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 are great to bake in the oven as well.

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.

The Cilantro Lemon Sunflower Seed Dip is also gluten-free and nut-free; it’s the perfect addition!

These oven-baked Plantain Chips are super easy to make. Peel, slice, coat, and bake. Easy as that. I’ve used a ripe plantain for this recipe, this means the skin is not entirely black but got some brown & black spots already. You can get plantains in Asia markets or maybe even in Asian aisles in supermarkets. They are larger than regular bananas and starchier – which makes them perfect for chips.

Thank you, Kristy! Yeay, another one who likes plantain chips <3 I haven't met too many who actually tried & liked plantain chips, but I can't get enough of them. The cilantro dip and the plantain chips are a match made in heaven :D

Another dipping vehicle! And it's homemade! And from only 3 ingredients! These look so crispy and good. I've eyed the plantain chips from the store before, always curious but not really wanting a fried snack. But duh make them at home! I can't get over those brown crispy edges <3

I'll gladly sacrifice myself to try all the fried snacks and create oven-baked alternatives for them :D Hahaha, the plantain chips are so good, now I'm always buying a few plantains and I want to try a few other methods with them, e.g. caramelizing them in the pan :D Whenever I'm in Asia markets, it's hard for me not to buy everything - because everything looks so interesting.
