Cinnamon Plantains



3 ripe plantains (yellow-black)

¼ - ½ cup Coconut oil

Cinnamon to taste


Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes


HERE is a printable version. 





  1. Put about ¼ cup coconut oil at the bottom of a medium sized pan and heat on medium to melt.

  2. While coconut oil is melting, slice the plantains. The easiest way is to cut off the ends, make a slit down the side of the plantain and then peel it off. It is best to use ripe plantains that are yellow with some black spots.

  3. Cut plantains in diagonal slices about ¼ - ½ inch thick.

  4. Place cut plantains in the hot coconut oil. Once the plantains are golden brown halfway up from the bottom, flip the plantains.

  5. Cook until they are golden brown all the way around and place them in an airtight container with a paper towel to absorb the leftover oil. You have to watch plantains when cooking them, if left in the oil too long they will turn black quickly.

  6. Add coconut oil to the pan if needed to finish the rest of the plantains.

  7. Add cinnamon to the airtight container and shake to coat the plantains. If the plantains are not very ripe when before cooking, putting them in an airtight container while hot will allow them to soften more.
