easy paleo recipe for paleo and gluten free tortillas

Paleo & Gluten-Free Tortillas

If you’re new to paleo, you’re probably shouting, “Where’s the bread?” Yeah, I know it’s a tough craving to get over…

My hubby and I have lived without wheat bread for a year now. And honestly, it took a long time before we got past it.

This recipe is for those of you who need an occasional paleo-approved “bread” for recipes that would just not be as good without it. Think enchiladas and even a paleo burrito or soft taco. Keep in mind these tortillas include tapioca starch so I’d recommend you limit them to just the “occasional” dish to round out your paleo diet.

If you’re a paleo newbie, I also suggest you consider going on a Whole30-type diet before allowing yourself to indulge in paleo tortillas and similar recipes. (Whole30 is basically 30 consecutive days of consuming whole foods with no cheating, and no paleo-fied recipes that contain things like coconut flour or tapioca flour.) Why? Because you need time to change your mindset and discover what it feels like to fuel your body with non-inflamatory and hormone-balancing real food. It’s a great challenge that will get you on the right track – I highly recommend it.

If I never have a slice of bread again, I’ll be perfectly fine. I’m totally over wheat. I just don’t want to be the one that derails your new paleo lifestyle by introducing you to a bread-like recipe too soon.

That being said, here’s my paleo version of gluten-free tortillas. Let me say this was quite the process. But I’m really happy with how they turned out. My friend Keri from Passion for Paleo inspired me when she talked about her recipe. I played with the coconut flour, tapioca flour and coconut milk like she mentioned. I went with the same base ingredients and then experimented for a couple of days.

This recipe is the result. Soft enough to make an enchilada and they also work great as a wrap for lunch. They really are delicious! I like lettuce wraps, but these are a yummy alternative. I stored my leftover tortillas in the fridge and they held up well. Just keep them in a air tight container and you’ll have wraps ready to grab for a quick meal!

Tapioca flour can be found on the shelves of most supermarkets these days, as well as specialty stores like Whole Foods or Sprout’s, and even at Amazon.com. The best part, tapioca flour is cheap – yay!

I hope you give this easy paleo and gluten-free tortilla recipe a try and let me know what you think! If you need a little extra help preparing these, watch the quick demonstration video below the recipe.

P.S. Stay tuned for slow-cooked paleo enchiladas! My next recipe will show you how to use this quick tortilla recipe to whip up an easy and hearty paleo dish everyone in the family is sure to love. :)

    Hi Trina! Thank you so much for this recipe!
    Me and my boyfriend have been living on a gluten-free diet for over a year, and how much we’ve missed these wraps!
    Though I used gluten-free flour blend (Rice, Potato, Tapioca, Maize, Buckwheat) and semi-skimmed milk instead of coconut and tapioca flour and coconut milk, the amounts for all the ingredients were perfect, and it made lovely soft and thin tortilla wraps – unlike the dry and hard one I’ve made before! Thanks you so much again!
    Have a lovely weekend!

    I just made these. I like them but I could not get them as thin as a tortilla. They were more like a pancake. (and they were yummy with butter and honey)
    Is there something I can do to get more of a tortilla consistency?

    I really should have just waited until I went to the store (or for prime delivery from amazon), but I really wanted to try and make some of these! I substituted almond flour for the tapioca flour…as expected, without the tapioca…it practically crumbled. BUT, the flavor is really good and the technique is easy. I’ll definitely be making it again, as per directions next time though. :) thanks for the recipe, time to go check out the rest of your site!

    Hi! I’m interested in trying these wraps. I’m just wondering if I need to use a can of coconut milk or a cup of So Delicious coconut milk. I’m guessing there would be different results because of the thickness of the millks. What did you use for your recipe?

