gluten free flour tortillas

When I was pregnant with Bubba, I started embracing all things gluten-free (including donuts – Hey I was pregnant).  I ate rice with abandon and even ate beans for the first time in years.  It was liberating and I realized that it was time to leave Paleo behind and embrace some aspects of the Gluten-free diet.   This is my way of saying expect me to starting making more gluten-free recipes. I still very much pay attention to how my body feels after I eat something but it’s very nice to have way more flexibility in my diet.

Anyhow, a lot has changed in my life since I released my book Paleo Eats.  The summer after Paleo Eats was released, I found myself at rock bottom again, but this time from stress and spiritual breakdown that started me on the amazing path that I am now on.

In the words of one of my favorite songs, I have been made new in a lot of ways.  I have a deeper connection to spirit, an appreciation for every blessing in my life and a new little baby to love.   I’ve been thinking about my mission in this life. What am I to give this world? I never realized that making recipes for people would turn into sharing love but I know know that my mission is to help heal the world through love.

I make it my mission that my works (past, present and future) be a channel for divine love. Make it touch you and bless all who come into contact with it.   Even if you love my work or hate my work, I still know the divine will bless you.

Ok, I know you probably came to this recipe thinking I was only going to talk how I love to eat like 20 of these gluten-free tortillas and how addicting they are.

I am addicted to them.

I do  hope you will love them as much as I do but I had to get these words out.  This is who I am and I’m blessed to share it.

I repeat this recipe is addicting so stock up on the supplies because you will make them more than once a week.

  1. In a small bowl add the rice flour, coconut flour, psyllium husk powder and sea salt and mix with a spoon until well combined.
  2. Add in One tablespoon of palm shortening and then pour in the boiling water. Mix with a spoon until you have a soft dough.
  3. Place a skillet over medium high heat and melt the rest of the palm shortening.
  4. Roll the rough into 7 golf ball sized balls and flatten between two sheets of parchment paper until they are roughly 1/4" thin.
  5. Place one in the skillet and cook until lightly brown on one side and then flip, roughly 1 minute per side. Remove from the stove and repeat with the remaining dough.
  6. Enjoy!

    I’m just curious as to why you would use all that random stuff when you can make the perfect tortillas our of just masa harina (or masa lista) and water.

      Some people are allergic to corn hun.

      Do you have a recipe for one? I’m looking for one that does not use eggs. I also do not have a press. I have had zero success but long for the corn tortilla!

    They look scrumptious … can’t wait to try. Thanks ever so much for sharing! One question, about how many tortillas will you recipe make (by size & number).

    Is there a substitute for psyllium husk powder? Trying to use something I may already have 🙂 Thanks!

      You would have to use egg hun. I’m not sure what the measurement would be.

    Is there a substitute for the psyllium husk powder? Trying to figure out what I can use that I already have in my pantry. Thanks!

    Hi Kelly,
    Do you think I could maybe substitute the rice flour with arrowroot flour? I can do neither corn nor rice, which seems to always be a gluten-free snag for me. I so want to try these!

    Thank you for everything you share,

      You could probably do Cassava flour hun.

    Why psyllium husk powder? Thank you

      It acts as a replacement for egg hun.
