Caramelized Sweet Plantains

I was in search of the perfect plantain recipe & since I couldn’t find one, I made one up.

If you like plantains, you will love this healthy & delicious recipe made with organic brown sugar & coconut oil. I think it’s perfect over Greek yogurt, as a side to an entrée or, straight up as dessert.

Hope you try & enjoy it as much as this kid!

Start with ripe plantains, cut them on a bias & cover in brown sugar.

Plantains cut and covered in brown sugar

Sauté in coconut oil for approximately 5-10 minutes or until golden brown. Do not make the mistake I made & place them on a paper towel to cool off. They are tacky & will stick to the paper.

Instead, transfer them straight to the plate, wait a few minutes for the sugar to solidify & the plantains to cool off & dig in!

Caramelized and ready to be enjoyed!

I used Wegmans’ organic brown sugar & Trader Joe’s organic coconut oil but any brand will do.

Bon Appétit!
