4-Ingredient Whole Wheat Tortillas
- 2 cups White Whole Wheat Flour
- 3 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 3/4 teaspoon Salt
- 2/3 cup warm Water
In a bowl, mix together the flour, oil and salt. Slowly add the warm water while stirring until a rough dough comes together. Add a little extra water if needed. Turn the dough onto the counter and knead for about two minutes. Return to bowl and let rest for 20 minutes.
Divide dough into 8 equal balls. Using a rolling pin, roll each ball into a circle. You’ll want them to be pretty thin.
Heat a pan over medium high heat and grease very lightly. Drop one tortilla into the pan and let cook until bubbles form, about 1 minute. Flip over and cook another minute, pressing down with a spatula if needed. Repeat with remaining dough.
Use immediately, or store in an airtight container and either refrigerate or freeze. Warm just before serving to soften.

This is very close to a recipe I’ve used before and really liked them. Thanks for the reminder. (We ground our wheat from berries in a WhisperMill…which is a horribly-named appliance that would be more accurately called a JetEngineTakingOffMill.)
