Additional Information:
7 Dec 2013 - We have many overripe bananas, and Daddy use them to make banana chips this morning. It tasted very sweet. There is no need to add any additional sugar. My Mr. FECS loves banana chips, so I am making them myself. It doesn't good so pretty, but it tastes really sweet and delicious.

I kept it simple, without using any lemon juice that many recipes call for. It turned out fine. Perhaps the banana chips has a darker color, but it doesn't affect the taste, and that is fine with me.

Updates:
18 Jan 2015 - Banana chips are my Mr. FECS favorite snack, but I really don't think that the store bought ones are healthy. It contains a lot of preservative, and from the texture, it contains trans oil. As part of our yearly framily tradition every January, I decide to make homemade banana chips. It is a good time to use the oven during winter time to make this snack :-) This time around, I thought of an idea to use the egg slicer to cut faster and to make each slice of banana more even :-) We had a cozy time together with my Little FECS making banana chips, and he had fun slicing the bananas with the egg slicer.

1. Cut banana into 5 smaller portions.

2. Slice each portion into thin slices with an egg slicer



3. Spread banana on a baking tray laid with baking paper.

4. Dry in the oven at 100 degree Celsius for 3-4 hours.
