Homemade Plantain Chips

Does anybody else love being snowed in as much as I do? A good excuse to dive into a book, organizing the house, watch a movie AND play in the kitchen! When else do you have a whole day to do all of these things?  Savor it!

Speaking of playing in the kitchen, here is another favorite recipe of mine.  Homemade plantain chips.  Do you have a weakness for salty things like potato chips?  This is a great healthy alternative and all you need are some bananas (or plantains which are basically the same thing), olive oil and salt.  If you don’t feel like making them, march yourself over to Trader Joe’s and buy a few bags!  Warning, they are addicting…especially when you dip them in hummus or TJ’s cilantro yogurt dip. YUM.

Here is the recipe, enjoy!



Plantain Chips

Slice up 4-6 bananas/plantains- the thinner the better

Put all slices in a big bowl/container (one you can put a lid on preferably) and drizzle 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil-shake up container so olive oil gets on all of them.

Sprinkle salt a few times and shake again

Spread out on large baking pan- avoid any layers.  Use two pans if necessary

Cook at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes, depending on how crispy you want them
