Baked Cinnamon Banana chips

So needless to say I got tired of staring at the super overripe bananas sitting on my table..

We’ve made Banana bread and muffins, even banana pancakes! So I was running out of ideas fast!

I did a quick search online, and found out you can make your own banana chips, without a dehydrator! So I started my own little home experiment and gave it a try!

Happy to report they turned out great and they kids loved them!

If you have more bananas than you know what to do with, give these a try!

  • 2 large bananas
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 4 Tbsp water
  • Kosher salt
  • Cinnamon

Pre heat your oven to 250

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  1. Slice your bananas into about 1/8 inch slices.
  2. Place them on your lined baking sheet.
  3. Mix together your water and lemon juice in a small bowl. Brush each banana slice with the mixture. Then sprinkle each slice lightly with your salt.
  4. Bake for one hour, then flip each slice. Brush each side with your mixture and sprinkle with salt as you did before.
  5. Place back in oven, and bake for an additional hour.
  6. Remove from oven, and lightly dust with cinnamon. (According to taste)
  7. Allow your slices to cool completely, before serving. This will make them crisp up a little more.
