Ingredients

    2 green plantains
    2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
    2 ripe avocados
    ¼ cup LaFe lime juice
    Sea salt to taste

     

Directions

  • STEP ONE
    Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line two large pans
    with parchment paper and set aside.

  • STEP TWO
    Cut off the ends of each plantain. Cut a thin
    vertical slit down each plantain, being careful not to
    cut too far into the flesh. Peel away the thick outer
    layer and discard. Cut each plantain into very thin
    slices, as uniformly as possible (or cut lengthwise
    using a mandolin).

  • STEP THREE
    Toss the plantain slices in the melted coconut oil.
    Place the slices in a single layer on the baking pans
    and top with sea salt.

  • STEP FOUR
    Bake the plantain slices for 15-20 minutes, switching
    the pans about half way through. The chips are done
    when the edges begin to brown. Keep an eye on
    them toward the end and remove any of the thinner
    slices first, as they will brown up quickly and can burn
    before the other chips are finished cooking.

  • STEP FIVE
    While the chips are baking, cut the avocados in half
    and discard the pit. Squeeze or scoop the flesh into
    a bowl. Mash with a fork. Squeeze the lime juice into
    the bowl and add sea salt to taste. Mix well.

  • STEP SIX
    The chips are delicious right out of the oven, but
    they’ll need to cool a few minutes before tiny fingers
    can handle them. Let them cool on a paper towel
    lined plate and then dig in!
