5 from 3 reviews

Simple tutorial on how to make roast breadfruit in the oven – paleo, gluten free and vegan.



  1. Preheat oven on 180 degrees celsius/356f or gas mark 4
  2. Wash and dry the breadfruit.
  3. Rub the entire breadfruit with coconut oil before wrapping it with foil. If roasting a whole breadfruit simply omit this step remove the stalk and score an X with a knife at the bottom.
  4. Place the breadfruit accordingly in the middle of the oven to roast. The cooking time will vary depending on the size. Half a breadfruit should take roughly an hour and a whole one should take 1 hr 30 minutes.
  5. Once cooked it should be soft and easy to pierce/prick with a knife.
  6. Remove from oven and allow to cool then cut in half (if cooking a whole breadfruit). If not, move onto scooping out the heart and discard (the part where the stalk was)
  7. Peel and cut the flesh into slices
  8. Line a baking try with parchment paper then use a pasty brush to coat each slice with coconut oil.
  9. Lay each slice on the parchment paper before placing back in oven to roast for a further 15 minutes or until golden brown – don’t forget to turn over half way through.
  10. Serve accordingly
