Post-Workout Plantains With Maple Syrup


Ingredients for 6 servings:

  • 3 ripe plantains (or about 3 cups chopped)
  • 1/2 cup sugar-free maple syrup (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • pinch of sea salt (to taste)


Step 1

Cut the stems off a ripe plantain and peel it. Slice it into small pieces.

Step 2

Add coconut oil to a nonstick skillet and set it on low-medium heat. Once the skillet is hot, toss in the plantain pieces.

Step 3

Cover and cook for about 6 to 7 minutes on low-medium heat, careful not to let the plantains burn.

Step 4

Flip the plantains, then let them cook for another 3 minutes (covered or uncovered).

Step 5

Add sugar-free maple syrup (if desired), then sprinkle on some cinnamon. Mix the plantain pieces together using a spatula to ensure they are all evenly coated.

Step 6

Let the plantains slightly cool, then enjoy! Sprinkle a little sea salt on top for a little “sweet & salty” action.
