Baked Plantains

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
  • ½ tsp chili powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. 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.
  3. Bake for 12-15 minutes & then flip and bake for another 12-15 minutes. Keep an eye on them throughout!
  4. Mash avocado to use as dipping!
