Have you read the list of ingredients on store bought tortillas? There are a ton of ingredients. I would tell you what they all really are but that would require some research and I’m feeling a little lazy so I thought I’d just give you a healthier alternative. Making your own tortillas is really easy and requires very few ingredients (and they are easily pronounced). It could even be a fun activity to do with your children!
Homemade Healthy Tortillas
3 cups unbleached all purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 cup water
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Allow to sit for about 20 minutes. Roll dough into balls. Roll each ball into a flat tortilla and cook over medium heat for about a minute on each side. This yields about 16 burrito size tortillas.
