Just dropping in for a quick recipe I featured on my last post….the plantain chips I made for my bachelorette party.
I wanted to have some carbs since we were going a wine tour…because whenever I have alcohol in me I seem to be craving carbs and what I eat usually doesn’t make me feel he greatest the next day! I knew I would hate myself for eating a bagel….
My go-to healthy carbs tend to include sweet potatoes, bananas…which got me to plantains! The are so yummy! I’d describe them as a cross between a banana and a potato. They are really carb and calorie heavy they are perfect if you are looking for a good amount of calories for working out, gaining weight, or in my case to soak up wine from my wine tour LOL
First(after preheating oven to 425), I sliced up two plantains very thin (not see through but think banana chips) You can use as many as you want…this yielded about two cups of plantain chips.
I melted about 3 tablespoons of coconut oil in a large bowl.
I gently tossed the raw plantains with the coconut oil so they were coated. I sprinkled about 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and a dash of salt and tossed them again until coated.
I placed them on a baking sheet making sure none of them overlap.
Bake for roughly 20-25 mins, flip them over, then bake another 20-25 mins.
They turn out a nice golden brown and smell delicious! Maybe I will throw up some more pictures because I plan to make them for the bridal suite for my wedding day (another time when I need to shove my face with healthy carbs!!)
what are your favorite healthy carbs?
