Salt and Pepper Plantain Chips

Another satisfying snack that you can feel good about because YOU control how much oil and salt goes into this wholesome treat. I dunno about you but chips are my favorite junk food, second only to ice cream. Why buy a processed version of something you can make at home in less than half an hour? Plantains are the quiet big sister to bananas with less sugar, more fiber, more vitamins C, A, B6, potassium, iron, magnesium, and phosphorous! What junk food?

All you need is:
(LOVE)
2 small green plantains
Coconut oil spray
Sea salt
Pepper

Slice peeled plantains into thin slivers, trying to keep than all similarly sized for even cooking. Spray your cookie sheet with coconut oil. Lay plantains on sheet and spray once again. Then sprinkle sea salt and pepper to taste.
Bake at 350 in preheated over for 20-25min until crispy but not yet brown. If your slices are not even, you may want to remove thinner chips first, and let the rest continue baking another 5 minutes. Then remove chips that are starting to brown from cookie sheet immediately, leaving the other chips to cool on the pan. They will continue to crisp up slightly as they cool.

Wait until chips are completely cool before sealing in airtight container to snack on all week.

That is it! Healthy chips, made at home, all natural 🙂

Garlic Dino Kale Chips

Wash and de-vein 1/2 large bunch dinosaur kale. Tear into desired chip sized pieces. Lightly spray cookie sheet with oil spray of choice, place in a single layer, lightly spray again over the top of the kale, then sprinkle on desired seasonings. I simply used garlic powder. Then bake at 325 F for 15min! Enjoy and store in a sealed container and ziplock. Easy peasy good for you!
