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.

    Splendid recipe! I made this for dinner tonight, and now I’m plotting ways to work them into the Thanksgiving and Christmas menu. They may be just the thing to replace my annual yam dish. Thank you for posting it.
