Clean Eating Spelt Flour Tortillas Recipe

Clean Eating Spelt Flour Tortillas Recipe - whip these up in minutes with just flour, salt, oil and water. These can be used as pizza, low carb pizza crusts, wraps, etc.

Our family has probably eaten thousands of these spelt tortillas over the years.  They are great plain, cooked in oil in the frying pan, as a thin pizza crust, as quesadillas, toasted with cinnamon & sugar, as a sandwich wrap, and for all the regular Mexican dishes.  They have very few ingredients and my children LOVE to help making them. I’ll make them often when I run out of bread to tide us over for a while until we can get to the store or make some in our bread maker.

    Could these be made ahead and frozen after they are rolled out and before they are cooked? So I could just take them out of the freezer and cook them, like the uncooked tortillas you can buy at Costco.

      I have never tried so let me know how it works out if you do. That would be wonderful if it worked my kids go through them so fast I have never had time to consider doing it. :)

    Wow, I love how simple it is to make these tortillas. I mean I’ve heard tortillas are really simple to make, but geez… The store ones are sooooo full of junk and chemicals it’s crazy. I feel like I’ve been under a rock for not making my own now. Well, thanks for moving the rock, haha. Can’t wait to get to making my own tortillas, FINALLY :)

    Super excited to try this recipe. I have had VERY LITTLE success with making tortillas thus far…How many balls? What size ball? What size tortilla does this make? I am going to try this recipe for tacos for 6 ladies and I would like to know how many tortillas this makes? Thanks, Kristi

      I usually make it in to 8 balls so just take the whole ball and break it in to 8 pieces and you’ll know the size.

    Thank you so much for the spelt tortilla recipe. Made them tonight and they are both easy and tasty! And, I hope I win the deep blue essential oil too!!!! My husband has cronic back, knee and ankle pain and would love to see if it would help him any. =)

      Spelt is a type of flour that a lot of people with a wheat allergy can eat. You can cook with it just like wheat flour. If you look on the post, there is a link to make it easy for you to buy it on Amazon. You could always just use this recipe with regular flour too and it will turn out great.
