Keto Tortillas but also Keto Naan
Are they Keto Tortillas or is it a Keto Naan?
Keto Tortillas or Keto Naan? It’s both!! It’s basically a Keto flatbread made with almond flour. Now I’ve already done a recipe for a Keto naan/tortilla using coconut flour a few years ago. And might I add that the video has crossed over 1 million views!!! As with each of these recipes that use coconut flour, the first question I get is ‘Can this be made with almond flour?’. And that is why I decided to just go ahead and make this recipe.
So whether you have almond flour in your pantry or coconut flour, you can now enjoy this delicious Keto flatbread.
Jazz Up your flatbreads!!!
Sometimes a plain flatbread can get boring so why not jazz it up. In the video I use some garlic, butter and coriander to make a compound butter which you can brush on your hot naan. It’s absolutely delish!! I also put some Nigella seeds or black onion seeds on another one of them. These are interesting things you can do with your naan. You can also bake these for about 10-12 minutes in a really hot oven. Probably around 220C but since I haven’t tested this myself I can’t be 100% sure.
If you do bake them and have it figured out then let me know in the comments below. And finally if you want to buy that papad jali that I use (the stovetop grill with the handle) then just click here: https://geni.us/papadjali and order it. Cheers!

Keto Tortillas but also Keto Naan
- 60 grams Almond Flour Buy Online
- 10 grams Psyllium Husk I use this one
- 1/2 Tsp Baking Powder I recommend this one
- 1/4 Tsp Salt
- 60 ml Water
- In a bowl mix together all the dry ingredients.
- Microwave the water for about 30 seconds or just warm it on the stove.
- Add half the water and give it all a good mix and then slowly add the rest of the water to form a dough ball.
- Divide the dough into 4 equal parts. I recommend using a kitchen scale for accuracy.
- Then place the dough ball between two sheets of parchment paper and roll it out. Alternatively use a tortilla press. I have a trick using a frying pan to replicate the effect of a tortilla press so watch the video to see that.
- Then heat some butter or Keto approved cooking fat in a pan and then place your flatbread in the pan.
- Cook on a medium heat for 3-4 minutes till it is golden brown.
- Flip the flatbread over and cook till the 2nd side is done. You can add more butter/oil to the pan if you like. Watch the video for variations on the recipe and cooking options.
- Finally you can give it a quick kiss with the flame using a papad jali if you want to get some of those black marks like you do on a tandoor for your naan. Otherwise skip this step.
- Enjoy these with your fav curry as a naan or use it as a tortilla to make your fav tacos.
These are amazing! I added corn extract and they were perfect when I made tocos. Thank so much for the recipe.
hi.. can we cook them in large quantities and store them in the fridge to use through the week..?
Can you freeze these? How long would they last in the cuboard in a container?
You can freeze these for weeks. Store them in the fridge and they will last 2 weeks.
Has anyone used these to make enchiladas?
My God, these were good. I’ve GF for about 6+months for celiac diagnosis, so the texture is fine for me. I made these up and put some butter and Vegemite (GF variety) on them…. practically elated right now. It’s so nice to have the bread like texture again.
I just wanted to double check: are you using psyllium husks (the rods) or psyllium husk powder in this recipe?
I’ve linked the exact brand in the ingredient list so you can have a look.
Not sure what I did wrong but they fell apart and would not form up
Can only think it could be the brand or kind of pysllium husk you are using.
Hi there! I really enjoy your content. I was wondering if one doesn’t have psyllium husk, would xanthan gum or flaxseeds be a better alternative? Thank you in advance, and stay well!
I have never tried those options so I genuinely can’t say if they will work. They might work but you’ll have to do it by trial and error.
Here I am in 2022 still discovering your brilliant Tortilla/Naan Almond breads. This is so great so thank you for posting it. As I didn’t have salt I used half a teaspoon of Tamari Soy Sauce and a little less water. The results were wonderful. I like the discussion you have with your Dad too.
Am so glad you enjoyed the recipe. thank you!
You are the best Sahil. Made a double batch of these today. Added kalonji seeds to the mix and they have turned out really good. Thanks.
This is a quick recipe, but here’s what I did differently — I didn’t have the psyllium husk, but I heard ground flaxseed works just as well as a binder and I think it definitely did. I think these need to chill in fridge for a few minutes because either I added too much water just too moist? they weren’t easy to transport from parchment to pan. Otherwise, great taste and will certainly make again. Thanks!
