Whole wheat tortillas

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups whole-wheat flour (King Arthur’s makes a whole-wheat white flour)
  • 1/2 cup oil (I used coconut oil)
  • 1 teaspoon salt (I used sea salt, because that is all I ever use!)
  • 1 cup warm water (heat in the microwave for 1 min)

*I doubled the recipe to have a bunch on hand for sandwich wraps (tortilla, hummus, cheese, and veggies~ kid lunch approved!), breakfast burritos (scrambled eggs, spinach, goat cheese, and tomato), and they were super handy individual pizza crusts 🙂

Directions

  1. In the bowl of a mixer set with a dough hook, pour in the flour, oil and salt. Beat until crumbly, about 3 to 5 minutes. Scrape the sides as needed. If your hand-held mixer comes with dough hooks those can be used as well.
  2. With the mixer running, gradually add the warm water and continue mixing until the dough is smooth, about 3 minutes.
  3. Take out the dough and divide it into 12 equal sized pieces. Do this by rolling out a log shape that is about 8 – 10 inches long. Then cut it in the middle. Then cut each of those pieces in the middle and so on until you have 12 pieces.
  4. Roll each piece into a ball and flatten it out on a baking tray or board. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest at room temperature for at least 15 minutes or up to one hour.
  5. Heat a cast iron skillet, griddle or 12-inch skillet over med-high heat. The pan should be fairly hot before you begin cooking the tortillas.
  6. On a lightly floured board or countertop, roll each ball into a 8 to 10 inch circle. Be careful not to use more than a teaspoon or two of flour when rolling out each ball of dough because too much excess flour will burn in the pan.
  7. Grease the pan with a touch of oil and then carefully transfer each tortilla (this takes a gentle hand, a few of mine broke into pieces during the process), one at a time, to the pan and cook until puffy and slightly brown, about 30 to 45 seconds per side. Set aside on a plate to cool slightly. Eat within an hour, refrigerate or freeze.
