Ingredients

  • 2 large bananas
  • 1-2 teaspoons salt
  • cold water
  • vegetable oil

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, add cold water and salt. Whisk until the salt is completely dissolved.
  • Peel the bananas, and cut them into about 1/8-inch slices.
  • Place the sliced bananas into the salt water. Soak for about 5 minutes.
  • Remove the banana slices with a slotted spoon and place them on paper towels. Dry them completely.
  • Brush the banana slices with oil.
  • Place the banana slices into the air fryer basket in one single layer. Brush them with olive oil one more time. Cook in batches if needed.
  • Cook at 300°F for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Flip chips after 15 minutes.
  • Remove from the air fryer and allow them to cool down completely before storing.

Notes

  • Use ripe but firm bananas, avoiding mushy or bruised ones.
  • If you prefer crispier and crunchier banana chips, cut your banana slightly thinner.
  • Soaking the sliced bananas with salt water prevents the chips from turning brown. You can skip this step if you don’t mind the brown look of your chips.
  • They’ll become crispier as they cool down.
  • Store banana chips in an air-tight container, and they’ll last up to 2 weeks at room temperature.
