AIP Burger Buns

These burger buns are REALLY good! One of my pet peeves is making delicious looking biscuits only to find out that the center is paste-y and goo-y. Even if you bake it longer, it probably won't cook all the way through without burning the bottom. Yup. Not fun. I present to you....the most bread-y and delicious burger bun! These little guys are bread-y ALL the way through with a hint of plantain flavor. This makes them great for slathering honey on but really tasty when topped with a burger! This recipe uses a yellow plantain but also some plantain flour to add some starch to it (which is absolutely necessary!). Even my Dad who is not on the AIP said that the texture was great! SO, are you ready to eat some awesomeness?!

AIP Burger Buns

  • 1 yellow plantain
  • 1 Tablespoon of Gelatin
  • 1/4 cup + 3 Tablespoons of Plantain Flour
  • 4 Tablespoons of Coconut Flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon of Nutritional Yeast Flakes
  • pinch of Salt
  • pinch of Turmeric
  • pinch of Garlic Powder
  1. Peel and cut the plantain into large chunks. Then, pulse in a food processor until smooth. 
  1. Preheat oven to 350*.
  1. Carefully sprinkle the gelatin on top of the plantain and pulse to combine. Add the coconut and plantain flour and process until the dough gathers and sticks to itself like a ball and goes around and around in the food processor. 
  1. Let the dough sit for 5 minutes (to let the coconut flour absorb the moisture- very important!) and meanwhile, take a cookie sheet and line it with parchment (or a silicone liner). 
  1. Once the five minutes is up, take two spoons and scoop the dough onto the baking sheet. 
  1. Flatten the dough to make medium size rounds and pop them in the oven. 
  1. Let them bake for about 18 minutes, rotating the pan half way through. 
  1. Enjoy warm!
