Coconut flour tortillas, and quesadillas yum!

Oh man, this morning wan FUN! I decided to make yummy breakfast quesadillas for hubby, and wanted a Keto version for myself. More on my Keto swim journey here.


I've been eying the PCOS Kitchen coconut tortilla recipe for some time, and it is a winner! And, only 3.2 net carbs per tortilla.


I followed the recipe, but adjusted the flavourings - just a sprinkle of garlic powder, onion powder, and a little more parsley. Unlike with gluten-based doughs which seem to absorb some of the flavourings, I find almond and coconut flour doughs really make flavourings pop. So a little goes a long way. The dough mixes quickly, and flattens easily with a tortilla press, between 2 sheets of wax paper. Note: place to ball of dough closer to the back hinge, the press will flatten it forward. No press? A rolling pin works just as well. I heated some olive oil in a non-stick pan, and fried each side on medium-low heat until golden.

Start with a generous layer of cheese of one of your tortillas, fillings of your choice, then more cheese. Slap on another tortilla, and you're good to go! Don't bother with oiling the pan to fry the quesadilla, as the tortillas are still a bit oily themselves, works just fine. I used a large wide spatula to press it flat, and to flip it. Cook log enough to crisp the tortilla, melt the cheese, and heat the fillings. Check your heat, make sure not to burn the tortillas.

And voila! Beautiful, right?
