Banana Chips

Makes 3 baking trays


1. 1 bag of approx. 7 large bananas


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, check after 1.5 hours, as every oven is different.
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 FECS use them to make banana chips this morning. It tasted very sweet. There is no need to add any additional sugar. Daddy FECS loves banana chips, so I am making them myself. It doesn't look so pretty, but it tastes really sweet and delicious.

I keep it simple, no need to use any lemon juice that many recipes call for. It turned out super. Perhaps the banana chips has a darker color, but it doesn't affect the taste.

Use only over-ripe bananas and not normal bananas, as the latter will taste hard and not sweet. The texture is very different.  We have tried it and had to throw them away as no one wanted to eat them. However, banana chips made with over-ripe bananas on the other hand taste crispy and very sweet.



18 Jan 2015 - I 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 :-) Sometimes I use the egg slicer to slice the banana to 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.
