Ingredients

1 c
warm water
1 tsp
salt
1/4 tsp
baking powder
1/4 c
oil
1 1/2 c
whole wheat flour (i use freshly ground)
1/2-3/4 c
unbleached all purpose flour

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place liquids in bowl.
2
Add the dry ingredients.
3
Knead until the dough is workable but not stiff. (Keep the dough moist for soft tortillas.)
4
Let stand 10 minutes.
5
Pull out golf size tortillas & place onto floured board.
6
Either roll with floured rolling pin or press down with fingers. Of course you could press with a tortilla press if you have one. I like pressing down with my fingers because I feel like I get a better shaped tortilla.
7
Cook on a griddle on both sides until slightly golden.
