Move over Bric, I have a new love!
And OhMyStinkinHeck are they ever good!
Such an easy and delicious snack or desert without a ton of calories. The problem is, we all love them. So I have to make a ton in order for everyone to get their fill…or only make them when no one else is at home so I can have them all to myself!
There are no right or wrong measurements here. Which is one of the reasons these are so easy to make.
Plantains look a lot like a banana. But they are much harder to peel, the skin is much thicker. To open the plantains, I cut off each end and then I run a slit down the side with my knife and open them that way. Whether it is correct or not, it is how I find it easiest.
Once I have the peeling off I slice them at a diagonal.
I melt about 2 tablespoons of coconut oil over medium heat in a large frying pan. You can use other oil, I just happen to like coconut oil for these. The key is to make sure not to have your oil too hot. I am always tempted to turn it up so they will cook faster, but slow and patient is the best. You also don’t want to crowd them in the pan, let them breathe. It also makes it much easier when the time comes to turn them over.
And use a light hand…otherwise they just mush up and fall apart. You want them to brown on each side, and I turn mine pretty often just to make sure they cook evenly.
Once they are browned to your liking, remove from the pan and allow to drain on a paper towel, then sprinkle with a little cinnamon powder.
And then drizzle with honey.
And they are now ready to eat!
