Baked Banana Chips
Ground Cinnamon, to taste
Preheat your oven on 100°C / 215°F and line one (or two if needed) flat baking tray with baking paper or a baking mat.
Cut the Bananas into thin slices (1) and place them on the baking tray. Leave room between each slice.
Juice the Lemon and brush it over each slice. Turn the slices around and brush the other side.
Optional: sprinkle some Ground Cinnamon over the slices, using a small sieve or sifter to avoid lumps.
Bake in the oven for 1 to 1,5 hours, or until the Bananas Slices can be flipped over (2). Turn each slice around bake for an additional 30 minutes (3).
Leave to cool down then transfer into an air-tight container.
I cut the bananas to a thickness of about 5mm / 0.2 inches. You can cut them thicker if preferred but they will need to bake longer. If cut thiner, I have found that they will break more easily.
If the bananas seem to be falling apart / turn to mush when you try to flip them, it means that they are not baked enough. The slices may stick to the baking paper - if it is the case, use a small sharp knife to lift up a side. They should then come off easily. Also note that the cooler they get, the easier they will be to flip around as they harden.
Bake less or more the second time, depending on how crunchy or how chewy you want your chips to be. Note that they will harden once they cool off.
