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.

I just discovered your website, and there are so many recipes I want to try! First, I'm going for the Paleo Cornbread and this one. Since I cook only for myself, I will need to store what I don't eat immediately. Can you tell be how to store them, please? I've never cooked with these flours, and don't know how to keep breads made with them for a few days or longer. Will they freeze okay?

Yes, you can freeze them, and they will be fine. I store my gluten-free flours in the freezer.

It acts as a replacement for egg hun.

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, Wendy

You could probably do Cassava flour hun.

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!
