Caramelized Cinnamon Plantains

caramelized cinnamon plantains

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but this is the first time I’ve cooked plantains. The only time I’ve eaten them was when Superman and I were in Honduras in 1997. So, I decided to give it a go. And YUM!

Recipe: Caramelized Cinnamon Plantains

2 plantains

3 TBSP coconut oil

3/4 tsp cinnamon

2-3 TBSP honey + more to drizzle

dash of salt

To remove the plantain peel, first cut the ends off, and then make shallow slices lengthwise (about 4 per plantain), then peel off segments:


Slice into about 1/4″ thick slices. Heat coconut oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add sliced plantains, cinnamon, dash of salt and 2-3 TBSP honey. Stir occasionally and cook about 6-8 minutes, until plantains have caramelized. Remove and drizzle with honey. Eat warm.
