Rate: **** 

Dehydrated banana & apple chips


1 banana
1 fuji aple
1/4 tsp cinnamon (sprinkled on apples)
1/4 tsp nutmeg (sprinkled on bananas)
1/4 cup raisins


  1. Preheat oven to 225 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. cut apples and bananas into thin 1-2 millimeter slices
  3. Sprinkle spices onto the fruits
  4. place them onto trays with parchment paper (different fruits on different trays since for us the apples took longer) 
  5. put in the oven for 1 hour and then flip them 
  6. check them every 15-30 minutes until dry and crispy 
  7. To add flavor I sprinkled cinnamon over everything once the fruits were mixed with the granola

What it should look like (minus the bananas and lemons)


Oven-dried banana chips



3/4 cup quick oats
1/2 cup whole oats
2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp butter
2 tsp maple syrup
1/4 cup hazelnuts


  1. add the oats together, then melt the butter,honey and maple syrup together, then add that to the oats
  2. bake the granola for 10/15 minutes then add the hazelnuts, raisins and/or any dried fruits you might want in it
  3. continue baking until the granola in golden around the edges (stir every 5 minutes) 


     A lot of the things i added to this mix came to me while i was making the granola so there are some things i would change if i did this again. I put the spices on about an hour in when they were already pretty dry, if i did this again i would put the spices on at the beginning before putting them in the oven so that they stick to the fruits better. For me, i prefer almonds over hazelnuts so if I could do this again I would change those and another thing that i think would be good is if i made my own raisins by dehydrating grapes. Lastly i would make more bananas and apples to fix the ration with the granola since the fruits seemed to be the favorite.