    These are great! I used them to make fish tacos and they worked really well. They are the best tortilla I have found in the primal/paleo relm. I usually just give up and do a salad, which I am sure I will still sometimes. The taste and texture of these are really versatile. I can’t wait to adapt this recipe to make crepes like you guys did in another recipe on the site. Thank you! :-)

      Hi batista,

      Felicitaciones para tratando la dieta paleo! Espero que funcione para usted. Para las tortillas, he utilizado sólo harina de coco y harina de tapioca , así que no sé si alguna otras harinas pueden estar OK con esa receta. Para otras recetas paleo, a veces se puede sustituir otras harinas de nueces como la almendra, nuez, avellana, anacardo, etc. Para paleo que necesita para evitar simplemente harina de trigo. Espero que esto ayude y buena suerte!

    My go to recipie has been the 3 ingriedient paleo naan which I have down to a science, but I will be giving these a go today along with the fajitas. I was going to double the recipie but instead think I will just make this one twice (2 cups in a can of cocomut milk) so the coconut flour doesn’t thicken the batter too much near the end.

    I haven’t eaten bread or cakes for about 6 weeks and I am always feeling hungry.

    You can make these lower carb, if you like. Carbs in milks vary quite a bit. I calculated that you could make these with canned coconut milk (depending on the brand) with about 10.5 carbs per tortilla. That’s not bad at all! I have calculated other recipes at 18 carbs for a small tortilla and 26 for a large one. If you use 40-calorie almond milk, the tortillas will be about 8.4 carbs each. Get the 30-cal almond milk, and you have lowered the carbs a tiny bit more. Tapioca flour will spike your blood sugars more than other flours, but this recipe as a whole isn’t high carb. It really is not. Since my dd is a diabetic celiac, we calculate carbs; we don’t restrict them. I do have to be very aware of carbs and glycemic indexes. Based on what I know, I’m excited to try this with coconut milk. It sounds tasty and healthy. We can also make and freeze some with almond milk for a slightly different taste. I am sure that the small amount of coconut flour won’t hurt the taste, but it does reduce the glycemic spike. Nice!

    I found the tapioca starch for under $4 at Sprouts. I just noticed that it is good for Gluten-free diets, but, not low-carb. I am more on “the low-carb while trying to go Paleo” diet. I read hazelnut and almond flour both do well, so, I am trying those. Any feedback regarding this from anyone who has tried to make them low-carb would be appreciated.

    OMGsh! Delicous! These are fantastic! I am not necessarily doing paleo, so, I added a fresh roasted green chili and some melted cheddarjack cheese and rolled it up. Great texture! Delicous. So much better than any store-bought or even any other homemade tortilla I have eaten. I cannot wait to try it with other fillings. Keep temp Med to Med-low or it will create ugly bubbles. I had to whisk out some lumps – I probably did something wrong in the mixing, Otherwise, I followed recipe to the letter. YUMMY!

    Can someone explain to me how tapioca flour is paleo? It’s higher in carbs and lower in fiber than wheat flour. This doesn’t feel like a smart substitution to me. I understand that we try to make “bread” products out of a lot of things that aren’t normally in bread, but these don’t feel like they’re truly paleo to me with all those high glycemic carbs.

      Hi Sara…tapioca flour is gluten free and toxin free, which makes it an acceptable paleo cooking ingredient for most people. But you’re right, it is higher in carbs and lower in fiber compared to something like coconut flour. So if you’re glucose sensitive or just want to cut back on the carbs, you wouldn’t want to eat too many of these tortillas, or just skip this recipe altogether :)

    i didn’t have tapioca flour, so i used almond flour. my first tortilla broke apart when i tried to flip it. i decided to oil a cookie sheet, and i put the broiler on. i poured the batter into a thin sheet, broiled it until the top looked crispy. i broke it into 6 pieces, flipped them, then broiled the other side. they came out perfect except that they were not round.

