Paleo Plantain Buns

Ingredients

2 green plantains

1/3 cup full fat coconut milk  

1/4 cup melted coconut oil 

1 gelatin egg*

1/2 tsp baking soda

3 TBSP coconut flour  

pinch sea salt


*To make a gelatin egg: Take 1 TBSP grassfed gelatin and mix with 1 TBSP cold water until dissolved, then add 2 TBSP boiling water and beat until it is frothy


Directions

1. Preheat your oven to 350F

2. Peel and chop the plantains

3. Add the plantains, coconut milk, coconut oil and coconut butter to your food processor and process until smooth (a powerful blender would probably also work, but I have not tested it) 

4. Transfer plantain mix to a large bowl

5. Add remaining ingredients and mix well 

6. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper

7. Form the buns by transferring dough back and forth between hands until you have a large disc (approximately 8-10 cm in diameter and 0.5-1cm thick)

8. Place buns on baking sheet and bake for 15-16 minutes on one side and then flip with a large spatula and cook for another 4-6 minutes (they should be brown on both sides and hold together easily)

7. Remove from oven and let the buns cool on the baking sheet for 30-60 minutes before enjoying


Yield: 4 large buns
