Why settle for lettuce wraps when you can use keto-friendly coconut flour tortillas instead? Now you can enjoy low-carb paleo fajitas and tacos using authentic style Mexican flatbread!
Don’t be fooled by those low “net carb” keto tortillas you find in stores. Most of them contain wheat and gluten which aren’t so keto-friendly.
You should also question the net carb claims and do your own test to find out if the carbs do impact you or not.
Because it’s so difficult to find store-bought low-carb tortillas, I’ve been making my own at home. And, the process is much simpler than you’d think!
The dough comes together so quickly and the cooking time is less than ten minutes.
Why You'll Love It
These coconut flour tortillas are the perfect replacement for corn tortillas. You can finally enjoy keto tacos again! I love to use them to make breakfast burritos and wraps of all kinds.
You'll also really enjoy how easy they are. It's a simple recipe that gives you the ability to eat tortillas without all the carbs.
There are only 6 basic ingredients in these flavorful tortillas. All the exact amounts are in the printable recipe card, but here is a little more information about what I used.
I prefer to use psyllium husk in mine to give them a whole grain gluten-like texture without the grains or gluten. However, if you have trouble finding psyllium husks or psyllium husk powder, you can use flax meal instead.
They both work great for these grain-free coconut flour tortillas. Then, combine coconut flour to the mix to give them a softer mouthfeel.
For the flavor and texture, I used baking powder and sea salt.
The eggs act as an emulsifier, keeping all the ingredients together.
Use your favorite type of oil to fry the tortillas. I love avocado oil but olive oil will work too.
Please note: Check out the recipe card at the bottom for a full list of ingredients used to make this low-carb recipe.
- When using psyllium, it’s best to use an aluminum free baking powder. Aluminum can sometimes react with psyllium and create an off color.
- Place a non-stick wrap on the top and bottom of each dough ball before flattening. Plastic wrap works well.
- A rolling pin can be used to flatten the dough. But, if you are going to be making your own tortillas regularly, it’s best to invest in a tortilla maker like this 8 inch cast iron press.
- Psyllium gels up quickly when water is added so be sure to mix in the water quickly to form a uniform dough.
- It helps to sift the coconut flour first to remove any lumps before using.
- Beating the eggs before adding to the dry ingredients will ensure they are mixed in properly.
This is such an easy low-carb tortillas recipe! You’ll be able to have these keto flatbreads ready in no time at all.
Mix The Ingredients Together
First, combine the psyllium, coconut flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Then blend in the eggs to form a crumbly mixture.
Add in about ¼ cup of hot water then stir to form a dough.
Form The Tortillas
Divide the dough into six equal pieces and roll each piece into a ball. Flatten each dough ball into a round tortilla shape.
Grill The Coconut Flour Tortillas
Grill both sides of each tortilla to lightly brown in a frying pan, cast iron skillet, or on a griddle. Transfer to a wire rack and cool completely.
️ Serving Suggestions

Although I’ve seen paleo tortillas made with coconut flour sold at retailers, none of them are keto-friendly, so you'll still need to make your own. However, there are commercially sold coconut wraps that are low in carbs.
Keep them covered and you can store the tortillas at room temperature for up to a week. If you want them to last longer, I suggest keeping them in the refrigerator or the freezer.
