First Secret Recipe Club of the new year!! I’m very excited to start back up with this club. It is such a great way to find new blogs and try new recipes! This month I was assigned the blog NYCityEats by Lacy. I wasn’t sure what I was in the mood to make (or should I say… in the mood to eat) so I went searching, page by page, through her recipes. Then, on page 7 of the side dishes, I found a unique recipe that I’ve always wanted to try: Banana Chips!! Lacy’s recipe looked so delicious and easy I just couldn’t pass it up!
Spicy Baked Banana Chips
2 large ripe bananas
1 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. turmeric
1 tsp. sea salt
Slice the bananas into thin, even rounds. Stir together the paprika, turmeric, and sea salt.
Generously cover the bottom of a sheet pan with olive oil. Lay the banana slices, in a single layer, onto the sheet pan. Drizzle with a bit more olive oil then sprinkle on the seasoning. I did not end up using all of my seasoning mix. And be warned this is very spicy!!
Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 7-8 minutes, gently flip, then bake for another 7-8 minutes. Let sit on the sheet pan a minute or two to cool and somewhat crisp up.
While all my chips didn’t completely, well, crisp into chips, they were still very delicious!! Enjoy!
