Gluten-Free Flour Tortillas

Gluten-free flour tortillas are best used when they’re still warm. If they stiffen a bit upon standing, wrap them in a moistened paper towel and microwave for 30 seconds. They’ll be good as new. Recipe can be doubled.

  • 2 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour blend of choice
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup warm water (about 100°F)


  • To make tortillas, place flour blend, xanthan gum, baking powder and salt in a large bowl and mix well. Add 4 teaspoons vegetable oil and stir to combine. Pour in warm water in a slow, steady stream, adding in increments and stirring to combine.
  • Press dough together with wet hands and divide into 6 pieces. Roll each piece separately between two sheets of plastic wrap until about 1/8-inch thick and 8 inches wide.
  • Heat a large cast-iron or nonstick skillet. Once the skillet is hot, place each raw tortilla flat in the skillet, one at a time. Allow each to cook for 45 to 60 seconds or until slightly charred on the underside. (You’re better off under-cooking than over-cooking them. If you burn them, they won’t be pliable.) Then flip tortilla with a large, heatproof spatula and cook for another 30 to 45 seconds. Remove from pan and place on a plate. Continue until all tortillas are cooked.

    They are tasty but cannot roll them. I made quesadillas with them.
    I used Krusteaz GF all purpose flour, added 1 tablespoon pea protein and used olive oil.
