Today I have a super simple recipe to share with you guys: Homemade 100% Whole Wheat Tortillas!
These have been on my to-make list for quite a while now. If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time, you know that I’m semi-obsessed with tortillas. I eat them all.the.time.
And even though I do my best to buy brands that are 100% whole wheat and low in sodium, it’s rare that I can find a brand with an ingredient list that satisfies me. Tortillas seem like a pretty simple thing to make right?
Well if you look at the ingredient list on many store bought brands, you’ll likely see something like this:
Lots of unnecessary stuff. I always thought it would be pretty easy to make them at home but I never got around to trying until yesterday.
And guess what? They are SUPER easy to make and only require 4 ingredients! Win!
Homemade Whole Wheat Tortillas
With only 4 ingredients, these tortillas do away with the store brand mystery ingredient list. Roll them up and enjoy with breakfast, lunch, or dinner!
- 2 cups white whole wheat flour
- 3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 2/3 c warm water
- In a bowl, mix together the flour, oil and salt.
- Slowly add the warm water while stirring until a rough dough comes together. Add a little extra water if needed.
- Turn the dough onto the counter and knead for about two minutes.
- Return to bowl and let rest for 20 minutes.
- Divide dough into 8 equal balls.
- Roll each ball into a circle (you want them to be pretty thin)
- Heat a pan over medium high heat and grease lightly.
- Drop one dough circle into the pan and let cook until bubbles form- about 1 minute.
- Flip over and cook another minute, pressing down with a spatula if needed. Repeat with remaining dough.
- Use immediately, store in an airtight container in the fridge or freeze.
Super easy. I used white whole wheat flour, but this should work with all purpose flour as well.
If your tortillas come out a little too hard, you probably rolled them too thin. Next time, leave the dough a little thicker when you roll them out. I store mine in a ziploc bag in the fridge.
