Let’s talk a little about obsessions. Food obsessions to be specific.

I have an obsession with maple syrup. Not to be confused with my obsession with curry. Or my obsession with avocados, shrimp or dark chocolate. Ok, so maybe I just have an obsession with food. I mean, that’s not completely a bad thing, right?

Now, you wouldn’t really know this from current recipes, and that’s probably because this is kind-of-sort-of a newer obsession discovery of mine. That brings us to these lovely Maple Cinnamon Plantains right here.

Yep, dessert of champions and a total obsession. Because you know, sometimes you just don’t feel like that huge piece of chocolate cake after dinner (wait, could that ever be true??) yet you still have that sweet tooth craving that won’t go away? This dessert is your perfect alternative.

Only 4 ingredients and just takes a little more than 4 minutes of your time. Fry up those plantains in a little bit of butter and then top with frozen yogurt, cinnamon and maple syrup. And, if you don’t have any frozen yogurt on hand, try it without. You would never believe how well plantains, cinnamon and maple syrup go together. Totally drooling right now. 😍

Speaking of drooling…remember my maple pecan granola back from a while ago? Well, let’s just say that I pretty much have this on hand AT. ALL. TIMES. You guessed it, another obsession.

I mean, can you argue with my other obsessions?
