I love baking with plantains. They are the perfect ingredient for creating a grain-free, egg-free, and nut-free recipe because they form a cohesive dough that binds together and bakes into a dense, moist treat! If you use plantains before they ripen, they have a very mild taste; making it easy to highlight whatever flavor you are looking for.
My recipe for plantain brownies is made using just 4 ingredients: plantains, pitted dates, cocoa powder and protein powder. This recipe is low in sugar, but if you have a preference for sweeter desserts you can always add more dates, or any sweetener of your choice.
*Add more dates for a sweeter taste
These plantain brownies are the perfect treat if you are craving dessert but still want something healthy. You can eat the whole batch (like I did with my family) without the sugar crash you would get from a conventional brownie recipe 😉
