Equipment

  • Dehydrator

Ingredients

  • 6 Bananas cut into 1/8 inch slices

To make Sour Dehydrated Banana Chips

  • 1 Lemon juiced (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 1 pinch Salt

To make Cinnamon Dehydrated Banana Chips

  • 2 tablespoons Maple Sugar Omit for whole30, Coconut sugar is a good substitute
  • 2 tablespoons

    Coconut Oil

  • 2 teaspoons

    Ground Cinnamon

  • 1/8 teaspoon

    Salt

Instructions

  • To make either the Sour or Cinnamon Dehydrated Banana Chips, combine all the ingredients in a large bowl then toss to coat. To make the plain Dehydrated Banana Chips, skip to the next step.
  • Place the banana slices in a single layer on the dehydrator shelves.
  • Cook for 6-7 hours at 160 degrees or until crisp. The plain and sour banana chips will cook faster than the cinnamon.

Notes

  • Use just ripe bananas to make it easier to slice. They are also less likely to fall apart as you prepare them. However, ripe bananas will definitely be sweeter.
  • I’m using a Nesco dehydrator. This recipe fills up all the trays.
  • The Cinnamon Dehydrated Banana Chips will take longer to cook than the others. The coconut oil keeps them moist so the cooking time will be much closer to 7 hours. However, if you are inpatient, you can always take them out a little early and eat them semi soft. Some people actually prefer them slightly soft and chewy where they kinda taste like a soft baked banana bread cookie.
  • It’s a idea to store these in the fridge as they are preservative free which means they are going to go bad rather quickly. I’d eat them within 7 days, especially if they aren’t completely cooked through.
  • Don’t eat all of these by yourself in one sitting which is hard because it just doesn’t seem like a lot of food. But remember, this recipe called for 6 bananas. That’s a lot of sugar and you need to make sure you don’t eat more than your body can tolerate.
