Can You Make Tortillas With Almond Flour?
Oh yes, these easy gluten free almond flour tortillas are made from almond flour and a few other ingredients like eggs, psyllium husks, and gelatin powder, all of which help give them a pliable, and roll-able texture.
How To Make Keto Tortillas
It’s super easy to make keto tortillas with almond flour:
- Mix up the keto tortilla dough. Add super fine almond flour, psyllium husk powder, gelatin powder, and sea salt to a food processor. Process until uniform.
- Add the eggs and water. Process until the dough pulls away from the sides and forms a ball.
TIP: If the dough is dry, add a tablespoon of water at a time, until the dough forms.
- Section out the tortillas. Cut the dough into 6 sections. I like to flatten the dough into a disc and then cut like a pie.
- Shape the tortillas. Roll each section into a ball (about the size of a golfball!) and flatten the tortillas into 1/8-inch thick circle, either with a rolling pin or tortilla press.
- Cook the keto tortillas. Heat a lightly oiled pan over medium heat and cook tortilla for about 30-60 seconds per side, until golden.
TIP: Don’t add too much oil to the pan, or the tortillas will get crispy and break when you try to bend them!
Three Tips For The Best Keto Almond Flour Tortillas
TIP #1: Don’t let get the edges of the tortillas get too disk or crispy, otherwise they will break when you try to fold them.
TIP #2: Fold the tortillas gently when you need to fold or roll them.
TIP #3: If the tortillas get stiff as they cool, you can reheat them in the microwave or oven at 300 degrees F to make them more pliable.
Are Corn Tortillas Keto?
No, corn tortillas are not keto friendly. An average serving of corn tortillas (2 small tortillas) is about 20+ grams of carbs, way too many for a small amount of food.

How Many Carbs In Almond Flour Tortillas?
One of these tortillas made with almond flour has just 3 grams net carbs! You can have your keto friendly tortillas and eat them too! 🙂
How Do You Store Keto Tortillas?
These keto tortillas should be stored in the refrigerator. I always recommend putting a layer of parchment or wax paper in between the layers, so they don’t stick together. Then, you can store them in a plastic bag or airtight container.
How To Freeze Keto Almond Flour Tortillas
The good news is that these keto almond flour tortillas can be frozen, so you can always have a stash in the freezer.
Let the almond tortillas cool completely, and store them in a freezer-safe bag.
TIP: When you freeze them, it’s especially important to use a layer of parchment paper in between the layers, so that the almond flour wraps don’t stick together.

Combine the almond flour, psyllium husk powder, gelatin powder, and sea salt in a food processor. Process until uniform.
Add the eggs and water. Process until the dough pulls away from the sides and forms a ball. If it's too dry, add more water a tablespoon at a time until the dough forms. It should be dense, moist, and dough-y, not wet or dry. Scrape any ingredients stuck to the sides with a spatula if needed.
Cut the dough ball into 6 sections. (The easiest way is to flatten into a disc and cut like a pie.)
Roll each section into a ball, about the size of a golf ball, then roll into a 1/8-inch-thick (.3 cm) circle between two pieces of parchment paper. (You can also flatten using a tortilla press if you have one.)
Heat a very lightly oiled pan over medium heat. (Do not add too much oil or the tortillas will get crisp.) Add a tortilla and cook for 30-60 seconds per side, until golden. Flip and repeat on the other side. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
