Tips

This is one of my favorite desserts to make. It is simple and quick. These also cook well in mini muffin tins. Baking with protein is tricky so be sure to keep an eye on the batter. It should be pancake like and not too dry. This will depend a lot on the ripeness of the plantains so add the protein last and only a bit at a time as to not dry out the batter.  If batter gets too dry add a little applesauce.

Ready in 20-25 minutes
