Are Corn Tortillas Keto?

No, regular corn tortillas are not keto-friendly as they are made with corn flour which is high in carbs. A small corn tortilla has over 10 grams of carbs which may kick you out of ketosis. 

Luckily, making keto corn tortillas is possible when using low carb flour alternatives. 

Can You Make Tortillas with Coconut Flour?

Yes, you can make coconut flour tortillas with just a few ingredients, such as Psyllium Husk Powder to help give the dough structure.

Keep in mind that the texture of these tortillas may be different from traditional tortillas, but they can still be a tasty and nutritious alternative.

Is Coconut Flour Keto Friendly?

Coconut flour is a fantastic keto flour for making wonderful low-carb sweets, bread, and cakes. It’s high in fiber, so it’s a good choice if you’re trying to cut down on carbs. Coconut flour is also gluten-free and naturally extremely absorbent.

Ingredients For Keto Tortillas With Coconut Flour

I love this easy gluten-free almond flour tortilla recipe because it requires a few ingredients that you can easily find at almost any store. Here is everything you will need:

keto wraps with coconut flour ingredients
  • Psyllium Husk Powder – this ingredient gives that chewy texture of bread to your flatbread and makes them super pliable. Some brands of psyllium husk powder make the dough purple, which doesn’t affect the taste and texture.
  • Coconut Flour – this type of flour is one of my favorite low-carb flour substitutes that absorbs liquids well.
  • Water – is the key element that activates the flour; we use it instead of eggs to avoid an eggy flavor.
  • Olive Oil – you can use your favorite vegetable oil; my favorite one is olive oil because it will give a special taste to these coconut flour tortillas.
  • Baking Powder- this ingredient helps give the flatbread a super fluffy wheat-like texture.
  • Salt – to taste.

Step-By-Step Guide To Make Keto Tortilla Dough

Here we go with another keto recipe that is extremely easy to make and doesn’t require any cooking skills. Follow the next steps to make this incredibly delicious flatbread with coconut flour:

Making The Tortilla Dough

Combine dry ingredients. In a large mixing bowl, add the coconut flour and psyllium husk powder. Mix them until there are no visible lumps.

Mix the wet ingredients. Add warm water (you need to make sure that your water is warm, not hot) and the olive oil over the flour mixture. Combine all the ingredients using a spatula.

Knead the dough. After combining the dry and wet ingredients, use your hands to knead the dough for about two minutes. 

Set aside. Let your dough rest for about 10 minutes in the mixing bowl.

Rolling out The Dough

First, make sure your rolling surface is prepared by lightly dusting it with coconut flour to prevent it from sticking.

Cut your dough into eight pieces, then roll each piece of dough into a ball. Place one ball between two pieces of parchment paper and roll the tortilla into a 1/8-inch thick circle.

To get that perfectly round shape, use a plate or a bowl to cut out round flatbread.

Cooking Keto Tortillas

Heat up a skillet over medium-high heat and add some oil or butter.

Use a spatula to gently place each tortilla onto the skillet so that it doesn’t break apart.

Cook each tortilla for about three minutes on each side until golden brown.

If needed, add more oil or butter to the pan after cooking each tortilla.

Since these don’t contain gluten like regular wheat-based tortillas do, it’s important to make sure that you press out each one very thin, so they cook evenly.

When they’re done cooking, set them aside on a paper towel to cool off before serving with your favorite Mexican dishes.

Tips For Making The Best Keto Tortillas Recipe

  • Cook your tortillas over medium heat to ensure that they cook through without burning. You’ll know they’re ready when they start to puff up and brown on the edges.
  • If the dough is too crumbly, add a couple of teaspoons of water until it comes together.
  • Ensure that the water you’re using is warm and not hot; this will help the psyllium powder activate.
  • To avoid having any lumps a great idea to sift the coconut flour before mixing it with the psyllium husk.
  • To prevent your tortillas from sticking to the pan, use a non-stick surface like a well-seasoned cast iron skillet or a non-stick griddle.
  • Add 1/4 tsp xanthan gum to bind the ingredients together and give the tortillas a more dough-like texture.

How To Store

Tortillas are like a blank canvas, ready to be filled with the flavors of your choosing. But once keto tortillas have been made, it’s important to know how to store them and reheat them properly so they maintain their texture and flavor.

Ensure you place them in an airtight container or casserole once completely cooled down.

By doing this, you can prevent moisture from penetrating the tortilla and causing it to become soggy.

Room temperature – This keto flatbread with coconut flour can be stored in a dark place and wrapped in plastic foil for five days.

Reheat by either placing on a hot skillet over medium heat or wrap in damp paper towels and microwave for 30-second intervals until warm.

Be careful not to overcook – this can ruin the texture and make them brittle instead of pliable!

You can also freeze the leftovers if you want to save them for another time; just make sure you thaw before heating.

Can I Make Them Ahead Of Time?

Sure, this keto flatbread recipe is great to make ahead of time and eat whenever you want. You have to let the flatbread completely cool and store it in an airtight container in the fridge for one week.

Can I Freeze Low Carb Corn Tortillas?

Yes, you can freeze them for up to 2 months by placing them individually in ziplock bags.

Serving Ideas

Coconut flour tortillas can be served with a variety of fillings, toppings, and side dishes, depending on personal preference. Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • You can use them to make some delicious chicken fajitas.
  • I love to use this bread for recipes with sauces, like this Garlic Mushroom Pork Chops or this delicious creamy mushroom chicken recipe.

  • Salad: Serve your tortillas alongside a crisp salad with mixed greens, veggies, and a protein of your choice.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a good substitute for flour when making tortillas?

One great alternative is almond flour or coconut flour – both of which provide a delicious flavor and texture without all the carbs found in regular wheat flour. Additionally, many recipes call for using xanthan gum or psyllium husk powder as an additional binding agent to help hold together the dough.

Is pita bread the same as this keto tortillas?

The short answer is no because pita bread is made using wheat flour, which we all know is not a keto-friendly

Can I make this recipe with almond flour?

I don’t recommend using almond flour in this particular recipe because the properties of these two low-carb flour are different, and you will have to change the amount of all the ingredients.

Can I add different seasonings?

Sure, a great idea will be to add some dried parsley or oregano to the batter.

What should I do if my dough is too wet?

To absorb excess water in the dough, add more coconut flour or psyllium husk. But I recommend waiting a bit after you finish kneading the dough because the absorption properties of coconut flour will activate in a few minutes.

What psyllium husk does in this recipe?

Psyllium husk powder is flour prepared from psyllium husk shells. Because it is almost all soluble fiber, it is frequently used in keto baking due to its low net carbohydrate content. It also mimics gluten to give the bread a chewier texture.
