How to Make It
1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
2 Lightly slice through the skin of each plantain, from top to bottom, and then peel them.
3 Cut each plantain into three equal parts and then cut lengthwise into 1/4-1/2 inch slices.
4 Place the plantain slices on a lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
5 Bake for 10-15 minutes, turn over plantains, and bake for an additional 5 minutes.
6 Serve warm.
1 Wash the plantains but do not peel them.
2 Cut each plantain (with its peel) into three equal parts.
3 Bring a large pot of water to a boil over medium high heat. Add the plantains and 1 tsp of salt to the boiling water.
