  • 1/4 cup chia meal
  • 6 tablespoons water, warm-hot
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil or palm shortening, or light olive oil (not extra virgin)


  • 1/4 cup almond flour OR raw sunflower seed flour, or raw pumpkin seed flour (I make my own by whirring raw almonds or seeds in my spice grinder). I have also used teff here.
  • 1/4 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/4 cup teff flour OR for PALEO sub a seed or nut flour of choice. For nut/seed free use toasted quinoa flour.
  • 1/8 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder I make my own grain free, recipe on my blog
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt


  1. In a large pyrex measuring cup, blend the wet ingredients until well incorporated and gelled (the warm water melts the oils).
  2. Sprinkle the dry ingredients over the top, in the order listed.
  3. Whisk gently before fully incorporating with the wet. I use my hands to pull the dough together and knead it. The dough should be soft, pliable, and easy to handle.
  4. Divide the dough into 4 balls, and preheat a cast iron pan over medium heat.

  5. Using a non-stick baking mat or two pieces of waxed paper or plastic wrap, place one ball on a hard surface. Cover with a piece of waxed paper. Roll out to about 6-7 inches (double the dough if you want larger tortillas). If the edges are tattered, gently smoosh and mold the edges with your finger tips.  I have since purchased a tortilla press and LOVE it!  Makes my job SO much easier!!

  6. Place in a preheated stainless steel or cast iron skillet over medium. Flip at about 1 minute, and cook for another 30 seconds or so. You do not want to overcook these, they will lose their pliability!
  7. Cool and store in an airtight location, in the freezer for prolonged use if you need it! We have stored them in the fridge for 10 days with no issues (refreshed with a warm pan and a touch of oil).
