  • 1 large ripe plantain
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch sea salt


  1. In a food processor or blender, combine all the ingredients and process until it becomes a smooth batter.
  2. Load the batter into a ziplock bag. Cut off the corner. This is your pastry bag.
  3. In an oiled skillet (I used coconut oil), over medium low heat, pipe a circle of dough about the same size as your sliders or burgers. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side or until cooked through.

  4. I served mine as a slider with avocado, tomato, jalapeƱo sauerkraut and spinach.
