Guest Post: Homemade Spelt Tortillas

-Angela @ OhSheGlows

Thank you so much for thinking of me! :) I am afraid that I have already taken on so much this week - I thought I would send you a baked good that I have already posted a while back.  These spelt tortillas are a HUGE hit! They are easy, delicious, and economical. All of the ingredients cost me just $1.10 to make a batch of 8 soft spelt tortillas.


Buck Ten Homemade Organic Spelt Tortillas


2 cups Spelt Flour (can also use whole wheat or white flour)

1/2 tsp. half salt

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1 Tbsp Olive Oil

3/4 cup hot water



1. In a bowl, mix all ingredients well. Cover and let sit in a warm place for 20 minutes.

2. Divide into 8 equal parts and let sit, covered, another 20 minutes.

3. Roll each ball out to a 6- or 7-inch circle shape. I’ve found it helps to flatten each ball with your hand. Then take the rolling pin and roll from the center outwards, back and forth a few times as you go around the circle. When it starts to get thinner, take your left hand (if you’re right handed) and turn the tortilla a couple inches. Use your right hand to use the rolling pin (holding in the middle) and roll from the center outwards. Keep turning and rolling until it is paper thin.

4. Preheat a skillet on medium high heat.  Place a tortilla into the skillet and watch until bubbles form. This won’t take long.

5. After bubbles form, and the bottom is lightly brown (or there are darker spots), flip over, press down once or twice, and cook for about 30-45 seconds, or if smoke appears.

6. Cook remaining tortillas, watching carefully, and place on a plate, with wet paper towels in between them. Refrigerate for later or remove the paper towels and freeze.
