Loaded Baked Plantains

Ingredients

2 very ripe organic plantains (the blacker, the better!)
1 tsp. chia seeds
1/4 cup plant-based milk
Toppings:*
1 pinch of cinnamon
1 cup fruit of your choice, chopped
1/4 cup nuts (optional)
*Other toppings can include: Oil-free nut butter, cacao nibs, frozen berries, seeds or nuts.

Method

Slice the plantains open lengthwise and bake at 350°F for 15 minutes or until plantains are a bit melted.

Remove from the oven. If using nut butters, spread these on the plantain first, and add the chia/plant milk mixture last, with either of these methods:

Simple Method:

Bake the plantains alone, following instructions above. Remove from oven, plate them on 4 serving plates, and add toppings of your choice.

Loaded Method:

Bake the plantains with the toppings of your choice, taking care not to burn the nuts, if using.

Serve and enjoy!
