Serves 8

Liven up your fruit salad this summer with fresh and healthy chocolate tortillas. These kid-friendly dessert tacos are so wholesome you can eat them for breakfast!


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 4 tablespoons agave nectar
  • 1-1/2 cups warm water
  • 1 small papaya
  • 1 mango
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 2 kiwis
  • Juice from one lime



Step one

In a large bowl combine the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, salt and cocoa powder. Whisk all the ingredients to combine.



Step two

Add coconut oil, agave nectar and warm water to the bowl of dry ingredients.



Step three

Mix the ingredients together with a wooden spoon until a large ball of dough forms.



Step four

Transfer the ball of dough to a floured work surface and knead the dough for five minutes, adding additional flour if the dough becomes too sticky to handle.



Step five

Cut the ball of dough in half and roll both pieces back into a ball. Continue to cut the balls of dough in half until you have 16 even pieces. Let the dough rest for 10 minutes.



Step six

Transfer one ball of dough to a floured work surface and roll the dough into a circle that is one- quarter inch thick and about five inches in diameter.



Step seven

Heat a cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Do not add oil to the pan because the tortillas need to be cooked on a dry surface. Once the skillet is hot, add the rolled out dough and cook for 30 seconds.



Step eight

Flip the tortilla and cook for an additional 30 seconds. Repeat until all of the dough has been used and you have 16 cooked tortillas. Transfer the tortillas to a plate lined with a damp paper towel.



Step nine

Wash all the fruit for the fruit salad. Measure blueberries, chop strawberries, peel and dice kiwis, dice mango, remove the seeds from papaya and peel the skin. Dice the papaya into bite-sized pieces and place all of the fruit in a dish. Drizzle the fruit with the juice of the lime. 


Step ten

To serve, place one chocolate tortilla on a serving plate.


Step eleven

Add a handful of blueberries, several pieces of diced kiwi, a few pieces of chopped mango, several pieces of diced papaya and a handful of strawberries to the center of one chocolate tortilla.


Step twelve

Top the fruit with additional toppings of your choice. Chocolate sauce, shredded coconut, fresh mint and honey all work wonderfully.

A lot of money for ingredients and a lot of time for not great taste. The cocoa flavor was lost. We were disappointed.

Is there any nutrition information for the Chocolate Tortilla recipe?

Linda September 06, 2013 | 9:25 AM

I made this with store purchased flour tortillas. I then buttered each tortilla some with Chocolate cream cheese some with Nutella. Then added the fruit. Was really good

I cannot use coconut oil, will any oil work?

Food Editor July 01, 2013 | 12:48 PM

Patti - You could try substituting palm shortening for the coconut oil, although we haven't tried it in this recipe.

Patti July 01, 2013 | 6:34 AM

I'm allergic to coconut. Do you have a suggestion for swapping the coconut oil?

Barbara June 27, 2013 | 1:06 PM

Really horrible don't waste your time!! I spent the whole evening doing these came to eat them awful, just ended up removing fruit from them!!

Beth April 25, 2013 | 8:30 AM

These were great! My kids even suggested I comment, sending you compliments. :-) I did sub almond flour and coconut flour for half of the wheat/white flour. And a little tiny smear of nutella under the fruit is excellent. Thanks!

Brittney March 31, 2013 | 12:04 PM

These look amazing. AND, bonus, they're vegan. Will be serving them with whipped coconut cream. A-MA-ZING!!!!

What would the calorie count be on one if made exactly like the picture and directions?

Ash February 22, 2013 | 7:15 AM

I used yogurt as a topping for this and it was AMAZING

chandra November 29, 2012 | 2:52 PM

Can u bake the tortilla instead? I have the perfect taco bowl thing could I put the tortilla in in and bake and then make a bowl for the fruit?

Lauren November 29, 2012 | 10:31 AM

Oh wow, this looks incredible! Such a great idea for breakfast, dessert, or an afternoon snack. I'm totally going to have to make this!

David August 29, 2012 | 12:03 PM

Brie August 18, 2012 | 6:19 PM

Looks yummy! Any substitute to make these with white chocolate instead of cocoa? Thanks!

Stephanie August 11, 2012 | 12:44 PM

Looks great - trying this in a week just added it to my shopping list :)

Tracey July 05, 2012 | 10:10 AM

This looks like a fab recipe for my fruit loving, chocolate fiend 4 year old. Can I substitute honey for the agave nectar, or would it be too thick?

Lisa Lee July 01, 2012 | 7:35 PM
