Ingredients

  • 1 cup 225 ml (125 g) coconut flour
  • ¼ tsp ¼ tsp (1.1 g) baking soda
  • ½ tsp ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ cup 60 ml (30 g) ground psyllium husk powder
  • ½ cup 125 ml avocado oil or olive oil
  • 3 3 large egg whitelarge egg whites
  • 1½ cups 350 ml hot water

Instructions

Instructions are for 6 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Heat a large cast iron skillet or griddle medium heat.
  2. In a large bowl, sift together the coconut flour, baking soda and salt. Whisk in the psyllium husk.
  3. Drizzle in the oil slowly as you stir the mix, it will become moist and crumbly. Fold in the egg whites.
  4. Mix in the hot water half cup at a time, making sure it’s completely mixed in before adding more water. Combine until the dough looks and feels like moist play-doh.
  5. Shape 12 even-sized balls. Flatten the balls between parchment paper on a tortilla press or use a 6” pot and press them down.
  6. Cook 2 tortillas at a time on the large griddle by lying flat on the hot, dry cast iron and toasting 3 minutes a side, flipping once. Set aside until all the tortillas are done.

Tip!

If your mix is too wet add in 1 teaspoon of psyllium husk at a time, waiting a minute before mixing in the next one to make sure it is absorbing the liquid. Alternatively, if your mix is too dry, add 1 teaspoon of water in at a time in the same fashion until the ideal texture is achieved, moist play-doh.

Store the leftover tortillas by wrapping up flat and air tight and freezing.

    Can I substitute pusillium husks for pyllium husks powder? (Or can I grind the husks in a coffee grinder to make “powder”?)

    That would work as long as you can get them ground very fine.

    Do you whip the egg whites before folding in?

    They are not 1:1 substitutes as coconut flour requires much more liquid. You can read more here - https://www.dietdoctor.com/low-carb/recipes/baking

    As an accompaniment to my weekly curry I'll be substituting garlic salt for the regular salt, and rolling out thinner, like a chapatti.
