Paleo Plantain Chips and Easy Guacamole

  • Author: Jaime Hartman
  • Total Time: 20 mins
  • Yield: 6-8 1x


These plantain chips have a satisfying crunch and make a great paleo-friendly chips and guac combination!


  • 2 green plantains
  • 46 tablespoons coconut oil
  • sea salt
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 avocado
  • juice of 1/2 lime


  1. Slice the plantains as thin as possible.
  2. Melt the coconut oil over medium heat in a large cast iron skillet.
  3. Add the sliced plantains in a single layer (you will need to fry in several batches) and watch very closely as they will burn easily.
  4. Use a large pancake turner to flip them after just 1-2 minutes and fry until crisp on both sides.
  5. Remove to drain on a paper towel lined plate and sprinkle with sea salt. Allow to cool.
  6. Meanwhile, make the guacamole. Smash the garlic with salt until it is a smooth paste (using a mortar and pestle makes this easy).
  7. Peel and pit the avocado, mash with the garlic. Add lime juice and mix thoroughly.
  8. Taste and add additional salt if needed.
  9. Serve immediately as the chips will lose their crispness if they sit for a long time.
