Ingredients

For the Tortilla Bowls

  • 4 6 inch flour tortillas
  • Coconut oil cooking spray
  • 1/3 cup cane sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Vanilla ice cream caramel sauce, chocolate syrup, strawberries and nuts for topping (optional)

Instructions

Tortilla Bowls

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon.
  • Wrap the tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave for 30 seconds. This makes it easier to bend them without tearing them.
  • Spray one side of the tortillas with cooking spray and sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar. Turn the tortillas over; repeat on the other side.
  • Flip a 12-cup muffin tin upside down, and nestle a tortilla in the space between 4 cups to form a "bowl." Repeat for the remaining 3 tortillas.
  • Bake at 350°F until the tortillas are crisp and golden brown, about 15 minutes. Allow to cool completely.
  • Add ice cream and toppings, as desired

Notes

  • Prep Tip: Lightly coat the tortillas with the coconut oil. If you put too much, they may end up becoming too soggy and won’t crisp up.
  • Baking Tip: If you notice any major air bubbles filling the center of the bowls while they’re baking, you can pop them with a toothpick and continue baking. This never happened in my experience, but it has happened with others.
  • Nutrition Note: The nutrition facts are for 1 tortilla without any ice cream or toppings.
