  • 2 cups (300g) whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup (130g) all-purpose flour
  • 5 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup water , at room temperature


  • In a large bowl, combine together both flours, olive oil, baking powder, and sea salt. Stir together until the mixture resembles crumbs.
  • Gradually add the water and keep stirring until the mixture pulls together into a dough. If the dough is too sticky, add a little more plain flour, if it's too dry, add more water, a little at a time. Shape into a disk and divide into 8 equal parts.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out each piece into a 10-inch circle using a rolling pin. Work with one dough piece at a time while keeping the rest covered with a kitchen towel to prevent from drying out.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. It should be fairly hot before adding your first tortilla to be able to cook it quick.
  • Cook the tortillas, one at a time, until puffy and slightly brown, about 30 to 45 seconds per side.
  • You can enjoy your tortillas immediately or freeze them for later use.
