My best friend is allergic to not only nuts, but also coconut. This makes cooking for the two of us is somewhat tricky so whenever I get the chance to create a recipe that is both keto AND nut-free and coconut-free, I jump at it. This low-carb recipe is also egg-free and vegan in case you can't eat eggs either.

These nut-free keto tortillas are based on Martina’s original Keto Tortilla recipe but I have switched the almond meal and coconut flour for more ground flaxmeal and the addition of lupin flour. They are not like proper Mexican tortillas but if you're keto, you are going to love them!

I made 6 tortillas using this dought but you could make up to 8 tortillas if you roll the dough out thinner. I deliberately kept these plain but you could add whatever seasonings you like, smoked paprika, Italian herbs, nutritional yeast, grated Parmesan, onion powder or garlic powder.

These grain-free tortillas look fragile, but they are so sturdy and flexible and have a lovely deep flavour from the flaxmeal.

Looks like I’ll be having Taco Tuesday with my bestie soon. Enjoy!

Ingredients (makes 8 tortillas)

  • 1 cup ground flaxmeal (150 g/ 5.3 oz)
  • 1/2 cup lupin flour (60 g/ 2.1 oz)
  • 2 1/2 tbsp psyllium husks (10 g/ 0.4 oz) – use whole husks, not powdered

  4. Form a thick log and wrap in cling wrap before chilling in the fridge for an hour.
  5. Remove from the fridge and cut into six even slices. (I made 6 thicker tortillas but you can get up to 8 tortillas if you roll them out thinner and use any off-cuts to form more dough. Nutrition facts calcutlated with 8.) Nut-Free Keto Tortillas
  6. Roll each slice very thinly between two sheets of baking paper and then use a 20 cm (8 inch) saucepan lid or plate to cut out a circle. Nut-Free Keto Tortillas

Would using "Golden" Flaxseed meal make a difference in the taste?

Some people find that they taste "milder", more neutral. I personally don't mind either 😊

I absolutely LOVE your keto tortillas and although I'm not nut-free I'm making these! I was looking for ways to use my lupin flour and this might just be the best recipe to start with!

Thank you so much Sasha I'm new to it too but so far great results!
