Why These are the BEST Keto Tortillas Recipe

I have always been a tortilla fan and this keto tortilla recipe is no exception.

You may know I have a range of keto wraps premix products. And, you may also know I am a big lover of Mexican cuisine. So, it was important for me to create some great tortillas to go with it. I love this recipe for so many reasons!

Versatile – these low carb tortillas can be used for keto wraps, sandwiches, toasties, enchiladas, soft tacos and so much more! They make low carb lunches so simple too!

Low carb – the tortillas are very low carb at only 1g net carbs per serve.

Everyday ingredients – Made with everyday ingredients found in most supermarkets. I am always getting asked to create more keto recipes using supermarket ingredients.

Quick and easy – ready in under 30 minutes! So easy to make!

Gluten-free – honestly the best gluten-free tortilla recipe you will ever try. I make these every day and they truly are amazing!

Thermomix friendly – these keto tortillas can be mixed easily in your ThermomixMagimix or food processor in no time and with very little cleanup.

Key Ingredients in Keto Tortillas

Scroll to the bottom of this post for the amount of each ingredient needed to make these insanely good keto tortillas.

These low carb tortillas are super simple to make. With easy to source supermarket ingredients you can make your own keto tortillas way cheaper and cleaner than the supermarket options.

Almond flour or meal – this forms the base of the keto almond flour tortillas. I do have some substitutes below in the FAQs if you require the tortilla recipe to be nut-free.

Apple cider vinegar – do NOT leave out this ingredient. Apple cider vinegar helps to strengthen the dough and give the “stretch” you know so well in everyday tortillas.

Xanthan Gum – helps to bind and hold the wraps together. I have tested with chia flour as a replacement. It works but is nowhere near as good so I haven’t added it as an alternative.

Egg – the egg should be at room temperature, fresh and pasture-raised (if possible). Cold egg will give the tortillas an eggy-taste. The egg can be replaced with 40g of avocado for an egg-free keto tortilla.

Coconut flour – I promise at this amount you don’t taste it or smell it. The coconut flour adds extra flexibility to the wraps.

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1. Place all ingredients into a food processor or large bowl. Mix until it becomes a firm dough. It is important to mix until evenly combined and no linger stocky before turning out to knead and cut into portions.

Step 2. Knead the dough until smooth. Cut the dough into 8 pieces and allow it to rest for 10-15 minutes.

Step 3. Roll out each piece of dough between two sheets of baking paper (about 2 mm thick). Use a tortilla ring or a 16cm side plate to cut the tortillas into shape. Remove the trimmings and set aside (these will create enough dough for another tortilla – a total of 9 x 16 cm diameter tortillas from this mixture).

Step 4. Cook over medium-low heat in a dry pan, 10-15 seconds each side until lightly cooked (the longer you cook or the higher the heat the more you will dry out the tortillas). Transfer to a clean towel and wrap to keep warm and soft. Repeat with the remaining tortillas.

HOT TIP! Cook only until lightly bubbled and flecked. Do not overcook or you will end up with crispy keto tortillas!

What to serve with Keto Tortillas

I love our keto tortillas with just about anything. Keto soups, stews, chili or even a salad. Here are just a few of our easy keto meals that the low carb tortillas are perfect for.

Substitutions and FAQs

What is the lowest carb tortilla you can buy?

The lowest carb tortillas on the market are possibly my Mad Creations Soft Wrap Premix. At only 1.1g net carbs per serve and clean keto ingredients, they are a great choice.

How can I use instead of taco shells on a keto diet?

To make these tortillas into a taco shell hang the over a taco shell rack or over 2 rings of the oven shelves and bake at 160°C until crisp and lightly golden. Remove and allow to cool before filling.

Can I make these nut-free?

You can make these nut free. You will need to increase the coconut flour to 75g and add 40g of sesame flour or sunflour. Also add an extra 2 tablespoons of water to the mixture as the coconut flour is very thirsty.

Can the dough be frozen or rolled as needed?

You can roll the dough and cook as needed. The dough can also be frozen and thawed in the fridge overnight before use.

