Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Pinch salt
  • 3 green plantains, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
Directions
  • Add the coconut oil to a large skillet. Add enough vegetable oil to come about a third of the way up the sides of the skillet and heat over medium-high heat until very hot.

  • Line a baking sheet with paper towels. Mix together the brown sugar, paprika, cayenne and salt in a small bowl and set aside.

  • Add the plantain slices to the oil in batches and fry until golden brown on the outside, about 5 minutes. Remove from the oil and smash to a chip size with a wooden mallet or rolling pin. Return the plantains to the oil in small batches again so they do not stick together and cook for another 3 minutes. Transfer the chips to the towel-lined baking sheet and top with the seasoning mixture.
