I love making snacks myself! The great thing about homemade snacks is that you know exactly what you are eating-and you have no additives, preservatives or crazy ingredients that you can't pronounce.
Unlike banana chips from the store, the ones that I make are baked, not fried, and have no added fat.
Just one large banana contains 4 grams of , around 120 calories and 487mg of potassium. is a mineral that's crucial for life. Low potassium intake is linked to risks of high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, arthritis, cancer, digestive disorders, and infertility.
For protein and omega-3s, eat with almonds, or your favorite kind of nut! Add raisins, and chocolate chips, to satisfy that sweet and salty craving! Store in a jar, and you have your own personalized snack mix!
Slice a banana into 1/8-inch-thick rounds and lay on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 200 degrees F until golden, 2 to 3 hours. Let harden at room temperature.
