What Are Almond Flour Tortillas?
They are perfect for rolling any food and creating delicious sandwich wraps. I guarantee that they won’t break when you fold them!
They are also egg-free, dairy-free, and therefore perfectly vegan!
The magic ingredient that provides this flexible texture without using eggs is psyllium husk. Keep reading. I will tell you more about it!
How To Make Almond Flour Tortillas
This is such an easy low-carb recipe with very few ingredients and no baking powder to keep things simple.
So here, you only need 5 ingredients to make tasty almond flour tortillas.
- Almond Flour or almond meal both work.
- Whole Psyllium Husk – don’t substitute for something else. It gives the perfect elasticity to these egg-free wraps. Also, don’t use Metamucil fiber supplements in this recipe. This is not the same product as whole psyllium husk fiber. Metamucil is a husk powder that is not suitable for baking keto bread. It will turn food dry, purple, or blue.
- 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. Other spices you can use are smoked paprika, turmeric, and dried oregano. I love to use a spice that matches the filling I will add to my wrap. I use oregano for Italian wrap, turmeric for Indian fillings, and paprika or cumin for Mexican fillings.

Weigh your ingredients
It can be tricky to bake with low-carb flour for a few reasons:
- Flours can be different from brand to brand. Some almond meals are coarser than almond flour, and the same applies to the whole husk.
- They contain lots of fiber. Fiber is highly water absorbent, and the finer your meal, the more liquid it will be absorbed.
For these reasons, I recommend weighing your dry ingredients to ensure total success with low-carb baking recipes.
Use parchment paper
Low carb flatbread dough is often sticky. To roll your dough, use two pieces of parchment paper. This will prevent the dough from sticking to your roller pin.
Serving Keto Tortillas
There are tasty tortillas for any occasion like:
- Mexican food – fill your tortillas with chicken fajita or beef fajita made with my Mexica spice mix. 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 for rolling chicken tikka masala.
Store your keto tortillas for up to 4 days in the fridge. Place them on a plate covered with plastic wrap to prevent them from drying out.
Rewarm them for 1-2 minutes in a hot pan.
You can also freeze these almond flour tortillas for up to 2 months in individual zip-lock bags.
Frequently Asked Questions
What Is Psyllium Husk?
Psyllium husk is made almost entirely of fiber, so it means it has very low carbs.
To learn more about the carbs in various flour, read my article on choosing your keto flour!
Psyllium husk is the amazing ingredient that makes these almond flour tortillas a plant-based keto recipe.
Indeed, psyllium husk is extracted from a plant’s seeds.
It’s 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 a specific psyllium husk brand to avoid purple-ish tortillas.
How Do Almond Flour Tortillas Taste?
These are very similar to the wholemeal wraps you have been used to eating.
In fact, they are easy to roll with some coarse texture from the almond flour and husk that gives them a lovely wholemeal flavor.
Of course, they don’t contain gluten and only 3.2 grams of net carbs per wrap.
Can I Cook These Keto Tortillas In The Oven?
I wouldn’t recommend baking these flatbreads in the oven. They wouldn’t have the right texture and might not be flexible enough.
Can I Skip The Psyllium Husk?
Unfortunately not, psyllium husk is essential for the texture of this recipe.
