Easy Sweet Potato Tortillas

Updated: Sep 30, 2020

Not only are Sweet Potatoes so freaking delicious but they are also lower in both calories & carbohydrates and higher in fiber & vitamin A than regular white potatoes. ⁣

Rich in complex carbohydrates & fiber, sweet potatoes are great in satisfying hunger for long periods of time, while providing a powerful dose of beta carotene, vitamin C, and potassium.⁣

In Ayurveda, sweet potatoes are said to be balancing for both Vata & Pitta.⁣

Thanks to my recent Sweet Potato harvest, I’ve been putting these beautiful purple bad boys in pretty much everything these days - from cookies & perogies to these oh so easy homemade tortillas. ⁣

Give them a try! You can use any sweet potato - they don’t have to be purple, but it does make the dough pretty. ⁣


1 1/2 cup sweet potato ⁣

1 1/2 cup spelt flour ⁣

1/4 cup chia seeds⁣

1 tsp sea salt (optional)⁣


1. Combine potatoes (steamed, peeled and mashed potatoes), flour & chia seeds in mixing bowl and stir until well-combined. ⁣

2. Using your hands knead mixture into a dough ball. ⁣If mixture seems dry, you can add 1 tsp water

3. Separate dough ball into 6-8 equal parts. 

4. Dust counter with additional flour & roll out each dough ball into a tortilla with a rolling pin.⁣

5. Place tortillas in hot, greased (ghee or coconut oil) pan over medium heat & cook for 2-3 minutes on each side.⁣

6. Stack cooked tortillas on plate & cover with a clean towel, while cooking the rest to help them stay flexible & moist. ⁣

7. Fill with desired fillings.⁣
