Healthy Sweet Plantains

1 Comment

plantainsWhile visiting a Cuban restaurant recently enjoyed fresh fried plantains.  But, knowing the recipe most likely called for butter and white sugar, I adapted the below recipe to be healthier and free of all common allergens.


2 firm plantains – More green than black skins


1/4 C Raw Coconut Sugar or Sucanat

Dash of cinnamon


Peel the plantains and slice at an angle so you have larger circular slices.  Heat a flat bottom skillet on the stove and place in enough ghee to coat the bottom of the pan.  In a separate bowl, put in the sugar and a dash of cinnamon.  When the ghee is hot put in the plantain slices and fry until golden brown.

Transfer the plantains into the bowl with the sugar and toss to coat the plantains.  Set aside to caramelize for a few moments.  Serve and enjoy immediately.

  1. Why not just let them get really ripe and not add any of the ghee, sugar, etc. If you want less fat, you can put them in the oven. They are very sweet naturally.
