Chocolate Tortillas with Homemade Whipped Cream

These just happened and they were amazing!
Finger Licking Good apparently! I advise that you make a batch of tortillas the night or day before to save you time in the morning and to make this a fast morning treat. To reheat them I just turn the stove burner on low and place them right on top and then flip them letting them heat up per side for about 10 seconds. To make them fresh, you will need 2 cups of whole wheat flour and 2 cups of bread flour. 1/2 cup of cocoa powder. Mix together. Add 3/4-1 cup of water gradually. I normally add some before oil and after to see how dry or wet a batch is. Add 1/3 cup of coconut oil. 1-2 tbs of raw honey or agave nectar-- if you have a sweet tooth I don't see why you couldn't add more or less-- just don't add too much or the tortilla batter will get very sticky. I also added in about a half a scoop of chocolate whey protein powder as I am trying to up my personal intake of protein, but that is completely optional. The cocoa powder will give you all the chocolate coloring and flavor you need. Mix all ingredients together. Then take dough ball and roll it out on a floured surface into a log. Cut into 8-12 pieces depending on how big you want your tortillas. I did 12 pieces since we have little guys and then roll all the pieces into a ball and let sit for 15 minutes at least. When done, roll out on a generously floured surface into circle-- the thinner the better. Cook on a griddle or frying pan till bubbles appear on the top side. Flip and cook on the other side as well till bubbles appear.
For the whipped cream, use 1 and a half cups of organic heavy whipping cream, 1 tsp of vanilla, and 1 tbs of powder sugar. I would like to substitute honey one time and will let you know how it turns out, but for today, I used powder and it was so good-- way better than anything from the store! Whip on high till it well, looks like whipped cream. It will be very fluffy and stay on the beater when lifted out as opposed to when it is still a liquid and drips off the beaters.
Now take your warmed tortilla add some fresh berries and then some generous dollops of whipped cream and enjoy!!

Is that a frog on table next to Callie's plate? I am going to make the whipped cream tonight as I have whipping cream leftover from garlic soup. I think we will just use store bought tortillas, though. I'm intimidated by bread baking!

Angie, it is a toy frog that is scarily realistic looking ;) As far as bread making goes, tortillas are easier than a pancake to make! Ill have to share how we make our regular ones which are literally flour, oil, and water-- so simple!
