  • 2 plantains, peeled and sliced paper thin
  • approx. 1/2 cup coconut oil (depends how big the saucepan is)
  • salt
  • cumin (or paprika)


  1. Place the coconut oil into a saucepan so that it’s approx. 1/4 inch thick (or use a deep fat fryer).
  2. Heat up the oil for 3-4 minutes on a medium heat.
  3. Drop in each thin slice of plantain one by one into the oil so they’re not overlapping.
  4. Use a perforated spoon to get the slices out as soon as they turn golden.
  5. Repeat until all the slices are fried
  6. Dust with salt and cumin (or paprika) to taste and mix well without breaking any of the chips!
