Well hold onto your seats purely fitters…Okay maybe it is not that big of news.
But we have found a new favorite way we like to enjoy our plantains now.
Yes plantain chips and plantain bread (plus plantain socca and pancakes) are still very popular in this household.
Wait to you see these babies.
How to make baked filled plantains!
Let us show you how.
All you need is a plantain. Peel it.
Leave it whole.
Heat up your oven to 375 degrees. Coat your plantain with about 1 teaspoon coconut oil or ghee or real butter. Bake for 30 minutes. Flip and bake for another 15-20 minutes.
Cut a little slice on top and peel away (making a generous hole in the plantain) and fill with favorite topping. Super simple, right?
Here are our favorite ways so far. Really the filling ideas are endless. Be creative and have fun!
Fill your baked plantain with coconut butter and top with cacao nibs (or chocolate chips). Perfection.
Next up — protein filled plantain. We made our perfect fit protein frosting to fill our baked plantain and topped with cacao nibs. How we make our protein frosting — just take a scoop of protein powder mixed with a little coconut oil and a little water which we add in slowly until we receive a nice smooth frosting like consistency. Perfection.
Next …. chocolate plantain! Yes please. Make any chocolate sauce of your liking (could even use melted bar chocolate) and drizzle over your baked plantain. We mixed raw cacao with coconut oil and topped with coconut flakes. Perfection.
Last but not least … avocado filled with sea salt baked plantain! Perfection!
