Awhile back I was on a quest for some sort of acceptable chip while following a strict diet. Tatziki, salsa, guacamole, and hummus are all very healthy and delicious dips, but the problem is the things that we dip into them aren't quite good for you. Especially if you eat a lot of them. Well I think I finally found my winner. I made these the other day after being frustrated by grocery store banana chips. The packaging didn't say anything! It seemed like there were 4 or 5 different brands, but none of them had any information on them. Ingredients: Sweetened Banana Chips. WHAT?!?! Don't we live in a day and age where you have to put more info on the label? Are these fried? What are they sweetened with? Why are they even sweetened? Bananas are crazy sweet to begin with. I hung up my banana in disgust and I head for the door. When I got home, I sliced some bananas, put them in the oven at 170 degrees on convection, and about 5 hours later I had these amazing little chips.
Slice at an angle so your chips are long enough to dip! Yet another terrible thing about stupid grocery store banana chips! Worst.
A quick brush of lime juice on both sides will prevent browning. I also very lightly salted them.
170 is the lowest setting on my oven. The real important part though is the convection aspect. The fan in the oven helps with the dehydrating process. I suppose if you have a dehydrator you could do this just as easily.
They were very crunchy, a little sweet, a little sour from the lime juice, and all around delicious.
Have a good weekend everyone! I'm in New Hampshire today falling down a mountain somewhere.
