Homemade Banana Chips

I’m on a raw food kick. After a WHOLE raw apple pie last week, I couldn’t just stop there.

Homemade Banana Chips - Natural Sweet Recipes

I’ve made homemade apple chips and loved them, so now it’s time for banana chips! Raw fruit chips are recipes that make great use out of dehydrators.  I am not sure if I can convince you to run out and get a dehydrator today, but I am going to try to convince you to believe how delicious raw fruit can be!

Homemade Healthy Banana Chips - Natural Sweet Recipes

After a few hours, little banana slices are transformed into sweet chips that are sooo delicious and chewy! Seriously, nature’s candy is right here! These sweet things are almost like homemade caramel chips. A little lemon juice keeps them bright and free from browning but that’s the only other ingredient other than fresh, ripe bananas.

Vegan Sugar-Free Banana Chips I’m adding these to our Kids Approved Natural Treats list and am planning on stocking up on them for my next road trip. Once you make them, you’ll never want to be without them. Enjoy!

Homemade Banana Chips  (vegan, raw, gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free!)

3 Large Ripe Bananas
1/2 Large Lemon

Slice bananas about 1/4″ inch slices. You can cut slices thinner than 1/4″, but they will be firmer and harder.  1/4 inches will create the perfect chewy crunch! Drizzle slices with lemon juice. Lightly spray dehydrator sheets with a thin coating of coconut oil or natural oil spray. Lay banana pieces on tray. Dehydrate at 135 degrees for 15 hours for softer banana chips or 18 for more firm chips. Store chips in an airtight container at room temperature.

  1. I realllllly want a dehydrator, but it’s hard to justify adding to my overflowing kitchen. I’ll just dream about these chips until I finally make the plunge. These look incredible and I love banana chips!

  2. Amazing! I love banana chips in regular nut mixes. These sounds awesome and I think banana chips are my favorite part! Love this idea.

    • Yes, I love bananas in nut mixes too! Homemade ones are softer, which I love, but if you left them in for about 20 hours, they would be even more hard like a lot of those store-bought chips. But that’s the best part about making banana chips yourself – you can always change it up! :)

  3. I would have never thought of making banana chips at home! This is brilliant! :)

    • Oh they are sooo easy to make at home! And I didn’t realize how much more delicious homemade banana chips are than store-bought.

  4. Gorgeous pictures! These sound great!
