I started out making regular plantain chips, but the plantain I used was a little too ripe. What a fortunate mistake! I ended up thinking of this delicious twist on the salty snack.
1 plantain, preferably yellow
Coconut oil cooking spray (Trader Joe’s)
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Peel and thinly slice plantain. Place slices on a baking sheet lined aluminum foil and sprayed with coconut oil cooking spray.
2. Most the plantain slices with coconut oil spray and sprinkle with salt. Bake for 8 minutes, flip, and bake for 5-8 minutes more or until they are golden.
3. While still warm, place one chocolate chip on each plantain slice and smear a tiny bit of peanut butter to each one.
Oh.My.Goodness! These were an unexpectedly tasty treat. It’s hard to beat the flavor combination of chocolate, peanut butter, and salt on plantain!
