pancake batter. How fast it will swell depends on the brand of psyllium husk.
  • Bring out two baking sheets. Therefore place the parchment paper on each. Using a spatula, spread the batter thinly (but no more than ¼ inch thick)
  • Bake on the upper rack for about 5 minutes or more, or until the tortilla turns a little brown around the edges. Carefully check the bottom side so that it doesn’t burn.
  • Serve with a filling of your choice, for example, tex-mix ground beef and salsa.
