Fried Plantains with Caramel Sauce

What you need: 

1 large plantain, ripe (very black)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
substitute for 1 egg, like energ-y (though you will only use 1/2)
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
2 tablespoons maple sugar (available at health food
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 Tablespoon soy margarine
1 tablespoon soy creamer (I like silk, unflavored)

What you do: 

Prepare plantains: Mash the plantain. Add 1/2 egg, and cinnamon and mash together. Grease a skillet, and turn on med or med-hi. Spoon small spoonfuls of plantain mixture into skillet. Cook and turn when brown.
Prepare Sauce: Heat corn syrup, cinnamon, and maple vegan sugar into small pan. Heat over med, whisking until vegan sugar has dissolved. Add margarine and soy creamer and whisk until smooth. Reduce heat to medium and cook until sauce is reduced by half, and fairly thick. Spoon sauce over plantains and enjoy! This dish is very sweet and can be used as a breakfast or dessert!
