I’d call that a dinner time win!

Confession Time

I have to confess that my kids eat a lot of tortillas!

When it comes to school lunches, wrapping vegetables and quality protein in tortillas is a real staple in our house. Wouldn’t you agree that wrapping up our kids’ food is the easiest way to give them the healthy food they need in a packaging they want and like?

But let’s be real. Store bought, grain-free tortillas are NOT cheap! I don’t care to think of how much money I have spent buying grain free tortillas!

It’s one thing if you are just cooking for one or two, but when you’ve got 5 hungry people to feed you start to realize that making your own almond flour tortillas or flatbread will keep your wallet a bit fuller!

To keep confessing, I’ve even bought gluten free flour and corn tortillas for them in a pinch! What can I say, I’m a busy, working mom and sometimes, life happens! And, on occasion, that’s okay. But in the grand scheme of things, I want to make sure that I am providing my family with the meals I believe in and so this recipe was a must!

What’s in these almond flour tortillas that makes these good for you?

Almond Flour

  • An easy, grain-free flour to sub 1-1
  • Low carb
  • High in Vitamin E, Riboflavin, and Potassium
  • Great for stabilizing blood sugar improving energy levels

Coconut Flour

  • Low in carbohydrates (won’t spike insulin or blood sugar)
  • Good for metabolism (contains MCT’s which can be converted by the body quickly into energy)
  • High in both soluble and insoluble fiber to support healthy digestion and heart health

Cassava Flour (optional ingredient)

Cassava flour includes resistant starch which feeds our gut bugs so that they can produce short chain fatty acids to keep our gut lining intact, help produce energy, keep our immune defenses up and signal to us when we are full!

Psyllium Husk Powder

Psyllium Husk powder is high in soluble fiber which is great for regularity and digestion.

It actually passes through your digestive system without being absorbed! This way it can help maintain healthy blood sugar levels and support weight loss.

Tips for making my grain free almond flour tortillas:

  • Add the psyllium husk to the dry ingredients at the start
  • Pour all of the liquid in together and start mixing immediately to assure the psyllium husk does not separate.
  • Use your hands to knead the dough, don’t be afraid to get in there and work the ingredients into nice pliable dough
  • Get your self an inexpensive tortilla press or roll out the dough between 2 pieces of parchment paper.

  • Let the dough sit for 5-10 minutes.
  • Line a 9/13 inch baking pan with parchment paper and carefully press the flatbread dough in with your hands to cover the whole area. Your dough will be quite thin.
