Health Highlights


1 plantain(s) Plantain, green, raw (green)
1/2 tsp Paprika
1/2 tsp Cumin
1/2 tsp, ground Thyme, dried
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
1/4 tsp Black pepper
1/4 tsp Cayenne pepper
2 tbsp Coconut oil


1. Preheat the oven to 450°F with a rack in the center of the oven.

2. Mix all the spices together in a bowl. Peel the plantains with a knife.

3. Slice the plantain into thin slices (about 2mm thick). Place the plantain slices in a mixing bowl.

4. Pour the coconut oil into the bowl and all but ½ tsp. of the spice mix. You’ll use the remaining ½ tsp. once they are cooked.

5. Mix the slices together with the oil and spices until they are coated. Lay the slices out flat onto a baking sheet making sure none are stuck together.

6. Place in the oven and bake for about 7 minutes. Remove the sheet from the oven and flip the chips over one at a time.

7. Place back in the oven and bake for mother 3-5 minutes being sure not to burn the chips.

8. Remove from the oven. Transfer to a bowl and add the rest of the spice mix. Mix well and enjoy. Better than potato chips!
