Homemade Flour Tortillas
Hi Everyone, these Homemade Flour Tortillas taste SO much better than store-bought tortillas.
They are perfect for sandwich wraps or for dipping in hummus – or even just by themselves!
There’s something so amazing about homemade bread of any kind.
This recipe is comprised of pantry staples with options to swap out different kinds of oil (I used coconut oil for a dairy-free/vegan option).
You can use the same amount of vegetable oil, vegetable shortening (or lard if you are hardcore caloric-wise).
My husband, Eric, is a huge fan of wraps and he always picks them up when he does the grocery shopping.
Really, eating these Homemade Flour Tortillas makes the store-bought ones taste like cardboard!
I love how these hold up for wrapping a sandwich too, they don’t easily rip which is nice and of course that depends on how thin you make them.
This recipe only requires 5 ingredients:
- 2 cups bread flour (you can substitute the same amount of all-purpose flour)
- 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
- 1/4 cup coconut oil (you can substitute the same amount vegetable oil or vegetable shortening)
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2-3/4 cup warm water (you can substitute the same amount warms milk, if not vegan)
- rolling pin
- pastry mat
- tea towels
- dough scraper
- mixing bowls
- wire whisk

- 2 cups bread flour, you can substitute the same amount all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
- 1/4 cup coconut oil, room temperature, you can substitute the same amount vegetable oil or vegetable shortening
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2-3/4 cup warm water, you can substitute the same amount warm milk, if not vegan
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, salt, and baking powder.
- Cut the coconut oil using a pastry cutter or your fingertips; the mixture should be crumbly.
- Add the warm water, until sticky dough ball forms. Cover and allow the dough to rest for 30 minutes.
- Using a dough scraper, cut the dough ball into 8-10 balls or 6-8 (to make larger tortillas)
- Working over a lightly floured surface (like a pastry mat), roll each dough ball with a rolling pin, until 1/4 inch or slightly less thick. Handling the dough too much will make the tortillas tough.
- Heat a large skillet on the stovetop and when the pan is heated (no oil is needed to cook them) cook each tortilla until there are little browned spots and flip them over. They should look dry and overcooking will lead to them being hard.
- Keep them wrapped in a tea towel to keep them warm as you cook each one.
