In an effort to eat healthier and reduce my family's exposure to chemicals, we have been doing more cooking from scratch. My daughter and I have been making our own tortillas and they taste great and are fun to make!


1 1/2 cups organic whole wheat flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. sea salt
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1/2 cup water

Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. On a clean countertop, form the dry ingredients into a small mountain and make a well in the center. Pour oil & enough water into the well to make a soft, but not sticky dough. Knead dough until well combined and smooth. Break dough into 8 small balls and dust with flour. Roll each into a circle 1/8 inch in thickness. Heat a lightly greased cast iron skillet over medium heat. Cook each tortilla for 15 seconds on each side.
