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