Step 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, with racks in upper and lower thirds. Divide plantains between two rimmed baking sheets. Toss with oil, then arrange in a single layer on sheets. Season with salt and pepper. Bake until golden and crisp, 30 to 35 minutes, rotating sheets and flipping plantains halfway through.

Drain plantains. Arrange plantain slices in a single layer on a baking sheet and season with salt and pepper to taste. Bake until golden crisp, about 20 minutes, flipping halfway through. Drain plantains on paper towels and serve with Pico de Galloor guacamole, if desired.

Once you’ve baked your plantain chips, they’re perfect for all kinds of dips, including my garlic aioli, dairy-free spinach artichoke dip, best ever guacamole. Stir in the sliced plantain and coat it well with the spice rub. Spread the sliced pieces onto the baking sheet and bake for about 20-25 minutes, flipping it once. Most recipes tell you to slice it on the diagonal, but I like the plantain chips round.

In a small bowl, toss the plantain slices with the olive oil and seasonings. Spread in a single layer on the prepared cookie sheet. Bake until browned and crispy on both sides, 8-10 minutes per side. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut the ends off the plantain, cut a thin line down the length of the plantain, being careful not to cut into the flesh. Then, using the knife and your hands, remove the skin from the flesh of the plantain *. Home-baked plantain chips are prepared with a minimal amount of oil.

You control the amount of salt used in baking it, and you know your ingredients. I prefer to make my plantain chips using the bake option (rather than frying), as this is the healthier of the two. Other Ways to Cook Plantains. Baked Plantain chips are done when they start to brown around the edges.

  • I’m making a variety of chips this weekend. I’m using coconut oil instead but I’m definitely not going to fry mine. I like the greener plantains for chips and the darkest plantains for banana bread. I’m like super excited now. We have lots to do this weekend in and out of the garden. Thanks for sharing.�� ��

  • Green plantains taste like a potato. Next time I will wait a week when I buy them to try it again. I want the chips to be sweet and not tasteless.

  • Great vegan snack. My favourite African snack too. Really had to catch up on your videos and I’m glad I have. Even tho now I’m hungry lol

  • Great healthy snack!! I will make these today! Thank you for sharing! New Friend, looking foward to more healthy dishes to help me on my weightloss journey.

  • It shocked me when you use unripe plantain �� since in here, unripe bananas are only used for savoury food. Or else, it wont be good at all. And usually it would be bitter and numb.

  • Oh wow that is amazing. I love to eat plantain chips but I never thought about making them on my own. Thanks for the recipe! Also I’ve never used that side of the grater. U taught me something new! 2 questions. What was that red and white thing in the bottom of the tray? What kind of oil is best to drizzle over the plantain before putting it in the oven?

  • Great video! Fantastic to see another black vegan from the UK, especially cooking WFPB �� makes me think I should start uploading on here again (I switched to Instagram as I found it easier to get the message out)!

    I know the struggle with those plantain chips sticking to the parchment paper; I usually let mine crisp up a little bit on the edges first, as I found they were easier to get a grip on and turn over:) keep up the positive work! Subscribed.

  • This video plantain recipe is awesome! I always grab a bag of plantain chips from the store already made. I am 100 percent sure that the homemade one is way better than the store brand. Besides baking them is also healthier than frying. I will definitely make it for my son, because he loves them. I really enjoyed the video. You made it so simple. Thank you.

  • Hi Elise,
    I’m so glad I found your channel!
    This video brought back memories to my mum making snacks at home when I was younger, she used to fry the chickpeas and season it with salt, bandanya (a type of herb like coriander) and peppery spices it was called fried channa. She would do the same with yellow split peas and also peanuts but leave out the bandanya. I also loved snacking on plantain chips when I lived in the Caribbean and I got into sweet potato chips when I came back to London. Finally I have learned how to make these things myself through your awesome video �� so no more spending a ton on tiny bags of these goodies… I love how they are cooked without oil and baked instead of fried, so it’s a guilt-free pleasure ��.
    Definitely a win!

  • OMG!! I’ve got to get a mandoline for all the cooking I’m planning to do. Gotta try these snack ideas. Seriously!! Also, what light are you using in the kitchen?

  • Nice video and recipe, please why do you put your plantains in water? This is the first time I am seeing that done, is there a particular reason for this? I am just curious to know.
