I love snacks, and I love plantains! I can eat plantains all day long. Traditionally in the Garifuna culture plantains are eaten fried or boiled in a traditional dish called Machuca. However, since transitioning to a healthier lifestyle, I prefer mine baked!
Are you looking for a healthy recipe for plantains? This excellent meal prep friendly recipe will teach you how to make crunchy plantains without the extra fat.
Today I am very excited to combine my love for snacks and plantains and share a simple recipe that is both healthy and delicious!
For this recipe, you will need plantains (the amount varies, I suggest at least 2 or 3). Your favorite seasoning, here I am using one from Flavor God. You will also need a little bit of oil; my preference is coconut oil. If you love spicy food, I recommend crushed red peppers!
Before you start, turn on your oven at 350 degrees. Once you peel your plantains, cut them into 1/2 inch slices, then mix all your ingredients in a bowl. Place your chips on a baking sheet and put them in the over!
Baked Plantain Chips
- 3 Sweet/yellow plantains
- 2 tsps Crushed red peppers
- 2 tbsps Coconut oil
- 1/4 tsp Sea salt
- 1/2 tsp Seasonings
Pre-heat the over to 350 degrees
Cut your plantain vertically in pieces that are about 1/2 an inch wide and place them in a bowl
Add two teaspoons of coconut oil
Season to taste with your seasoning and crushed red peppers (I love spicy food, you do not have to use those).
Mix your ingredients in a bowl!
Place your plantains in the over and let them cook for 20 minutes, then turn them around and let them cook for another 10 – 15 minutes.
Note: If you like your plantain chips crispy leave them in the oven for longer, make sure they do not burn!
