Baked Plantain

  • Author: Karen Stephenson


  • Fresh large plantain leaves (washed and dried)
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp. wheat germ
  • 2 tbsp. spiked salt (or a variety of spices of your choosing)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Combine the flour, water, egg, wheat germ and spices into a bowl and mix well. Dip leaves into the batter and place onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Be sure to not to overlap for best results.
  3. Bake 5 -10 minutes if the leaves used are very large. If the plantain leaves are smaller then start watching them at about the 3-4 minute mark to ensure they do not burn.
  4. Serve warm or once cooled!
