There is absolutely no secret that I am a bread lover right? I have been eating low carb for 5 years but I never gave up on bread. Of course, I make my own recipe all the time to keep my carbs in control and those vegan tortillas are my favorite.

What are almond flour tortillas?

Almond flour tortillas are flexible, gluten-free keto tortillas made with almond flour. They are perfect to roll any food and create delicious sandwich wraps. Also, almond flour tortillas are egg-free, dairy-free and therefore keto vegan tortillas too! The magic ingredients that provide this flexible texture without using eggs is psyllium husk, keep reading I will tell you more about it!almond flour tortillas keto vegan

What is psyllium husk ?

Psyllium husk is 100% fiber so it means it is a ZERO carb food. This is the amazing ingredients that makes those almond flour tortillas a plant-based keto recipe. Indeed, psyllium husk is extracted from a plant’s seeds. It is a great gluten free low carb baking flour to add elasticity to bread without using eggs. It should be noted that some husk brands can turn purple when baked. Therefore, I recommend you use my psyllium husk brand to avoid purple-ish tortillas. 

How almond flour tortillas taste like ?

Those are very similar to the wholemeal wraps you have been used to eat. In fact, they are easy to roll with some coarse texture from the almond flour and husk that gave them a lovely wholemeal flavor. Of course, they don’t contains gluten and only 3.2 grams of net carbs per wraps . I should note that if you prefer soft and light tortillas I have a lovely  keto coconut flour flatbread  recipe for you and a flax meal wraps recipe too.

An easy 5 ingredients tortilla recipe

Obviously, this is an easy low carb recipes, you know Sweetashoney always provide recipe with few ingredient right? So here you need only 5 ingredients, to make tasty almond flour tortillas.

  • Almond flour or almond meal both works
  • Ground psyllium husk – don’t substitute for something else, it gives the perfect elasticity to those egg free wraps
  • Water – lukewarm works best, think bath temperature
  • Salt
  • Olive oil or vegetable oil of your choice
  • Spices – they are optional but I love to add a combo of garlic powder and ground cumin. Others spices you can use are smoked paprika, turmeric, dried oregano. I love to use a spice that match the filling I will add in my wrap. I use oregano for italian wrap, turmeric for Indian fillings and paprika or cumin for Mexican fillings.

How to success your low carb tortillas?

1.Weight your ingredients

It can be tricky to bake with low carb flour for few reasons:

  • ground can be different from brands to brands. Some almond meal are thicker than almond flour and same for husk.
  • they contains lots of fiber. Fiber is highly water absorbent and the thinner is your meal the higher the liquid will be absorb

For those reason, I recommend to weight your dry ingredients to ensure a total success with low carb baking recipes.

2. Use parchment paper

Low carb bread dough is often sticky. To roll your dough use two piece of parchment paper. This will prevent the dough to stick to your roller pin.

  •  Mexican food  – fill your tortillas with chicken fajita or beef fajita, add a dollop of guacamole, cheddar and sour cream
  • Lunch wraps – cold meat like chicken, turkey with bacon, lettuce and mayonnaise
  • Indian wraps – a great keto dosa substitute to roll chicken tikka massala

Ingredients

Optional spices

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin or paprika or turmeric - optional
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder or onion powder - optional

Instructions

  • In a medium mixing bowl add all the dry ingredients: almond flour, psyllium husk and salt and spices if used.
  • Add olive oil and lukewarm water. Combine with a spatula. The batter is moist at first and will come together as you knead the dough. 
  • When the dough comes together use your hands to form a ball. Divide the ball in 4 even pieces. Roll each pieces into a small ball.
  • Place the first ball of dough between two pieces of parchment paper. 
  • Slightly press the ball with your hand palm and roll the dough with a rolling pin. Don't roll too thin or your wrap won't be as soft when cooked. The thinner the crispier they become. 
  • Gently peel off the top layer of parchment paper. 
  • If you want to shape a circle tortilla use a saucepan lid, place on top of the rolled tortillas, use a knife to cut out the border. Remove the border with your fingers. If you don't have a lid, simply cut out a rectangle or square.
  • On a non stick crepe Tefal pan (make sure your pan is a non stick one or the tortillas stick to the pan!), flip over the tortillas onto the pan. Peel off the last piece of parchment paper to release the rolled tortilla onto the pan.  Be careful, if the pan is too hot the tortilla tend to break. 
  • Bring to medium heat and cook for 2-3 minutes or until brown on one side. Flip over, slide a spatula or flat tool under the tortilla and flip over. 
  • Cook for an extra 1-2 minute. The longer you cook the tortilla, the crispier it will be and the more difficult it will be to roll it without breaking. I recommend you stop cooking them when the tortilla is still soft in the center.
  • Serve with filling of your choice or as a side bread to curry. 

Storage

  • Store up to 4 days in the fridge. Place them on a plate covered with plastic wrap to avoid them to dry out. Rewarm 1-2 minutes in a hot pan.
  • Freeze as regular tortillas up to 2 months.

  1. Amazing! This is the first vegan low-carb recipe I have tried. In fact it’s the first low-carb tortilla/bread I have tried to make at all. I was very nervous as I’ve never worked with psyllium husk and couldn’t believe that just water and olive oil would create a dough. Well, it did! I measured the ingredients exactly and the dough came together easily. It’s true that the dough is sticky and takes time to get used to, but rolling out between parchment paper pieces works. I don’t have a very large pan specifically for tortillas and crepes, so I made them very small, and this way, they were easy to flip since I don’t have a spatula either. They are pliable, have a pleasant earthy taste, and I can see them being versatile. The serving size is right – all the fibre makes them filling so you can’t eat more than 1.5 in a sitting. Thank you for creating an amazing eggless recipe that won’t gross out my egg-hating husband when I cook. I am excited to try all the creative recipes you’ve listed here, especially for bread, pancakes and tortillas, which I love.

