Soft Wholegrain Spelt Tortillas (just 4 ingredients)
My kids love tortillas but I don’t like the crap added to the store bought versions. One way to keep your kids happy and your mum’s good conscience intact is to make these wholegrain spelt tortillas. They are super soft and made with only four ingredients.
These wholegrain spelt tortillas are so versatile, too. You can stuff them with your favourite Mexican ingredients. Use them as a wrap (as in these pictures), adding chicken and salad to make a quick, awesome lunch. Or even make into your own, homemade baked tortilla chips (recipe to follow) to dip into a fresh tzatziki dip. Check out these ten cool things to do with tortillas for more inspiration.
As delicious as these are, one thing niggles me a little. They weren’t round. It doesn’t matter what I make whether it is bread, pies, cookies or whatever else, I just can not get things completely round. Who cares though? Let’s call them rustic, shall we? Yes, let’s.

Wholegrain Spelt Tortillas (just 4 ingredients)
- 230g wholemeal spelt flour - see note 2
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons olive oil (extra for the pan) - see note 1
- 75ml cold water
- Mix all ingredients together. Stir until a dough pulls together and form into a ball. Let rest for around 20 minutes or so.
- Divide into 8 balls. Roll out into fairly round-ish tortillas about 6" in diameter.
- Brush a skillet with a touch of oil and cook each tortilla for around one minute on each side. When ready, place in a clean tea towel and keep them covered until ready to eat (this will keep them soft and pliable). I used mine for grilled chicken wraps and baked tortilla chips.
- Use any oil you like or a combination. Olive oil is very strong so use half that and half vegetable oil if you prefer
- I use grams in my recipes as weighing ingredients is the most accurate method. However, if cups are your thing, you can convert my measurements at Cook it Simply.
- Use wholegrain or white spelt flour. Or, if you don't have spelt, the same amount of regular flour can be substituted.
