2 medium plantains
2 tablespoons coconut oil
Salt to taste
WHERE HAVE THESE BEEN ALL MY LIFE. Probably right next to the regular chips that I normally have tunnel vision towards. Ok so these are Whole30 approved but certainly not in the quantity that I have been consuming them. M and I both love these but the sad news for him is that I am home way before him every day which gives me way too much alone time with snack cabinet and ultimately results in no chips for M. 😦 Sad. 3 thoughts for making these on my own.
- Snow day
- They are healthier
- If I have to work harder to obtain them, perhaps it will delay the speed in which I consume them.
After I made them I tasted 3 and then put the rest away for M. Selfless. They are really tasty and simple to make.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and thinly slice two medium plantains. In a bowl, toss the plantains with 2 tablespoons of melted coconut oil and sprinkle with salt to taste. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the plantains on the sheet. Bake for 17 minutes and you are good to go.
I also decided to make my own cashew butter. I love cashew butter with coconut oil but I have only been able to find it once. Making your own nut butter is healthier and in my opinion, tastes way better. Since I had the time I figured I should give it a go, especially since it goes really well with the plantain chips .
