So on top of being sick and stressed- it snowed this morning.

I really thought we were going to get some warmer weather and I wake up to find snow all over my car.  I was so surprised that I had to do a double take out of complete and utter confusion as to what the white stuff was all over my car.

This is an evil trick mother nature….

Baked Banana Chips | @naturallyella

On to better things:  I love banana chips.  When I was younger, I would always buy banana chips out of the bin at the local health food store and usually devour whatever I bought.

Until I realized the ridiculous amount of sugar (and sometimes high fructose corn syrup) they had in them.  So, I gave up eating banana chips and move onto other things.  That is until I saw a recipe from A Sweet Road. I was so excited that I made them the very same day.

So, if you love banana chips as much as I do I suggest making them yourself!  So easy and delicious!

 Updated as of 3/15: It’s imperative that you make sure your oven temperature is spot on (any lower and it will take forever and any higher, you risk burning). Also, the use of just-ripe bananas helps you cut those slices to the perfect 1/8″ thickness (another must). Anything thicker will take much longer (I actually go a bit thinner and start checking at an hour!)

Serves: 4 to 6 servings
Ingredients
  • 2-3 just ripe bananas
  • Lemon Juice
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 225˚.
  2. Slice bananas into ⅛" slices and layout in a single layer on a baking tray covered with parchment paper. Brush with lemon juice.
  3. Bake until bananas have dried out, 2-3 hours. Check bananas after about 90 minutes and peel up from the parchment paper to help air circulate a bit better (I used my fingers as the bananas are still a bit moist).
  4. Remove from oven and let cool for another 30-60 minutes (banana chips with crisp more as they cool.) If you remove the banana chips too soon and they do not start to crisp after about 5 minutes of being out of the oven, return to the oven for another 15 to 20 minutes.
