Two Ingredient Sweet Potato Tortillas
Two ingredient sweet potato paleo tortillas. An easy gluten free and paleo tortilla recipe. These tortillas are pliable, delicious, and easy to make!
Okay, hold on, because I am just over-thrilled about these tortillas right now.
Sweet potato tortillas made with just two ingredients?
Count me in!
These easy to make paleo tortillas are healthy, delicious, and easy for anyone to make!
Plus, who doesn’t love getting a little flour on their hands once in awhile?…
So, you can use a tortilla press for this recipe, but we love to do it by hand instead.
Rolling out dough by hand and shaping pretty tortillas is kinda therapeutic, trust me.
Every-time I roll out tortillas, it brings me back to when I was in Belize, where I spent the afternoons rolling out tortillas side-by-side with the neighbor family, who prepared meals for hungry kids every day after school.
Most of the time, it would be the children’s only meal in the day and it was such a joy to work side-by-side making tortillas for their happy little faces.
two ingredient tortillas!
My sister made this recipe for you guys today and we had a lot of fun making burritos afterwards! 🙂
I use Anthony’s Goods cassava flour for this recipe and recommend you use the same brand for the same results.
It has been reported that different brands can cause a variance in final results.
Well, you’re pretty much ready to go!
Once you get your dough together and roll it out, you’re on your way to flipping tortillas.
Then comes the fun part: planning out what you want to fill them with!
Today, I made dessert tortillas by spreading some almond butter on one of these tortillas, adding some apple slices, drizzling with molasses, and finishing off with a sprinkle of cinnamon.
It was delicious!
Also, had to sneak in a breakfast burrito in there for lunch. 🙂
Planning on tacos later…
|Prep Time||15 minutes|
- Make mashed sweet potato (cut sweet potato into cubes, steam in a saucepan with 1" water until soft, then drain and use). Stir mashed sweet potato together with cassava flour in a bowl until smooth.
- Divide dough into 8 equal pieces, dust a clean surface with cassava flour, and press/roll out into 1/4" thick tortillas.
- Heat a skillet over medium heat, drizzle lightly with olive oil, and cook on each side until golden brown.

How do you store them if you don’t use them all?
Hi Shelby, I store them in the fridge or freezer.
Are there any substitutes if we don’t have cassava flour?
Hi Taylor, there really isn’t a good sub for cassava flour except regular wheat flour. Sorry!
Hi Taylor, I find almond flour and tapioca flour are a good switch.
I tried this with tapioca and the wraps stuck to the pan, even with a generous amount of olive oil. When I pulled it out the pan I found the wraps were gummy and sticky
Hi! First of all, THANK YOU for your wonderful recipes.
I am from France and I really really enjoy discovering and trying out your recipes ☺️ They are AMAZING!
Second. Could I make these with a different type of flour? 😬 still gluten free!? Thanks a lot!!!
Thank you Leila! There really isn’t a good sub for cassava flour except regular wheat flour… maybe a gluten free flour blend?
GREAT recipe! Used a white sweet potato and had to put in a little extra cassava to make it less sticky…but they grilled up beautifully for our salmon fajitas! Total win!! Thanks for sharing your God-given talents!
Great to hear Marci! And thank you so much 🙂
Awesome. Everyone in the house loved them. Will certainly be making these again.
Great to hear Brian!
Can I use a different flour? I was food sensitivity tested recently and told not to use anything not on the test. I can use hazelnut or coconut flours. Would one of them work?
Hi Carol unfortunately, cassava is the only flour (except regular wheat flour) that can be used in this recipe to get the same results.
Hi Carol, I made tortillas with coconut flour and I added some almond and rice flour as well. So I will say yes you can-you will just need to experiment to find the perfect measurements. Using coconut flour is a little tricky because it really soaks up the liquid so you want to use less coconut flour. I recommend doing a little research into it so that you can enjoy your baked goods without any undesirable food sensitivity effects. 🙂 Happy baking! Thanks for sharing the recipe Kaylie!
