Hello one and all, after doing some experimenting and long missing the wonders of burritos, my family came up with this recipe. These work well as Tortillas or Crepes and I am sure you could do many, many things with them. Simply by adding/removing or changing up seasonings, you could completely alter the way you use them. For instance, a little cumin and other seasonings would make this a perfect Tortilla for Burritos. If you were to add a little sweetener, cinnamon and other seasonings instead you could easily use this to serve cut fruit with a creamy dressing or topping like Cream Cheese or Custard or a Nut Butter.
Grain Free Tortillas/Crepes
(makes about 6 - 8 crepes) 1 Cup Tapioca Flour 1 Cup Water, Milk or Milk Substitute (or combination) 2-3 Tablespoons Coconut Flour
For Tacos/Burritos - 1/8 Teaspoon Onion Powder, 1/8 Teaspoon Garlic Powder, 1/4 Teaspoon Ground Cumin, a dash of Salt and a sprinkling of Italian Seasoning. For a sweeter version - 1/8 Teaspoon Nutmeg, 1/4 Teaspoon Cinnamon and 1 Teaspoon Granulated Sweetener like Maple Sugar.
Directions: Put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Heat a frying pan on medium heat and melt a small bit Butter or Coconut Oil for in the pan. Use Measuring Cup or Soup Ladle to scoop out some batter. Remember, this batter will be VERY runny, like really thin Pancake Batter. Pour it into the pan to coat a thin layer or whatever desired thickness in the bottom of the pan and fry until golden brown, 3-5 minutes per side. You will know when they are not cooked enough as they will be very difficult to scoop and flip. If you are having a hard time with this, you may not be cooking on the first side long enough.
I am sure you can do so many things with this recipe and I would love to hear what some of you try, please post in the comments and share.
Update: I recently made a Coconut Free, Dairy Free Sweet Version of these.
1 Cup Tapioca Flour 1 Cup Water 6 Tablespoons Almond Flour
1-2 Tablespoon Maple Syrup
Instructions are the same as above.
And they were FANTASTIC! I served them with a variety of things, for instance one was served with Cream Cheese and Cherries for my Brother who is NOT Dairy Free. Another was served spread with Creamy, Sweetened Pecan Butter and I loved it! The Creamy Sweetened Pecan Butter was made by tossing my Sweet Glazed Pecans into a food processor and processing for about 5-10 minutes. However this morning I had one filled with my French Toast Scrambled Eggs and it was a fantastic breakfast.
