Ingredients

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg room temperature
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tbsp apple cider vinegar

Instructions

  • Whisk together the almond flour, coconut flour, salt, xanthan gum, and baking powder until well combined.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, water, olive oil, and apple cider vinegar.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix to form a dough.
  • Remove and shape into a ball. Allow the dough to rest for 10-15 minutes.
  • Divide the dough into 4 even balls.
  • Place one ball in between 2 sheets of baking paper. Roll dough to form a thin circle.
  • Remove the top layer of baking paper, place a small plate over the dough, and cut to form a neat circle.
  • Remove plate and repeat steps 6 and 7 with remaining dough.
  • Heat a large frying pan over medium heat, place a tortilla (dough side down) into the frying pan and remove the bottom sheet of paper.
  • Cook for 1-2 minutes, flip and cook for another 1 minute. Remove and repeat with remaining tortillas.
  • Store tortillas covered in an airtight container for up to 2 days.

Notes

  • Do not over cook the tortillas otherwise they will become very crunchy!
  • To add a little extra flavor try adding 1/2 tsp garlic powder and 1/2 tsp onion powder to the dry ingredients.
  • Xanthan gum is a vital ingredient in these tortillas giving them the strength and flexibility to be pliable.
  • Roll the tortilla dough nice and thin to stop it from cracking when cooked and rolling up.
