Recipe: Baked Plantain Chips

Hello! Hope you had a nice weekend, mine flew by as always!

I decided to bite the bullet and finally try to record a recipe video. I almost did about 4 months ago but gave up because my kitchen is quite small and I just couldn't get the right angles.

After a conversation with my friend on Saturday, I decided to start with a simple recipe and I think I got it right. What do you think?

Anyway, on to the video. I love plantain chips and I can easily finish 2 packs without taking a break. They're just so yummy, crunchy and moreish! It wasn't until after I baked them that I realised I probably eat 3-4 plantains when I inhale those 2 packs! 3-4 DEEP FRIED plantains! *sigh*

If you love plantain chips, you can still have them - just prepared in a healthier way. Yes, they are high in carbs but as a staple Nigerian food, you don't want to cut them out. Just prepare them in healthier ways and eat in moderation.

Cut out the random, nameless oil they're usually deep fried in and replace with a maximum of 2 tablespoons of coconut, olive or avocado oil.

Take a look at the easy recipe below and try it :)

Your feedback would really be appreciated, please 'like' the video (of course if you do like it!) and leave a comment. Also, I'd like to know what other recipe videos you'd like to see.

Have a nice week!

Love it Adura - especially the tips! I have never thought of using a spatula to spread the oil over the baking paper - I always make a mess instead! I've tried a version with cumin and I'm going to do a sweet one with cinnamon soon too -Plantain rocks!
