Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.

  • Blend plantain, eggs, olive oil, and salt in a food processor until smooth, scraping down sides occasionally. Spread plantain mixture into a rectangle about 1/2-inch thick onto the prepared baking sheet; sprinkle salt over the top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until bread is lightly browned and holds together, about 15 minutes. Cool on pan for about 5 minutes before slicing with a pizza cutter.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

I tried this recipe yesterday since I don't use gluten and am always looking for new gluten-free recipes. This recipe was simple to make and amazingly good. You have to like the flavor of plantains though. I love it! I made it this time with green plantains which have a more savory flavor. I also added a little bit of garlic powder. The next time I make this recipe I will try it with ripe plantains and I bet it will also be good only sweeter. Ripe plantains are very sweet. Depending on how you cut it you can use it in different ways. Thank you AlliS for this recipe! Read More

Super easy to make but for some reason we couldn't get it "dry" enough. We used a yellow plantain so there was more banana taste than a green one might have had. Used recipe as stated. It wasn't bad and we will try it again. Have been doing a paleo lifestyle the last week and it has been very satisfying. The recipes from this site have been helpful and added to the ones I am using from a book I purchased. Read More

Great base recipe. You can tweak as needed. I added cinnamon and honey to the batter and topped with nut butter once done...my picky eaters gobbled it up. Perfect for those carb craving moments. Read More

We thought this was "ok": for the health benefits of not eating flour bread this is a good alternative. I seasoned what I made with garlic powder salt and sesame seeds on top prior to baking. I also baked the bread for about 20 minutes as opposed to 15 minutes. Drawback I found its only good the first day. Next day this lost its attraction for me. Won't make it again. Read More

This is my favorite paleo bread so far. I especially like the sweetness from the plantains when they are really ripe. So easy to make. Read More

I just made this and it's perfect for a snack with a teaspoon of almond butter or even as a dessert. It relieves the cravings for carbs as well as the sweets.?? Read More

The texture is amazing looks like bread and has a slightly tangy taste. You could do a lot with this. Best part is how easy it is to make. Read More
