We may have once or twice consumed a bag of banana chips in less than ten minutes. We’ve been wanting to make our own banana chips for a while because of this, so it’s fortunate that the Asian store keeps carrying green plantains that we haven’t really ventured to test yet. We eventually had crispy, sweet banana chips, which we may have also consumed in less than 10 minutes.
- 2 ripe plantains
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Salt (to taste)
- Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
- Peel the plantains and slice them thinly. You can use a knife or a mandoline slicer for even slices.
- In a bowl, toss the plantain slices with olive oil, making sure they are evenly coated.
- Arrange the plantain slices in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Sprinkle salt over the plantain slices according to your taste.
- Bake in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes or until the chips become golden and crispy.
- Remove from the oven and let them cool before serving.
