Necessity is the Mother of Invention
or is it ?
Desparation is the Mother of Invention
Either way works for me. I don’t always NEED bread, but it would be nice to have it with SOME meals! Being on a Keto diet limits my carbs to 20 grams or less carbs per day. I can eat plenty, I am not hungry all the time, AND I am losing weight for the first time in years. Plus, I am in a good mood while doing it, because I AM NOT HUNGRY all the time! It is no fun being a mom and being a hungry grouch. Nor is it fun to make one menu for my family and another for me. This diet lets me eat most of what they eat. Yay!
I have been enjoying the Keto bread recipe, but have been missing tortillas. I began wondering can I have both?
Yes, I can.
It is only March, but it will be 90+ at my house today. That means I am not turning on my oven! I can’t justify turning on the air conditioner in March!
So today I attempted Tortillas. Now I can have quesadillas and tacos!
Keto Bread Tortillas
(1.8 g. Carb per Tortilla)
- 3 large eggs
- 3 T. butter, softened
- 3/4 C Finely Ground Almond Meal ( I used Bob’s Red Mill Whole ground meal)
- 1 1/2 t. Baking Powder
- Dash of Salt ( my addition not in original recipe)
Combine all ingredients in mixing bowl and beat at medium / Med. High speed 1-2 minutes. Heat a skillet until nice and hot and spray with cooking spray. Spread approximately 1/4 c. of the batter into the center of the skillet and with a spoon, swirl the batter spreading it out gently until desired size. Flip when golden brown to cook other side. I was able to make 5 and a half tortillas out of the recipe.
Makes 5 9 to 10 inch tortillas.
Cheesy Keto Tortillas
Add cheese while the first side is cooking on the skillet.
Makes these even yummier!
