  • 240 grams or 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 120 ml or 1/2 cup lukewarm water


  • In a medium-sized bowl, combine whole wheat flour, baking powder and sea salt. Add olive oil and lukewarm water, 1-2 tablespoons at a time, until the dough can be formed into an elastic ball.
  • Divide the dough into 10 balls (for tacos or into 5 balls for burritos, etc). Roll each ball on a flour-dusted surface into a circle.
  • Set a frying pan (or several pans) over medium-high heat and fry each tortilla for 40 seconds-1 minute each side, until puffy. Enjoy!


You can easily freeze these whole wheat tortillas for later. Just defrost them in your microwave before using.
