If you enjoy all the foods that involve tortillas – tacos, burritos, wraps, enchiladas, etc – but have a difficult time finding store-bought tortillas that fit your dietary restrictions, check it! -> These cassava flour tortillas are grain-free, nut-free, vegan, dairy-free, and egg-free.

PLUS they’re a real hoot to make.

Cassava flour tortilla ingredients

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.

Hello! I made this using Ottos naturals cassava flour, and I don’t know if it needed more oil or what, but they were so crumbly and hard to form! Before I purchase a different cassava flour, is there anything I can do (like add more oil) to help the consistency? Thank you!

Hi Jessica!

You can add additional oil and water until the mixture forms into a dough consistency. It's easiest to prepare the dough in a stand mixer - when mixed by hand, it can be difficult to get dough to form but when mixed in a mixer, it is much easier :D

I was kind of disappointed with the way these turned out. My buddies and I made maseca tortillas during deployment, guesstimating liquid content and using a hot plate with an old frying pan. Those turned out better than these. With all the conveniences of a modern kitchen however, these turned out crumbly and not very flexible. I used bob’s red mill cassava flour and avocado oil, so it wasn’t a substitution problem.

I keep making these! I have done them adding ground flax seeds which turned out great!

One day I wanted something chocolatey so I added some carob powder and boy were they good!

Your page is garbage. I kept trying to scroll and it would just bounce back to the top. I want to use this, but the frustration from using the page has me only wanting to leave a bad review so you can fix it.

@James Giles, Wow. There are other ways to inform someone that their site is having issues. Calling it garbage and threatening with negative reviews??

Thank you for your FREE content Julia! It's a great resource.

Hi James,

What browser are you using? Are you accessing the site through your phone or computer? I ask because I haven't been able to replicate the same thing you're describing so I want to be sure I know what is happening before I contact someone to fix it.

These are delicious! I couldn't get them too thin, I'm wondering if a tortilla press would work. I would probably use a bit less salt but otherwise they were great. I found if they broke as I was getting them into the pan I could just mend the cracks as the dough warmed and it held together well. It's nice to have a tortilla option while on AIP :)
