I don’t know about you’re kids, but mine can devour anything banana. Straight up bananas, banana bread, chocolate banana muffins, chocolate covered frozen bananas, and banana chips. I love the banana chip option because it stores longer than fresh bananas. And so when our grocery store had some over-ripe bananas on a deep discount, I grabbed some to try making my own banana chips! I decided to use my dehydrator because I can plug it in out on my porch so it doesn’t heat up my house in the middle of the summer. Awesome! It was super easy and I can’t believe I haven’t tried it sooner. Oh, and my kids love them just as much as the store bought ones I normally get. So are you ready for this? Let’s get dehydrating!
Dehydrated Banana Chips
Step 1: Slice your over ripe bananas in to 3/8th inch thick slices and place on dehydrator trays.
Step 2: Set the dehydrator to 135 degrees and wait for 6-12 hours. (mine took about 8hrs)
Step 3: Remove the banana chips and allow to cool and then store in an airtight container.
I should mention that this homemade version doesn’t get crispy like store bought. These are more like banana leathers. But, good news, these are still delicious, and easy, and best of all, my kids like these better then the crispy store bought banana chips. Yay! So break out your dehydrator and enjoy!
