Grainless Tortillas

Casava-TortillasGrainless Tortillas:

This recipe is a slightly modified version from my friend Megan Kelly.  She has an incredible blog and is a Licensed Esthetician specializing in holistic nutrition, woman’s hormones, and spiritual health.


Grainless Tortillas Ingredients:

1 cup of Cassava Flour

2 tbsps of melted grass-fed butter (or olive oil)

2/3 cup of warm water

Pinch of pink salt

¼ tsp of baking soda

¼ tsp of apple cider vinegar

Grainless Tortillas Instructions:

  1. Mix the flour, pink salt, and baking soda together in a bowl.
  2. Add the apple cider vinegar, butter or oil, and warm water. Stir to combine.
  3. Divide the dough into 4 balls
  4. Roll out each ball between two sheets of parchment paper.
  5. Cook each tortilla on a hot pan or skillet- use coconut oil or butter for frying.
  6. Cook on medium heat 1-2 minutes until bubbles form; flip and cook for another minute.
  7. Remove and continue with the rest of dough. The tortillas can be made in advance and warmed before use.

Dr Jockers Comments:

So many of my clients love Mexican foods, burritos, taco’s and tortillas but since we look to remove grains and corn, they have limited options.  This recipe is both corn and gluten free and has an anti-inflammatory effect on the body.

Cassava is a root vegetable that is also known as Yuca.  It is a staple food for many populations across Latin America, Asia and Africa.  Cassava is loaded with prebiotics that help feed your microbiome and improve the development of good bacteria in your gut.

We have found that Otto’s Cassava Flour is one of the best replacements for wheat flour and can be used in many different recipes including cakes, cookies, pancakes and crepes.  It doesn’t have the same dry taste or texture as many other gluten-free flours.

    Thanks Dr Jockers I live in Africa a portion of the year and am trying to correlate the difference in health and food this surely helps and explains the health variation

      The USDA value has the carbs listed as 38.06 grams per 100 grams (3.5 oz) cassava flour. Just figure the total for the recipe, divide by 4, and add the carbs in what you fill them with for a total. I believe the cider vinegar may have around .06 grams, the rest of the ingredients add 0 (zero) carbs.
      It is not a good idea to make cassava a staple, but the nutritional benefits vs the higher carbs make it a healthier alternative to grains. 😀

    How often can we allow someone on a grain free, sugar free and dairy free diet have this? My daughter just started her new diet 1 week ago with Dr. Shannon. She is missing her tortillas and breads. We are preparing a lot of things with coconut flour but it is not the same.

      Hey Nimarta, you could make these with Ghee or olive oil instead of butter!
