Baked Plantain Chips


After trying Microwave potato chips, I always wanted to try some baked chips. I felt like having Banana chips, and instead of deep frying, baked it 🙂  Crispy and healthy snack. I prepared it in two batches, one with just salt and one with salt and chilli powder.

Baked Plantain Chips

Preparation Time : 5 mins | Cooking Time :  15 – 20 mins | Serves : 2

Recipe Category: Snack


Plantain – 1, peeled and thinly sliced

Chili powder – 1/8 tsp (Adjust according to your spice level)

Salt – as needed

Olive oil – 1 tbsp

Cooking Spray (I used PAM olive oil spray)



  • Preheat oven to 400 degree Fahrenheit
  • In a bowl, combine plantain, olive oil, chilli powder and salt
  • Take a baking tray and place parchment paper. Grease with a cooking spray and spread the plantains
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, turning the plantain slices after about 8 minutes

    The deep fried aspect of cooking always puts me off not that they dont taste good, they taste too good, but its just a lot of work by the end of which you dont want to eat it anyway. Baked chips sounds wonderful!

    This looks fun! I recently went to a small Health Fair and someone brought baked plantain chips with a Trader Joe’s Spicy Bean Dip and from then on, I discovered more of a liking for plantain chips! Perfect timing for the recipe!

    as kids we used scramble and quarrel over these. Mom used to get a few packs through our Malayali neighbor, once a year. And it used to be over in a few days 🙂 I make these in oven, never tried the microwave. Now i will follow your recipe oneday, to make the microwave version 🙂
    Healthy post , Vidya 🙂
