Ulu (breadfruit) “pie”

ulu (breadfruit) "pie"

Breadfruit is surprising! It can be baked like flour. This “pie” was an unexpected delight-sweet, naturally wheat-free and organically yummy.


  1. 1 1/2 cups breadfruit
  2. 2 bananas
  3. 1/4 cup macadamia nuts, chopped
  4. 4 dates, seeded & chopped
  5. 1 tsp. baking soda
  6. 2 tbsp. dried coconut shreds
  7. 1 tsp. water


  • Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Mix and mash everything in a mixing bowl.
  • Lightly oil a bread pan.
  • Pour mixture into bread pan
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes.

This is what ulu looks like:

    I’ve always wondered what breadfruit was like. In fact, the picture looked totally unfamiliar so maybe I’ve never even seen one! I really want to visit Hawaii some day, and I’ll definitely look for breadfruit while I’m there.

    Dear Aimee- U bring back memories – the last time had breadfruit was a decade ago in Singapore!

    This is so wonderful with no addition of flour. I am truly impressed with the beautiful healthy ingredients 🙂

    Always a pleasure!

    I tried breadfruit for the first time last week, baked in chip form, and it was so good! It makes me want a breadfruit tree, which is probably the only way I can eat it in future because no one in town seems to sell it!