      Hi Kris…sorry about your celiac…hopefully you’re under a smart physician’s care for that and staying away from wheat proteins. As for your rice and corn allergies, real paleo recipes avoid those grains because they can cause digestive problems. So if your gluten-free recipes call for those ingredients, I suggest you switch to paleo recipes instead! And finally to answer your original question, I haven’t tried to make these tortillas with regular milk so I honestly don’t know if they’d turn out or not. And just so you know, most paleo recipes avoid dairy ingredients as well!

    I am so happy to have found this recipe :-) I made them tonight and they are the closest to an actual flour tortilla that I have come across. I guess they are more like a crape but works for me. I want them to make sandwich wraps and think they will work fine for them. I made burritos tonight. Took me a couple of them to get the cooking right. I also replaced the Coconut flour with Rice flour as I am allergic to coconut. I don’t think it made much of difference and the taste is awesome. Question though… I found them just a little too greasy.I only used cooking spray in my pan. If I left out the oil would that mess them up?

    Made these tonight and they ended up more like crepes (delicious ones!) but not like the thin store-bought tortillas I was hoping for. I added xanthan gum, so maybe that is why I had that problem, but the recipe is definitely yummy. I won’t be able to use them for quesadillas like I was hoping but definitely for other types of wraps or desserts.

      Hi Julia! Thanks for your comment. Yes, they are more crepe like. I try really hard to keep all the ingredients to my recipes easy so people aren’t scared away. I was trying for a less eggy wrap than I had tried with other recipes. I’m happy with the result but agree they aren’t quite like the tortillas were used to from the grocery stores. That would require far more ingredients and probably not Paleo friendly. I appreciate your kind words. Thanks so much for stopping by. :)

    I am new to the Paleo concept and landed on your site. I just tried your tortilla recipe but with low fat coconut milk. Oh YUM! what a great transition from wheat bread. thank you!
    I look forward to trying many more recipes.

    Hi Trina, I’m keen to try this recipe with the aim of finding something that could be used for wheat-free “tortilla” baskets. Have you tried baking these tortillas yet in moulded form? Any suggestions would be most appreciated. Thanks. Marguerite

      Hi Marguerite, I have not baked or tried to mold these tortillas so I can’t tell you how it would work. If you try it please let me know how it goes. :)

    Made these tonight. They brown nicely and look great. They are flexible and moist like a crepe, but they are not oily or eggy. They did not rip. They are filling and work great with the avocado tuna recipe. The whole family really liked it. Thank you!

      Staci, thank you so much! I’m glad your family enjoyed them. I really appreciate you stopping by to comment. It’s a super easy alternative to tortillas.

    Made these tonight. They browned nicely and looked delicious. The texture has more of a crepe feel to it. They are moist and flexible and they are not oil sponges. I made them with the tuna. My 14 year old ate a ton and wants to eat it again. The wraps would be good used in enchiladas, breakfast wraps, or with toppings, like a crepe. Thank you!

      I’m glad your family enjoyed them. They are kinda like a crepe, but thicker. I agree, they are very versatile. I really appreciate your comment and taking the time to stop by!

    Has anyone tried to see how long they last in the Fridge? Its going on almost 2 1/2 weeks and they still look good.

      Stefani, I would not go past 1 week. If you want to keep them longer, you can freeze with a paper towel between each tortilla in a freezer bag. They thaw out fine. :)

      Kevin, I haven’t tried them with almond flour. I was trying for a texture close to tortillas. If you try it, let me know how it works out. I’m planning on working with this recipe more in the future. :)

    This is great, I am looking forward to making these. I have 8 kids and so finding things I can make myself will be great. My son may have celiac disease, we find out in April, and he could live off of tortillas. I am taking the whole family paleo”ish” with the focus on losing the gluten and grains, not so much the starch though. I love when I can find recipes that will mimic some of my sons favorite foods. I two questions: #1 is Tapioca starch the same as tapioca flour? I have the tapioca starch here at home. I am just getting into these new types of ingredients. 😉 #2 any ideas on what the carbs might be on one of these babies? My hubby is type 1 diabetic, been paleo”ish” since December and doing great. I am trying cauliflower wraps for him, but not sure he will like those as much. We do like tacos here at the house since its an easy cheap meal for my large family.

