Taro Root-Plantain Bread (Paleo, Gluten-Free, Nut-Free, Sugar-Free)

Taro Root-Plantain Bread (Paleo, Gluten-Free, Nut-Free, Sugar-Free)

Taro root that is my favorite among the tubers and roots, so you can figure out I have been talking and developing recipes with it for a while and I plan to do more, not only for the taste but the beneficial ingredients it has for us, including the plantain and their flour.

I saw several recipes of taro bread, but what I don´t like in those recipes is they have a large amount of flour in the dough, so I decided to cut that quantity of flour, to decrease the carbs content, and see how would the bread come out?  you know what? it tastes amazing, it¨s a little dense but holds together perfectly, you can leave it on the counter covered up for 2-3 days and then store it in the fridge if there is any piece left.


Do not throw away or be scared of the very mature plantain, it¨s not rotten, is extremely sweet at this point and has begun to ferment, a thing that is very good for our gut also can be used for frying or making desserts.








Besides, this bread it is a good replacement for others that can harm us, filled with oxidized oils, or trans fats, gluten, and preserves, this is a good gluten-free, nut-free, and sugar- free alternative, with proteins, healthy fats, carbs, fiber, vitamins, minerals, and resistant starch, all of the ingredients used for it are healthy and organic, also it has a pleasant savor of garlic, and you can use it with any main dish, soups, fried eggs, butter or any pesto you like, or as a sandwich, it does not break apart, and these slices can be toast in a grill very well as you can see in the picture below.

Pour the dough on the bread pan.

Bake it between 50-60 minutes, depends on your oven until a toothpick comes clean.

The bread will puff up, then it will deflate a little.

Let cool it between 20-30 minutes before slicing it.

Enjoy it!

Note: You can use any oil as I described above, however, I think this bread it´s better with the olive oil or ghee because they add a nice taste to it.

The recipe serves 9 slices of bread.

Total Time: 1:10 min
