 I would like to know how to make banana chips without the added fat and sugar of commercial ones. 

Can that be done?  How do you make them at home?

I found a dehydrator on sale at a store that was closing.   It takes about 10-12 hours in it, but I know you can do it with thinly sliced (at least 3/8th an inch) in the oven over 4-6 hours at 150-200.   A lot of depends on your humidity when using the oven,

 I had a dehydrator, but it took up too much room in the kitchen cupboard so I had my hubby take it to the garage.  He says he thinks he tossed it.

So, you do not add any oil or sugar?  They come out crisp?

Not always.   This batch did because it isn't 80% humidity.


I sliced the bananas and apples on a hand held mandolin and then layered them.   Two tray of each were coated with either cinnamon and brown sugar or allspice.


All of them are completely dried after 12 hours.


I'm not really trying to be a doomsday person, just someone making snacks.
