Baked Plantain Chips

 

Ingredients

  • 2 to 3 Large Ripe Organic Plantains
  • Organic Olive Oil

 

Utensils & Appliances Needed

  • 1 or 2 Non-stick Baking Trays
  • Knife
  • Pastry Brush

 

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees*
  2. Wash plantains while they are in their skins.
  3. Remove skins and cut plantains to your desired size (the thinner they are, the faster they will bake).
  4. Lay plantains on the baking tray(s).
  5. Using the pastry brush, brush on olive oil over each plantain chip.
  6. Place in oven and bake for 30 to 35 minutes.
  7. Check after 15 minutes to see how plantains are doing.
  8. After they appear lightly golden, eat alone or serve with your favorite side and enjoy.

 

YIELDS:  It depends on how many plantains used (about 20 to 30 chips).

OTHER NOTES:  Plantains are related to bananas but are not bananas. They are usually bigger and their skins are a lot tougher, so be careful not to mix the two. The completed products can be refrigerated, stored and warmed for later consumption.

*Due to your oven’s specifications, you may need to adjust your baking settings.
