Banana Chips


Makes 3 baking trays

Ingredients:

1. 1 bag of approx. 7 large bananas

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 100 degree celsius (225 F)
2. While the oven is heating up, slice banana thinly with a knife or using an egg slicer.
3. Spread banana on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
4. Place them in the oven and dry for 2-2.5 hours (If the the temperature hasn't reach 100 degree celsius, then dry in the oven for 2 hours.)
5. Let it cool down and harden before storing it in air-tight jars. The longer they cool, the crispier they become.

Additional Information:

7 Dec 2013 - We have many over-ripe 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 Daddy FECS favorite snack, but I really don't think that the store bought ones are healthy. It contains a lot of preservative and you can tell from the way the texture looks, unhealthy trans oil is part of the ingredients. 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 as it warms up the home as well :-) I use the egg slicer to slice the banana and make each slice more even :-) Little FECS and I had a cozy time together making banana chips.

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.
