  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour + more for dusting the workspace
  • 2/3 cup whole-wheat flour , divided
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons instant yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2/3 cup water


  • In a mixing bowl add the all-purpose flour, 1/3 cup of whole-wheat flour, instant yeast and salt. Give it a quick mix.
  • Pour in the wet ingredients and combine with a large spoon, it should be a soft, sticky dough. Add the remaining 1/3 cup whole-wheat flour and combine again. It should be a non-sticky dough by now. If it's too sticky, add more flour. If it's too dry, add more water. 
  • Cover the bowl with a clean kitchen towel and let it rest in a warm place for about an hour.
  • Punch the dough down, and cut it in 4 equal pieces.
  • Form four balls and roll them out flat on a floured surface.
  • Put one tortilla in a very hot (!) pan (a flat pan like a crepe-pan works best) and let it in there for a minute or two and then turn when the tortilla is getting bubbles on the surface.
  • Repeat for the other tortillas.
  • Keep the Tortillas covered in a clean kitchen towel until using them to prevent them from getting hard.


Quick Yeast-Free Option: Instead of the dried yeast, you can add 2 teaspoons of baking powder. You don't have to let the dough rise for this option, but it won't be as fluffy and flexible as the version with yeast. For this yeast-free option, it's even more important to cover the tortillas in a clean kitchen towel as soon as they come out of the pan to make them a bit more flexible.
