Baked Plantain Chips

Baked Plantain Chips

3 medium size plantains or raw bananas, peeled/unpeeled
4 tablespoons coconut oil
salt/red chili powder/black pepper as per taste

Pre heat the oven at 425F/220C for 15 minutes. Line a big cookie sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper.

Meanwhile in a large bowl whisk together the oil, salt and seasonings. Stir in the sliced plantain and coat it well with the spice rub.

Spread the sliced pieces onto the baking sheet and bake for about 20-25 minutes, flipping it once in the middle.

The taste and texture of these baked plantain chips is exactly same as that of those fried in oil. Using coconut oil makes it even better.


The first time I made these, I cut the slices thicker, so it took around 30 minutes and it baked evenly. But this time I made it very thin, so it was getting burnt very soon. I think I should have reduced the oven temperature.
