Whole Wheat Tortillas

- Ready In:
- Mix flour, salt, and baking powder with your hand.
- Work oil into the flour mixture until crumbly (I use my hands, it's more fun!).
- Add warm water and let rest 5 minutes.
- Take a small portion and pat it in a ball. Roll flat like pie crust on a cutting board.
- On a VERY hot pan, cook until bubbles form. Flip and cook until raised bubbles are dark brown. These will cook very fast. It takes some practice to get your technique in time with rolling, cooking, flipping, rolling, cooking -- :) Watch for burning!
- Note: Yield depends on the size you make your tortillas.

Well I'm hesitant to leave a review or divvy up stars on these, only because of what I did wrong. I think the recipe is a very good one. The flavor was good, but now to my issues..... I think I rolled them way too thick since I only got 4 tortillas, then I had the pan wayyyy too hot and scorched them. I think I wasn't fast enough in flipping either. But all in all I will definately try these again, 2nd time the charm? Made for PAC Spring 09.
I have never made tortillas before, but this sounded like an uncomplicated, highly rated, fairly healthy recipe. I had such high hopes that I doubled it. Silly me. It was a disaster. Didn't look, taste, smell or roll like tortillas should. They stuck to the counter and the rolling pin, they fell apart, they didn't blister or bubble, and they taste like cardboard. Either I'm the world's worst tortilla maker or this is the world's worst recipe ... give it a shot if you dare, but don't say I didn't warn you.
I was looking for a homemade tortilla that was low in sodium to use in making quesadilas. I had never made tortillas before, so I tried 2 recipes this morning. Needless to say one did not turn out well. This one certainly did. I made it exactly how it was directed even using my hands to mix it. It is a very pliable dough yet firm enough to withstand the rolling pin. I rolled out between two pieces of plastic wrap since that's what I saw in other recipes. Only got 6 tortillas so will double the recipe next time. Very tasty.

I love to cook meals for my little family and experiment with new recipes/ingredients. Thankfully, God has given my husband an adventurous palate :) We're passionate about whole, unprocessed foods and believe that what you eat has the greatest impact on your health. My greatest cooking hits: Easy and quick healthy meals My greatest flops: Low sugar desserts! I am notorious for trying to adapt a dessert recipe to "healthy" - producing a very less than tasty "treat" :) When I'm rarely not in the kitchen, I work from home as a Graphic Designer and am delighted to work with my husband on our healthy chocolate business! <img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg">
