  • 1 ½ cups cassava flour
  • ½ tsp. sea salt
  • ¼ cup coconut oil, melted
  • ¾ cup warm water, plus more if needed


  1. In a large bowl whisk together cassava flour and sea salt.

  2. Add melted coconut oil and warm water. Knead dough until thoroughly mixed. The dough should stick together when pressed, but not be sticky.
  3. Roll into a log and then divide dough into 6 equal portions. Roll each portion into a ball and place between two pieces of parchment paper.
  4. Using a rolling pin, roll dough until it is ⅛-inch thick and has a diameter of 4 ½-5 inches. Or, place balls of dough into a tortilla press. Repeat with remaining balls of dough.

  5. Heat a dry skillet or griddle over medium-high heat. Cook each tortilla for 1-2 minutes per side, or until it begins to bubble across entire tortilla and steam begins to appear along the side.
