Vegan Sweet Potato Tortillas

Do you like sweet potato? I personally love it, and I have a lot of fun incorporating it in different recipes.

Making your own tortillas is very easy and I highly recommend you to try it if you are used to buying industrial tortillas. This recipe has become one of our favorites and I keep re-making it!

Now, making your own homemade tortillas does take more time than buying them, but honestly it is SO worth it in terms of taste and health. These tortillas taste just as good – if not better! – as the store-bought ones and are amazingly soft.

2-Ingredient Soft, Healthy and Delicious Vegan Sweet Potato Tortillas

Yes, you read that right. You will only need 2 ingredients to make these delicious and healthy tortillas. No oil or weird ingredients involved – just sweet potato and flour.

The first time I made these tortillas, I was very surprised by how soft and flexible they were considering that they don’t contain any oil. To make sure they stay flexible for a couple of days, make sure to stack the cooked tortillas on a plate covered with a clean kitchen towel while you cook the rest.

You can use these tortillas to make wraps, quesadillas, burritos, enchiladas or tacos. We love to make tacos and fill them with fresh vegetables and homemade falafels!

Can I Use Gluten-Free Flour?

I personally haven’t tried making these tortillas with gluten-free flour, but other readers have used cassava flour with success. The tortillas ended up flexible and delicious. If you do try these tortillas with gluten-free flour, please let me know so I can update the recipe notes to help other readers.

Can I Use Regular Potato?

Yes, you can use regular potato instead of sweet potato. I have tried both versions many times and I can’t say which one is my favorite. Sweet potato does give the tortillas a very pretty color and adds a delicious taste, though 🙂

how to make tortillas

Vegan Sweet Potato Tortillas | 2 Ingredients, Oil-Free

Yield: 5 medium-sized tortillas
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes

These Vegan Sweet Potato Tortillas only require two ingredients and are very easy to make. They are very soft and flexible and are perfect for wraps, tacos and burritos.


  • 150 g sweet potato, mashed (3/4 cup)
  • 130 g all-purpose flour (1 cup)


  1. To a mixing bowl, add the mashed sweet potato and the flour and stir until well-combined. Use your hands to form a dough ball. It should not be too sticky.
  2. Separate the dough ball into 5 equal parts. Dust your working surface with flour and roll out each tortilla with a rolling pin (they should be roughly 1/2 cm thick). Don't make them too thin, otherwise they won't be as soft and flexible.
  3. Place the tortillas in a hot pan over medium-high heat and cook for 1 minute on both sides. Stack the cooked tortillas on a plate covered with a clean kitchen towel while you cook the rest. This will allow them to stay very flexible.

    Do you need to cook the sweet potato first please?

    • June 21, 2018 / 4:41 pm

      Hi Pauline!
      Yes, you do need to cook the sweet potato first and then mash it. I like to bake it whole at 200°C for 40 minutes or until fork-tender.
      Let me know how it went 🙂

          Hi Denise!
          I haven’t tried this recipe with gluten-free flour yet, so I’m not sure how the tortillas would turn out. Would I try it, I would use a combination of chickpea flour and tapioca starch to keep the tortillas soft. I hope this helps!
          If you do try it, let me know and I can mention it in the recipe notes to help other readers 🙂

    Can you please convert the recipe to cups? I tried on my own but some things convert differently. For instance, 130 gram of flour is a cup and then when I look up how many grams in a cup it’s 150g per cup so I’m getting very confused 🤷‍♀️ Thank you.

      They should stay soft and flexible for a couple of days if you keep them stacked on a plate covered with a kitchen towel. They are also great for freezing.

    Hello . Can I make them with almond flour. It will work ? Thanks

    • November 27, 2018 / 5:11 pm

      Hmm it might work, but I would add a few tablespoons of tapioca flour to help the dough be flexible since there is no gluten in almond flour.
      Do let me know how it goes if you try this recipe with almond flour 🙂

    • June 11, 2019 / 7:23 am

      Thank you 🙂
      These tortillas should be frozen after cooking. Simply stack them (separate each tortilla with a piece of parchment paper so they don’t stick to each other) and place them in a freezer bag. Freeze for up to 4 months. Before using, let the tortillas thaw and reheat in a frying pan or in the oven, or enjoy them cold.
      I hope this helps!

    These were soooo good we had tacos tonight I had made these intentionally for me and bought the husband his taco shells he says I’ll try them and the store bought pack DIDNT get opened!! They were a hit!! Lol I was wondering could one try oat flour? And If we used them as pizzas how long would they get baked for and at what temperature?

    • April 3, 2020 / 8:19 am

      Haha that’s amazing! I’m glad you guys both loved my recipe!
      I’ve never tried making these tortillas with oat flour though so I’m not sure about the final result. If you want to make them gluten-free, you can use cassava flour instead of regular flour.
      However, I do have a pizza crust recipe that’s made with sweet potato and oat flour (Vegan Sweet Potato Crust Pizza) – maybe you’re interested 🙂
      To answer your question, if I’m using these tortillas for pizza I usually bake them at 350°F (180°C) for 10 minutes. If you’re using veggies as toppings, make sure to cut them finely so they cook quickly.
      I hope this helps!

    Hi do we store them in fridge or on counter covered is ok? And for how long will they last before freezing.

    • April 21, 2020 / 8:46 am

      Hi Elizabeth!
      These tortillas keep well for 3-4 days at room temperature. I recommend you to stack them on a plate as soon as they are cooked and to cover them with a clean kitchen towel. This will allow them to stay soft and flexible. Keep in mind that they will lose some of their flexibility after 1-2 days, though.
      Then, you can freeze them for up to 4 months if you want.
      I hope this helps!

    Made them with freshly ground whole wheat and sweet potato. They are good, but I wonder why there is no salt in the recipe? Noone mentioned that they needed salt, so I tried the original recipe. I will try adding a tsp. salt next time. I also want to try them with regular potato. I want to try the sweet potato and gluten free flour as well. Thanks for the recipe.

    • July 12, 2020 / 8:58 am

      Hi Jenny,

      You should be fine setting the dough aside until the evening. Simply wrap it in a plastic bag and place it in the fridge until you are ready to use it.
