How to Make the BEST, Most Flavorful Einkorn Tortillas You’ll Ever Eat

Does anything go with a fajita or taco meat better than a tortilla? Don’t get me wrong; I enjoy a taco salad, but there’s something so inviting for a warm tortilla with all the meat, veggies, and toppings inside.

Is all-purpose einkorn flour healthy?

Since einkorn is an ancient wheat and better for digestion. It’s not hybridized so our bodies can handle it better. When making my own homemade tortillas in the past, I used regular all-purpose white flour.

Realizing we couldn’t eat flour, we switched to corn….but GMOs caused many problems so our “tacos” became a little boring as the kids would say.

So switching this einkorn flour tortillas recipe has been a win-win for the kids!

Homemade einkorn flour tortillas
Servings 14 tortillas 7 large

Ingredients
  

  • 3 1/3 cup all-purpose einkorn flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt ( I use a little less)
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 cup water

Instructions
 

  • Mix the dry ingredients flour, salt, baking powder. I like to use a fork to incorporate.
  • Add in softened butter and mix
  • Add hot water.I have a tea kettle on my stove and I heat it up while mixing in the other ingredients
  • Mix and knead. Set aside for about a half-hour. Einkorn does better if left aside for awhile, but most of the time we can't wait!
  • Preheat iron skillet on medium heat
  • Add a little flour to the rolling surface. Roll out desired size or about a golf ball size. I like my hand roller (each end has a roller) from pampered chef. Place in a hot iron skillet and cook for about 45 seconds until bubbles and flip

Notes

The flavor of these einkorn tortillas is the BEST! Enjoy! Make a double batch because everyone will ask for more!
*I have tried olive oil instead of butter and it wasn’t as tasty. Lard would probably work well and be flavorful
*I have also used coconut oil. They cooked faster on the skillet but butter has a better flavor.
