Claire Ragozzino‘s Plantain Brownies are gluten-free, nut-free, dairy-free, a refined sugar-free!. Plus, they’re under 10 ingredients! It’s also a recipe that’s versatile in texture and flavor possibilities. If you like fudgy, dense brownies, then increase the oil to 1/3 cup. If you like them fluffy, then use less oil. The majority of the sweetness comes from the ripe plantains, but the maple rounds it out with a touch of smoky richness. You can also play around with adding mint instead of cinnamon or a swirl of nut butter, the base is pretty solid and can be tweaked for different flavor cravings as your heart desires.
