Author Deana Larkin Evans


  • 1 cup organic white rice flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 2 tbsp potato starch
  • 2 tbsp potato flour
  • 1 tbsp guar gum
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp pink Himalayan/iodine salt blend
  • 3 tbsp organic fair trade palm oil (or coconut oil)
  • 1 cup warm filtered water


  1. Mix the ingredients together in a medium sized bowl. Add flours first, guar gum, baking powder and salt first. Work in the coconut oil (at room temperature). Then add the warm water. Mix together with a fork and then knead together to form a giant ball of dough.
  2. Once the dough has formed, break off small handfuls and roll into balls about the size of a golf ball. You should have about 10-11 dough balls.
  3. Place two sheets of wax paper on a tortilla press and put a dough ball in between the wax paper. Press down the tortilla press. Open and use your hand to transfer the tortilla to a hot non-stick skillet.
  4. Cook for about 30 seconds – 1 minute per side, then flip. The tortillas should be slightly browned and flexible.
  5. Transfer to a tortilla warmer until ready to serve.
