Quick Snack Plantain Chips

In my quest to find some more healthy treats to snack on, I decided to make an old childhood favourite snack of mine plantain chips. A plantain is basically like a bigger version of a banana and can be be sweet or savoury depending on how ripe it is when it is cooked. For this recipe I chose a plantain that wasn't too ripe therefore a little bit savoury. It turned out well and the chips can also be stored in an airtight container in a cool dry place for later snack attack episodes!

 

INGREDIENTS

1 or 2 green plantains

2 tsps pink himalayan salt

1 1/2 Tbsps of melted coconut oil

 

METHOD

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees centigrade

Peel the plantain and slice into very thin rounds

Place the thin rounds onto a large baking sheet or tray

sprinkle the plantain with the pink salt followed by the melted coconut oil

bake int the oven until golden brown and crispy

remove from the oven and set aside to cool

enjoy snacking on your simple freshly made batch of plantain chips!
