Today we want to share with you, a couple of our favorite snacks. If you get anxious every once in a while and crave something crispy, hold on before you open a bag of potato chips; we have something way better!
Home made plantain and sweet potato chips! These are baked, delicious and so healthy to enjoy them as a side for lunch or an afternoon snack
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Using a sharp knife or mandolin, slice green plantain thinly (approximately 1/8 inch per slice).
Place the sliced plantains in a large bowl and drizzle with oil. Use your hands or a spatula to thoroughly coat the plantains in the oil.
Lay out the plantain slices in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with sea salt.
Bake for approximately 15 minutes, until golden brown at the edges.
Remove from the oven and cool completely to crisp up more.
SWEET POTATO CHIPS
Preheat oven to 250 degrees F and position oven rack in the center of the oven.
Rinse and dry your sweet potatoes thoroughly and slice them as uniformly thin as possible. If you have a mandolin, use it. Otherwise, use a very sharp knife to get these uniformly thin. Know that chips that are too thick in parts won't crisp up all the way. Toss slices in a touch of olive oil to lightly coat, then sprinkle with salt. Lay out in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for about 2 hours, flipping chips once halfway to ensure even cooking.
Remove once crisp and golden brown. Some may feel a little tender in the middle but take them out and let them rest for 10 minutes or so to crisp up before sampling.
We’re know these will become your favorite snacks too!
