Turn over-ripe bananas into baked banana chips! This snack is easy to make and perfect for dipping with salsa, guacamole, or hummus!


  • 2 bananas
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • Kosher salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 250F. Line a large sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a small bowl, combine 4 parts (4 tablespoons) water with 1 part (1 tablespoon) lemon juice.
  3. Slice bananas very thin, about 1/8″ thick coins, brush with lemon juice and water mixture. Sprinkle with kosher salt.
  4. Bake at 250F for about 1 1/2  to 2 hours or until they are crispy, making sure to flip them over halfway through.
  5. Remove them from the oven and allow them to cool (the longer they cool the crispier they become).
