The sports nutritionists @fwdfuel are always looking for ways to add protein to their athlete’s diets. This recipe they made for gluten free tortillas is also corn free and much higher in protein and fiber than traditional wheat and corn versions.
If you want your tortillas to be a little softer, substitute tapioca flour for 1/4 of the oat flour and add 1t of xanthum gum.
