I made these in a fit of needing something sweet during a week of no refined/added sugar. These are so simple they almost don't need a post, but they were so good I couldn't leave them out.
-1 tbsp coconut oil
-Optional: melted coconut butter for topping (as pictured)
*I got mine at our local Asian market! Some normal grocery stores will have them as well. You want the skin to be basically black - the inside will not be like a banana when this happens! A simple banana can also be used for this recipe, if you're in a pinch.
1. Take the peel off the plantain and slice it in half long ways. Cut into chunks, any size you'd like.
2. Heat a pan (I used by cast iron) to medium/high heat and melt the coconut oil
3. Carefully place the plantains flat face down onto the hot pan with the oil. Allow to sizzle for about 3 minutes or so, until they start to brown up! Flip them with a spatula and sizzle for another 1-2 minutes
4. Remove from the heat and drizzle with melted coconut butter for a little extra deliciousness, but they are just as good as is!
