We are using plantains, which are referred to as cooking bananas, as our chip. All you need is green plantains, oil, and salt to make the most perfect crispy chip.
Chips are a household staple – from kids to grown-ups, everyone loves them. They make a quick and convenient snack, side dish, addition to a meal, and more. But making them at home is can be just as easy and as snagging a bag from the store. The key to this recipe is makings sure your plantains are green and you slice them thin enough to get them crispy. Happy dipping!
How to Make Plantain Chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
Thinly slice plantains. We used a mandolin on the smallest setting. Add to a bowl and toss with avocado oil.
Grease parchment paper with avocado oil to ensure the chips don't stick. Place plantain slices on parchment paper in a single layer, spacing them about 1/2-1 inch apart.
Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown and crispy. We found 18 minutes was the sweet spot. Remove from oven and sprinkle with sea salt.
