Baked Ribbon Plantain Chips

Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time25 mins
Total Time30 mins

Ingredients

  • 2 green plantains
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil or melted coconut oil
  • Sea salt
  • Chili powder (or any spices to your liking)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Slice off both ends of the plantains and score the skin lengthwise, being careful not to cut through the flesh. Peel off the skin and discard.
  • Using a vegetable peeler (recommended) or a sharp knife, slice the plantains lengthwise as thin as possible so they form long, flat ribbons.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Gently brush both sides of the plantain ribbons with avocado oil. You can also use a spray bottle to spray the oil onto the ribbons because they are very thin and delicate.
  • Sprinkle with sea salt and chili powder (if using).
  • Lay the ribbons down on the parchment paper into various random folds and bends.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes until the ribbons crisp up and start to brown.
  • Serve immediately.

Notes

These chips tend lose their crunch and get a bit mushy if you store them for later. If they do, broil them for 1-2 minutes until they crisp up again, being careful not to burn them.
