The green the plantain have the most health benefits as they have minimal impact on blood sugar and contain more of a certain type of carbohydrate which helps feed the good bacteria in our large intestine. They also give a better texture to the pancake.
The riper yellow plantain are sweeter, have a greater impact on your blood sugar and have a less firm texture.
1 green plantain
¼ tsp cinnamon (other spices can be used)
Blend one plantain (or 2 large bananas) with 2 eggs.
