  • Cut the ends off the plantain, and score the length of the skin lightly so you don't pierce through the flesh.
  • Peel the plantain and cut it into 1/4 - 1/2 inch thick slices.
  • Pour coconut flakes into a bowl, and coat both sides of the plantain slices by pressing them into the coconut.
  • Heat coconut oil in a skillet over medium high heat.
  • Once the oil is heated, fry the coated plantain slices in the skillet in a single layer. Flatten them down slightly with a spatula and cook them for 1 minute on each side.
  • Sprinkle with more coconut flakes and serve immediately.
