baked plantain chips.

The other day I saw that plantains were on sale at the store, so I grabbed three of them.

The other day I also had zero idea what to do with those plantains.

So I did what my first response to just about any of life’s questions is…Google, of course. I found what seemed to be a really simple recipe for baked plantain chips, so I followed it for the most part.

Peel, slice, easy enough…

The only things I did differently from this recipe was a) I used just one plantain and b) I seasoned it with salt and cinnamon instead.

The result? Not bad…not bad at all!

I actually couldn’t believe that simply baking the slices for 15 minutes would result in a “chip,” but it really did! And it was the perfect afternoon snack.

Do you like plantains? Any other plantain recipes you suggest I try?

    I got plantain chips from Trader Joes and wasn’t a fan. I know my brother likes to make them in certain dishes, but otherwise I haven’t found an opportunity to try them!

    I lived in Honduras for about three months back in 2006 and worked at a restaurant. They would serve us a meal for any shift we worked and they would often have plantain chips as a starch substitute. I haven’t read the nutrition facts on them but I’d have to think they are healthier than potatoes and other starches. I’ve yet to make them since but you may have inspired me to look into it!

    I love plaintain! I also like to fry it on the stove. I was served it this way in the Dominican Republic and they gave us ketchup to put on top. Yummy!

    I’ve never attempted to make anything with plaintains before, but I know I’ve had them at a restaurant before and now I’m going to sit here wondering how they were prepared cause they were good.

    Hi there! Have you ever tried boiling them? My mom and I cut em up in 3 or 4 pieces depending on how big they are. Make sure they’re getting a little black (makes the result taste sweeter). And you just boil them with the skins on.

    They taste wonderful and are pretty damn healthy 🙂 hope you like it!!
