Whole Wheat Tortillas

6 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups warm water
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp salt
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

Combine water and oil in a bowl.  Add baking powder and salt and mix well to dissolve any lumps.  Stir in flour until dough is combined but not stiff.  Let it stand for 10 minutes.

Shape into 20 balls and let it rest for ten more minutes.  Place each ball on a floured surface and roll into an 8-10 inch circle.  Bake on a lightly greased skillet (I like cast iron) until done but not browned.  On medium-high heat it will take about 30 seconds per side.
