Dried Banana Chips
If you’re looking for a healthy, crispy treat, these oven dried banana chips is exactly what you need! Crunchy banana slices with lots of natural sweetness is a great low calorie snack your family is going to love.
Peel the bananas and cut them into thin discs. The thinner you cut them, the faster they dry out in the oven. Aim to cut them in 5 mm or ¼ inch discs, or thinner.
Dehydrate them in the oven at 250°F / 100°C fan oven / 120°C for 2-3 hours. The banana slices are done when they have dried out and are crispy.
Leave the banana chips to cool down completely before serving them.

Here are my best tips for perfect oven baked banana slices:
- Be patient as the banana slices bake. Don’t be tempted to increase the temperature of the oven, as this can cause the bananas to burn.
- I like to make my banana chips plain, but you can try to add some seasoning such as cinnamon if you wish.
- The banana chips will naturally brown as they dry out. If you want the banana slices to be more yellow, you can coat them in a thin layer of lemon juice before you bake them.
