Ready for some delicious air fryer banana chips? Here’s how to make them:
First, slice your bananas into thin slices, around a quarter-inch thick. Mix up some lemon juice and water in a bowl and soak the banana slices to keep them from browning. Once they’re soaked, pat them dry and preheat your air fryer to 350 degrees.
Spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray and arrange the banana slices in it. Don’t crowd the basket or your chips won’t get as crispy. Make sure to lay them out in a single layer in the basket – you may need to cook them in multiple batches.
Sprinkle the seasoning of your choice over the banana slices. Cook each batch for about four to five minutes on both sides, then let them cool on a wire rack to get that perfect crunch. Repeat with the remaining slices, letting them cool completely to get nice and crisp. Trust us, these chips are the perfect tasty, healthy snack that you won’t want to miss!
