I am eternally in love with plantains and I am so glad they are as delicious as a banana, but have less sugar. Cooking with plantains is easy because they have a good starch content, amazing flavor, and can easily be added to baked goods. Plantains are a relative of the banana and trust me, they have a striking resemblance in looks and flavor! Plantains are served as a main food group in many tropical countries. I vote we should make Plantains a main food group in America too. Plantains can be made into chips as in this tostones recipe, eaten with a bite of almond butter (or peanut butter), and also added to baked goods.

I will snack on a bag of plantain chips during car rides and eat plantains with almond butter every morning if you let me. My family will devour an entire bag of plantain chips as a snack and I don’t blame them, these are some tasty eats! Since I could never have enough plantains in my life, I absolutely had to make them into pancakes and kick off the morning with some serious deliciousness!
