A quick and easy homemade keto and grain free tortilla inspired by traditional Mexican tortilla recipes, made with just a few simple ingredients.
These tortillas are tender, pliable and soft while the hard taco shells are crisp and have a convenient flat bottom. The soft tortillas are versatile and can be used for a variety of Texan, south western or Mexican dishes such as quesadillas, tacos, burritos, tostadas, and Mexican pizza.
As well, use these soft tortillas to make your favorite sandwich wraps. This nutrient dense recipe is also perfect for vegan diets.

Clearly, there are many diet plans in the world. The sheer volume of diet options is ridiculously overwhelming.
So once you’ve made your choice, and it’s time to start menu planning, you want to avoid looking outside of your chosen diet for meal options. Wavering could be detrimental to your weight loss success. You may just find yourself needing to start over from scratch.
You’d be well served, for this very reason, to build up an online library of recipes within your chosen plan. So if you’ve chosen the ketogenic diet as your weight loss method, for example, then you ONLY want those types of recipes in your library… and nothing else.
The importance of this cannot be overstated.
I’ve been guilty of hopping from one plan to the next myself, which is why I bring this up. And I’ve done so for one simply reason…
On a low-carb diet, you tend to crave carbs. On low-sugar, you crave sweets. If the person on the screen tells you it’s healthy, you should probably eat it, yeah? And let’s call a spade a spade… Food-based videos are, in many cases, pretty darn irresistible. 😉
Choose a lifestyle that you’re thrilled to stick with. That’s how long-term results will be achieved. Reaching your weight loss goals may be as simple as eating natural foods and limiting your caloric intake.
Seems like pretty responsible advice. Don’t pig out all day, steer clear of prepackaged junk, and you should see some pretty powerful results. Oh, and move that body of yours a little more! 😉
This is surely the most popular weight loss model in existence. And it probably has that designation for a reason!
Of course, not all diet plans follow this model. And even if they don’t, you may want to stick with them anyway. With some diets, macro-nutrient ratios are more important than calories consumed. It could be detrimental to your results to stray from your diet’s particular ratio.
Stick to the plan. Give yourself a fighting chance!

To you at your very best,
115 g (1 1/4 cups)
30 g (3 tbsp)
80 g (3/4 cup)
golden flaxseed meal
12 g (2 tbsp)
whole psyllium husks
6 g (1 tsp)
10 g (1 tbsp)
240 g (1 cup) warm water
41 g (3 tbsp) coconut oil – melted
1. Preheat the oven to 200 C or 400 F
2. Place all the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl
3. Whisk together until all ingredients are well combined
4. Pour the water into the bowl and stir with the dry mixture until well combined
5. Add the melted coconut oil and mix to combine
6. Knead the dough and form into a ball. Let rest 30 to 60 minutes before using
7. Divide the dough into 6 or 8 balls. Place on a silicone mat or parchment lined work surface, flatten dough ball and cover with a layer of parchment paper. Use a rolling pin to roll dough to a thin layer
8. Use a pot lid or plate to press out the shape (see FYI for sizes) and remove ragged perimeter
Tortillas: Oven method for all sizes
9. Place/leave tortillas on silicone mat or parchment paper and slide onto a baking sheet. Place in middle position of oven and bake for 8 – 10 minutes until golden
10. Remove from oven but leave on silicone mat/parchment paper until cooled to room temperature
11. Place cooled tortilla on plate and repeat until you have all the tortillas baked
Tortillas: Skillet method
12. Place a dry skillet over medium heat and, when hot, place 1 tbsp of unsalted butter to coat the skillet
13. When butter is beginning to sizzle, place the tortilla in the skillet and fry for 1 to 2 minutes on the first side until the bottom appears done and has light brown patches
14. Use a wide spatula and flip the tortilla. Fry for 1 to 2 minutes until done
15. Remove from skillet and place on a plate to cool. Repeat until you have made all your tortillas
Hard Taco Shells
16. Preheat the oven to 200 C or 400 F
17. Follow directions in steps 1 to 8 but use a small lid, with a 15 cm or 6 in diameter for cut outs
18. Cut out pieces of parchment paper, just a bit bigger than your hard taco shells. Place the parchment onto the rungs of the oven rack to cover 3 rungs. Press to crease into position (this will make it easier to place the dough on top)
19. Place the taco shell cut out so that the center is over the three rungs lined with parchment and the sides hang down on either side. Repeat to hang the rest of the taco shells, about 4 – 6 per time
20. Place rack just one or two rungs above center and bake for about 10 – 12 minutes
21. Before removing rack from oven, set up 4 tall glasses as a stand for the oven rack. Remove the rack from the oven and place onto the glasses so that the bottoms of the shells are not touching the surface of your counter
22. Leave in this position until completely cooled and shells have hardened
23. If still a bit soft place crumpled aluminum tube or small containers to keep the opening from collapsing in and narrowing.
Hard Taco Cups
24. Repeat steps 1 to 8
25. Preheat the oven to 200 C or 400 F
26. Use a small lid or large cookie ring to make cut outs
27. Using a silicone muffin pan or parchment lined metal muffin pan, place the tortilla cut outs over the bottoms of the muffin pan cups and press into shape
28. Place in the oven in middle rack position and bake for 10 to 12 minutes
29. Remove and place pan onto the counter and let cups cool completely before removing
