Ingredients

    You will need:

    2 c. Gluten-free all purpose flour (or 2 c. White rice flour)
    2 tsp. Xanthan gum or Guar gum
    1 tsp. Gluten-free baking powder
    2 tsp. Brown sugar
    1 tsp. Salt
    1 c. Warm water

Directions

1) Add the dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl and mix the ingredients thoroughly.

2) Add the cup of warm water to the bowl and mix the dry ingredients into the water with your hand until its an even mixture.

3) Separate the dough into 8 pieces and roll each piece into a ball. Place all but one of the dough balls back into the bowl and cover with plastic wrap until you're ready to work with them.

4) Sprinkle a clean, flat surface with a bit of buckwheat flour and then roll your dough ball into a roughly circular shape and get as thin as possible.

5) Throw the tortilla onto a hot griddle (I use a cast iron griddle on medium heat with just a smidge of olive oil) and let it cook approximately 1-2 minutes or until it has started puffing up and the bottom side is developing those lovely brown spots. Flip the tortilla and cook the other side until is toasty as well.

6) Slide the cooked tortilla onto a covered plate to stay warm and repeat from step 4 until you've cooked all 8 tortillas. I generally roll one tortilla out while another is cooking, so that there is always a tortilla on the griddle.

7) Serve these warm with your favorite filling!

*Makes 8 good size tortillas*

    I made this recipe the other night with fantastic results. I used Gluten Free Essentials All purpose baking mix (has baking powder in it so I skipped the additional baking powder). Highly recommend this recipe! - 4/14/11

    These are the first gf tortillas i have attempted. From the other reviews I expected them to be super easy to make. They weren't, for me anyways. After i messed up the first two I finally figured it out though. Made great chicken wraps! thanks! - 9/1/12

    I used equal parts garbanzo flour, corn starch, and tapioca flour. It worked great for this. I used the tapioca flour for rolling becuase I didn't have any buckwheat flour. They were great like a cross between tortilla a pita. I'm with LAURLAUR74 on the it's not so easy part. Don't give up tho :) - 2/9/13

    To make rolling them easy and unsticky, use baking paper twice the size of your tortillas and fold in half then use the rolling pin to roll out the tortilla. Then chuck it in the hot pan baking paper and all. as it cooks it will seperate from the baking paper you will need to filp it a few times. - 1/18/13
