These oat tortillas are a great option for those who are looking for a gluten-free tortilla recipe. Even better, it’s made with very few ingredients!
Finding gluten-free tortillas in the store can be a pain in the backside. Some products labeled as “corn tortillas” or “oat tortillas” still contain traces of gluten, and are not safe for those who have a gluten allergy. And the products that are certified gluten-free can cost a fortune!
But that doesn’t mean you should give up on burritos and tacos. Did you know that it is super-easy to make homemade oat tortillas? No gluten, no unnecessary additives, and no problem!

How to Make This Recipe
First, add all of the ingredients into a bowl and allow the oats to soak for an hour. If you’re not planning to use your blender in that hour, you can even soak the oats in the blender to save you some washing up.
Blend everything together in a high-speed blender until you get a smooth mass with consistent texture.
Heat an (ideally) non-stick frying pan with some oil or vegan butter. You can also use cooking spray. Working a 1/4 cup of batter at a time, drizzle the oat batter into the pan into a circular shape, flipping once it is bubbling on the top. The surface of your tortilla should be fairly dry, while the tortilla maintains its pliability.
Don’t rush! Really let the tortilla set before you flip it over. Otherwise it will fall apart!
Repeat until all of the batter is used up. Enjoy your tortillas as wraps, burritos, tacos, and more!
- Did you know that you can use a very similar approach to make gluten-free flatbread from red lentils?
- Although these oat tortillas only feature 4 ingredients, you can customize it with extra flavors. A pinch of cayenne for the heat, some dried herbs, garlic powder, turmeric… The only limit is your imagination!
- If you want a more “fluffy” flatbread, add a little bit of baking powder to make your oat tortillas rise.
