Plantain Chips Recipe

    16 Servings


  • 2 Plantains, Green or just yellow
  • 2-3 tablespoons Melted Coconut Oil
  • Cinnamon Sugar, Optional


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone mats.
  2. Peel the plantains and slice them as thinly and evenly as possible, using a mandoline if you have one.
  3. Brush the parchment paper or silicone mats with melted coconut oil and spread the plantain slices out in a single layer.
  4. Brush the tops of the slices with the remaining coconut oil and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar if you like.
  5. Bake the plantain slices, one sheet at a time for 10 minutes then flip the slices over.
  6. Bake on the second side for another 10 minutes, checking after 5 minutes to make sure they aren’t getting overdone. Depending on the thickness of your slices you may need a little less time on the second side, or a little more; just keep an eye on them and bake until they are browned and crispy.
  7. Allow to cool completely.