What about chickpeas flour, can that be used instead?
Hi Lene, I don’t/haven’t cooked with chickepea flour, so I cannot say how it would work.
These look amazing! I need to buy either a rolling pin or tortilla press I guess, because I’ve never seen anything this cool in the stores when we are looking for GF tortillas. Thanks.
Thank you Suzanne! I actually press them out by hand a lot pf times and that works too. 🙂
Hi Kayle is it a healthy recipe, but I had a problem with the dough. Not sure but was very sticky, I add more flour and still didn’t work. How long the potatoes has to be cook?
Hi Mirna, I cook the potatoes until soft, then combine. You can add more flour if needed.
These were amazing!!!! The texture was the closest to gluten tortillas that I’ve ever had, and the flavor was DELICIOUS! I flattened them by putting the ball of dough between wax paper and pressing down with the bottom of the frying pan. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
Great to hear Stephanie!
Hi, I’m very new to paleo, and here in Mexico it’s sometimes a bit tricky to find the ingredients. Could you tell me if there is an alternative flour I can use? As I don’t think I’ll be able to find the one mentioned in the recipe.
Thank you for all these delicious recipes, I can’t wait to start making them😁
Hi Jenny, I think you can use regular wheat flour in place of cassava- that is the only good sub I have heard of for cassava.
Yum! I’ll have to try this. I make a delicious gluten free tortilla with almond flour, tapioca flour, mashed sweet potatoes and salt. They are sooo good.
Great to hear Martha!
Best tortillas of all time. I’ve made some batches regular sweet potatoes and some with white sweet potatoes. All delicious. I’ve also been short half a cup of cassava flour once and used bobs red mills paleo flour and that worked well! For the people asking about a subsitute, I’d give that a try. Thank you for this recipe (:
That’s awesome to hear Nelle!
I just made/ate theses with a ground beef taco recipe. Thinking that these we’re going to be like tortillas for tacos or enchiladas, or burritos, they were actually very close to sopes. Absolutely brilliant! Depending on the size and thickness, this recipe can also make pancakes, or Indian roti or chapati. It’s was super easy to make, which makes me happy!
Your recipes are brilliant! I’ve made the cauliflower tortillas before and loved them!
Can you freeze these these
Yes! I freeze these tortillas.
Hiii!!! This recipe works with tapioca flour??? I Love sweet potato, and i would really want to make this recipe!!!
Thanks for the recipe, i’m New in the paleo world!!
Regards from Chile!!
Hi Teresita, this recipe won’t work with tapioca flour unfortunately- it’s too gummy and they won’t turn out the same.
This simply is NOT working. I have used the exact measurements of sweet potato and cassava flour and I am left with a crumbly dry mix which can not be made into a tortilla. It seems like it needs either shortening or liquid of some kind. I was really looking forward to serving it tonight.
Hi Lindsay, what brand cassava flour did you use? Using Anthony’s Brand for the same result is very important!
You had me at “sweet potato” and then it was cemented at “Belize”. Ah haffu buy boledo todeh!
I made these tonight but used half coconut half arrowroot flour. I filled them with black beans and feta and topped them with pineapple peach salsa. Absolutely scrumptious!!
I have now tried making these three times. Very frustrating to make. Doesn’t matter how much flour I add to them they are too sticky to roll out. I have tried many flours, casava, almond, coconut, wheat and a combo of all of them. I would love to know what I’m doing wrong! In the end they are delicious but not worth the aggravation.
Hi Melissa, what brand cassava flour are you using?
Hi! Do you know how long these will stay good for in the fridge or freezer?
Hi Ally, I store them in the freezer for 2-3 months. 🙂
My husband can’t have sweet potatoes. Do you think this recipe would work with another type of potato?
Hi Tina, maybe regular potatoes would work with less flour?
I loooooove a guilt-free tortilla. Perfect with TVP “meat”, avocado, and salsa. My family went crazy over them!
Can I use pumpkin instead of sweet potatoes?
