Baked Plantain Chips

Just dropping in for a quick recipe I featured on my last post….the plantain chips I made for my bachelorette party.


I wanted to have some carbs since we were going a wine tour…because whenever I have alcohol in me I seem to be craving carbs and what I eat usually doesn’t make me feel he greatest the next day! I knew I would hate myself for eating a bagel….

My go-to healthy carbs tend to include sweet potatoes, bananas…which got me to plantains! The are so yummy! I’d describe them as a cross between a banana and a potato. They are really carb and calorie heavy they are perfect if you are looking for a good amount of calories for working out, gaining weight, or in my case to soak up wine from my wine tour LOL

First(after preheating oven to 400), I sliced up two plantains very thin (not see through but think banana chips) You can use as many as you want…this yielded about two cups of plantain chips.

I melted about 3 tablespoons of coconut oil in a large bowl.

I gently tossed the raw plantains with the coconut oil so they were coated. I sprinkled about 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and a dash of salt and tossed them again until coated.

I placed them on a baking sheet making sure none of them overlap.

Bake for roughly 15-20 mins, flip them over, then bake another 10-15 mins.

They turn out a nice golden brown and smell delicious! Maybe I will throw up some more pictures because I plan to make them for the bridal suite for my wedding day (another time when I need to shove my face with healthy carbs!!)

what are your favorite healthy carbs?

    Yum! I’ve never tried baking them! I fried them in coconut oil once and they were okay. Hard to slice and cook evenly. Trader Joe’s carries some pretty good ones but I would much rather make them at home!

    Cooking at 425 for 20-25 minutes on first side and mine were totally toasted! Anybody else have this problem? The few that didn’t toast were yummy!
