I use Bob’s Red Mill Cassava Flour to make these tortillas. Are you new to cassava flour? Cassava is a starchy root vegetable that in my opinion is underused in our country.

The starch in cassava make it a great carbohydrate option for those who don’t eat grains or legumes (hint: if you follow an AIP or paleo diet or are doing a Whole30), and also make it ideal for baking, as it holds together much better than some of the grain-free flours out there.

How to Make Cassava Flour Tortillas:

Add all ingredients to a mixing bowl.

Cassava flour tortillas in the making

Stir well until everything is well combined and a dough forms. Form the dough into a ball. Allow the dough to sit at room temperature (or transfer to the refrigerator) for at least 1 hour. Place the ball of dough on a cutting board that is dusted with cassava flour.

Flatten the tortilla dough into a disc.

Cut into 8 to 10 sections (note: for thinner tortillas, go with 10..for thicker, naan-like flatbread, go with 6 to 8).

Roll each section out into a circle.

Heat a large non-stick skillet to medium-low and spray with cooking oil.

Transfer one disc of dough to the skillet and cook until it begins to puff up and bubble, about 2 to 3 minutes. Flip to the other side and continue cooking another minute or two.

Repeat for remaining dough.

Use tortillas for tacos, tostadas, enchiladas, wraps, etc!

Tips:

  • Don’t skip the part where you allow the dough to sit in a ball at room temp for 1 hour – it becomes easier to manipulate and cracks less after it sits. While the tortillas can certainly be made without allowing the dough to sit, the process goes easier when you perform this step.
  • If tortillas harden or become stale after you make them, simply zap them in the microwave for 10 to 15 seconds in a moistened paper towel to bring them back to life.

Taco time!

    Quick question–what do you think the maximum amount of time they should rest before rolling out should be?

    For example, could I prep the dough the night before, and roll them out and cook them in the morning?

      Hi Dorothy, I think that will work marvelously! You may need to allow the dough to sit for a few minutes to become more malleable after it comes out of the refrigerator, but I think your approach will work great. Enjoy!

    I made these using Pamela’s Cassava flour. Unfortunately they are a wet sopping mess and unworkable. Do specific brands of cassava flour vary that much?

      Hi Alison, I use Bob’s Red Mill Cassava Flour for the recipe, so that may be the culprit – oddly enough, I have found that Pamela’s flours don’t always translate over to my grain-free recipes, as I always use Bob’s Red Mill. There could have been another issue as well…did you make any substitutions with the liquids?

        My son made the first batch using olive oil. I made the second batch using avocado oil. Both were delicious, but we ended up using nearly twice as much flour to get the texture right. I will persevere and see if I can get my hands on some Bob’s Red Mill. Thanks!

    Success! My local health food store started carrying Bob’s. Tried it and they came together beautifully!

    Hello! I stopped using non-stick pans and am now only using stainless steel pans. I’m afraid the tortillas are going to stick to them. Any advice?

      Hi Sharon, I would try cast iron. I think they would stick to stainless, but my guess is you’d have success on cast iron 😀
