- To make the tortillas: combine all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl and whisk until smooth. Heat a cast iron skillet over high heat and add a bit of coconut oil. Pour in 1/5 of the batter at a time and spread out into about a small circle.
- Cook for 1-2 minutes on each side. The tortillas should be soft and pliable but be golden brown in colour.
- Repeat until you have 5 tortillas.
