Instructions how to make keto tortillas
- Place the flax seeds, coconut flour, almond flour and psyllium husks into a bowl.
- For best results make sure you use whole psyllium husks. Using whole husks makes the tortillas more compact and flexible.
- Add any of your favorite seasonings.
- Add the ground chia seeds. To grind them, use a blender and pulse until powdered.
- Pour in the water and mix until well combined using your hands. If needed, add a few more tablespoons of water. Be careful not to use too much, or the dough will get too sticky and difficult to roll.
- Let the dough rest in the fridge or on the kitchen counter for up to an hour.
- Remove from the fridge and cut the dough into 6 equal pieces.
- Place a piece of the dough between two pieces of baking paper and roll out until the dough is very thin.
- Alternatively, use a nonstick silicon covered roller and a silicon mat.
- Use an 8-inch lid or bowl to cut out the tortillas.
- Repeat with the remaining dough and the cut off until you get 10 tortillas. If you have any dough left, use it for making nachos.
- Preheat a heavy-bottom pan greased with just 1 teaspoon of ghee or lard.
- Therefore, place the tortillas, one at a time, on top of the hot pan and cook over a medium heat on one side for 1-2 minutes until lightly browned.
- Turn on the other side and cook for 30-60 more seconds.
Note: Don’t overcook or the tortillas will become too crispy and will lose their flexibility.
- Grease more when needed and repeat for the rest of the tortillas.
