Are these Banana Chips healthy?
A raw banana provides plenty of health benefits.
But to be honest, You ain't going to gain these benefits when you consume a single serving of these banana chips...
(Just end up having extra carbs and fat...)
On the other hand, Banana chips are a healthier alternative to potato chips and other store-bought snacks.
Can I make it without the Air Fryer Lid?
Air Fryer Lid (or similar lid) is the best option, but if you don't have one, here are a few more ways:
Dehydrate at 135°F for 10 hours.
Then lip the chips and dehydrate for another 2 hours or until dry.
You can also use the dehydrator function on the Instant Pot \ Air Fryer lid.
Heat oven to 200 °F and bake for 1 hour. Flip and bake again for 1 more hour.
Place in a single layer on a plate and microwave for 1 minute.
Flip chips and microwave for 1 more minute.
Wait 1 minute and microwave for 1 last minute.
What kind of toppings and seasonings should I use?
There are a bunch of options with seasonings.
Just a little bit of salt is one of my favorite ways to snack on my banana chips. But you can try:
- Changing up the salt.
- Vary spices like ground cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, paprika.
- Use cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes, or chipotle to add some heat
- If you have a sweet tooth then add melted chocolate, cardamom, or cinnamon sugar at the end to make them sweeter.
- soak in water with lemon water instead of salt & turmeric.
Can I make these ahead of time?
Of course, make them ahead for an anytime snack or eat.
Just let the chips cool down and then store them in a dry airtight container for a week.
Make sure they are completely cool so no moisture is added to the container.
