    about the Tortillas - I think you left out a step. The recipe goes from spreading out the mixture to flattening the ball.
    Thanks,

    Can the almond flour be substituted for coconut flour? If so, how much would be recommended?

    We have not tested this recipe with coconut flour instead of almond flour.

    Wonder if this can be dairy free by using mozzarella "style" shreds?

    They will generally keep for 3-5 days but may get a little soggy depending on your climate.

    Could we pan fry the individual tortillas instead of baking in the oven?

    We have not tested these pan fried. The bottom may burn before the top cooks through and they may fall apart when flipping.

    These burned onto the baking pan. I think maybe parchment and a little grease on the baking sheet. They just seem so dry at 10 minutes. If I waited longer they would burn to a crisp. Perhaps the zucchini was too dry? Not too sure.
    I placed a section of parchment paper in a baking sheet and lightly coated it with butter. I scored them but didn't roll out each individually. They came out really well, just like the picture!

    Glad the parchment paper was helpful and they worked out for you!

    We have not found a good substitute for the psyllium in this recipe.

    well !! what can one say .... made these wraps today in my electric pizza pan ..... left the grease proof paper on the bottom of the tortilla and then cooked them for around 14 mins untill nicely browned, kept checking untill the right colour was reached..... tasted one whilst warm with fresh baby spinach, peppered mackeral and baby tomatoes very, very delicious ..... thankyou for this lovely recipe ..... by the way I made this with yellow courgettes instead of green thats the only thing that I had changed