That sounds like a great idea Bonnie!
The sticky problem is probably from the difference in the sweet potato, not necessarily the cassava. My potato was a bit dry and I added a small amount of water to get a soft dough. Those that are too sticky might begin with less potato and add a bit at a time to get consistency. I loved mine!
Thank you Becky,
My dough was actually crumbly. It did not stick together too well. Would the same adjustments fix my problem?
Outstanding and super easy! I’m planning on putting cashew butter and a mixed berry purée then rolling hem up and eating for breakfast.
Thank you Ashley!
This aren’t tortillas, they’re chulas (when they have sweet potato or some sort of pumpkin) or filloas (when they are made with eggs). Please, use the words right if it isn’t your mother tongue.
Sigourny, Don’t need to be nasty.. there’s nicer ways to express your opinion. ✌🏼 Thanks Kaylie for the great recipe! 😋
I tried these tonight and they will probably become a staple. So easy and my 92yo mom (who is a very picky eater) went back for seconds. I can’t tell you what that means for me. Thank you!
Thank you Kat!
I have sweet potato flour and would love to use that… I can’t have any grains at all.
Hi Dyane, I have never cooked with sweet potato flour before, so I cannot say how that would work.
I cannot wait to try these. Recently I’ve had to go on a gluten free/dairy free food regimen (Doctors orders) and although I love corn tortillas having this option will be fantastic! 😀
First time I made them! Out camping so limited in ingredients, did have rice flour and oat flour. They turned out great, made some smaller ones as well going to use those to make a burger for my beetroot blackbean burgers in stead of bread.
Also will be trying them as a pizza base. Great recipe thank you.😊
Thank you Cathy!
what about pamelas brand?
Made these last week for the first time. I used about half coconut flour and half almond flour for the recipe (too lazy to run to the store for Cassava flour) and eyeballed for textures & consistency, then just a Gluten free flour blend for pressing them out. They came out great! I found that hand pressing them out worked best. My daughter and I ate them all week and they were perfect. Thanks for the recipe. About to make another batch 🙂
Can this be made with baked sweet potatoes?
Yes, that will work.
Do you make the dough while the sweet potatoes are still hot or do you let them cool. Do you think the dough could be made ahead of time?
Hi LT, I make the dough when the sweet potatoes are still warm to save on time, but either way will work!
Can I use Brown Rice Flour instead Cassava Flour?
Hi Jeanie, I don’t think it would work the same unless the rice flour was mixed with some tapioca flour or another flour that will help hold the ingredients together.
Hi, recipe looks great, I can’t wait to try. I just want to know what Nutrition Calculator you use? Because I can’t get that to add up.
Hi Courtney, it’s auto calculated automatically from a website plugin.
Hi! Love the recipe! How long do I cook the potatoes for and how long should the tortillas be cooked each side? Thanks!!
Hi Keara, I would say the sweet potatoes get cooked for about 8-10 minutes… depending on how high the stove is set. And the tortillas is about 1-2 minutes on each side.
My dough came out too sticky to roll out. I used wheat flour but some others who used cassava had the same problem. Really wanted this to work out. Oh well.
I make these regularly just as the recipe recommends, and they turn out great for me. I have celiac, so I was really glad to find a recipe for a wrap that stays flexible and tastes good with both savory and sweet fillings. I use parchment paper or a dusting of extra cassava flour to roll out, then bake on a griddle.
So great to hear, thank you Merlou!
hey, i’m not from an english speaking country. what does 1″ water means?
It’s one inch. 🙂
I haven’t tried this recipe yet, but intend too! Idea- has anyone tried making this as a crust? Thoughts?
Hi, I am Wondering if I Could Substitute Your cassava Flour with Chickpea Flour Instead? I happen to have it On hand and Would Love to Try this 🙂
Hi Daynah, I haven’t tried that and I don’t cook with much chickpea flour, so I’m not really sure, but that might work okay!
Thank you the recipe I can’t wait to make them! Do you add water while mixing the sweet pototoes?
