Grain Free Keto Spinach Tortillas Recipe
As an Amazon Associate and member of other affiliate programs, I earn from qualifying purchases.
One of the best recipes I’ve put on the blog is one for grain free tortillas. Since I’ve published these keto spinach tortillas, it has gone to my top ten out of 1100 recipes every week.
The flavor is subtle, the color is beautiful and the tortilla is pliable. This Keto spinach tortillas recipe makes 8 tortillas, you can use for enchiladas, tacos and wraps. They store well in the freezer and I recommend making a double batch because if you’re following a low calorie (98 calories) or low carb (2 net carbs) diet, you will make these at least weekly to have as a staple.
I made these on a whim when I wanted to make green enchiladas and just happened to have fresh spinach in the house. I threw a big handful of raw baby spinach into a food processor with some almond flour and got a gorgeous green mixture. This was a very happy development.
I laugh to myself wondering why I don’t have 100 spinach recipes here, as I am the Spinach Tiger. If you’re wondering how I got the name, it was christened from a friend who said “she’s a real spinach tiger” in a lively debate. I knew it that moment it was a name I was suppose to embrace and about a year later, it became my blog name. It seems to fit my food view perfectly and almost ten years later, I’m still here and I’m glad you are too.
This recipe for grain free keto spinach tortillas is very similar to my regular grain free tortilla, which is a serious staple in our kitchen.
You’ll need a few things to make these, but it will be a wise investment. I am very conscientious about products I recommend, as I don’t like gadgets or wasting my money or your money.

Kitchen Tools and Ingredients needed for the Keto Spinach Tortillas
All of these can be found at my Amazon Shop, which earn a small commission, but do not increase prices. I’ve also linked them in the recipe for your convenience.
- Tortilla Press. You could roll them out, but to get a uniform shape, this is worth it.
- Pre-Cut Parchment papers. (trust me).
- Blanched Superfine Almond Flour.
- Coconut Flour
- Xanthan Gum (do NOT skip this ingredient. You can’t make the grain free spinach tortillas without them). They will stick to the parchment paper and you’ll hate me. You only use a small amount, so this investment will have a big return.
- Food Processor
- Golden Flax Meal
- Chia Seeds (optional, but I always use them).
Additional ingredients include white vinegar, an egg and baking soda, (which you’ll probably have on hand.)
Once you make the tortillas, you’ll want to make this chicken enchiladas recipes.

Hi, I was wondering if you can use Psyllium husks instead of the xanthan gum? And if you do, then can you approximate the quantity for this recipe? Thank you !
No you cannot substitute xanthan gum. If you don’t use it, your tortillas will fall apart.
Why are the first 2 ingredients in metric?
I have a keto bakery and heavily suggest weighing the flours if you want success. You can look on back of your product to figure out how much to uses. The almond flour is about one cup and that is stated. The coconut flour is about 5 teaspoons.
So far I have made 3 batches of this. Love it! Trying the enchilada dish with some.
What can I substitute egg with?
You could try a golden flax egg. Add another 1 Tbsp flaxseed meal (ground raw flaxseed)
2 1/2 Tbsp water. Or, try a batch without the egg. If it seems to hold together. Make one tortilla then you can skip it.
