Grain Free Plantain Wraps/Flatbread
  • 2 whole plantains (preferably green, but riper is fine. As it yellows, it will be sweeter.)
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cups extra virgin olive oil (start with less and add as needed)
  • 1 Tbsp fresh herbs (Optional. If using, try cilantro, parsley or basil) (if using dry herbs, cut it back to 1 tsp)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Peel plantains (more difficult to peel than a banana, so use a knife!), cut into chunks.

  3. Add plantain chunks to blender or food processor along with garlic, salt and 1/3 c olive oil and herbs if using.

  4. Blend together until you  have a thick batter.  You may need to add more of the oil here, or you can add a Tbsp at a time of water to thin.

  5. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.  Pour batter onto parchment and use spatula to spread into a thin, even layer to cover almost the whole pan,  (layer will be very thin).

  6. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until it begins to bubble and brown slightly.

  7. Let it cool and peel off of parchment.  You can cut it into strips here and use for wraps, keep it whole and use for pizza crust, or bake it slightly longer and break into crackers. 

  8. Enjoy!  This will not last long, but if it does, refrigerate or freeze to keep longer.
