How To Make These Healthy 3 Ingredient Oat Flour Tortillas
First what you’ll want to do is whisk together the oat flour and salt in a large mixing bowl. It is best to sift the ingredients together prior to whisking. This will ensure when you mix your dough it is nice and evenly uniformed. No lumps.
Next slowly add water, in batches, to the mixing bowl, stirring as you go. Again, stirring in a few steps vs pouring the water all in will make sure the batter is evenly mixed. These are tortillas and forgive me for saying it, but, the less lumps the better.
Once the dough comes together, gather the dough together into a ball. Then, sprinkling some oat flour onto a clean surface, knead the dough about 15 times. Shape the dough into a small log. Cut the log into 6 to 8 slices and form each slice into a ball. Add balls to a plate or bowl and loosely cover with plastic wrap. Allowing the dough to rest for about 10 – 15 minutes.
Next, using a rolling pin, flatten out the dough until it becomes the shape of a tortilla. Add to a cast iron skillet and heat on both sides for about 30 – 35 seconds. Once cooked, add tortillas to a steamer until ready to serve.
