How To Make Low Carb Breadcrumbs

Making your own low carb breadcrumbs is easy.  You can use these in any recipe where you would normally use regular breadcrumbs. 

These low carb breadcrumbs have approximately 1.5 g. of net carbs per tablespoon.  

Low Carb Tortillas (or other low carb bread) 
I use the Mission Carb Balance Tortillas which contain 6 g. net carbs per tortilla. 
4 tortillas make about 1 cup of breadcrumbs. 

(1) Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.  Place the tortillas directly on your oven rack.  
(2) Toast the tortillas until crispy and just lightly browned (approx. 7 minutes).  I flip mine half way through cooking. 
(3) Let the tortillas cool at room temperature.  Break into small pieces and run through a food processor until it is bread crumb consistency.  I use my Cuisinart Mini Prep.  I like it because it is small and easy to clean and store.  It has completely replaced my large food processor. 

(1) You can use the breadcrumbs as is or flavor them with salt, pepper, dried parsley, additional seasonings or parmesan cheese.

(2) You can keep the breadcrumbs for future use by placing them in a freezer bag and storing them in your freezer.

  1. I’ve never thought to do something like this; thanks so much for the recipe. It would also be a good way to use up tortillas that you might otherwise throw away because they’re “less than fresh”.

  5. There is store nearby in Largo FL called Lo Carb Connection that sells a wonderful 2 carb bread and also cinnamon raisin that is 4 carbs & makes a great French toast. Sami’s bakery in Tampa is the baking company. Both sell online. The bread makes great breading & I also put butter & garlic salt with parm cheese for spaghetti squash with sugar free Mario Batelli marinara.