This recipe yields approximately 9 servings. The actual number of servings will depend on your preferred portion sizes. 
To calculate the weight of one serving, prepare the recipe as instructed. Weigh the finished recipe, then divide the weight of the finished recipe by 9. The result will be the weight of one serving. 
Nutritional values shown are guidelines only. They are for 1 serving using the ingredients listed. Actual macros may vary slightly depending on the brands and types of ingredients used. 
I do not use weight per portion for the nutritional as it would require exacting ingredients and uniform tortillas and ingredients distribution in each tortilla e.g. does each low carb tortilla have the exact thickness etc. This is why recipes are based on the ingredients used and divided into portions as a rough guide only!
All recipes have been tested using all of the cooking methods included by various recipe testers.

    I made these into crackers by adding 1 t Italian seasoning and 2 t baking powder. I divided the dough into 8 balls, and pressed them out with the tortilla press. I brushed the tops with melted butter, and cut them into triangles with a pizza cutter. Baked at 350*F (not C!) for 20 min, then left them in the off-oven for 25 min. Very delicious! Thank you so much, Megan!

    I absolutely love these tortillas and they have been a game changer for my husband and I. Much better and lower card than the store bought low carb tortillas. I have a question on the ingredients though. When I change from metric to US Customary, the recipe changes the amount of each ingredient that goes into the recipe. For example, in metric, it calls for 1.5 cups of almond flour but in US Customary, it calls for 1.75 cups. I’ve been weighing my ingredients but my dough is sticky when I do that. It is dry enough to handle after I’ve let it sit for 10-15 minutes so I’m not worried but wondering if I were to use cups to measure, which recipe I should follow?

    • Megan Mad Creations Hub says:

      Hi Sukhi, thank you sooo much for your enquiry. The convertor for some reason was incorrect on most of the measures for US conversions. I have now corrected them all. The dough should now be only a little bit sticky after first mixing it and before you cut the dough and leave to rest for 10-15 minutes. The previous measures were an original recipe I created earlier but changed the measures to reflect all our years of testing. I am sure you will find the dough much easier to use and you will love them even more. Personally, I think these are even better than full carb wheat flour tortillas so I hope the amended measures are good for you too x

    These are so easy to make and are simply perfect for any kind of wrap or tortilla that you might need. So versatile! I keep a stash in the freezer for a quick lunch option or to make a Mexican tortilla stack for dinner. They are very yummy as well.

    Oh so easy to make. I find it has quite a nutral taste so will go with any sauce. Texture is excellent, al dente. Made it into fetucini today and tomorrow lasagne sheets for the freezer. Megan, another fantastic recipe.

  • Celin says:

    How about inside the tortilla what the engri.?

  • Becky says:

    These are the best tortillas I’ve found since keto. Because I prefer the β€œcorn” tortilla over the flour tortilla, I added 1 1/2 teaspoons of Amoretti Sweet Corn W.S. Extract #577. This adds 5.4g carbs to the 9 tortillas. So I think that’s about 0.6g carbs per tortilla.
    Thank you for the recipe!

    • Megan Mad Creations Hub says:

      You are very welcome Becky. I have seen the corn extract but have not tried it yet.

  • Nancy says:

    Bravo Megan! These are the best keto tortillas I have found. Easy and tasty. They are not dry and do not fall apart. Love this recipe! Thank you, thank you, thank you! πŸ™‚

    Just made these last night and they taste very good. Maybe we did something wrong but they are not very pliable or flexible. Is there some way to make them more flexible like a real tortilla? After I cook them and as they started to cool they became stiff and would crack and break if bent into a taco shape.

    • Megan Mad Creations Hub says:

      They are definitely pliable and soft. It sounds like you overcooked or cooked at too high a temp. they only need a short time on the heat.

  • Marilyn says:

    Your demo video says 8 pieces, the recipe says 9 pieces.
    Please clarify. Thanks

    • Megan Mad Creations Hub says:

      Hi Marilyn, yes there are 9. You break it into 8 pieces and roll. With each tortilla cut to shape there are trimmings and that makes number 9. I have made mention of this in the instructions for making as well.
