Baked Banana Chips

Preparation Time: 
15 minutes
Cooking Time: 
120 minutes
Ingredients: 
  • Ripe bananas - not overripe
  • Lemon juice mixed with a bit of water so bananas don't brown
Equipment: 

Baking sheets

Instructions: 

Very little prep time, a few hours of baking time - worth it for the crispy results! Different recipes allow different times, so experiment with your oven for the best results.

  1. Slice bananas about 3-4 mm (about 1/8 inch) thin
  2. Arrange on a non-stick cookie sheet or on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper
  3. Brush slices with the lemon juice
  4. Bake in low oven, about 100-110 Celsius (about 200-225 F) for 1-2 hours, until dry
Serving Size: 
Equivalent of 1 banana
Serving Instructions: 

Let the chips cool after removing. They will still be flexible but will crisp up as they cool. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.
