Whole Wheat Flour Tortillas recipe

Source: Andrea Knight


  • 2 cups whole wheat flour 
  • 0.5 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoons vegetable oil or lard (preferred)
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 3/4 cups water


  1. Combine all dry ingredients. Add the lard or oil until it becomes like cornmeal. Add water to the mixture.
  2. Flour a surface and kneed the dough for 5 minutes. Divide the dough into 12 pieces and roll into balls. Set aside.
  3. Heat a skillet on medium high heat. Add 2 tablespoons oil to the pan. Roll out each ball on a floured surface into a tortilla shape using a floured or non-stick rolling pin. Cook each tortilla until cooked on each side. Dry the tortillas with paper towels so not too oily and stack under a paper towel to keep warm.
