Cinnamon Banana Chips

How does that name not sound appealing? Besides the name the best part is there is only 3 ingredients in it, and 2 of them are in the name of the recipe! There is an aha moment for you. Thank you spaindex.com for this gem!

Steer clear of purchased banana chips which are usually coated in sugar (for a fruit already sweet on its own!) and preservatives.  Instead, try this simple recipe for Cinnamon Banana Chips.  They are great way to satisfy sweet and crunchy cravings at the same time.  Bananas pack an energy punch and sustain your blood sugar, and they are officially recognized by the FDA for being high in potassium and low in salt,  which helps to lower blood pressure and protect against heart attack and stroke.

 

Ingredients
  • 3 bananas
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Method
  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F
  2. Slice bananas thinly and arrange on a parchment lined baking sheet
  3. Drizzle banana slices with lemon juice and sprinkle with cinnamon
  4. Bake for approximately 1 hour, checking frequently for crispness. Remove when chips are crisp, which may take less than or more than 1 hour depending on your oven
