  • This recipe for whole wheat tortillas doesn't use baking powder because it's not necessary. Baking powder is typically used in recipes that include all-purpose flour, as it helps the dough rise and become fluffy. However, when using whole wheat flour, the dough tends to be denser, and baking powder can make the tortillas taste bitter. Instead, the recipe uses warm water to help the dough become more pliable and easier to roll out.

  • The dough can be made ahead of time and refrigerated for up to 24 hours.

  • Olive oil has a strong distinctive taste, so if you prefer a milder taste, replace with canola oil, vegetable oil or any other tasteless cooking oil.
