Sandwich bread made from flourless plantain waffles!
Paleo sandwiches … On flourless waffle bread with only SIX ingredients!
I used to eat bread like crazy. Growing up it was white bread with everything: toast with breakfast, sandwiches for lunch and French bread with dinner was just normal. Even when I started changing my diet, I was eating a lot of gluten free bread before I realized I couldn’t tolerate that either.
But sometimes you just want a sandwich. Need a sandwich! Agreed?
Waffles are the perfect solution! You don’t have to spend over an hour making homemade loafs of grain-free bread, and you don’t have to spend your money on a ton of grain-free flours. Plus you can make the batter in your blender in seconds.
You don’t have to worry about them tasting like plantains because green plantains have a neutral flavor. These waffles are soft, bread-y and taste good in both savory and sweet sandwiches! I especially love them slathered with sunbutter and banana or made into a classic BLT.
Thank you flourless waffle bread! 😍
- 2 Large green plantains (2 pounds total)
- 4 Tablespoons avocado oil
- 2 Eggs
- 1 Teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 Tablespoon honey
- ½ Teaspoon sea salt
- 1 Teaspoon baking soda
- Peel the plantains, chop them into pieces and put them in the blender.
- Heat your waffle maker on high. The highest heat on my waffle maker is 6, and I always make these waffles on 4 or 5.
- Add the oil, eggs, lemon juice, honey and salt to the blender, and blend until the batter is smooth. Add in the baking soda and blend for another few seconds.
- Cook the batter in your waffle maker per its instructions and cool the waffles on a wire rack. Makes 10 waffles.
- Store any leftover waffles in ziplock bag in the freezer.
- Heat your oven to 350 degrees.
- Lay the waffles on a baking sheet and place in the oven for for 5-10 minutes.
- If your waffles are frozen, reheat them with the steps above.
- Heat a pan over medium heat and melt ghee in the pan. (Butter or coconut oil will work too)
- Spread a small amount of ghee on both sides of the waffle and place it in the pan. Let it toast for 1-2 minutes on each side until browned and crispy.
