Bananas are a favorite in the dehydrating world, and even perhaps stand next to apples as the spokespersons for food dehydration. Most people have tried store-bought banana chips before; either freeze dried or dehydrated. The great thing about making them yourself is there are no added chemicals, and it’s cheaper!
A properly dehydrated banana chip will “click” when dropped on the table, and can be easily snapped in half but not crushed. If yours do not feel this way, just put them back in the dehydrator for a few more hours! A freeze dried dehydrated banana chip, for comparison, will crush to powder under pressure.
