Cinnamon Honey Plantain

I tossed these together for my husband today while the kids were napping. Verdict? Well, the plate was empty in less than 5 minutes and he was asking if there were more. Not an everyday, for me at least, but why not every now and then. There is honey, but to be honest, with my husband, he eats more than a Tbsp of honey straight out of the jar on a daily basis, and his body handles it well.
I tasted one of them and they honestly tasted like a piece of Monkey Bread... you know what I'm talking about, those bread dough balls dosed in butters, sugar and Cinnamon and all smashed together. Mmmm...

Cinnamon Honey Plantain
1 Plantain
1 Tbsp Honey
2 Tbsp Coconut Oil+ Enough to shallow fry plantain
1 Tbsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt

In a heavy bottom saute pan, heat coconut oil to medium-high heat. Slice Plantain into pieces.
 Fry pieces in heated coconut oil for 3-4 minutes per side, or until they are lightly browned.
While plantain are frying, mix remaining ingredients (honey, coconut oil, cinnamon, salt) in a medium bowl and heat in the microwave till they are melted and can easily combine.
 Toss fried plantain chips in heated sauce. 
Once evenly coated remove and serve.
