Homemade Whole Wheat Tortillas – Only 3 Ingredients

Homemade Whole Wheat Tortillas – Only 3 Ingredients

I decided to make my own whole wheat tortillas, after buying some made at a small local store. They tasted amazing, like nothing I had ever had before.

I have tried various recipes, but the recipe below is quick, easy, and delicious. They take a little time (about 1/2 hour) but are totally worth it. Overtime you will get faster at making them.

Whole wheat tortillas are a staple in our house. I am actually eating a quesadilla right now ūüôā I make them twice a week and we devour them all. My son loves them plain and fresh off the pan. They are great for everything – tacos, burritos, quesadillas… Yummy alternative to sandwiches ūüôā You can also put them in the oven for a bit and make tortilla chips for nachos¬†& salsa dipping. Chips go really well with a bowl of tortilla soup… Yum.¬†









  1. In a medium bowl, add flour, oil and hot water. Mix and knead until well combined. Set aside.

  2. Preheat a non-stick pan over med-high heat. The pan should be fairly hot before you begin cooking the tortillas. I personally like using a square griddle.

  3. Take the dough and divide it into 6-8 equal sized pieces.

  4. Using the palms of your hand roll each piece into a round ball and flatten it out on a baking tray or board. Press both sides into flour to help prevent sticking while rolling.

  5. On a lightly floured board or counter top, use a rolling pin to turn each ball into a 8 to 10 inch flat circle. Only work with one at a time. The tortillas tend to stick to the counter of they sit too long.

  6. Carefully transfer each tortilla, one at a time, to the pan, flip first side immediately and then cook about 30 to 45 seconds per side. Set aside on a plate to cool slightly. Eat within an hour, refrigerate or freeze.


You can always add seasonings to the dough to create various flavors.

Be adventurous¬†and have fun! ūüôā
