Plantain Chips

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 1-3 1x


  • 1 plantain (2 plantains for 4 or more people)
  • 3 Tbs coconut oil
  • salt
  • paprika (optional)
  • cayenne pepper (optional)


  1. Peel the plantain and slice it very thinly.
  2. Heat the coconut oil in a fry pan.
  3. At this point, if you want to slightly dust your plantains with paprika and/or cayenne pepper, do that now.
  4. Add the plantains to the heated oil.
  5. Fry for about 1 1/2 minutes on each side (or until it reaches your preferred level of crispiness).
  6. Remove the plantains from the oil and onto a plate covered in paper towels.
  7. Salt immediately.


*These do not keep well overnight and they start to soften up after about an hour so be sure to serve and eat them immediately after you make them!
