I LOVE PLANTAINS! I don’t say it enough and I don’t eat them enough. But when I am in Mexico, I AM a plantain. Ever since I purchased an air fryer, I am having a BLAST fryer all of my faves. And then it dawned on me… why purchase plantain chips when I can make my own?! And ensure they are healthy and delicious! This recipe is my new addiction. You’ve been warned…
What You Will Need:
1 medium sized plantain
1 tbsp coconut oil
dash of pink himalayan salt
avocado & vegan Chocolate to garnish
What You Will Do:
Preheat your airfryer to 390 degrees F
Cut off both ends of the plantain and take off the peel.
Cut the plantain into thin slivers with either a knife or a slicer. (I used a knife, but a slicer might be easier!)
Put the sliced plantains into a bowl and pour the melted coconut oil on top.
Put the plantains into the airfryer and top them with pink himalayan salt.
After the plantains have been cooking for 5 minutes, open up the fryer and toss them.
Close lip and cook for another 5 minutes or until the chips are at your desired level of crispiness.
For Sweet Plantains!
Sprinkle the plantains with cinnamon and a little more salt!
Melt your favorite chocolate and use as a dip! (You won’t regret this!)
For Savory Plantains!
Sprinkle a little more salt on the plantains.
Serve them with your favorite salsa or avocado!
