1 banana
acidic fruit juice (lemon, lime, orange, pineapple) to reduce browning (optional)
cinnamon or other flavorings (optional)


  1. Wash hands with soap and water.
  2. Slice bananas into 1/8 to 1/4-inch slices.
  3. OPTIONAL:  Dip banana slices into fruit juice to reduce browning.  Sprinkle with cinnamon or other flavorings if desired.
  4. Dry until pieces bend like thick leather and no longer feel sticky.
  • Oven Instructions: Set oven to lowest temperature possible (175 to 200 degrees F). Use convection bake if available.  Arrange banana slices in a single layer on a wire rack or baking sheet.  A wire rack will help the banana dry faster.  A baking sheet takes longer and pieces need to be turned part way through drying. Drying takes 1 to 3 hours.
  • Dehydrator Instructions: Arrange banana slices in a single layer on dehydrator racks.  Set dehydrator to 135 degrees F. Drying takes 6 to 12 hours.

5. Cool. Store in an airtight container or bag.
