I bought plantains for the first time and tried them in a savory dish as well as this one. I discovered that I am not a fan of the plantain but that is not due to any fault of this recipe. These...

Loved it! Followed recipe exactly as detailed. And ate the plantains like candy! yum!

Very good! My friend gave me a half box of plantains. I needed a different ways to fix them! Love this recipe but I also added shredded coconut on top while cooking. Yummy!

made sticks this time ...finished with powdered sugar

Very easy and very tasteful. I will make it again.

Made these last night for dessert. I sprinkled them with powdered sugar instead of regular sugar. So delicious!!!

This is so delicious! I drizzled some honey over mine and dipped them in peanut butter. Soooo good!
