  2. Divide the dough into 8 balls and dust a surface with coconut flour. Roll each ball into a round and trim around a 20cm side plate to form a perfect round.
  3. Melt a little coconut oil in a pan and fry each round for about 2 minutes on each side until golden.

  5. Return to the pan and cook each quesadilla for 2 minutes, pressing down with a spatula until the cheese melts. Flip again and cook the other side for a further 2 minutes.
  6. Repeat until you have 4 filled, cooked quesadillas.
  7. To serve: Cut into quarters and serve with chopped baby tomatoes and fresh herbs.
