Dehydrated Banana

Perfect as a snack dehydrated bananas are both an easy thing to make and enjoyable to eat.

If new to using a dehydrator this is a good recipe to start with.

Once made the dehydrated banana can be eaten as a snack or combined with nuts and other dried fruits to make a trail mix or scroggin. They also can be used to decorate cakes or other baked goods.

Ingredients

4 to 8 bananas

optional, fruit dehydration protection

optional, oil

Equipment

Dehydrator

Recipe Directions

  1. Peal the bananas.

  2. Slice the bananas to desired thickness.

    Thin as possible (2mm to 4mm) creates a quicker dry time and crispy result
    Medium thickness (5mm to 8mm) creates a soft banana or longer dry time
    Thick cut (9mm +) creates a softer product more like a banana chew

  3. Lay the pieces of banana out evening across the dehydrator racks with enough space between for the air to circulate around them.

  4. Set the temperature to 175 degrees F (80 degrees C) then set to cook for 8 hours, or until the bananas reach the crispness you prefer.

    This temperature may need to be adjusted based on characteristics of particular dehydrators and local environmental conditions.

  5. Optional additional steps

    1/ Lightly sprinkle the banana slices with a fruit dehydration protection. This can stop browning and add additional sweetness.

    2/ Very lightly rub oil over the racks to stop the banana sticking. This is more important when creating softer bananas.
