These homemade tortillas are easy to make and taste sooo much better than sprouted grain store-bought ones.

  • 2 c. flour, spelt, whole-grain, organic
  • 1 tsp. sea salt, unrefined and pure
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder, organic, gluten & aluminum-free
  • 1 tbs. olive oil, extra virgin, unrefined and unfiltered, organic
  • 3/4 c. water, purified

Combine spelt flour, sea salt, and baking powder in a bowl. Add olive oil and hot water. Mix well. Cover and let sit in a warm place for 20 minutes.

Divide into 8 equal parts and let sit, covered, for another 20 minutes.

Roll each ball out to a 6 or 7 inch circle shape. I've found it helps to flatten each ball with your hand. Then take the rolling pin and roll from the center outwards...back and forth a few times as you go around the circle. When it starts to get thinner, take your left hand (if you're right handed) and turn the tortilla a couple inches. Use your right hand to use the rolling pin (holding in the middle) and roll from the center outwards. Keep turning and rolling until it is paper thin.

Preheat a skillet on medium high heat. I didn't use oil, but you could lightly grease the pan or tortillas if you'd like.

Place a tortilla into the skillet and watch until bubbles form. This won't take long!

After bubbles form, and the bottom is lightly brown (or there are darker spots), flip over, press down once or twice, and cook for about 30-45 seconds. Watch carefully! It might cook quicker for you.

Cook remaining tortillas, watching carefully, and place in a plastic bag, with damp paper towels in between them (or at least on top and bottom of stack) to keep them soft and moist.

Refrigerate for later use or remove the paper towels, replace with wax paper or parchment paper in between each tortilla and freeze.
