Plantain and Coconut Pork Patties

Servings 8 patties
Author Sonia! The Healthy Foodie


  • 650 g pork loin cut into 1” cubes
  • ½ ripe plantain sliced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper finely chopped
  • ½ cup toasted organic coconut chips
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 whole egg
  • ½ tsp Himalayan or unrefined sea salt
  • ½ tsp freshly cracked black pepper
  • ½ tsp chai spice (see this post for my spice mix
  • 1 cup toasted organic coconut chips coarsely ground (or shredded)


  • Cut the pork into 1" cubes and place them in the bowl of your food processor. Process on pulse until the meat reaches the right consistency. Add the rest of the ingredients, save for the last cup of dried coconut, and process on pulse until well combined.
  • Divide your pork mixture into 6-8 equal portions and form into patties. Completely cover each patty with shredded coconut and set aside.
  • Add some coconut oil to a large skillet and heat over medium high heat. When skillet is hot enough, add patties and cook until a nice golden crust forms, about 4-5 minutes, then flip to the other side, cover and cook until golden again and patties are cooked through, about 5 minutes.
  • Serve immediately with a dollop of chilled canned coconut milk and more coconut shavings, if desired.
