Plantain French Toast

Cinnamon Plantains

IMG_3293

This recipe is a great way to start the new year off right.  It’s low in sugar but just as satifying as a sugar filled french toast.  I love having this in place of tradional french toast for breakfast or brunch.  But, it’s also great as a snack or even a dessert.

Cheers to a healthier new year!

Ingredients:

1 ripe plantain (should have some brown spots on the outside)

coconut oil

cinnamon

pinch of salt

Directions:

Slice the plantain in half and then halve each half.

Heat a thin layer of coconut oil in a saute pan until rippling.

Add the 4 plantain slices (they should sizzle when they hit the pan).

Top the slices  with a light coating of cinnamon and a pinch of salt while they cook.

Let the slices brown on the bottom (1-2 minutes).

Flip the slices and brown the other side.  Another 1-2 minutes.  While it’s cooking add a sprinkle of cinnamon to the new top side.

When side 2 is browned, transfer to a plate and eat!  You won’t even need maple syrup.  (Although, you may want a scoop of ice cream if it’s dessert).

Happy and Healthy to you!
