Sweet Plantain Burger Rounds

The baked goods, the bread, the BUNS! Ahhhh!  Eating completely grain-free means you have to be super creative or you’re not getting any buns, hun. 🙂

It’s a hot August Friday night and we are barbecuing up some organic, angus beef burgers from Clear Creek Farm. Mmmmm!!! I have been thinking about this all day because I am looking forward to tryingIMG_6245 these “buns”.   I have been scouring the internet and reading recipes and reviews for the last few days, to come up with a suitable bun. This is the one, by “Stupid Easy Paleo”,  for a few reasons.  Anything to do with plantains and I am on board.   It’s an easy recipe with only a few simple ingredients.  It’s really quick aaaand the reviews were all positive. WIN!

  • 1 plantain-mostly yellow with only a bit of black.
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt

Put everything in your food processor and blend until smooth. You should have a nice smooth, but thick batter, like this…


If you like, you could add a touch of garlic, oregano, parsley,  or your flavour of choice into the batter to flavour the buns.

Notice how thick the batter is? Drop some into a med/low heated pan with your melted oil.  I used coconut oil. Make them the size you want.  You should get 4 regular size bun halves from this recipe. I was going to sprinkle some sesame seeds on top at this point, but I didn’t have any left. BOOO! Next time.   I think they are starting to look sort of “bun-ish!” YAY! Cook them on low for a few minutes,  then flip. Remove them from the heat and let them cool.

What’s this?? We have BUNS! Yes, but will they hold together???

Does’t this look fabulous? I seriously had this for dinner.
If you are wondering what that is on top of my burger, it’s THIS! I am obsessed with this delicious, natural, sugar free mustard! It comes in a ton of different flavours.

You know what else would be really good on these? My Homemade Mayo!

FullSizeRender 3They held together quite nicely too! We made the burgers a with a bit of a spicy kick and I really liked the sweet bun mixed with the savoury flavour from the meat. Dinner was delicious and I will definitely make these again, likely experimenting with some different added flavours. I will also be sure I have sesame seeds on hand.  Give them a try and don’t forget to let me know what you think of these Sweet Plantain Burger Rounds. Enjoy!!
