Recipe type: Snack
Serves: 4
  • 1½ Green Plantains, cut into small pieces (approximately 1.5 cups)
  • 2 tbsp Nutiva Organic Hempseed
  • 1 tbsp Flaxseed + 3 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp Nutiva Organic Chia Seed + 3 Tbsp. water
  • 1½ tbsp Nutiva Organic Coconut Flour
  • 2 tbsp Nutiva Organic Coconut Oil, (measured then melted)
  • 1 tsp Turmeric
  • 1 tbsp Basil
  • ¾ tsp Sea Salt
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Gather and measure all ingredients.
  3. Line a 9x12 pan with parchment paper. (Cut the parchment paper so it fits the pan almost exactly. This will make it easier to spread the flatbread batter to the edges, and then to peel off once baked.)
  4. Place chia seeds, flaxseeds and water into a small dish. Stir, and set aside, allowing it to “gel” for at least 5 minutes.
  5. Place plantain pieces, hempseed, coconut flour, turmeric, basil and sea salt in a blender or food processor.
  6. Add in the chia seed and flaxseed mixture.
  7. Blend mixture until it reaches a smooth consistency, scraping down the sides about halfway through (you don’t want any large pieces of plantain).
  8. Spread mixture onto the parchment paper, covering the pan until it’s smooth and even.
  9. Bake on the second shelf of the oven for 17 minutes.
  10. Serve immediately.

    What is 1 Tbsp Sasil in your recipe? Do you mean basil? How long will this last if there are leftovers, and what is the best way to store leftovers? Thanks!

    • Sarah Kay Hoffman says

      Hi Joanne! Yes, 1 tbsp. basil. Our apologies. This has been updated. You should store your leftovers in the fridge. It should last for up to a week. Enjoy!

    • Sarah Kay Hoffman says

      Hi Mia! Yes it can be. The only thing to keep in mind is that when doubling and/or tripling batch size, the ingredient amount doesn’t typically exponentially increase at the same rate. Play with it, and have fun! You can freeze these.

    I just made these, and they are way too soft…they did not crisp up at all, but stayed a puree consistency. Any suggestions?

    • Sarah Kay Hoffman says

      Hi Kass! The way to get them crisp is by making sure the mixture lays out as flat as possible on your pan. If you produced too much batter, you might try going up a size in pan so that you can spread it out even more. The flatter, the better, in order to achieve that crisp texture. I have made them both ways, so it’s just a matter of personal preference. Hope that helps!
