Tips for making Chickpea Flour Tortillas:

  • Make sure you let the batter sit for at least ten minutes for best results.

  • You can omit or change the spices used in the batter.

  • For a sweet crepe-like tortilla add 1 tablespoon of maple syrup, omit savory spices and instead add a few pinches of ground cinnamon before cooking. This tastes great with coconut cream and berries.

  • You can cook for just a few minutes each side for a flexible wrap or cook until crisp on each side for a tostada-like tortilla.
