Let’s taco ’bout this homemade paleo tortilla recipe! I’m always on the lookout for ways to keep our healthy diet exciting. Jackson could live on chicken, rice, and veggies. I, on the other hand, could not.

I like to mix it up, try new foods, and experiment in the kitchen. I aim to stay away from sugars, processed foods, and unhealthy fats. Even though I have nothing against whole wheat, I’m always open to paleo, Whole30, and gluten-free versions of my favorite recipes. I have many friends with food sensitivities, and I don’t want one ingredient limiting them from trying some really delicious food.

That’s what makes this recipe great. There are only three ingredients that almost anyone can enjoy—coconut flour, eggs, and water. Yes, it’s really that simple.

Why coconut flour?

Coconut flour is high in fiber and gluten-free. You can use a lot less coconut flour than regular flour because it is extremely absorbent. It’s important to note, it does act differently than other grain flours. For every 1 cup of flour, you can substitute 1/4-1/3 cups of coconut flour and increase the number of eggs. With coconut flour, you’re using less flour and getting more nutrients. It’s a fun way to make cookies, cakes, and other baked goods more healthy.

When we first made these paleo tortillas, we were in shock! SO GOOD. It was the perfect vehicle for our tacos and anything else we could wrap up inside. We even ate them for dessert!
