Whole Wheat Tortillas

Whole Wheat Tortillas for the Daniel Fast
by Susan Gregory on December 28, 2007

You can buy 100% whole wheat tortillas, but these are so easy and fun to make. Use these tortillas for a veggie wrap or for chips with salsa.


2 cups whole wheat flour

½ teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons olive oil

½ cup warm water


Mix flour and salt in bowl.
Add olive oil and stir until well combined.
Add warm water 1 tablespoon at a time until the mixture starts to pull away from the sides of the bowl.
Knead dough on floured board for about 3 minutes (20 folds).
Allow dough to rest for 15 minutes (this is called resting)
Roll dough into sausage-shape and then cut into 12 equal parts (cut in half, then in half again, then each part into thirds) and shape into little ball
With a rolling pin, roll each little ball into a tortilla (for best results, roll out from the center and outward).
Heat a skillet over medium heat. Fry the tortillas in a dry stick-free pan for about 30 seconds on each side for soft tortillas or longer for crisp tortillas.
Keep tortillas warm by placing in a tortilla holder or wrap in a kitchen towel
