Bread is back baby. Oh yes, this tastes like actual bread. (Note: we haven’t eaten bread for a few years so to be honest, we don’t really remember, but if you want something bread-like, this recipe from COOKITUPPALEO is definitely the one. We’ve made it LOADS of times now and although we sometimes have to adjust slightly to add a bit more flour it always turns out well. We’ve had it as baguette, as garlic ‘bread’, as bruschetta. Basically it’s amazing.

Serves: 4 (or one very hungry five year old!)
Prep time: 20 mins
Cooking time: 50 mins
Total time: 1 hour, 10 mins (but totally worth it – it’s BREAD!)


  • Green plantains (or very slightly yellow) peeled and sliced – we get ours  from the local Caribbean shop or market but you can also get them on Amazon (by the box of ten)
  • Coconut oil 1/3 cup melted.
  • Unflavoured gelatin – 1tbsp (we like this one)
  • Tiger nut flour – ½ cup
  • Cassava flour – ¼ cup
  • Salt 1/3 teaspoon
  • Baking soda ½ teaspoon
  • Apple cider vinegar ½ tsp


For the method head on over to Cook it up Paleo where she even has a handy video alongside her step-by-step instructions.


We have:

  • Used this as baguette for chicken liver pate
  • Made it into garlic bread by adding crushed garlic and olive oil in between slices and baking for a further 5-10 minutes in foil
  • Made it into pizza slices with whizzed up roasted veg and tomato sauce and cashew cheese for a kids’ lunch
  • Sliced thinly and lightly toasted then rubbed with a raw garlic clove to make ‘melba toasts’
