Green plantains in the air fryer result in potato-like crunchy, crispy chips without being full of calories and fat. These can be sweet or savory, depending on which you are craving - use salt for savory or cinnamon-sugar for sweet chips.

  • Cut both ends of plantain and score along the side through the skin only. Peel skin off and cut plantain in half. Peel into strips using a vegetable peeler.

  • Spray the air fryer basket with avocado oil. Place plantain strips in the basket, making sure they do not touch. Spray top of plantain strips with oil.

  • Cook in the preheated air fryer for 7 to 9 minutes. Use tongs to turn each strip over, and continue frying until crispy, an additional 3 to 5 minutes. Immediately sprinkle with salt.

Cook's Notes:

I have an air fryer oven, so I am able to see the air frying process. Keep a close watch on the chips, because they can easily burn.

For sweet plantain chips, toss immediately with cinnamon-sugar after frying.

Delicious! I used a Japanese Mandolin I purchased years ago. The recipe author is right. You really have to watch these. Most came out just right but some (in the same batch) came out a bit soft and some too crispy. I’m just beginning to use an air fryer and assume I’ll get better at this! Read More
