I saw a recipe on Pinterest for homemade banana chips. The picture looked like this…
The text read: “Slice banana into thin chips, dip in lemon juice, and spread on a cookie sheet. Bake for 2 hours @ 200 degrees and flip. Bake for another 1.5-2 hours or until crisp, MAYBE add cinnamon”
They looked delicious and sounded easy enough… only mine turned out like this:
Aesthetically, they were an epic fail but they still tasted great. Here are some tips in case you want to make these chips at home.
I used 3 bananas, sliced at a diagonal about 1/4 inch thick; thinner slices stuck to the cookie sheet and were miserable to scrape off. I cooked them at 200 degrees for 3.5 hours, flipping once (hello high electric bill) and used a spatula to remove the chips while they were still hot. The banana chips get crunchy as they cool so for the most crunch wait until the chips completely cool off.
If you make these with more success please let me know!
