Dehydrating Bananas ~ Great for Healthy Snacking!

Banana Chips - Dehydrated Healthy Snack!

Did you know dehydrating bananas is a quick and easy way to make great banana chips for on-the-go munching?

When re-hydrated: voila! banana pudding! It's a great way to use up bananas as we all know they tend to turn brown so fast!

The longer you let your bananas "go," the sweeter they become.

And softer.

And then it's time to dehydrate them!

NOTE: Check out this fantastic recipe for Banana Cinnamon Rolls that are very healthy and pretty much "fat free."

But for those bananas that are "too far gone", consider using them in smoothies – the riper, the better!

Tip: Chill Bananas Prior to Slicing

OK, off we go to grab a bunch – or two –

When you're ready, make sure to chill your bananas first!

It makes the bananas much easier to slice  without them going all mushy!

Dehydrating Bananas - The Easiest Fruit on the Planet!

  1. First, prepare the bananas by unzipping them and slicing evenly. Not too thick and not too thin. Don't forget, you can slice your bananas lengthwise too – so you can wrap it around dates and other fruits (and in our recipe Banana Cinnamon Rolls)! Use your knife and a chopping board, or use a mandoline. TIP: Chill bananas a short while first for easier slicing – less mushiness – (as mentioned above!)
  2. Grab a bowl and generously spray the banana slices with lemon juice, tossing gently to make sure they are evenly coated. TIP: Use a pump-top from a new unused spray bottle, pick one that fits your lemon juice bottle, look for one that has a long enough plastic tube that will reach to the bottom of your lemon juice bottle.
  3. Arrange the sliced bananas on your dehydrator trays, making sure they don't overlap.
  4. Turn on your dehydrator and set the temperature between 125°F and 135°F (or per your food dehydrator's instructions).
  • Dried bananas will feel leathery when fully dried.
  • Drying time: between 6-12 hours.
  • Please remember to rotate your trays, for even drying.

Bananas are great any way you slice 'em, but dehydrated bananas are fantastic in granola, banana bread, pudding, cookies ... and baby food!

Bananas sliced lengthwise are great for our Banana Cinnamon Rolls.
(Don't fully dehydrate the sliced bananas at the start ...)
