Preheat oven to 400℉. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, and salt.
Peel the plantains and slice them into 2 halves. Slice each half lengthwise. You should have 16 halves total.
Place the halves cut side up on the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle the sugar mixture on the tops of each half. Use your fingers to rub the mixture into the plantain halves. Spray the tops of the plantains lightly with the cooking spray.
Roast the plantains for 15 minutes or until the tops are golden brown and crisp.
Transfer the plantains to a platter and serve while hot!
Plantains taste delicious as a side with tacos, beans and rice, burritos, fajitas, quesadillas, or enchiladas!
