But there is something special about making fruit chips. I don’t know if it is the crispiness or the taste, but they are simply delicious!


Ingredients Shot + Slicing the the Fruits

The list is not going to be long here… you literally only need 2 ingredients to make this Baked Banana Chips recipe (scroll down to recipe card for all quantities):

  • Bananas: use a slightly ripe fruit that is not too mushy yet – they should hold their shape when you slice them
  • Lemon Juice: a simple ingredient to boost the flavours and help the caramelisation and preservation of the fruit

You can also add your favourite spice or flavouring if you want to try something a little bit different.

For example:

  • sprinkle a little bit of Ground Cinnamon over the fruit slices
  • add some Vanilla Extract to the Lemon Juice
  • go tropical with some Ginger Powder or even Turmeric Powder


The process to make baked fruit chips is just as easy as the list of ingredients. You only need to slice the bananas, place them on a baking tray and brush them with lemon juice. That’s it!

  • Preheat your oven on 100’C/215’F and line one (or two) flat baking tray with baking paper or a baking mat.
  • Cut the Bananas into thin slices and place them on the baking paper, leaving some room between each slice. You can slice them straight or on a slight angle like I did for more elongated chips.
  • Brush the Lemon Juice over each slice, then flip them over and brush the other side.
  • Optional: sprinkle some Ground Cinnamon over the slices if you want
  • Bake in the oven for 1 to 1,5 hours, or until the Bananas Slices are firm and can be flipped over. Flip the slices and bake for an additional 30 minutes(see below for tips on how long to bake them for).

To make sure the bananas crisp perfectly in the oven, it is important to choose the right fruits:

  • Bananas that are not too firm but slightly ripe to bring the natural sweetness of the fruit. Very firm / young bananas won’t taste sweet at all.
  • Bananas that are not so ripe that they are hard to slice and don’t hold their shape. They will turn into mush in the oven.

As you can see above, the Bananas I used have small brown spots, showing that they are starting to ripen up but are not too ripe yet.

I also totally did something kind of random for us. I sliced up some bananas, had them swim in lemon juice and baked ’em. Then, I plopped ’em on top of my homemade chocolate granola and had myself a very homemade-ish breakfast. Brinner, too.

Sidenote? Breakfast for dinner is da bomb dot com.


A couple of weeks ago I was shopping at Walgreens for random things that I *think* I *might* need, and it was at that moment, during that meaningless shopping trip that I met up with my new love – dried mangoes. MANGOES! Lawwwwd, it had been a long time since I felt that kind of excitement. The best part? They were amazing. SO damn good!

What do dried mangoes have to do with dried bananas? Not much, really, except for the fact that since I couldn’t find fresh mangoes in January to make my own dried mangoes, I opted for the bananas. Basically, that’s how I ended up at the idea to make us Baked Banana Chips!

Also? Bananas  are rich in vitamin C, potassium, and fiber. Plus? Let’s just forget about freeze-dried or fried store-bought banana chips. That’s for amateurs. You and I are making our own, sans sugar, salt, oil, fryer, dehydrator, etc… A few bananas, thinly sliced, and a squeeze of lemon juice is all we are going to use. A baking sheet, too. Time and patience, as well.

Nutritious Snack Time

Looking for more nutritious options to make for your family or friends? Today we add Healthy Baked Banana Chips to our repertoire of healthy baked snack recipes.

We all know “fresh is best” and we should eat more fruits and veggies. Bananas are packed with vitamins, minerals, fiber, and nutrients.

Yet it is not always doable to carry fresh fruits and veggies with us throughout our busy days. It is rather unpleasant to discover that your lovely fresh banana has turned into a black mushy mess inside your bag.

There are times when you just want something different. Healthy Baked Banana Chips are a great solution!

You can find banana chips in nearly every grocery, health food, and even convenience store. Yet most of those pre-packaged imposters are fried in oil and coated with ingredients you want to avoid.

The mass-produced banana chips may not be quite as virtuous as you would like to think. So why not make your own?

Our Healthy Baked Banana Chips are so basic and so simple to make. I have made them in a food dehydrator for years, but you don’t have to go out and purchase a new piece of kitchen hardware to make them in your own home.

Your oven will do quite nicely.

No frying is required, and no preservatives are necessary. A few bananas and a couple of lemons are all it takes.

Simple Baked Banana Chips

Now, you can make as many Healthy Baked Banana Chips as you like. However,  most ovens will only hold two to three baking sheets at once, and it does take a bit of time to dry them out.

Think of the tortoise and the hare analogy… Slow and steady wins the race. Low and slow is the way to go when baking bananas as well.

The goal here is not to cook the banana slices to death. Instead, we want to cause evaporation, thus preserving the bananas from decomposition.

The thinner the slices are, the more quickly they will dry.

Making Healthy Baked Banana Chips is a perfect multi-tasking opportunity.

Once the bananas are sliced, dipped in lemon juice, and placed on a parchment-covered baking sheet, you have about three hours to relax and enjoy a favorite activity.

Or check a few items off your “To Do” list. Just make sure to stick around the house so you can flip the banana slices over halfway through cooking.

Healthy Baked Banana Chips are an ideal portable snack. Add them to granola, baked goods, salads, and yogurt for a little edible excitement!

How To Make Banana  Chips

  1. Slice. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F. Peel and slice the bananas into 1/16th to 1/8th inch slices. A mandolin slicer makes the job much easier.
  2. Prepare. Dip or brush the banana slices with lemon juice placing them close together on parchment lined baking sheets.
  3. Bake. Bake in the oven for 1 to 1 1/2 hours. They should be able to be peeled off parchment easily, flip banana chips over and continue baking approximately 1 to 1 1/2 hours longer until desired dryness is achieved.


  • Check the banana slices occasionally to make sure they are not over cooking. 
  • They will crisp up as they cool and become firm and leathery, yet remain flexible. 
  • Allow them to cool completely before storing in an airtight container in a cool dark place. For long-term storage, refrigerate or freeze.
