New to cooking with plantains?
Great, an opportunity to expand your horizons and try a new food! Sweet Potato Plantain Waffles will turn out best when using a green-yellow plantain. A more ripe plantain will work but the texture will be a little different (more sticky) and the flavor a bit sweeter. This recipe was inspired by our friends, Lori and Michelle, The Purely Twins, fitness and lifestyle bloggers.
