Coconut Flour Tortillas

Pliable Coconut Flour Tortilla

Coconut Mama’s Coconut Flour Tortilla

Coconut Mama’s recipe moniker is a bit misleading, but these Coconut Flour Tortillas are fantastic for Burritos and Sandwich Wraps.   It’s so easy to make these tasty & pliable Tortillas. I’m holding one, ready to fill it with Chicken Salad,  Fajita or Taco Mix.  You can add Vanilla to this versatile batter to make Dessert Crepes too.

Tiffany makes 8″ Tortillas, cooking both sides till golden brown.  I ladle enough batter to cover a 9″ crepe pan on medium heat.  I  cook them just long enough so I can flip them, then lower the heat to finish the other side.  Both sides are light with toasted Flax Seed Meal flecks.

Cool on wire racks and separate the Tortillas with wax paper or parchment paper.  If you don’t use them all, place them in a bag or container in the fridge.

GF Yorkshire Pudding

GF1YorkieJamie Oliver’s recipe piqued my interest as it had two types of Rice Flour and special ingredient, Pectin.  I found GF Yorkshire Pudding a great gluten free replacement for the old Joy of Cooking standby.   I’ve great big Yorkies using a large muffin tin, but for that WOW Factor, I used this Chicago Metallic Professional 6 Cup Popover Pan with Armor-Glide Coating.

If it gets hectic in the kitchen and can’t be bothered to turn down the oven twice as Jamie suggests, setting the Yorkies at 450 degrees for 20 minutes works as long as the oil is smokin’ hot when you start.

TIPS

  • Make the batter a day in advance, otherwise, several hours in advance.
    • Check out the Science of Yorkies complete with the Why and the Pictures of the baking results using different types of milk, batter temperatures etc.
  • Heat the Oil for 5 minutes before you add the batter.  It should bubble up…if not, you may have to increase the baking time
  • Pierce the Yorkies with a toothpick if you cannot serve them right away.  It lets the steam escape without collapsing.
  • Use your choice of Milk, Unsweetened Almond Milk or Coconut Milk
