    -2 eggs

    -1 teaspoon melted butter or coconut oil

    -1 teaspoon coconut flour

    -pinch of salt

    -1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract (if using a sweet crepe application)

1.  Crack the eggs into a medium-sized bowl and whisk in the melted ghee, butter or coconut oil.  For a thinner tortilla, add one tablespoon of water.  If using as a crepe sweet application, add vanilla extract also.

2.  Add the dry ingredients, arrowroot powder, coconut flour and salt to the wet ingredients. Beat well to combine.

3. In a small, 8” skillet, over medium heat, pour in about 1/3 of the batter and immediately roll it around to evenly coat the bottom.  The tortilla should start to pull away fro the edges as it cooks.

4.  Cook for 1 minute on each side.

5.  To store, cool completely and put in a plastic bag or airtight glass container.
