Why make oat tortillas instead of regular tortillas:

  1. Healthier Option: Oat tortillas are made with just oats and water, making them naturally gluten-free, vegan, dairy-free, nut-free, egg-free, oil-free, and refined sugar-free. This makes them a healthier alternative to traditional tortillas, which often contain preservatives, additives, and GMOs.
  2. Nutrient-Rich: Oats are a great source of dietary fiber, protein, and essential vitamins and minerals. Using oats in your tortillas provides a nutrient-dense option that supports better digestion and overall health.
  3. Customizable: Oat tortillas can easily be customized with various herbs, spices, and seasonings to suit your taste preferences. This flexibility allows you to create unique flavor profiles and enjoy a variety of meal options.
  4. Versatile: These tortillas are incredibly versatile and can be used for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snacks. They work well for breakfast tacos, wraps, and even as a base for mini pizzas or quesadillas.
  5. Easy to Make: Despite sounding complex, oat tortillas are straightforward to prepare with just two ingredients and minimal equipment. Whether using whole oats or oat flour, the process is simple and quick, making it accessible for home cooks of all levels.
  6. Natural Ingredients: By making your own oat tortillas, you ensure that you are consuming tortillas made from natural ingredients without any unwanted additives or preservatives. This is a great way to control what goes into your food and maintain a cleaner diet.
  7. Cost-Effective: Oats are generally more affordable than many other types of flour. Making your own tortillas can be a cost-effective way to enjoy fresh, homemade wraps without breaking the bank.

Switching to oat tortillas can enhance your meals by providing a healthier, customizable, and versatile alternative to regular tortillas. Give them a try and experience the benefits for yourself!

How to make Oat Tortillas

Using whole oats:

If you’re using whole oats or instant oats, follow these instructions. You will need a blender for this method.

Step One:
Add your oats, water, and optional extras to a blender and blend until very smooth.

Step Two:
Leave the mixture to sit for five minutes – this will allow the batter to thicken slightly.

Step Three:
Heat a non-stick pan on your hob to medium heat. Spray your pan well with cooking spray or brush with some olive oil to really ensure that the tortillas don’t stick.

Step Four:
Pour some of the batter into the pan – I like to use a 1/3 cup measuring cup as I feel this is the perfect amount of batter for the size pan that I use. Play around with your measurements to find what works for you. Spread the batter around to the edges. Try to create an even layer of the batter all around the pan.

Step Five:
Leave the tortilla in the pan until the bottom is cooked. You will know it’s ready to be flipped when the edges start to lift off the pan. This usually takes 3-4 minutes. Gently insert your spatula underneath the tortilla and flip. Leave for another minute or two, then remove from the pan.

“Rinse and repeat” – I like to rinse my pan between each tortilla to cool down the pan, then respray with more cooking spray and repeat.

Using oat flour

If you have oat flour, use this method. This method is a bit trickier to add extras, but you can add some herbs, seasonings, or spices to the mixture.

Step One:
Add your oat flour, water, and spices or herbs, if using, to a bowl and whisk until smooth.

Step Two:
Leave the mixture to sit for five minutes – this will allow the batter to thicken slightly.

Step Three:
Follow steps 3-5 from the above method.

Tips and tricks for making homemade tortillas

  • Use a High-Quality Blender: If you’re starting with whole oats, ensure you have a powerful blender to achieve a smooth batter. This will help create a better texture for your tortillas.
  • Consistent Batter Thickness: For even cooking, ensure the batter is spread evenly in the pan. Use a measuring cup to pour the batter and spread it out in a circular motion to cover the pan uniformly.
  • Speed up the Time: You can use two frying pans or skillets to do two tortillas at a time, this makes it go so much quicker!
  • Resting the Batter: Letting the batter sit for at least five minutes before cooking allows it to thicken slightly, resulting in a better consistency for the tortillas.
  • Medium Heat is Key: Cook the tortillas on medium heat. If the heat is too high, the tortillas might burn before they cook through. Too low, and they may not cook evenly.

  • Non-Stick Pan: Using a non-stick pan is essential to prevent the tortillas from sticking. Additionally, lightly coat the pan with cooking spray or oil to ensure easy flipping.
  • Cool the Pan Between Batches: Rinse the pan with cool water between batches to prevent overheating. This helps maintain a consistent cooking temperature for each tortilla.
  • Perfect Flipping Technique: Wait until the edges of the tortilla lift off the pan slightly before flipping. Use a spatula to gently lift and turn the tortilla to avoid tearing.
  • Experiment with Sizes: Play around with the size of your tortillas by adjusting the amount of batter you pour into the pan or by using a different size pan. Smaller tortillas are great for snacks, while larger ones are perfect for wraps and burritos.
  • Batch Cooking: Make a large batch of tortillas and freeze them for future use. Separate each tortilla with parchment paper to prevent sticking, then store them in a freezer-safe bag.

By following these tips and tricks, you’ll be able to make perfect oat tortillas every time, enhancing your meals with this healthy and delicious alternative!

Flavor Ideas

One of the best things about oat tortillas is their versatility. Here are some ideas to customize your tortillas with different flavors and ingredients:

  • Garlic and Herb: Add garlic powder, dried oregano, and dried basil to the batter for a Mediterranean twist.
  • Spicy Kick: Incorporate chili powder, cayenne pepper, or smoked paprika for a bit of heat. Add finely chopped jalapeños or red pepper flakes for an extra spicy punch.
  • Cheesy: Mix in nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavor that’s vegan-friendly. Or add some finely grated Parmesan or cheddar to the batter.
  • Onion and Chive: Add onion powder and dried chives for a subtle onion flavor.
  • Cinnamon and Sugar: Add a teaspoon of cinnamon and a pinch of coconut sugar to the batter for a sweet and warming flavor.
  • Anti-inflammatory: Mix in a teaspoon of ground turmeric and a pinch of black pepper for an anti-inflammatory boost and vibrant color.
  • Rosemary and Sea Salt: Add chopped fresh rosemary and a pinch of sea salt for a fragrant and savory flavor.

By experimenting with these customization ideas, you can create a variety of delicious oat tortillas that suit your taste preferences and dietary needs. Enjoy the endless possibilities!

Storage Instructions

Proper storage is key to keeping your oat tortillas fresh and delicious. Here’s how to store them:

Refrigerator Storage: Allow the tortillas to cool completely before storing them. Storing warm tortillas can create condensation, which can make them soggy. Stack the tortillas with a piece of parchment paper or wax paper between each one to prevent sticking. Place the stacked tortillas in an airtight container or a resealable plastic bag. Oat tortillas will keep for up to 5-7 days in the fridge.

Freezer Storage: Ensure the tortillas are completely cool before freezing to avoid freezer burn and sticking. Place a piece of parchment paper or wax paper between each tortilla to prevent them from freezing together. Place the wrapped tortillas in a freezer-safe resealable bag or an airtight container. They can be frozen for up to 2-3 months.

Reheating Instructions: To reheat refrigerated tortillas, place them in a non-stick pan over medium heat for about 30 seconds to 1 minute on each side, or until warmed through or microwave for 15-20 seconds or until warm.

By following these storage and reheating instructions, you can enjoy your homemade oat tortillas fresh and tasty anytime you want!
