What tortillas can you have while on the Daniel Fast? Many tortillas have ingredients that don’t fit the general guidelines of the Daniel Fast food list. For example, lard is an ingredient in some tortillas, and lard is an animal product. White flour is also present in many flour tortillas.
So what are your options for acceptable Daniel Fast tortillas? Look for tortillas made with whole wheat or whole grains, with no white flour, animal products, yeast, or added sugar. You can also make your own, if you prefer.
Below you’ll find our personal recommendations; keep in mind this isn’t an exhaustive list of every option (that’s nearly impossible!), but it’s a great start. You can find these online or in your local grocery store. We also have a recipe below for making your own!

Daniel Fast Tortillas
Daniel Fast Corn Tortillas
These El Milagro corn tortillas are a popular option for many of us on the Daniel Fast.
Made with stone-ground corn, water, and lime, and no preservatives, they’re as basic as you can get when it comes to store bought corn tortillas.
Daniel Fast Brown Rice Tortillas
Another option is trying a brown rice tortilla, like these Food For Life Brown Rice Tortillas. These make great wraps or burritos, and we love them filled up with quinoa, beans, corn, and other veggies.
The ingredients are Brown Rice Flour, Filtered Water, Tapioca Flour, Safflower Oil, Rice Bran, Vegetable Gum, and Sea Salt.
Daniel Fast Sprouted Grain Tortillas
We also love to use Food For Life’s Ezekiel Tortillas. They are made with sprouted whole grains and can often be found in the organic or natural foods freezer section of your grocery store. Amazon charges a crazy high price for them (they’re much more affordable at the grocery store!), but you can click here and see what the packaging looks like so you know what you’re looking for.
The ingredients are Organic Sprouted Wheat, Filtered Water, Organic Sesame Seeds, Organic Sprouted Soybeans, Organic Sprouted Barley, Organic Sprouted Millet, Organic Sprouted Lentils, Organic Sprouted Spelt, and Sea Salt.
Daniel Fast Homemade Tortillas
If you’d like to try to make your own homemade tortillas, here’s a popular recipe. Having a good tortilla press if helpful! Here’s an affordable one on Amazon that will make things go much easier for you.
Easy way to make your own tortillas if you can't seem to find store bought ones you like, or simply want to make tortillas from scratch.
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2/3 cup warm water
Mix together flour, oil, and salt in a medium bowl.
Slowly drizzle in the warm water, pausing to stir and mix together until a tacky dough is formed. (Add an additional tablespoon or two of water if needed).
Knead the dough in the bowl for two minutes, then let rest for 20 minutes.
Divide into 8 small, equal-sized balls.
Heat a lightly greased pan over medium high heat (or better yet, use a tortilla press).
Drop one ball of dough into the hot pan. Cook about one minute, until little bubble start to form on the surface.
Flip, cook about one more minute, and flatten with a large spatula. Remove from pan. Repeat with remaining seven balls of dough.
Store in airtight container.
