Plantain Chips



1 plantain unripe (green)* at room temperature

1 tbsp coconut oil

1 pinch salt


Pre-heat oven to 180 deg C.

Peel plantain and slice into 3mm slices (a mandolin works best for this). 

Place sliced plantains into a large bowl.

Melt coconut oil and pour into bowl and mix through until all slices are lightly coated.

Place coated plantains in a single layer on a baking tray lined with silicone or baking paper.

Bake in pre-heated oven until golden and crispy, approximately 20-25 minutes.

When cooked put into bowl and toss with salt (best done while still hot as any oil will help it stick).

When cooled store in an airtight jar.

*Plantains look like large bananas and are available in Asian supermarkets.  They are a source of resistant starch to add to your diet.  These chips are a perfect grain-free, gluten-free cracker to enjoy with dips or just eat them as they are.
