Recipe makes 8 tortillas 

Ingredients: 

Chia Tortilla:

  • 1 cup of coconut milk, unsweetened
  • 1 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 3 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 9 tablespoons lukewarm water
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla bean
  • 1 tsp stevia
  • Pinch of sea salt

Strawberry Chia Jam:

  • 1 lb strawberries
  • 1 tsp stevia
  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 2 tablespoon water

Toppings:

  • Unsweetened cashew or coconut yogurt
  • gr8nola
  • cacao nibs
  • fresh strawberries

Directions

For the Strawberry Chia Jam: Add strawberries, vanilla, sea salt, water, and stevia in a food processor and pulse 4 times.

Transfer mixture to a sauce pan and heat over a medium heat. Bring mix to a low boil, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 5-7 minutes.

Stir in chia seeds. Cook the jam on low until it thickens, about 5-7 minutes. Make sure you stir the jam so it doesn't sitck.

Remove the jam from heat and let it cool to room temperature.

Pour in a glass jar or air-tight container and store in the refrigerator. The jam will keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.


For the Tortilla: In a small mixing bowl, add chia seeds and warm water and mix for about 30-60 seconds, until the chia seeds become jelly.

In a large mixing bowl add coconut, tapioca flour, vanilla bean, stevia, coconut milk, sea salt and coconut oil, and combine in the chia seeds mix. Mix until a dough forms. The batter should be somewhat like pancake batter consistency.

Over a medium to low heat, heat up a non-stick pan and lightly grease with coconut oil and pour in 1/4 cup of the batter in the middle of the pan and use a spatula to form an even circle and cook for about 2 minutes on each side. Remove from heat and serve on a plate.

Top with 1 tbsp yogurt, 1 tbsp strawberry chia jam, 1/2 tsp cacao nibs, 1 tbsp gr8nola and 1 sliced fresh strawberry.
