baked plantain chips

plantain chips are “not yo mama’s potato chips” 😉  although many people like to enjoy them fried, they are just as delicious when baked (and seriously, the baked version is soooooo good).  so here’s a very easy recipe for baked plantain chips that you can try and see for yourself!  let me know if you make them (tag #TheSugarApple in your photo 🙂  )

baked plantain chips



  1. preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. peel the plantains and then cut into thin slices or use a mandoline (a mandoline is perfect for making these into chips 😀)
  3. toss sliced plantains in 1-2 Tbsp of olive oil.
  4. arrange sliced plantains in a single layer on a baking sheet (lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil-sprayed with non-stick spray) and season liberally with your favorite seasoned salt (hint: Try Charlie’s you won’t be disappointed!) 
  5. place sliced plantains in heated oven and set for 15 minutes (important note: please watch these carefully, depending on how thin or thick your slice is – they may be ready a little sooner or may need more time.  so please keep your eye on them. they will become golden in color and crispy when ready – so in short, don’t leave the kitchen – we don’t want burnt chips. )
  6. enjoy! add more salt if needed. serve immediately.
