1 cup almond flour or any other flour you would like.
1 cup coconut flour flour
1 very ripe plantain
2 tsp chia seeds +½ cup water
¼ cup almond or coconut milk
¼ cup coconut oil melted
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp vanilla
1 ½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda¼ tsp salt
1 tbsp Marine Collagen (optional)
1 cup chocolate bits (optional)
- Preheat your oven to 350°F
- Grease and flour a 9×5 loaf pan and set it aside
- In a bowl, combine the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
- In a separate bowl, smash the ripe plantain until it is pretty smooth, then add in the chia seeds and water mixture, almond milk, coconut oil, apple cider vinegar, and vanilla. Whisk until the wet mixture is combined. – Obs. What I do here is that I mix the apple cider vinegar with the milk and set aside to let it merge with each other!
- Create a well in the bowl with the flour mixture, and pour in the liquid mixture and mix until it is just combined. Do not over mix!
- Pour the plantain bread/cake batter into the prepped loaf pan, and bake in the preheated oven for 50- 55 minutes.
- Allow the plantain bread/cake to cool in the pan for 5 minutes, remove from the pan and cool for another 15 minutes, then serve.
Ps. When baking with coconut flour, please follow the measurements properly.
I have baked with this recipe 3 times now and I have amend this recipe all the times. The first time I made my own oat flour and mixed it with coconut flour, the second time I mixed oat flour, almond flour and coconut flour. This time I mixed oat flour and coconut flour only. I also put some chocolate bits inside the mixture. Great mix, the plantain bread with chocolate bits.
Made my own coconut milk and use the shredded bits for a smooth scrub. Works perfectly. Less waste!
The riper the plantain is, the sweeter it will taste and you don’t need sugar at all.
Moist, sweet and yeah tasty because it has this amazing chocolate my friend got me from Peru. Thumbs up!
