  • 1 Batch Grain Free Everything Dough
  • Tapioca flour for dusting and rolling
  • 1 egg white (from 1 large egg)
  • favorite filling (see Mexican Picadillo Recipe below)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Divide dough into 6 balls. Place back in mixing bowl and cover dough with a towel so it does not dry out. Place a sheet of parchment paper on a clean counter and dust generously with tapioca flour, this will be your rolling surface.
  3. Remove one ball of dough and form into a disk. Dust with tapioca flour and place on parchment paper. Roll into a 6 inch circle.
  4. Pour a small amount of filling over half of the dough, see photo above. I used a little over 1/4 cup of filling. Do not overstuff or the dough will tear.
  5. Fold dough in half and fold over the edges. Press down with fingers to seal edges.
  6. Using a large spatula, carefully place your finished grain free everything empanada on the parchment lined baking sheet. Brush with egg white all over.
  7. Repeat with remaining dough. Arrange finished empanadas on baking sheet. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until slightly golden.
  8. Allow to cool for 15 minutes before eating. Store leftovers in a sealed container in the fridge. Reheat chilled empanadas at 400 degrees for 10 minutes before serving.


Nutritional info includes 1 serving of picadillo in each enpanada.
