Plantain Tortilla Recipe (grain free/clean eating/paleo)

Taco Night!
Tacos are a staple in our house. Its the one food that all of us can eat and everybody be happy. I have tried different paleo/clean grain free tortillas before. I have had success with the Cauliflower tortillas but they are a mess to make and take a while to get perfect. The also include cheese and I try to stay away from dairy while training.
So when I came across The Paleo Secret recipe for plantain tortillas of course I had to try them.

I didn't have all of the ingredients that their recipe called for so made my own version.

Larisa's Plantain Tortillas
3 ripe yellow plantains
1/4 cup water
2 tbsp coconut oil
pinch of salt (I used about a 1/4 tsp)
1egg white
half lime squeezed

Preheat oven 350 degrees
Mix all ingredients in food processor or high power blender until mixture is nice and smooth.

Spread parchment paper (not wax paper) on top of baking pans. I sprayed my paper with coconut oil spray. You don't really have to it shouldn't stick. spread mixture onto parchment in circles. I made them about the size of a corn tortilla.

Place in 350 degree oven for about 15-18 minutes till they are golden brown.

I was amazed at how these tortillas turned out. they fold just like soft tortillas and they will even roll up if you want to make slightly larger ones for burritos.

Next was the taste test. I didn't want them to taste like a plantain. I was so pleased when I took my first bite of this awesome taco I built...

I filled my tacos with ground turkey meat mixed with Mrs. Dash salt free taco seasoning (love that stuff), avocado, pinch of mozzarella, and a spoonful of homemade salsa. Then I took a bite.
BAMMMMMMMM! AMAZING! and the best part is there is no plantain/banana taste. YAY!

I hope that you will take the time to make a healthier tortilla for your family. My kids and husband loved them. It feels good to know they are eating healthy. Make sure to tag me if you make them. You can find me on Instagram and Twitter both @0to26point2.
