Delicious cassava flour tortilla recipe works for AIP, Paleo and uses only 5 whole foods ingredients. They’re easy gluten-free and grain-free tortillas!


  • 2 cups cassava flour (I use this brand)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp black pepper (optional)**
  • 2 tsp granulated garlic (optional)**
  • 4 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 1/3 cups warm water


  1. In a large bowl, or the bowl of a stand mixer, combine all the ingredients except water. Using your hands or the beater blade, mix everything together until the flour resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
  2. Add the water and mix until the dough starts to come together, looks smooth in some parts (it will never be completely smooth) and the dough pulls cleanly away from the sides of the bowl.
  3. Preheat the griddle to 350F. Weigh the dough into 1 ounce portions and set aside.
  4. When the griddle is ready, roll each portion of dough into a ball. Place it between two pieces of parchment paper on a tortilla press and press. Gently peel back one piece of parchment paper. Turn the tortilla into your hand and gently pull off the other piece of parchment paper.
  5. Place on the griddle and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until you see small bubbles start to form on top.
  6. Flip and cook again for 2-3 minutes, or until you see small bubbles start to form on top.
  7. Remove to a cooling rack to cool. Serve warm.


** I made these both with the extra spices and without, and they’re both equally delicious. The smell of the tortillas cooking with the garlic and black pepper is intoxicating! Omit if you want, but definitely feel free to experiment with the additional flavors. We thought they added extra “oomph” to our tacos!
