Tiki’s gluten free tortillas

If you’ve noticed that this year I haven’t been posting as many recipes as I did in the past, the reason is two-fold: I’ve been so busy I haven’t had much time to post recipes, and secondly, dd16 is a great cook and recipe creator, so I haven’t had her creations to share with you.  (Though dd14 has come up with a bunch of winners that I keep wishing I had time to post – she prefers the food-type recipes, and dd16 prefers baked goods and desserts.)  With dd16 back for a short while, thanks to her additional help I have more time available, and she’s busy making up fun things in the kitchen.

Here was tonight’s creation:

Tiki’s Gluten free Tortillas

  • 1/2 c. millet flour
  • 1/2 c. cornmeal
  • 1 c. potato starch
  • 2 t. xanthan gum
  • 1  1/2 t. baking powder
  • 1 t. salt
  • 3/4 c. oat milk (or milk, coconut milk, water, etc.)
  • 4 t. coconut oil

Combine dry ingredients. Heat oat milk till warm, but not bubbling. Add the warm milk and coconut oil to the dry ingredients and knead till smooth. Split dough into 8 balls and roll each one out (you may want to flour your surface with a little millet flour). Cook  tortillas in an ungreased frying pan over medium heat for 30 seconds on one side, then turn over and fry for another 30 second on the other side.

Yield: 8 tortillas

These were really tasty, not at all like what you’d expect of gluten-free tortillas!  The only problem was that she only made 22, and some of the kids would have liked more.  😛

  1. This looks terrific! Do you make millet flour or do you buy it? We’re starting to go gluten free, as well as eliminating a whole bunch of other stuff, and this doesn’t have any forbidden ingredients, so yay!

  2. I know, bad question, but you don’t soak these tortillas, right? If you wanted to add an acidic medium and let it sit, do you think it would work?
    I bought millet in the store and it “boasted” on the package “High in phytic acid!” made me wonder why it was boasting that, and made me especially think about the need to soak millet.
    I have a coffee grinder attachment on my blender- do you think it would work to make millet flour? I grind my flax seeds and chia seeds there, but haven’t tried with hard grains.
