Are simple paleo tortillas really possible?! If you’re looking for a really easy paleo version of a flour tortilla (or a crepe), look no further.

Watch my cooking show episode for Simple Paleo Tortillas here:

This recipe originated nearly 5 years ago right here on the blog. At the time, there weren’t very many paleo tortilla recipes out there, and most used coconut flour as a binder.

The result was tortillas that fell apart when you tried to fold them…no bueno.

You might think I set out to create a better, mightier alternative to my tortilla breakage problem…

…but the story is a bit different.

I was about to move to Scotland to be with Z – my then fiance, now husband – and I had a huge bag of arrowroot powder in my pantry to use up.

One Sunday morning while we were on FaceTime, I randomly mixed together a bunch of ingredients, and out came these Simple Paleo Tortillas. I put them up on the blog, and the recipe started spreading like wildfire! Now, these Simple Paleo Tortillas are my #1 recipe of all-time.

What Can You Make With These Paleo Tortillas?

These paleo tortillas hold up to folding or rolling and can be used in sweet or savory applications, and it’s easy to make a double or triple batch in advance and save them for upcoming meals.

Here’s an example of what you can make…

I seasoned some shrimp, fried them up quickly, and stuffed them into the Simple Paleo Tortillas. Then, I topped it with a quick slaw of red and green cabbage, mango, cilantro, and lime juice. And of course, I finished it with some avocado.

Seriously, the sky is the limit.

They’re also perfect for making up some tasty lunches on the go. Some of my readers have been using them to create wraps by laying sliced Applegate turkey on top, adding a dollop of mayo or mustard, and rolling them up. And word on the street is that the kiddos love them.

They key to the flexibility of my Simple Paleo Tortillas is to use arrowroot flour, sometimes called arrowroot powder.

What is Arrowroot Flour?

Arrowroot is a starchy gluten-free tuber. When dried and made into a flour, it has thickening properties kind of like tapioca. In fact, you can use tapioca flour – not the pearls – as a substitute. The starchiness of the arrowroot when combined with the egg makes for a tortilla that’s flexible and won’t break.

Here’s another idea:

Can You Freeze These Tortillas?

Make up a batch of these Skirt Steak Fajitas and serve the tortillas on the side.

I tested the Simple Paleo Tortillas to see how well they’d freeze. I rolled the tortillas up, froze them, then thawed them out.

When I unrolled them after thawing, they ended up completely flexible! Win. You could totally double or triple the batch, then freeze the extras for later.

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs large
  • 1 tsp ghee melted, sub: melted coconut oil for 100% dairy-free
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1/4 cup arrowroot powder
  • 1 tsp coconut flour
  • Pinch sea salt
  • *If making crepes for a sweet recipe add 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Crack the eggs into a medium-sized bowl and whisk in the melted ghee and water.
  2. Add the dry ingredients—arrowroot, coconut flour and salt—and beat well to combine.
  3. In a small skillet (8") over medium heat, pour in about ⅓ of the batter and immediately roll it around to evenly coat the bottom. The tortilla should start to pull away from the edges as it cooks.
  4. Cook for 1 minute on each side.
  5. If saving for later, cool completely and store in a plastic bag or airtight glasslock container.

Recipe Notes

You can substitute avocado oil or melted coconut oil for the ghee.

If you can't use coconut flour, just add an extra teaspoon of arrowroot powder.
