Ingredients

What You Need to Make These 2 Ingredient Keto Tortillas?

To make these 2 Ingredient Keto Tortillas with Almond Flour and Psyllium Husk, you will need the following simple ingredients:

  • 1 cup Almond Flour (100g, 4oz): Almond flour is a keto-friendly flour that is made from ground almonds. It is high in protein, healthy fats, and fiber and low in net carbs. It also gives the tortillas a nutty and slightly sweet flavor. You can buy almond flour online or in most grocery stores, or you can make your own by blending whole almonds in a food processor until they reach a fine consistency. Make sure to use blanched almond flour, which has the skins removed, as it will result in a smoother and lighter texture for your tortillas. You can read more about almond flour here!
  • 3 tablespoons Whole Psyllium Husk (40g, 12.4oz): Psyllium husk is a keto-friendly fiber supplement that is made from the husks of the seeds of the plantago plant. It is high in soluble fiber, which helps to lower blood sugar and cholesterol levels, improve digestion, and prevent constipation. It also helps to make the tortillas more pliable and elastic and adds some texture and flavor to them. You can buy psyllium husk online or in most health food stores, or you can use psyllium husk powder, which is more finely ground and easier to mix. Make sure to use whole psyllium husk or psyllium husk powder, not psyllium seed powder, as they have different properties and effects. Also, make sure to use organic and unflavored psyllium husk, as some brands may contain additives or sweeteners that are not keto-friendly. You can read more about Psyllium Husk here!
  • 1 cup Warm Water (240ml): Warm water is needed to hydrate the psyllium husk and form a dough with the almond flour. You can use tap water or filtered water, as long as it is warm but not boiling. The temperature of the water should be around 40°C or 104°F, which is slightly warmer than body temperature. You can use a thermometer to measure the temperature, or you can use your finger to test it. If the water feels comfortable and not too hot or cold, then it is ready to use. You may need to adjust the amount of water depending on the type and brand of almond flour and psyllium husk you use, as they may absorb water differently. Start with 1 cup of water and add more or less as needed to get a smooth and pliable dough.

These are the only ingredients you need to make these 2 Ingredient Keto Tortillas with Almond Flour and Psyllium Husk. However, you can also add some herbs and spices to make them more flavourful, such as chili flakes, garlic powder, parsley, basil, or mixed Italian herbs. Let your creativity take over and experiment as much as you want.

Instructions

To make these 2 Ingredient Low Carb Tortillas with Almond Flour and Psyllium Husk, you will need to follow these simple steps:

  • Step 1: In a large mixing bowl, add the dry ingredients 1 cup of almond flour and 3 tablespoons of whole psyllium husks. Mix them well with a fork or a whisk, until they are well combined and no lumps remain.
  • Step 2: Gradually add 1 cup of warm water to the bowl, while stirring with a spatula or a wooden spoon. The warm water will activate the psyllium husk and it will expand, creating a dough-like consistency. You may need to adjust the amount of water depending on the type and brand of almond flour and psyllium husk you use, as they may absorb water differently. Start with 1 cup of water and add more or less as needed to get a smooth and pliable dough ball.
  • Step 3: If you are using psyllium husk powder rather than whole psyllium husk, half the amount you use. For example, this recipe calls for 3 tablespoons of whole psyllium husk. You can use 1.5 tablespoons of psyllium husk powder instead. Psyllium husk powder is more finely ground and easier to mix, but it also absorbs more water and makes the dough more sticky. You may need to add more almond flour or less water to get the right texture.
  • Step 4: Let the keto tortilla dough sit for 5 minutes, to allow the psyllium husk to fully hydrate and the dough to become more elastic and firm.
  • Step 5: Preheat a non-stick pan over medium- heat. Spray some olive oil or coconut oil on the pan, to prevent the tortillas from sticking.
  • Step 6: Divide the dough into 2 equal parts and shape them into balls. Place one ball of dough between two sheets of parchment paper and flatten it with your hands or a rolling pin, creating a tortilla shape. You can make the tortillas as thin or as thick as you like, but keep in mind that the thinner they are, the faster they will cook and the crispier they will be. The thicker they are, the longer they will cook and the softer they will be. You can also use a plate or a bowl to cut out a perfect circle shape for your tortillas if you prefer.
  • Step 7: Carefully peel off the top piece of parchment paper and flip the tortilla onto the hot pan. Peel off the other sheet of parchment paper and cook the tortilla for about 2 to 3 minutes per side or until golden and slightly bubbly. Flip the tortilla with a spatula and cook the other side for another 2 to 3 minutes, or until done. Repeat the same process with the other ball of dough.
  • Step 8: Enjoy your 2 Ingredient Keto Tortillas with Almond Flour and Psyllium Husk. You can fill them with your keto-friendly favorite toppings, such as cheese, eggs, bacon, chicken, beef, avocado, lettuce, tomato, salsa, sour cream, etc. You can also store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days, or in the freezer for up to 3 months. To reheat them, you can microwave them for a few seconds, or toast them in a pan or an oven.

