How To Make Paleo Plantain Chips


How To Make Paleo Plantain Chips

Crispy plantain chips lightly dazzled with sea salt. Paleo and gluten free- these five minute plantain chips are made with only two ingredients, make them sweet or savory. They are a perfect healthy snack for on the go or at home!

Today I am going to demonstrate how to make plantain chips (yay!). I couldn’t be more excited. And for such a little thing, oh my. Ever had plantain chips? If not, it’s a must! I am so attached to these delicious chips. The earthly sweetness from the plantain mingling with a bit of sea salt… first of all it’s amazing. Second, it’s a healthy snack and it’s paleo. 

Plantains can be cooked at different stages of ripeness. The greener the plantain, the less sugar content. And the more ripe (yellow) the plantain, the sweeter it will be. Either way, they both taste amazing! For this recipe, the plantains can be either ripe or green. Taste preference is the only difference.

So, today Instagram introduced Insta Stories. And I couldn’t be happier, because I’m not a fan of snapchat. Really, did I just say that? Yes. Most of all, because I really just can’t keep up with another social media. Also, Instagram is my fave, so having all the fun in one place is my kind of thing.Anyone else excited about this? Today I shared a bit of the behind the scenes of what goes down during a photoshoot. I show my set up, lighting, and camera. My Insta story shows it all. Take a peek at MY INSTAGRAM

PLANTAIN CHIP CRAZE!

Back to food. Okay, so plantains are a huge hit in this house! I mean huge! Don’t leave a bag of plantain chips around… they will disappear:) Because of this, I may have been known to hide a bag or two under my bed from time to time. Desperate times call for desperate measures.

    Hi Kaylie, will the plantain chips last like regular chips? Meaning can I make them a week or two ahead in preparation for a car ride or something? Thanks!;)
