The 40 Calorie Flour Tortilla
I made some home made guacamole to go with these. They’re pretty easy to make and delicious!

Market Comparison:
In terms of cost, I’m not sure as I’ve never bought tortillas from the store… But I imagine they do not cost 1 cent per tortilla. Nutritionally, 1 Flour Mission Tortilla is 150 calories… These are about a FOURTH of that. :)

1/8 Teaspoon Salt
.5 oz Water
1/4 Cup Flour
1/8 Teaspoon Baking Powder
Servings: Creates 2 Tortillas (1 Tortilla = 1 Serving)

Nutritional Facts:
Calories Per Serving: 41.25 cal
Fat (g) per Serving: 0.00 g
Carbs (g) per Serving: 8.63 g
Protein (g) per Serving: 1.13 g
Sodium: 32.50 mg

Financial Facts:
Cost Per Serving is $0.01.

1.Combine all ingredients into a bowl and mix. Dough should combine in to a single ball. If this doesn’t happen, add a little more water incrementally until it does.
2.Cover the dough with a wet towel or cloth for ~15 minutes.
3.Split dough into two balls. Roll into round shapes.
4.Flour the counter.
5.Take each ball and roll out into a very flat circle.
6.Take each circle and place onto an ungreased skillet.
7.Cook over medium heat until tortilla starts to show brown spots.

I have not tried these, found the recipe on tumblr and thought it sounded pretty close to store bought flour tortillas... and being in love with texmex food I'll try anything for a healthier flour tortilla! laugh

These look very nice. Not sure about 40 calories though (1/4 cup of flour is 110 - and that's before you add the other ingredients!)

OMG! Thank you I love tortillas!

Thanks for sharing, I miss tortillas. I will try and make them with my Mama's Almond Blend Flour. It will change the calories but it will be close enough for me flowerforyou

I'll try these. Have always wanted fresh tortillas but didn't know how to make them. I'm not sure that the salt and baking powder have any calories, so it'd be just whatever floor you use. Someone let us know if you try it.

My boyfriend makes these all the time! I had always just figured they were the same amount of calories as a pita or tortilla.. Glad to know they aren't!
