Low Carb Tortillas for everything…
These Low Carb Tortillas are a game changer for us. And definitely part of The Diet That Changed My Life. Yes, homemade tortillas can be time consuming, but they are only 1g net carb per tortilla! Once you get a comfortable making them on your own you will whip them out in no time at all. I made a silly little video in my kitchen making these tortillas for you to see how easy these can be.
Replacing the Carb Base in your meal
Notice the next time you order ANYTHING at a restaurant that there is base. The base is the filler, the cheap stuff. Bread, pasta, iceberg lettuce, potato, rice, french fries, croutons. It’s the cheap and mostly carby stuff. If a restaurant can fill your plate with fluff it makes you feel like you’re getting A LOT of food for your money. But you are also getting several hundred carbs per plate that will be stored as fat if you’re not a marathoner. The protein and the fat and the freshies tend to be the much more expensive part of the meal.

I’m adding these articles here, because they are huge part of my journey. Some of what I have gone through you may resonate with. Let me know if any of these hits home for you…
Compared to the store bought versions on the grocery shelf at 6g net carb per serving these low carb tortillas have only 1g net carb each. Lower carbs per tortilla makes it easier to meet your macros and enjoy the fat and protein. These Low Carb Tortillas will stay fresh in your fridge for up to a week when you wrap them in a paper towel and then place in a ziploc bag.
Wraps, Lasagna or Enchiladas
I brought my own tortillas to my favorite restaurant, Los Arroyos Solvang, to eat this AMAZING dish called Molcajete!
The other thing I love about these Low Carb Tortillas is that they don’t taste like anything. I know that sounds weird, but most low carb ANYTHING usually takes on an egg taste. My wraps take on the taste of whatever you put in them. I have made several types of enchiladas and even lasagna with these tortillas and we are never disappointed. You can use these wraps with my Thai Peanut Sauce and Bacon Wraps or just with some deli meat, cheese and mayo for a quick and easy keto friendly lunch.
Crunched on time?
If you are crunched on time or simply do not have the kitchen skills then Mission brand tortillas are the next best option. They are not totally cheap, but they are quick, easy and taste good. If you want to buy them in bulk because they have a very long shelf life, you can get ready made tortillas here at a bulk discount.
If you are up for the minor challenge of making Low Carb Tortillas then get started below. I made a silly little short video of me making the tortillas that you can watch HERE.
- ⅓ cup coconut flour
- 1 ½ cup egg whites liquid
- ¼ tsp baking powder
- ½ cup water to thin
- coconut oil spray
- 7 ” non-stick fry pan
Spray pan with cooking spray and set over medium heat. Quickly mix together all ingredients. Mixture should be watery.
While holding the handle of the small fry pan, pour in about ¼ cup of the watery mixture into the center of the pan and swirl pan handle to coat entire bottom of the fry pan with the mixture. Let cook 2-3 minutes on medium heat.
With a silicone spatula gently lift all around the edges of the tortilla to loosen from the pan. The center of the tortilla may still seem wet…let it continue to cook while watching. Do not force the tortilla up from the pan.
Eventually the tortilla will be ready and as you slide the spatula under the tortilla it will slide around enough to almost spin around in the pan…this is when you will take the spatula and flip the tortilla to cook the other side. You want some gentle browning on both sides, so you may want to flip it back and forth until you reach desired doneness.
Use as a you would a small tortilla or small wrap.
