Cassava and Coconut flour tortillas are gluten-free, grain-free, vegetarian, paleo, and can be made vegan-friendly. They’re great for tacos, fajitas, quesadillas, wraps, and so much more! Full step-by-step below.

Cassava Coconut Tortillas inspired much of my gluten-free journey due to the versatility of the ingredients. In my search for gluten-free tortillas, I have come across many recipes that have great flavors but not always the right texture. One of my favorite brands is Siete which has delicious Cassava Coconut Tortillas but can become very expensive!

For example, I always thought you needed to add tapioca flour to help give it a soft texture. But, it actually made the tortillas taste quite gooey. This made me think about how I needed a strong base such as using cassava or cashew flour and mixing it with coconut or almond flour for texture. My tortillas were starting to take life, but something was still missing. Here comes warm water.

Have you heard of the saying that temperature, elevation, and environment all play a part in your baking? Well, that was the case with this. The temperature of the water needs to be warm to help the flour bind and form together into softballs that can be easily pressed out! This was it, the soft pull-apart texture I was looking for was somehow found just by changing the temperature of the water. 

After much experimentation and tons of full bellies later, we are sharing our tasteful and irresistible gluten- & grain-free tortillas.

If you are gluten-free or grain-free, cassava flour can provide you with a plethora of different recipe choices since it is the most comparable to wheat flour in terms of a 1:1 substitution. Otto’s Cassava Flour is our go-to brand because it has a higher quality than the other brands we’ve tried and consistency is always key with Gluten-Free flours!
