Baked Plantain Chips

You will want to make sure you are using ripe plantains. Just like a banana a plantain is ripe when it starts to brown. Their peel is not bright yellow like a banana, it is more of a greenish brown color that eventually turns darker brown and spots like a banana. If you try to remove the skin of the plantain and it doesn’t come off easily or the plantain feels hard it is not ripe enough. Let them ripen on the counter or in a paper bag to speed up the process.

Baked Plantain Chips

Slice them into small “chips” about 1/8″ thick. Add to a gallon-sized plastic bag with melted coconut oil and salt – Shake it up to coat! Spread them in an even layer on the baking sheet. Bake for 35-40 minutes flipping them once half way through. The plantains should be lightly browned on both sides. They taste best when served right away, they can get a bit dry tasting once they have sat out a while.

Baked Plantain Chips

For the dip, you can make it as spicy as you like! The recipe calls for a “pinch” of cayenne, but if you are into spice you can add a bigger pinch ๐Ÿ™‚ The plantains are naturally sweet, so they pair well with a spicy dip!

Baked Plantain Chips

If you are having trouble finding plantains at your grocery store look near the bananas. Most stores usually have them, but since they are a lot less popular than bananas in the US the display is much smaller and sometimes they are hidden.
