Sea Salt Plantain Chips:

Smokey Plantain Chips:


  1. Preheat the oven to 375° F.
  2. Using a sharp knife, cut the ends of the plantains and score the length of the plantain skin. Score the skin lightly, without cutting into the plantain, this will help to remove it.
  3. Once scored, peel back the green skin, much like you would with a banana, to remove all of the peel.
  4. Thinly slice the plantains into rounds, keeping the slices as consistent as possible. The thinner they are the crispier they will cook.
  5. Separate the slices evenly into two bowls.
  6. For the simple sea salt flavour, toss the plantains in the melted coconut oil and sea salt.
  7. For the smokey version, toss the plantains in the melted coconut oil, sea salt and paprika.
  8. On a baking sheet, lay out the plantains evenly. If needed, season with more sea salt now.
  9. Bake plantains in the oven for 18- 20 minutes, keeping a watchful eye to ensure they do not burn. (The time may vary depending on oven, so you may need to leave them slightly longer.)
  10. The plantains should be well toasted but not overly brown or burnt.
  11. You can serve these immediately warm, or allow them to cool and store them in an air-tight container.
  12. They can be stored for 2-3 days, but any longer will start to lose their crispness.
  13. Enjoy!
