Banana Chips.

A while back, I shared my obsessive cucumber chip recipe with you and I received so much amazing feedback on it from you guys that I was inspired to further explore other fruits and vegetables that I could make into “chips”. I have to be honest though, I didn’t come up with this idea on my own. I actually saw them in my grocery store and bought them to test out “for research” purposes only (okay, maybe not only!)

I’ve been practicing making these for a little while and I think I have all the kinks worked out now which makes me excited to share with you, BAKED BANANA CHIPS. On a total side note for a second, can anyone out there really type the word BANANA without hearing Gwen Stefani in their head? B-A-NAN-A-S! It happen every time!

These little pieces of heaven are a great late night snack on their own or even mixed with granola for breakfast. I haven’t found a wrong way to eat these and I haven’t found a wrong time of day either – that is a win-win situation for me! I would be lying if I said I didn’t throw a handful on top of a bowl of ice cream one night also.

There are only 2 ingredients needed to make these… b-a-nan-a-s and lemon juice.  That’s it, that’s all! You are going to want to use ripe and firm bananas for these though – not bruised or mushy.

Here is what you will need:

10 ripe and firm bananas thinly sliced

Freshly squeezed lemon juice – 1 lemon should do the trick

Here is what you will need to do:

Preheat oven to 200F.

Cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and lightly grease with cooking spray.

Toss thinly sliced bananas in lemon juice.

Arrange bananas in a single layer on the cookie sheet.

Bake for 2 hours before flipping banana slices and continue to bake for 1.5 more hours or until you’ve reached your desired level of crisp.

Remove from the oven and transfer carefully to a wire rack. Allow them to cool completely before storing in a airtight container. The longer you allow them to cool, the crunchier they will get.

I am so curious to hear your feedback on these. Let me know if you have previously tried these or have made them yourselves. What else can I make chips from?
