I enjoy eating delicious healthy homemade food which necessitates learning how to cook healtthy homeade food. While I really don't mind cooking and can quite enjoy it at the right moments. However, I just don't seem to have a lot of time with 4 small children aged 1-7, homeschool, and housekeeping. So I was excited to find a great recipe on budget bytes for easy homemade tortillas. I love food...and homemade is always better and if it is fast and easy too I am that much happier!
I found my inspiration recipe here from Budget Bytes. I love this blog with all the easy photo tutorials of recipes with all the price breakdowns and yummy food. She definitely puts gourmet, delicious food within reach of even the poorest average Joe! I changed up her tortilla recipe because I wanted to get rid of the white flour and didn't mind adding a little more oil to keep it soft and moist while it became 100% whole wheat. So here is the super easy recipe.
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
2 Tbsp olive oil or melted coconut oil
3/4-1 cup warm water (depending on the moisture content of the flour you use)
Mix your dry ingredients together till well blended. Next combine your melted coconut oil (read here on the health benefits of coconut oil) or olive oil and warm water. Gradually add the liquid in a slow steady stream to your dry ingredients. Knead it all together till you have a ball and continue kneading once it has come together for about 1 minute. Now let it rest covered with at damp towel for about 10 minutes.
You can store them in a zip lock bag in the fridge. We like to throw them in the toaster to warm them up and they make GREAT open faced peanut butter sandwiches, delicious bean or breakfast burritos, as a stand alone snack with butter or coconut oil on them and a touch of honey and cinnamon.... There are endless possibilities. One of my favorite things about them is that you can make them in no time flat. No more dependence on store bought bread or tortillas. You can save a bundle by cooking them up yourself! Let me know what you think.