  2. Never used psyyllium husk before and noticed so have done some research. Noticed your recipe uses more thsn the average recipe. Due to the husk being used as a laxative for some, concerned about getting too much of it in one wrwap. This recipe looks aawesome and love the low carb, no eggs, no baking powder..that’s hard to find. your thoughts on that amount of psyllium husk in your diet??Thanks

    • Hello and welcome on the blog ! Psyllium husk is a fiber, it is 100% fibre and s any fibre it helps with bowel movement. The total dietary fiber intake should be 25 to 30 grams a day from food. One of those wraps contains only 6 grams of fiber, from the husk, so it is absolutely fine to have one or two of those wraps. Note that a healthy wraps from the store or healthy bread (even not low carb) contains around 9 g fiber from 100g. Whatever the fiber are from husk and any similar plant-based sources the effect will be the same. As soon as you are in the range above it won’t be laxative, it will only ensure an healthy bowel movement and gut health. I hope it helps ! Enjoy the blog recipes. XOXO Carine


  3. You’re a lifesaver! I’ve been doing keto for about 3 months and lately I’ve been struggling to find something a little more interesting to eat that also keeps me full. It’s been tough finding a wrap recipe that doesn’t use eggs or coconut flour as well, but this recipe is amazing. Tastes in between a corn and whole wheat tortilla in my opinion, easy to make, easy to find ingredients, great texture, not time consuming. I can’t say enough good things. I’m obsessed, thank you so much!

    • Thank you so much that is the most beautiful comment I read today. I am so happy you find my blog. Enjoy the low carb keto recipes around here. XOXO Carine.


  4. I don’t normally comment on recipes but these were really delicious and worked fantasticlly on a 8″ tortilla press. I tripled the recipe and mixed in a stand mixer. Took balls out that weighed 60-70 grams each and gave them a quick press (parchment paper on each side) and threw them straight in the griddle. Came out fantastic. I accidentally used the tsp measure for oil instead of table spoon and it still came out fine.

  5. Hello,
    I tried this recipe and I used the exact ingredients you have but my bread was sooo much darker in color. Do you know why that would be?

    • Hello! The color can be different regarding the brand of husk you are using, some even turn purple when cooked, I am not sure why. Also, if you use almond meal instead of blanched almond flour the color will be closer to a brown tortilla. The flavor will end up the same. Enjoy the low carb recipes on the blog, XOXO Carine.


  6. Last time I measured the ingredients and this time I’m weighing them, but it seems much more than last time. Am I missing something?

    • Hi ! I am not sure what you mean, the recipe never changed. 1 cup of almond meal is always 120g etc. The recipe will came out the same if you measure in cup or grams. How did it goes?

  7. Question. I clicked on your ingredients list to purchase the psyllium. It calls for ground but the psyllium is whole. Do I grind it? I’ve never used it and this is my first attempt to make tortillas.
    Thanks

    • I buy coconut cream in can. It is sold in all supermarket, next to long life shelf milk or asian aisle. Enjoy ! XOXO Carine.


  8. OMG i have been looking for a tortilla that taste good and has good texture this recipe is a winner… and I am very picky


  9. These tortillas are excellent, and they fit nicely into a diabetic diet. I skipped the salt, but added some garlic & chipotle, and they came out tasting amazing.

    I just found this site today, and I’m looking forward to trying out some more of the recipes here. Thank-you for posting them!

    • That is amazing! I am so glad you find my blog, tried the recipe and give me such a beautiful feedback. Enjoy the recipes, XOXO Carine.


  10. Hi Carine – this recipe was an absolute winner. I almost left the Keto diet because I couldn’t find the right recipe to make low carb bread that tasted like bread. Thank you for sharing this! I now have 2 batches in the oven as the whole family wants MORE!!

  11. Hello,
    These tortillas look delicious. If I store them in the fridge overnight, will they still remain soft the next day?

    • Sure!But you don’t have to store them in the fridge as there is no eggs or dairy. My recommendation is to place them on a plate, wrap the plate with plastic wrap to make sure they are not in contact with air (it would dry them slightly). They will stay soft few days in the pantry stored this way! Enjoy the recipe. XOXO Carine.


  12. When I found your recipe I wasn’t expecting much, I just needed a quick tortilla for my pulled pork. These rolled out like a dream, a dream that only people on the keto lifestyle have, and cooked up beautifully! I made 6 inch tortillas plus I overcooked a few to do in salsa. These tortillas made my day! I believe these are my tortilla soul mate! Thank you for creating this!

    • Argh too many kind words in one comments. THANK YOU for being here and trying my recipe. Making you happy makes my happy. Enjoy the keto recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine.


  13. Mexican over here. Ketonian for a few months. This is the first recipe that I’ve tried that comes so close to a real tortilla. No egg taste. I can almost say I tasted corn. Oh so yummmm. Thank you!!! Taco night here we go!!! I thought I’d never see a real taco again.

    • Hahah I LOVE the ‘I tasted corn’ cause this what I also thought when eating them. I am so so happy to read your comment. Thanks so much for trying this recipe. Enjoy taco night AND the recipes on the blog and thanks for trying some of my keto friendly recipes ! XOXO Carine.