FAQ

You may have some questions about these 2 Ingredient Keto Tortillas with Almond Flour and Psyllium Husk, such as how to make them, store them, or use them. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions and their answers:

Q: Can I use xanthan gum instead of psyllium husk? 

A: Xanthan gum is another keto-friendly ingredient that can help to bind and thicken the tortillas. However, it has a different texture and flavor than psyllium husk, and it may make the tortillas more gummy and sticky. I personally wouldn’t recommend using xanthan gum for this tortilla recipe. 

Q: Do I need a tortilla press to make these tortillas? 

A: No, you don’t need a tortilla press to make these tortillas. You can use your hands or a rolling pin to flatten the dough between two sheets of parchment paper. You can also use a plate or a bowl to cut out a perfect circle shape for your tortillas if you prefer. A tortilla press is a nice tool to have, but not essential for this recipe.

Q: Should I use room temperature or cold water to make these tortillas?

A: You should use warm water to make these tortillas, as it will help to activate the psyllium husk and form a dough with the almond flour. The temperature of the water should be around 40°C or 104°F, which is slightly warmer than body temperature. You can use a thermometer to measure the temperature, or you can use your finger to test it. If the water feels comfortable and not too hot or cold, then it is ready to use. 

Q: Are these tortillas keto-friendly?

A: Yes, these tortillas are keto-friendly, as they are low in net carbs, gluten-free, and grain-free. They are also high in fiber, protein, and healthy fats, which are beneficial for a keto diet. One tortilla has only 2 g net carbs (you will find the full nutritional information below the recipe carb). You can enjoy these tortillas as part of your keto meal or snack, and fill them with your favorite keto-friendly ingredients, such as cheese, eggs, bacon, chicken, beef, avocado, lettuce, tomato, salsa, sour cream, etc. However, as with any food, moderation is key, and you should always track your macros and calories to make sure you stay within your keto goals.

Q: How can I store these tortillas?

A: You can store these tortillas in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days, or in the freezer for up to 3 months. To reheat them, you can microwave them for a few seconds, or toast them in a pan or an oven. You can also cut them into triangles and bake them in the oven to make crunchy tortilla chips, which are great for dipping or snacking. You can also add some nacho cheese powder or other seasonings to make them more flavourful.

Q: What is the best way to make these tortillas crispy?

A: If you like your tortillas crispy, you can make them thinner and cook them longer, until they are golden and slightly bubbly. You can also bake them in the oven or air fryer, after cutting them into triangles, to make them crunchy. You can also use almond meal instead of almond flour, which has a coarser texture and gives the tortillas more crunch. However, an almond meal has more net carbs than almond flour, so you may need to adjust your macros accordingly.

Q: Are these low carb tortillas vegan?

A: Yes, these keto tortillas are vegan, as they do not use any animal products or by-products. They are made with almond flour, psyllium husk, and water, which are all plant-based and vegan-friendly ingredients. You can enjoy these tortillas as part of your vegan keto diet, and fill them with your favorite vegan keto-friendly ingredients, such as vegan cheese, tofu, tempeh, seitan, mushrooms, spinach, avocado, salsa, vegan sour cream, etc.

I hope these FAQs help you to make and enjoy these 2 Ingredient Keto Tortillas with Almond Flour and Psyllium Husk. If you have any other questions, please let me know.
