Whole Wheat Tortillas

Flour, oil, salt, water––that’s all you need to make these easy, 100% whole wheat tortillas from The Lean Green Bean! No need for all those extra ingredients and preservatives found in packaged wraps. Make a batch and use immediately or refrigerate the leftovers for a quick weeknight quesadilla or sandwich wrap.

Ingredients for servings


  • 2 cup White Whole Wheat Flour

  • 3 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • 0.75 teaspoon salt

  • 0.66666666666 cup warm Water


  • In a bowl, mix together the flour, oil and salt. Slowly add the warm water while stirring until a rough dough comes together. Add a little extra water if needed. Turn the dough onto the counter and knead for about two minutes. Return to bowl and let rest for 20 minutes.

  • Divide dough into 8 equal balls. Using a rolling pin, roll each ball into a circle. You’ll want them to be pretty thin.

  • Heat a pan over medium high heat and grease very lightly. Drop one tortilla into the pan and let cook until bubbles form, about 1 minute. Flip over and cook another minute, pressing down with a spatula if needed. Repeat with remaining dough.

  • Use immediately, or store in an airtight container and either refrigerate or freeze. Warm just before serving to soften.
