Gluten Free Flour Tortillas (vegan)

Gluten Free Flour Tortillas (vegan)
Who doesn't like a tortilla? They are faster to make than a pita and work well to scoop up curries and dips, and to wrap burritos and fajitas. Generally, the soft ones are made with wheat flour, but  I worked out this recipe using Bob's Red Mill all purpose gluten-free flour. (Bob's uses a lot of garbanzo flour in the blend, so the tortillas overpower subtly flavoured dips like hummus.)

For this Gluten Free version, follow the instructions for (wheat) Flour Tortillas using these ingredients:

2 cups Bob's Red Mill all purpose gluten-free flour
2 tsp baking powder
4 tsp xanthan gum
1/2 tsp lite salt
3 tbsp olive oil
3/4 cups warm water

While you will not need to knead the dough per se, you will need to work the ingredients into a ball like play-doh. It will also need to sit for a few minutes to set up before you break it into 8-12 smaller balls to roll out. If it is too hard to roll out after it sets up, add a little more water, a tablespoon at a time, giving it time to soak in. Before rolling out, you may find it helpful to spray a small area of your table with either oil using a pump sprayer or non-stick cooking spray.


  1. Are these soft? Or will they break when you roll them?

    1. Marissa, yes, and yes. To keep tortillas soft, pile them on a plate as you make them. Flip the plate over and start using them from the bottom. If you are making them ahead, put the plate in a bag while they are still warm so the steam will soften them.

    2. Here's a recipe for corn tortillas. They are gluten free as well.
