Plantain Tortilla Chips Recipe photo
Plantain Tortilla Chips Recipe
photo by recipe author
  • 3 unripe (green) plantains, peeled*
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspon salt
  • coarse salt to sprinkle

1. Peel and slice the plantains into about 1/4 inch slices and lay flat on a cookie sheet for about an hour (this can be skipped if plantains don't seem very moist, wet on the fresh slice side).

2. Add the plantains and oil to a food processor and combine until smooth.

3. Once all the lumps are gone, add the sea salt and quickly combine.

4. Place the mixture on a sheet of parchment paper the size of your cookie sheet.

5. If the dough is dry enough, place another piece of parchment over the top and with a rolling pin, roll out to about 1/8 inch thick rectangle. If the dough seems too wet, spread out evenly with a spatula (I have had dry and I have had wet plantains, not sure what contributes to that).

6. Using a sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut into the shape and size of chip you prefer.

7. Sprinkle coarse sea salt or regular sea salt over the top of the dough and slide the paper onto a cookie sheet.

8. Bake at 400 for 25-30 minutes until golden brown. You may need to remove some chips as you go that brown faster than the others. Make sure to cook them long enough or they will be chewy instead of crunchy.

9. Remove cookie sheet and let chips cool. You may need to re-cut the chips or you can break them along the cut lines. Store in an airtight container, glass is my favorite.

Quick Notes:

*The easiest way to peel a plantain is to first cut off the ends. Then with a knife, slice along the pronounced ridges (about 3 of them). Don't worry if you cut into the plantain, it won't matter. Peel one section at a time, it should come off pretty easily.

Can anyone tell me the difference between using green plantains and more ripe ones?

I could only find ones with brown spots. I had a hard time getting the chips to come out crispy.

i tried the recipe with a ripe plantain and it didn't work. Today I tried with green plantain. It works :)

Green plantains are a dry resistant starch fruit, while the ripe plantain is a moist, sugary fruit.
