TIME: 40 min

YIELD: 2 cups


6 medium sized ripe organic plaintains

2 tbsp grass fed butter or goat butter (or palm oil if you prefer)

sea salt

For a kick if you want to explore on your own: dash of cayanne, smoked paprika


1. Preheat oven to 350 deg.

2. Peel and slice plantains horizontally on an angle. Make slices thin, about 1/2 inch wide. I prefer to slice on an angle as the chip is more lengthened and less spherical for improved dipability (yes. It's a word.)

3. Melt butter on low heat, and when fully melted, pour over plaintains in a bowl.

4. Add salt and toss.

5. Spread plantains on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 30-35 minutes until crispy.

6. Remove from oven and let cool.

7. Gobble them up! But remember to share... A bit.
