Easy Paleo Tortillas (Gluten Free, Grain Free, Nut Free, Dairy Free, Nightshade Free, Paleo, Vegetarian)

One of the more challenging things about going Paleo is giving up foods that are often used to hold other foods (think bread, tortillas, wraps, etc.)

Thankfully, alternatives, and easy ones to make, do exist!

These Paleo friendly tortillas are made just like a crepe or pancake, so in the time it would take to drive to the grocery store, you can whip up the batter and cook up a batch on a stovetop skillet.

Despite what you might expect, these "Paleofied" tortillas work like the real thing, and are perfect for tacos, burritos, wraps, or anything else you can imagine.

Easy Paleo Tortillas 
(Gluten Free, Grain Free, Nut Free, Dairy Free, Nightshade Free, Paleo, Vegetarian)

2 eggs
1 tsp melted bacon fat (plus 1 additional tsp for greasing pan)
1 tbsp water
¼ cup tapioca starch
1 tsp plantain flour
Pinch sea salt

In a small bowl, whisk together wet ingredients (eggs, water, bacon fat). In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients (salt, tapioca starch, plantain flour). Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients while continually whisking until smoothly combined into a thin batter.

Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat (I recommend a ceramic pan) and grease with a small amount of bacon fat. When the pan is hot, add enough batter to form a 6-8in disk. Allow it to cook until bubbles form in the center and the edges start to pull up (approximately 1 minute). Flip and cook for another minute before removing to a plate to cool. Repeat this process until all the batter is used up.

Use the tortillas immediately, or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.

  1. Is there any other kind of fat I can use instead of bacon fat?

  2. Can you substitute the flours? I was wondering if a coconut flour is ok?
