With just 8 simple ingredients, I'll show you how to make a tortilla dough and roll and pan fry that dough to tortilla perfection.
INGREDIENTS IN KETO TORTILLAS
Almond Flour- This is the main flour that we'll use for our tortillas. Choose a finely milled almond flour for this recipe.
Coconut Flour - A small amount of coconut flour gives the perfect texture to the tortillas.
Xanthan Gum - This is a thickening and emulsifying agent, and necessary when baking without traditional gluten flour.
Baking Powder- This allows the dough to puff up a bit when cooked.
Kosher Salt - Added for flavor.
Garlic Powder - Optional, but I like the added savory flavor that it gives.
Egg - An egg binds all of the ingredients together and aids in browning.
Water - Use water to get the right dough consistency.

HOW TO MAKE KETO TORTILLAS
- Combine all ingredients in the bowl of a food processor.
- Pulse for 5 seconds at a time until a ball of dough is formed.
- Knead the dough by hand, then allow it to rest.
- Divide the dough into four small balls.
- Place one ball between two pieces of parchment paper and roll until it's about ⅛ inch thick and about 5-6 inches in diameter.
- Carefully peel the tortilla from the parchment.
- Place into preheated skillet. Cook until slightly charred.
- Flip tortilla, and repeat cooking on the other side.
These numbered steps match the numbered photos above and are for illustration purposes. For the complete list of ingredients and instructions, please see the recipe below.
TIPS FOR MAKING PERFECT KETO TORTILLAS
The dough will be sticky. Be very carful removing the dough from the parchment paper. You can just remove one piece of parchment, then put the tortilla in the pan and slowly remove the other piece as it cooks. Just be careful!
Try putting a bit of coconut flour on your fingers to help the dough from sticking to your hands.
Coconut flour burns easily. Make sure to keep your heat at medium to medium high. As soon as you see black spots, remove the tortilla from the heat.
If you have a tortilla press, you can use it for this recipe, but it's not needed for good results. A rolling pin will work just fine.
CAN I MAKE KETO TORTILLAS AHEAD OF TIME?
Yes! After cooking your tortillas, let them cool and then store in the fridge for up to 3 days.
Freeze the cooked tortillas, separated by parchment paper in an air tight bag or container for up to 3 months.
HOW TO REHEAT KETO TORTILLAS
You can heat up your tortillas in a few different ways.
I like to use a hot pan on the stove and warm them through one at a time.
You can also microwave them for 20-30 seconds.
HOW MANY NET CARBS IN TORTILLAS
This recipe for low carb tortillas creates 4 keto tortillas, each with 5 grams net carbs. A traditional store bought six inch tortilla has around 16 grams of carbs, making this recipe totally worth it.

- 1 cup almond flour
- 1T coconut flour
- 1T xanthan gum
- ½ tsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp kosher salt
- ¼ tsp garlic powder (optional)
- 1 large egg, lightly beaten
- 3 T water
- Combine all ingredients in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse for 5 seconds until a ball of dough is formed.
- Transfer the dough to a piece of plastic wrap and wrap tightly.
- Knead the dough for a minute or two with your hands, then allow to rest for 10-15 minutes.
- Divide the dough into 4 small balls. Place one ball between two pieces of parchment or wax paper and roll until it's about ⅛-inch thick, and about 5- 6 inches in diameter. You can also use a tortilla press if you have one. Carefully peel the pressed tortillas from the paper (the dough will be slightly sticky).
- Set a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. When hot, add tortilla and cook until slightly charred, about 15-20 seconds per side. Repeat until all tortillas are toasted and serve immediately.
- You can use a stand mixer or a hand mixer in place of the food processor. This will require a bit more kneading by hand to get the right dough consistency.
