3 Ingredient Keto Tortillas

This is another keto bread recipe inspired by Fat Head dough.

Who knew mozzarella cheese could be used in so many ways? While these tortillas are not exactly made with Fat Head it follows the same principles.

These keto tortillas have a texture much like regular tortillas, and when they are cooked are sturdy enough to hold your fillings.

They are not gritty or graining like some tortillas recipes, but chewy, just like the real deal.

To make these ingredients you only need 3 ingredients and a microwave. If you don’t have a microwave, don’t worry. I’ll include stovetop directions at the bottom.

Making Libby’s Keto Tortilla Dough

This recipe moves quickly, so before getting started make sure you have everything you need ready to go.

I recommend cutting your parchment paper and locating a rolling pin before making the keto dough.

Once you have your parchment paper and rolling pin ready to go it’s time to make your dough.

To make the dough you will want to mix together some shredded mozzarella dough, almond flour, and xanthan gum in a microwave-safe bowl so that the cheese is coated in the almond flour and xanthan gum.

Next, microwave your bowl of cheese for 1 minute. When the minute is completed, knead the melted cheese into a ball with the back of a spoon.

Once the mozzarella dough forms a ball, place the dough back into the microwave for 30 seconds and kneed the dough again with your spoon to form a ball again.

Note: The dough can also be melted in a saucepan on low heat on the stove. Be sure to continuously stir cheese until it melted and forms a ball.

Shaping Your Tortillas

While your dough is still hot place your ball of dough in-between two sheets of parchment paper and roll the dough out thinly with your rolling pin.

You will want to roll the dough until it is about 1/8th cm or 1/16 in thick. Then remove the top layer of parchment paper from your dough.

Next, you will want to cut out your tortillas.

To make sure my tortillas are perfectly round I like to place a small bowl face down on the dough like a cookie cutter and cut around the bowl with my knife. You should be able to get 6 tortillas the first time through.

Place the dough scrape back into the microwave-safe bowl and reheat the dough for 15-30 seconds. Knead the dough into a ball with a spoon and then roll out the dough and cut out more tortillas.

I was able to get a total of 8 taco sized tortillas that were about 15cm wide. Any scraps can be cut into strips and cooked to make tortilla strips to top soups and salads.

Storing Libby’s Keto Tortillas

You can make your tortillas as needed or make them in advance so that they are ready to cook when needed. The tortillas are best stored uncooked in the refrigerator or freezer.

To store the tortillas place them in an airtight container or bag and then store then in the refrigerator or freezer.

Tortillas will last in the refrigerator for up to a week and the freezer for 1 to 2 month.

Tortillas can be cooked one at a time as needed.

Cooking Your Tortillas

To cook the tortillas heat a pan on medium-high heat on the stove.

When the pan is hot place the tortillas flat in the plan for 15-30 seconds, then flip the tortilla over to cook the other side. No oil is needed to cook your tortillas.

You can cook however many tortillas fit in your pan at one time. You will know your tortillas are ready to flip when the dough is no longer translucent.

If the tortilla folds while flipping, don’t worry. Use a spatula to spread the tortilla out again until it is flat.

3-Ingredient Keto Tortillas

Now that you have an excellent keto tortilla recipe start thinking of all the ways you can use them!

Each tortilla (assuming you make 8 tortillas out of the dough) has 2.1g net carbs. That is much lower than the 20g net carbs found in a regular corn tortilla.

I also find these tortillas very filling as they are made out of cheese. So while you might want to eat all the tacos, usually 1-2 tacos are more than enough to fill you up. Enjoy!
