Banana Chips Recipe 3 Ways

I once tried barbecue banana chips and it was a revelation of sorts. I’ve been looking all over for those packet of chips but never saw them again. When I stumbled on a plantain chips recipe online, I just knew I had to make my own version of savory banana chips. The dark chocolate was a trial of sorts and it didn’t disappoint. The toddler had one too many of the chocolate-coated chips. Enjoy!
