Baked Plantains

Quick and easy snack - I spotted them at the foodstore and had a sudden craving. We had some leftover guacamole in the fridge and ya know what tastes good with guac? Plantains. Yum. Super duper easy. You can either make these suckers with yellow or darker plantains - one thing to note, the darker the rind or peel, the sweeter the fruit is.

Baked Plantains
Makes enough for 2 people to snack

2 plantains - medium size
Salt (I prefer sea salt)
Cooking spray
Dipping sauce of choice

  • Preheat your oven to 325degrees
  • Peel the plantains and cut them into 1/2 inch pieces
  • On your cookie sheet, lay down a piece of parchment paper or cooking spray
  • Pop your plantains onto the sheet, and spray them lightly with cooking spray
  • Sprinkle the salt on top
  • Pop the tray into the oven for 10 minutes
  • After 10 minutes, grab the try out of the oven and grab a wooden spoon, cover the spoon with either a piece of parchment paper or spray is a little bit so the plantains don't stick.
  • Smash each plantain piece so it turns into more of a chip
  • Pop these back into the oven - 10 to 20 minutes depending on how crispy you like your chips
  • Let them cool and enjoy!
