Today we are making Chewy Dried Banana Chips!
First off, I hope you all are having an absolutely terrific day. My day, well it’s been a bit busy. BUT I had lunch with my Mommy, so that is always good. I will say, if you are a busy bird like me, it is important to step back and appreciate the things that matter the most… Like your Mom. I was downtown earlier today by mother’s job and was contemplating whether to call her up for a lunch date or to go home and get back to work. Well, I ended up picking her up for lunch and I couldn’t of made a better decision. Good food, laughter and great conversation. You must think about what it is you are working hard for. For me it’s always been about helping people, living a financially comfortable life and to be able to take any stress away from my mother. I gotta buy her a house one day! And I’ve already her promised her a trip to Paris! My advice. Never be too busy for the people you love. But work freakin’ hard, kick ASS and make your dreams come true.
Okay, shall we get to the Dried Banana Chips recipe?
So my banana chips are a bit different, if you haven’t noticed from the title. They are chewy! At an attempt to make banana chips (the crunchy kind,) somehow they came out chewy. And I aint even mad, because OMG they are so delicious. Like candy almost. Chewy, Tangy and Sweet is the perfect description.
You can add these banana chips to a yogurt parfait, cereal, a homemade trail mix or you can simply eat it by itself. I even added them to my healthy granola bars! I mean, you kind of NEED this recipe, so I’m basically your fairy god mother. Not to worry the magic will start in 5 … 4… 3… 2… 1 !!!
3 Ripe Bananas
Lemon Juice from 3 Freshly Squeezed Lemons
Step 1: Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
Step 2: Thinly slice each of the bananas.
Step 3: Dip each of the slices into the lemon juice fully. (You can add 1/2 tsp of honey and a sprinkle of cinnamon to the lemon juice if you like.)
Step 4: Place the dipped banana slices on a pan lined with parchment paper.
Step 5: Place the pan in the oven.
Step 6: Leave the banana slices in the oven for 90 minutes. After the 90 minutes are up flip the over each banana slices and place them in the oven for another 90 minutes. (When I flipped mine, I placed them on a new sheet of parchment paper, since the original one was wet from the bananas.
Step 7: Take the banana chips out and let them cool for an hour or two. Then eat!!!
