Here comes your new favorite snack: These Baked Plantain Chips are easy to make, crunchy and so addictive! And you’ll only need three ingredients to make them.
I’ve got a new addiction – and it’s plantain chips! It all started with store-bought plantain chips and me wanting to create a healthier version – not fried in oil. Turns out, plantain chips easy to make and so, so good!
I usually buy plantains in Asia markets because they are much cheaper there. They are larger than regular bananas and starchier – which makes them perfect for chips. Plantains need to be cooked, so don’t eat them raw.
This recipe is a very basic one, with only a bit of added salt. I love the natural sweetness of the plantains mixed with the salt. These plantain chips are naturally vegan & gluten-free.
These oven-baked Plantain Chips are super easy to make. Peel, slice, coat, and bake. Easy as that.
I love to serve these plantain chips with my Cilantro Lemon Sunflower Seed Dip because the lemon and cilantro flavor just matches the plantain flavor perfectly.
How to make Oven-Baked Plantain Chips
As always you will find the whole recipe with measurements in the recipe box below but I want to give you an overview of the ingredients and the process with step-by-step photos first.
The ingredients & Variations
You will need:
- olive oil
You can also add chili flakes for spicy plantain chips or garlic powder.
The basic steps
I would recommend eating them fresh, on the same day. But if you make sure to bake them all the way through, let them cool off completely, and then store them in an air-tight jar at room temperature, they will be good for 1-2 days.
