Paleo Easy Plantain Flat Bread – a gluten free, dairy free and completely paleo alternative to conventional bread! Made with only three ingredients!
I couldn’t wait to post up this recipe! This Easy Plantain Flat Bread has honestly been a life-saver for my Paleo journey. I used to LOVE conventional bread. Whenever I was on the go, I would almost always buy myself a brown bread sandwich, whether to take advantage of the Marks and Spencer meal deal (i think these guys made the best sandwiches) or if I was just starving and needed something to keep me going for the day. I mean, what is a sandwich without the perfect loaf to house all the goodness in, right?
Well, when I first started the Paleo journey I think this was my biggest challenge.
White/brown flour, wheat, gluten, it’s all completely out of the question on the Paleo diet and so I had to find another solution. Needless to say, the Paleo community is awesome and I found many different recipes to make bread, whether it was banana bread, actual sandwich bread and now in this case Plantain flat bread.
Most sandwich “breads” use the infamously expensive Almond flour but since it can be quite dear, I use the next best thing: Coconut Flour. However, this gluten free and dairy free bread is actually flourless! I adapted this recipe from the lovely ladies over at PurelyTwins and have not stopped making it since. It is super easy and simple, all you need is a working blender and you’re good to go!
MORE DELICIOUS BREAKFAST IDEAS:
- 1 green/yellow plantain (if choosing a yellow plantain, make sure its more on the yellow side, no dark spots please!)
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- Pinch of Sea Salt
Preheat your oven to 175°C (350°F).
Cut off the ends of the plantain and remove the skin. It can be a little tricky with a green plantain so just make a few slits around it and use a pairing knife to peel the skin away. Once skin is removed, cut the plantain into 4/5 smaller pieces.
First add your eggs and coconut oil to your blender (makes for easier blending when you add liquids or liquid-y items first) and then add your plantain pieces and salt.
Blend until a smooth liquid but a few little bits leftover is not a problem. Just a few though!
Pour the liquid batter into a baking tray lined with parchment paper (or baking paper, i haven’t tried this with foil paper so not sure if it would stick to it) and spread the liquid to form the “Flat” shape to your bread.
Bake for 15-20 mins. Once done, let it cool before cutting up to your desired slice shape.
