If you're looking for an authentic yet Low Carb Tortilla, try these nut free, keto, paleo and gluten free tortillas! These are the most legit keto tortilla you will ever have! Just 1 net carb per tortilla! This recipe comes from my cookbook Naturally Keto!
THE BEST LOW CARB KETO NUT FREE TORTILLAS
A traditional tortilla is a type of flatbread made from corn or wheat typically filled with savory fillings. When you start a low carb or keto diet, those are something you might often miss since they are higher in carbs and may not fit into your macros. You can most certainly find store- bought low carb tortillas, but often they have other ingredients that include preservatives to keep them shelf stable. If you're eating a whole food approach, then you may want to steer clear away from those packaged low carb tortillas. Creating a homemade and authentic keto tortilla was no easy feat, but I have found the best combination of flavors and ingredients that will keep you happy on your new keto or low carb lifestyle. You can still enjoy your enchiladas and tacos using these amazing keto nut free tortillas that are just 1 net carb each!
HOW TO MAKE LOW CARB TORTILLAS
Most keto tortilla recipes you may find online often use almond flour as the main ingredient for making keto tortillas. My youngest son has a tree nut and peanut allergy so almond flour is not something we can use. I've also seen coconut flour tortillas and have tried them myself but felt they just didn't provide the texture and authenticity of a real tortilla I remember enjoying prior to my low carb days. I set out on a mission to create the most authentic, pliable without breaking apart once you fold them and paleo, dairy free keto tortilla for my cookbook, Naturally Keto!
After what felt like a billion attempts with different ratios, I feel I perfected the most legitimate For Real Keto Tortilla! A combination of two types of nut free keto flours and delicious bone broth and this recipe came to be!
TOOLS TO MAKE LOW CARB TORTILLAS
Food Processor- I love my Cuisinart food processor because I can blend anything so quickly! Perfect for pie crusts, cookie dough, and these tortillas!
or Blender- If you don't want to invest in a food processor, a high powered blender should do the trick for most recipes.
Small Nonstick Frying Pan- A nice non stick small frying pan, 6 inch or 8 inch will work well for cooking these tortillas.
FILLING FOR LOW CARB TORTILLAS
I've used these tortillas for taco filling and my Copycat Chipotle Beef recipe. You could enjoy these for any filling really! Even just a roll up with deli meat. You could even make these Breakfast tacos and use my filling from these Taco Stuffed Tomatoes! Not into beef? Use my Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Filling instead!
HOW TO STORE LOW CARB KETO TORTILLAS
Once cooked and cooked, I would layer them between pieces of parchment paper and then in an airtight container. Store in the refrigerator for up to a week or freeze in a ziploc freezer storage bag for up to a month.
My cookbook Naturally Keto came out last October 2019. It's been one year since its release and so many people have left lovely comments and review on Amazon. I feel incredibly blessed I have had this book be a staple in so many families home.
If you're just starting the keto diet or have been doing it a long time, this whole foods approach, family friendly recipe cookbook will be everything for you! Even if you're not actually on a keto diet, you will love the recipes in this cookbook! Real meals for families, nothing too complicated and flavor filled and satisfying! There are pictures for every single recipe! Not an easy task but I know how worth it is for even me, to be able to see a final product of a written recipe and I wanted to make that happen for this cookbook.

FOR REAL KETO TORTILLAS (NUT FREE, PALEO)
For Real Keto Tortillas (Nut Free, Paleo)
- ½ cup sesame flour I used Sukrin brand
- ½ cup coconut flour
- 2 teaspoon xanthan gum
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ⅓ cup bone broth
- 2 eggs or ⅓ cup
- avocado oil, ghee or butter to fry
- Add all ingredients to a food processor or a blender. Process until smooth and dough forms.
- Separate dough into 10 balls. Sprinkle some coconut flour onto a clean counter surface or on parchment paper. Add some flour to the top of the dough before rolling. Flatten each ball into a 6 inch circle using a rolling pin. Set aside on a plate to finish the rest.
- Heat about a teaspoon of oil in a small skillet over medium high heat. Lay one tortilla in the skillet. Spray the top of the tortilla with oil cooking spray before flipping. Once the edges are brown, carefully flip over. Just needs 1-2 minutes on each side. Generously spray the pan or oil or butter the pan each time you make the next tortilla.
My husband is alergic to sesame can I use just coconut flour?
I've not tested it with coconut as it won't be an equal amount to swap.
I love the taste of these tortillas! They are truly bendy and taste as good as the from scratch ones I made pre gluten free days. The issue I need help with is that the dough is too sticky to roll out at all with a rolling pin, between two pieces of parchment. it didn't matter how much coconut flour we used, the pressing down made it stick terribly. So I ended up using at least a cup more of coconut flour and pressing them into thin rounds . . . . I also added a bit more coconut flour to the mix but that didn't seem to help the stickiness at all. Should I try making the dough in advance and putting in the fridge for awhile to make rolling easier? This is only second recipe I've made with sesame flour so I wasn't sure if adding more of that would help with stickiness? I'd like to have these regularly since we've missed tortillas for past year and these taste so good! Any tips for making it easier for my family to make them less sticky would be greatly appreciated!
What can I use to substitute xanthan gum? It can come from corn. corn hurts my joints.

