Plantain English Muffins (AIP, Paleo)

I can’t even remember the last time I ate a “doughy-white” english muffin. I have a vague memory of eating them in my high school days before school in the morning. 

I was health conscious as a teenager and I used to think that english muffins, egg whites and margarine was the way to go. Boy was I wrong!

As I make my through the AIP protocol, there are lots of creative recipes I’m excited to re-create and dive into. I think it’s really easy to overcomplicate recipes and meal planning. It doesn’t have to be complicated. We spend so much time thinking about what we ‘CAN’T’ eat, when it’s much easier to focus on what we ‘CAN.’

Change your way of thinking and you’ll have greater success on any diet plan. It’s important to get into the right mindset for healing. This is exactly what we’ll be teaching in the Healing and Dealing with Hashimoto’s program. If you have Hashimoto’s or an autoimmune condition, click here to check out how this program can help you heal and transform your condition. 

I recipe tested some english muffins last weekend and they were an epic fail! I baked them in the oven and every 10 minutes kept checking if there were ready. They were a pile of mush and they wouldn’t harden. I had to throw them out. They were completely inedible. 

So, onto recipe #2. The winner. These gluten free gems are amazing!

Now let’s get real for a minute here…. these don’t taste like your traditional english muffins, I mean, they don’t even look like them for that matter. But they are delicious and perfect topped with some nut butter (not AIP), or coconut cream and raspberry jam; which is exactly what I did. 

I’ll be baking up a batch of these english muffins this weekend and I’ll top them with some guac and bacon. Mmmm!

Savoury or sweet, the muffins work either way. 

A few key things to note before baking them:

  1. I baked them in 2 circular pyrex oven safe dishes, like the image you see here. I only have 2, but this recipe below made 3. Once the first batch was done, I baked the last english muffin on it’s own. 
  2. 4 ramekins would work well for this recipe, but I don’t have any. I’ll definitely be getting some though! I’ve been needing them for multiple recipes. 
  3. Make sure to divide you batter evenly for 3 servings (or 4 if using ramekins).

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do. They are so good and perfect for your AIP breakfasts! I suggest doubling your batch and making extra so you can freeze them and have on hand for easy meal prep.

  1. 1 large ripe plantain
  2. 2 Tbsp avocado oil (olive oil or melted coconut oil would work well too)
  3. 1⁄4 Cup +1 Tbsp tapioca starch
  4. 2 Tbsp coconut flour
  5. 1 tbsp apple sauce
  6. 1 tsp baking soda
  7. 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  8. Pinch of sea salt
  1. Preheat your oven to 375F. Grease 2-4 ramekins or pyrex dishes with coconut oil.
  2. Roughly chop the plantains and place in a food processor with the remaining ingredients.
  3. Blend until smooth and creamy.
  4. Divide your batter into equal portions (2-4). Place batter into greased ramekins and using a spatula or back of a spoon, evenly spread it out. This equals ONE english muffin. Once it's baked you'll cut it in half.
  5. Bake for 15-18 minutes. The pyrex dishes are slightly larger than ramekins, so I found I needed at least 17-18 minutes, but you may need less time if baking in ramekins.
  6. Let cool slightly, remove from dish and slice in half.
  7. Place in the toaster/toaster oven for a few minutes to crisp up (optional). I like mine slightly toasted. Top with your favourite toppings and enjoy!

All Access Pass to The Thyroid Sessions- Heal Your Thyroid NOW!

What if I were to tell you that just about every conventional doctor overlooks (or should I say, ignores) one incredibly common health problem that affects 200 million people worldwide and can be the cause of literally any symptom under the sun?

Would you be interested to find out what it is and whether or not it’s affecting you?

If so, keep reading.

Although your thyroid is a relatively small, butterfly-shaped gland sitting inside your throat, it is responsible for the metabolism of literally every cell in your body.

In other words, the trillions of cells that make up your body are “fueled up” by your thyroid. It literally keeps your body fired up and running on all cylinders. That’s big!

But, if your thyroid were to slow down, you can probably imagine how your cells would become sluggish and how it would affect how you feel. Probably something like this:

You feel fatigued.

Brain is foggy.

Mood is depressed, or even anxious.

Digestion slows down.

Hair may fall out.

Bodyweight become more and more challenging to keep in check.

Sound familiar?

Again, your doctor may send you on your way with a pat on the back, or maybe a prescription for the latest breakthrough in pharmacology.

But what if your symptoms were rooted in no more than a thyroid problem your doc never took the time to look into?

Would you just go on for the rest of your life being told “there’s nothing wrong with you” or stuck with some prescription drug?

It’s very possible.

Here’s the thing…

There’s something you need to know about how medicine works.

Conventional medicine tends to lag a decade or so behind the latest research, and millions of people are unnecessarily suffering because of it.

So, we can either wait until the year 2024 and let the docs get caught up, or we can just do it ourselves and BECOME THE EXPERTS on our own thyroids.

Which would you choose?

And that’s why our friend Sean Croxton of Underground Wellness interviewed 24 of the world’s leading experts on thyroid health — to get the bottom of this ignored epidemic and find out what you can do to feel like yourself again.

You’ll find out:

* Exactly which tests to order up. Remember, your doc works for YOU!
* How to interpret your test results the right way and what to do about them.
* Thyroid-healing foods to add to your diet. (And which foods to remove.)
* Natural detox and gut healing strategies to give your thyroid a boost.
* Which medications are safe and make sense as part of your healing protocol.
* When thyroid surgery is NOT the best option, and when it is.

Sean has compiled all 24 of his “Thyroid Sessions” into a user-friendly digital collection of thyroid-healing information that will put YOU in charge of your health.

You’ll get LIFETIME streaming and downloadable access to:

* 11 super high quality, HD on-camera video sessions (These look amazing!)
* 11 Google Hangout expert interview sessions
* 2 HD cooking videos with Recipe Guide
* Easy-to-download mp3 audio files for each interview session

Once the event officially ends this Sunday night at 11:59pm Pacific, the price for this package will go up to $149.

But this weekend you can get it for only $79, or 2 payments of $39.50.

I missed a few videos last week so I’m looking forward to catching up on the ones I missed. Plus I’m looking forward to the recipe guide, since you know I love to cook!
