These may be my new favorite. snack! They’re perfect when you want a little something sweet and savory (which for me is most of the time haha). I’ve had a few moments while making plantains (i.e. forgot about them and completely burned the whole pan & just not really knowing what the best time to cook them was to get them the best. I particularly love pairing them with a bunch of homemade guacamole. It’s such a delicious combo!! I’ll also use them throughout the week to put on bowls, etc. Think Mexican night!! I hope you love them as much as I do!
Recipe note: Make sure you have a liner on your pan or have sprayed it with olive oil in order to prevent the plantains from sticking to the pan. And set a timer so you don’t forget to flip! They will burn easily.
- 4-5 plantains (I use the very spotty ones for this recipe—they are sweeter)
- 2-3 tbsp olive oil or avocado oil (make sure they are coated)
- Sea salt/pepper
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp chili powder
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
- Cut the plantains into coins. (Try to not make them too thin or too thick!) Coat in olive oil, sea salt & pepper, and chili powder. Spread out evenly on baking sheet.
- Bake for 12-15 minutes & then flip and bake for another 12-15 minutes. Keep an eye on them throughout!
- Mash avocado to use as dipping!
