How to Make Oat Tortillas
To a high-speed blender or a food processor, add rolled oats, water, and salt. Blend on high for 1 minute or until it's smooth and there are no large oat flakes visible. It's okay if the mixture is a little gritty.
Let the mixture rest for 20-30 minutes to allow the mixture to thicken. This step is key to producing tortillas that hold together and are easy to flip.
For an oil-free option, use a nonstick skillet. If you don't have a non-stick skillet you can brush your pan with a little bit of olive oil or vegan butter. You can also spray it with some nonstick cooking spray.
Heat over medium to medium-low and add ¼ cup of batter at a time to the pan. Gently tilt the pan to spread out the batter and form an even and thin tortilla. Cook on each side for 4-5 minutes until golden. Repeat with the remaining batter.
Your tortillas are ready to flip when bubbles appear and the edges start to dry out and pull away from the pan.
Remove from the heat and repeat the steps with the rest of the batter. Serve these oat tortillas right away or store them in an airtight container for later.
My Best Tips
- Let your mixture rest and thicken. This is a key step to making soft and foldable oat tortillas. When you allow the oats to soak in the water, they soften and thicken the mixture, which then makes them blend better.
- For best results, brush your pan with a little oil. It gives the oat tortillas a lovely golden brown color, as well as crispy edges.
- Adjust the thickness of the batter as needed. As you're frying each tortilla, the batter continues to thicken even further. Feel free to add 1-2 tablespoons of water to thin it out as needed.
- Add your favorite spices. This recipe gives you neutral-tasting tortillas with a nutty taste. You can add more flavor by adding spices, soy sauce, miso paste, or other flavor-packed ingredients you enjoy.
This recipe makes 7-8 small tortillas with 7g of carbohydrates in each.
Yes, you can make the batter 24 hours ahead of time. Make sure to store it in a covered jar or a container in the fridge.
Yes, you can freeze these oat tortillas for up to 3 months! Transfer them to a freezer-safe container and layer a piece of parchment paper between each tortilla to prevent them from sticking.
There may be several reasons for this, we'll explore the most common.
You didn't let the oats soak. As I mentioned before, this is an important step for the texture of the tortillas, so don't skip it!
You flipped them too early. You want to cook them for 4-5 minutes on each side, or until the edges of the tortilla appear dry and start to lift off from the pan, before the first flip.
Yes, but you'll need to use less oat flour than you'd use rolled oats. For every 1 cup of rolled oats, use ¾ cup of oat flour.
When it comes to serving these oat tortillas, the options are truly endless! Here are some ideas for both sweet and savory fillings.
- Similar to my vegan tofu tacos, you can stuff them with crispy tofu and top with homemade vegan guacamole or vegan cheese sauce.
- With vegan coconut shrimp and a mix of green leafy vegetables.
- Stuffed with air fryer frozen buffalo cauliflower and topped with vegan ranch or vegan tartar sauce.
- With my air fryer marinated tempeh and Mexican street corn.
- With my smoky tofu ground beef and shredded vegan cheese!
- Vegan whipped cream and berries such as strawberries or raspberries.
- Your favorite fruit jam like raspberry jam, strawberry jam, or another.
- A drizzle of nut butter such as peanut butter or almond butter.
- Melted chocolate or vegan chocolate hazelnut spread similar to Nutella.
- A sprinkle of chopped nuts like pecans, cashews, or almonds.
- A drizzle of maple syrup and/or a dust of powdered sugar.
How to store leftovers
Let the oat tortillas cool to room temperature, then transfer them to an airtight container and save them in the fridge for up to 5 days.

- Blend on high for 1 minute or until smooth and there are no large oat flakes visible. It's okay if the mixture is a little gritty. The consistency should be thinner than pancake batter, but not watery. Let the mixture rest for 20-30 minutes to allow the batter to thicken.
- Ideally, you'd want to use a non-stick skillet to cook the tortillas, but any kind of pan can work here. Heat the skillet over medium to medium-low heat and brush with a little bit of oil or spray with some non-stick cooking spray.
- Pour ¼ cup of the batter into the hot skillet and gently tilt the pan to spread it out into a thin and even layer. Cook for 4-5 minutes, or until bubbles appear and the edges start to pull away from the pan. Flip and cook for 3-4 minutes on the other side. Your tortilla is ready when it's golden brown on both sides.
- Remove from the heat and repeat the same steps with the rest of the batter, until it's used up. Serve these oat tortillas right away or store in an airtight container for later.