Another lady says they use psyllium husk instead of xanthan
Hello, i don't have sesame flour,, what else could i use?
Sunflower seeds ground would work
Naomi Ann Marks
I simply ground up some sesame seeds sin e I couldn't find the flour. Might have not been as fine as store bought, but worked well enough to get tasty tortillas.
I absolutely love these! They are what’s been missing in my life! I will always have some in the freezer. Thank you!
Hi Brenda...Your cookbook, your recipes, and you yourself are a real find for me. I love your videos. They’re so well-done and easy to follow. Your recipes are brilliant, and it’s obvious how much work you’ve put into this entire project. There is one thing that I’m finding mildly frustrating....and that’s the name of some of the recipes in your book’s index. For instance, since I have your book, I wasn’t going to print out the tortilla recipe. But to make sure, I looked in the index in Naturally Keto under ‘tortilla’..then under ‘low carb’, ‘real’, and a number of other words that you used. I finally thought to look under “For”,which you have as the first word in the recipe. Had I not seen this post, and was looking for a tortilla recipe, I would have assumed there wasn’t one in there. The pictures of the different categories is a great feature, and it is in there under “For”, which is how I found it. Having it in the index as “Tortillas” would have been so much easier. Thanks for all you do...and do so well.
I'm sorry you had trouble finding the recipe in the index. I actually did not create that, the publisher did. If I ever make another cookbook, I'll be sure to look at that to avoid those issues again.

Hi! I love your recipes and anxious to try these tortillas! Can you tell me whether to use chicken bone broth or beef bone broth? Thank you!
Either will work fine and taste delicious.
I was wandering what could I use in place of xantham gum. Sometimes it can come from corn. I am very sensitive to corn, it effects my joints.
We use psyllium husk instead of xanthan gum
Thank you for this dairy free recipe! Keto is largely built on dairy to obtain the required fats. Dairy hates me, though. It's not a digestive reaction but a strong respiratory issue that dairy causes. Finding keto recipes that contribute to the macros without dairy has been a challenge! Would you please post more dairy free recipes? Thank you again. Everything I have made from your site has been so good.
I would also appreciate more non dairy recipes due to respiratory issues! Enjoy your recipes!
What can be subbed for the sesame flour?
The button is,that you can choose for grams or cups messurements.
First of all I love your site. I live in a not Englisch speaking country so I run to a few issues before I can make a recipe. Translate and sonetimes,wondering what the ingredient is or the how you make it. Find the ingredient here, a journey of it's own, and calculate the ingredients from cups to grams . So to make it al little bit easier for me here is my question:" Is it possible to make a button to change your ingredientslist from cups to grams" For every ingredient I have find out what the weight is on the internet and different sites tell different weights for the same ingredient. Which one is correct. I saw this button at different keto sites. It would be so handy...
I think with this button will get your site to more people who use the metric system useable
Under the last ingredient, the metric is to the right of US customary.
huh I looked every where and couldn't find it. Too sleepy I think. But thank you
Hi Brenda, my family absolutely detests the taste of coconut in their food. Is there a refined coconut flour out there that I could use that you have knowledge of? Do you know of a substitute that would work? Would really like to try the recipe. Thanks! Marilyn
My youngest son is the greatest detector of all and hates the taste of coconut but couldn't tell in these. I've not found a substitute for coconut sorry.
For those who can't do coconut, if peanut allergies are not an issue, try lupin flour....acts a lot like coconut flour. If its only the taste of coconut, try 50/50 lupin and coconut. Coconut is sort of sweet and lupin a tad bitter alone....together they are a match made in heaven.
Since I'm not worried about nut allergies, could I sub almond flour for the sesame flour?
You could though I haven't tested it so I'm not positive it will be the exact amount, in fact you made need a lot more almond flour to have the better work and not be sticky to the touch.