I don’t add water while mixing the sweet potato. 🙂 Enjoy!
My mom loves these! Thank you so much for this awesome recipe! These are a staple for her especially as she doesn’t eat hardly any of the normal carbs that most people do. Thank you!
Great to hear, thank you Elizabeth!
This recipe makes me really happy. Mine cooked up really well. They taste incredible with a bit of almond butter on top!
Thank you Amanda, glad you enjoyed it!
These were so good with carnita pork and cabbage. We made a sour cream lime sauce to go on them and the flavor combo was amazing. They do take a bit to cook though. They definitely took me longer than the 15 minutes. Totally worth it though. Thanks for the recipe!
Came out great on a baking stone in the toaster oven! I was short the amount of sweet potato so roughly halved the recipe, and added a splash of olive oil (maybe one tbsp?) to smooth out the dough before spreading directly on my baking stone. Turned out well and we’ll be baking these again–I’ve got sweet potatoes cooking now and will make your tortillas for breakfast. I seasoned the dough with turmeric, garlic granules, oregano, cumin, black pepper. It was delish!
Made these today as I was craving pizza. I caramelized some onions, ham steak and freshly sliced pineapple. The sweet potato and cassava crust/tortillas turned out amazing. I steamed the sweet potatoes as the instructions indicated and had no trouble making dough. I made balls and put them in-between parchment paper and flatten the dough using the bottom of a round cake pan. They made perfect rounds every time. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I am doing AIP and was running out of ideas. This will be great for shrimp tacos too.
Yum that sounds AMAZING! Im glad that you enjoyed these tortillas and were able to come up with such delicious taco fillings.
I made these tonight and they turned out fantastic. I followed it exactly but I used Bobs Red Mill cassava flour… Perfection
Awesome to hear, thank you Lucy!!
Could this dough be used for pizza crust?
Hi Jodi, that should work- it would be like a thin crust pizza! 🙂
This is by far the best gluten free tortilla recipe. I’ve tried so many and these ones actually taste good and are incredibly soft, as well as easy to roll out! Thank you so much 🙂
Thank you Kaisha! That’s so kind. 🙂
I made these this evening and they are wonderful! I am not a good cook, but I followed your directions. These tortillas are the first bread-like things I’ve had since going grain-free. It was so nice to have grain-free, nightshade-free tacos for dinner tonight — thanks for the recipe!
Isn’t cassava flour the same thing as tapioca flour???
Hi Tess, they aren’t the same, however they are from the same plant. 🙂
OMG Thank you!!!! I live for simple recipes 😌. Also if you roll it out just a tad bit thicker , you can bake and make sweet potato flatbread or pita . I even took it a step further to adding tomato sauce and cheese to create a flatbread pizza . Best thing EVER
Oooh I love this idea!! Glad you enjoyed them. 🙂
This looks so good! What a great way to still enjoy tortillas in a gf way!
Thank you Suzanne!
Thanks for sharing! Does it keep long?
Hi Vanessa, cassava flour dries out quite quickly, but you can reheat them in the oven or toaster to make them pliable again. 🙂 I like to store them in the freezer. 🙂
Thanks for an easy amazing recipe!! As I live in France and get my cassava flour from the African/Asian shops, it is not the same as American brands. In most recipes I have to basically double the amount. With white sweet potatoes, a little less than double and with orange sweet potatoes, double the amount of cassava flour. Once I figured that out, perfection!!
These were delicious but didn’t make it to get filled with anything. Added mango jam and rolled em up and ate as is! Tried with melted vegan cheese which was not bad either. Great use for leftover sweet potatoes since I make a tray of them at a time and then tire of them after eating half.
Great to hear, thank you Nina!
Hi! These are absolutely the best! I make them all of the time and my family loves them! My kids won’t eat sweet potatoes, but they eat these! Thank you for sharing this amazing recipe! This is a game changer for our paleo household!
Oh so good to hear, thank you Charity!
