So many healthy things can be placed inside a tortilla to create something delicious, but then you ruin the healthiness by serving it on a tortilla. I hate that. Try using these oatmeal tortillas. There's a bit of white flour, sure, but are still sneaking in some whole grains! My kids were fighting over these. Granted the little one will eat just about anything.
3/4 cup oats (grind into a powder using a food processor or blender)
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 - 1 cup white flour
1/2 tablespoon salt
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup cold water
1. Place ground oats, wheat flour, 1/2 cup white flour, and salt into a stand mixer using a dough hook.
2. Add olive oil and water and knead for 5 minutes. Add more white flour as needed to form a firm dough.
3. Allow dough to rest for at least 20 minutes.
4. Using a tortilla press, press golf ball size portions between parchment paper. On a dry griddle over medium-high heat, cook tortillas until lightly browned.
