Golden Roasted Plantains


If you have a craving for sweets, try some of these GOLDEN ROASTED PLANTAINS! Marc and I had bought some green plantains a couple of weeks ago with intentions of making plantain chips. Well, change of plans.. the plantains were too ripe so we decided to roast them.


The result was yummy, soft, golden goodness and I couldn’t have just one! The good news is this recipe is healthy and nutritious.



  • 2 yellow ripe plantains
  • 1-2 tbsp canola oil
  • Sea salt


Preheat oven to 400 degrees and spray a baking sheet with baking spray.



Peel and Slice plantains into 1/4 inch thick slices. Coat the plantain slices with canola oil and place on the baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes and flip. Cook another 10-12 minutes or until golden and crispy on the top.



We tested out a new recipe last night for plantain chips. They came out pretty good but we need to perfect the recipe a bit. I am thinking a tad more oil! I will post that recipe soon :)
