Basic Baked Plantain Chips

Better-for-you plantain chips that are crunchy and versatile. Your whole family will fall in love with them| Manna & Spice


  • 3 large green plantains, peeled and sliced as thin as possible (I used a mandolin)
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 3 tbsp avocado oil (or oil of your choice)
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease. (parchment paper works best)
  3. In a large bowl, toss the raw plantain slices with the salt, oil and chili powder until evenly coated.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and flip chips and return to oven and bake another 7-10 minutes, until crispy and lightly browned. Keep a close eye on the chips because they burn very quickly.
  5. Remove from oven and sprinkle with more kosher salt if desired. Let cool.
  6. Serve with gauc and salsa or your favorite dips.
