Two Ingredient Gluten Free Oat Tortillas

 If you are avoiding wheat and are frustrated with the expensive prices of gluten-free bread choices, this recipe is for you. These delicious gluten-free tortillas are made with just 2 simple ingredients and are so easy to make. They fold up perfectly for wraps, burritos, and more. 

 Last month at my allergy doctor appointment, I got the dreadful news that I was still allergic to wheat. I had been following a gluten-free diet for the past 6 months after I realized, through a food log, that eating wheat caused me to have a bad asthma attack. Since I was receiving allergy shots for airborne seasonal allergies, the previous doctor said that I may have a temporary wheat allergy.

 While wheat showed up on my 1st allergy shot panel a year ago, it never bother me. It may have been masked by my severe seasonal allergy symptoms. As my seasonal allergy symptoms improved from the allergy shot treatment, eating wheat was the only thing to cause me to have breathing problems. So I was tested for wheat again through an allergy skin prick test and the wheat allergy test result came back more severe.

My food allergies include dairy, soy, mushrooms, and wheat. 

 My dreams of eating a homemade piece of honey wheat bread with butter were crushed. I quickly got over my pity party when I realized that not having severe asthma symptoms and being able to sleep again was way better than any slice of bread made with wheat. I was also thankful that there were good-tasting gluten-free bread options available at the store. 

 While I was able to find many delicious gluten-free products at the store, I was tired of having to pay $7.00 for a package of gluten-free tortillas. So I searched for recipes for gluten-free tortillas with simple ingredients and I discovered this Two Ingredient Gluten-Free Oat Tortillas.

 Since I live in New Mexico, tortillas are a staple in my home. My family enjoys many meals that include tortillas, like tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and more. While corn tortillas are gluten-free, I wanted to enjoy a tortilla that is similar to a flour tortilla.

 I also wanted a tortilla that did not break easily, like corn tortillas. These tortillas that are made with oats have a texture that is similar to tortillas that are made with wheat flour and the best part is they are foldable. So you can stuff these wheat-free tortillas with plenty of filling.

2 Ingredients For Oat Tortillas
~ Oatmeal ~ Any type of oats will work ~ rolled, quick, or gluten-free oatmeal

This gluten-free and allergy-friendly recipe requires only 2 ingredients! Oatmeal and water are all you need. Any type of oatmeal will work. I like using rolled oats but instant oatmeal works also. If you have gluten issues, I recommend using gluten-free oatmeal.

Method For Oat Tortillas
~ Measure
~ Soak ~ the oatmeal for 5 minutes
~ Blend ~ the oatmeal in a blender 
~ Cook ~ cook the batter in a pan

The method for making oat tortillas is quite simple. You will need a blender and a frying pan. Simply measure out the oatmeal and add it to the blender. Add water and let the oats soak. Then blend the mixture until smooth, which should resemble a pancake batter. Cook the batter in a frying pan and enjoy.

Add Some Flavor

While these tortillas taste great as they are, you can add some flavor to the batter. Get creative with this oat tortilla recipe and add some flavors to the batter. Experiment with your favorite seasonings. Below are some suggestions.

+ 1/2 teaspoon salt
+ 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
+ 1/4 teaspoon chipotle seasoning

Storage Tips

 This recipe makes 5 tortillas and is easy to double for leftover tortillas. Store leftover tortillas in the refrigerator for a week or freeze for up to 3 months. Make sure to cool the tortillas completely before stacking them.

Serving Suggestions

These homemade tortillas can be used as a substitute for wheat tortillas in most recipes or enjoyed with butter. 
+ These are the perfect gluten-free tortillas for sweet or savory wraps
+ Stuff them with beans and cheese for burritos
+ Add lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, and beans for tacos
+ Use them for plant-based burgers
+ Use two oat tortillas and cheese for quesadillas
+ Make the best fish tacos ~ Drizzle Mango Hot Honey* over a piece of cooked fish - add coleslaw and sliced avocado and place into the oat tortillas

* Mango Hot Honey 
A tropical twist for your taste buds. Imagine the sweet, juicy flavor of ripe mangoes combined with a subtle kick of heat. This exquisite blend captures the essence of tropical paradise, infusing your dishes with a unique and tantalizing flavor profile. Drizzle it over grilled seafood, or roasted vegetables to create a harmonious balance of sweetness and spiciness. This delightful honey would be perfect for homemade salsa. Perfect for fish tacos, pizza, and more.

Cooking Tips

These tortillas take time to make and the batter may not be the perfect texture. So don't be afraid to make changes if your first tortilla is not perfect. 

+ Add more water ~ If your tortillas are too thick, add 1-2 tablespoons of water to the batter. 

+ Don't rush the cooking time ~ Each tortilla takes close to 10 minutes to cook. If you have an additional skillet, you can have two going at a time to speed up the process.

+ Tortillas breaking apart ~ You may have flipped the tortilla too soon. They take a while to cook fully on one side. Wait until the batter is bubbly and looks somewhat cooked. 

+ Use a non-stick skillet ~ To prevent the batter from sticking use a lightly oiled non-stick skillet.
