Coconut flour tortillas ingredients
If you’re new to grain free baking some of the ingredients in this recipe may be foreign to you. Don’t worry, you’ll be able to find most of them at your local health food store or on amazon.
Coconut flour is made from dried coconut solids ground into a very fine powder. (Here’s how to make coconut flour, if you’re interested in going full DIY.) Its light flavor and coconut scent make it a delicious option for baking. It is light and airy, making coconut flour amazing for baking cakes, muffins or pancakes. Here’s my research on the best coconut flour you can buy.
Tapioca flour (sometimes labeled tapioca starch) is mad from cassava root. It’s a wonderful addition to grain free baking since it’s so light. You can use it in place of cornstarch as a thickener in sauces and pie filling. If you can’t find it locally, order it online from amazon here.
Most of the rest of the ingredients should be easy to find – one thing to keep in mind, you can make your own vanilla extract at home to set yourself up well for future recipes.
