How to make flaxseed tortillas
All you need to make this recipe is flaxseed, chia seeds, water and salt. Simplicity itself! The flaxseed can be either golden or brown. We prefer golden, but that is just a personal preference.
The flaxseed needs to be ground and so do the chia seeds. You can do this yourself with a coffee grinder.
Once the dough has been made, allow it to cool slightly as you don't want to burn your hands whilst rolling it out. It also lets the chia seeds work their elastic magic!
How to store
These tortillas will keep for about 4-5 days if stored in the fridge in an air tight container.
