PALEO Treat-Plantain Chips

Plantains look a lot like giant bananas but they’re not as sweet. They’re  still high in carbohydrates so these should be eaten as a “treat” and in moderation.  There’s approximately  30g of carbohydrates per 100g which is less than a regular banana.

Plantain -very ripe


2-3 Raw plantains (very ripe are best)

1 tbsp of tumeric or mexican spices

Sea salt to taste

5 tbsp of coconut oil (for frying)


Peel the skin off of the plantain and slice in thin rings.  Sprinkle with tumeric or mexican spices and salt.  Heat oil in a large frying pan (med-hi) until oil is hot (coconut oil heats up quickly) then turn down the heat (med).  Fry the plantain chips in batches.  Turn the plantain chips a few times so that both sides cook evenly.  Using a perforated spatula drain the chips and place them on a cookie rack or paper towel to drain the excess oil off.

A little over cooked. Second batch was much better

*Chips stay crispy if left out in a bowl.
