Tortillas - Lower Carb, High Protein and Fiber

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour

  • 3/4 cup Low Carb Barely Barley Flour

  • ½ TSP salt

  • 3 TBL vegetable oil

  • 1  + 1-2 TBL  very hot water

  • ¾ tsp baking powder

Directions:

  1. Sift the flour, salt & baking powder into a large mixing bowl.

  2. Into the dry ingredients add oil, & mix with your fingertips to combine.

  3. Add the hot water, working the liquid into the dough until a sticky ball forms.

  4. Wrap in plastic and let rest for at least 30 minutes.

  5. Divide the dough into 8-10 balls (for small size) or 6-8 balls for larger ones, cover them again with the damp cloth.

  6. Lightly dust a counter with flour & roll out each ball of dough into a circle or oval approximately 1/4" thick. If you want nicely rounded wraps, trim off any ragged edges & discard. Don't roll the dough out more than once or the dough will be tough.

  7. Heat a dry griddle or heavy skillet over medium high heat for 5 minutes. Cook the flat bread for 15-20 seconds on each side or until the dough looks dry & slightly wrinkled & a few brown spots form on both surfaces. Do not over cook or they will be hard. Wrap in  kitchen towel to keep warm as you cook the other breads.
