Flourless Plantain Skillet Brownie


    • 1 ripe (yellow to yellow-brown) plantain
    • 3/4 c almond butter
    • 1/4 c Lakanto maple flavored syrup
    • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
    • 1/4 cup + 2 T cacao powder
    • 1/4 tsp baking soda
    • 1/4 tsp sea salt
    • 1 T approved oil



    Preheat oven to 350 F.


    Cut the ends off of the plantain. Slice the peel vertically down the plantain and remove the peel. Add the plantain, almond butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract, cacao powder, baking soda, and sea salt to a high-powered blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. The batter will be thick! If you don’t have a tamper for your blender, just stop the blender and scrape the sides periodically until everything is nice and smooth.


    Add melted approved oil to a 6-inch cast iron skillet (or loaf pan) and swirl it around to oil the bottom. Scoop the batter out of the blender and add to the skillet. Push the batter to the sides of the skillet and smooth the top as best you can. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
