Plantains have a natural and subtle sweetness about them. When they are fried, they then also take on a crispy and savory flavor, making a perfect combination. These plantain chips are made with three simple ingredients: plantains, coconut oil for frying, and Himalayan salt. Easy, right? Easy and delicious. The next time you are looking for a good snack or some crunchy side, make these plantain chips!
“Jamaicans love snacks. And fried foods. Banana chips, plantain chips, cassava (yuca) chips, cheese chips and more… we eat them as snacks, we eat them with breakfast, we eat them as a side with dinner.
The processed stuff, though they taste good, are not very healthy. They are typically made with inferior oils that invite our body to have an inflammatory response. And processed salt that likely has additives, including sugar! They may also contain unlisted ingredients such as sulfites, which is a major trigger for many allergy and asthma sufferers. Making your own at home is equally delicious (I’d say they taste better, even!) and much healthier! Find simple directions below.”
