Plaintain Cakes/Fritters

Recommended Posts

I stumbled upon this recipe. It looks super yummy, but I am wondering if it truly whole30, without crossing the line of "baking/recreating".... thoughts? 

 

  1. 1 Plantain (yellow or yellow/brown works best)
  2. 1/4 to 1/3 cup Avocado Oil (or frying oil of choice)
  3. 1 Tablespoon Tapioca Starch/Flour
  4. Sea Salt

Are you blending these into a batter/paste and then cookign them like pancakes?

Tostones are sliced plantain that are pan fried, smashed and then panfried again. These are fine, but turning the plantain into a batter would be walking a very fine line.

It seems like the instructions have me blending it and then baking it. So I am guessing it would qualify as a pancake type food? But I could cook, smash, and cook them again? 

 

Thank you for your help!