      Shari, you are one busy lady! Wow. 😉 I had a hard time with two kids! To answer your questions, 1. Tapioca flour and tapioca starch are the same. It depends on where you buy then and the manufacturer.
      2. Tapioca flour is fairly high in carbs. Not as much as in rice flours, but definitely not a good as coconut or almond flour. I chose tapioca for this recipe because I wanted the texture. We only make them once in a while, when we have an an occasional taco or enchilada.
      Hope this helps. Thanks for checking out our site! :)

        I finally made these, made them twice actually, once with tapioca flour and once with arrow root powder. One thing I am finding is the batter seems gritty, which in turn makes the wrap a bit gritty. They are good, but I must be doing something wrong. I think its the coconut flour that is getting gritty, and it all sinks to the bottom of the bowl. I am using my homemade coconut flour from my coconut milk pulp, can’t afford store bought CO flour. Any suggestions? Oh and usually my coconut milk is made fresh right before getting ready to make the wraps, I use The Paleo Mom’s recipe.

          Shari, I think it must be your coconut flour. No one else has commented on a gritty texture or it sinking to the bottom of the bowl. I admire that you’re making your own flour and milk. That’s awesome! Maybe you can find a way to make the flour a more fine texture? I’m not sure as I have not made coconut flour before.

    I made a double batch of these using a can of coconut cream from Trader Joe’s. It made 10 crapes/tortillas and we filled them with Pear mango compote and drizzled honey and sprinkled cinnamon. Yummy!

    Been doing whole 30/paleo for about a year and half. in my past, if I had allowed myself I would have eaten bread or tortillas with every meal. Made these tonight and they were not only EASY but very tasty. I travel on business and have found sticking to the plan proves to be challenging when on the road. This will definitely help with the challenge. I have to say that your website is my “go to site” when looking for recipes. I have yet to be disappointed in anything I have made!
    Thanks so much!

      Hi Janet! What a great review of the tortillas! I waited a year before I made them because I needed to be sure I was off the bread train. And like you, these prove to be nice for the occasional wrap or enchilada. I like your idea of taking them when traveling as well! Thank you so much for stopping by to comment. I really appreciate it! :)

    Are you able to freeze these? Or how long can I refridgerate them for. I like to cook and plan for the week or sometimes two at a time.

    Through research this morning I am finding different info on tapioca flour versus tapioca starch. They both seem incredibly high in carbs and I was wondering if you knew how it rates on the glycemic scale? If it is high, do you know of a good substitute? Thanks

    Trina, these were amazing! I was finally able to make and eat quesadillas! To be honest I also took the first one I made and spread organic raspberry jam on it and rolled it and ate it. I haven’t had a crepe in a year now and it was soooo good! Shout out to passion for paleo for bringing this recipe up on her Facebook page

      Kim, I’m so glad you liked them as much as I did! Keri from Passion for Paleo is a inspiration to me in more ways than one. All I had to do was play with her ingredients and, bam! My hubby smothered his first one in honey, so I get you’re excitement. We were happy here too! Thanks for you’re comment! :)

    Hi Esther! Yes they are a soft tortilla. It’s a delicate balance with this recipe. I was going for a non “eggy” texture but soft enough to roll. I like to cook them until they are browned on both sides. They do resemble a crepe except thicker, and they keep their soft texture. :)

    Trina, yours look so thin. Mine were more puffy and really moist inside I tried to add a bit of water to thin it out, but it still came out thick.

    Lucie, I’m not sure what is going on. Maybe the pan was too hot and the mixture could not spread out? I’m sorry I can’t be more helpful. If you try them again and have a problem, send me a message with a picture. Maybe I can see what you saying give better advice.
