These chewy dehydrated bananas are a great healthy snack and they're easy to make. Transform brown bananas into chewy dried bananas for your pantry or emergency supplies.
NOTE: For every five pounds of bananas, use 1/2 cup of lemon juice. It will take 20 or so pounds to fill a 9-tray dehydrator. Adjust the amount to suit your needs.
It helps to have a lovely assistant. If you can wrangle someone into peeling the bananas while you slice, it will go much more quickly.
Timing is important. For chewy dried bananas, plan to turn the dehydrator on in the morning so the bananas can be put away that evening, or start them in the evening so they can dry overnight. You can let them go longer, absolutely, but they might be a bit more on the crispy side.
I have a 9-tray Excalibur dehydrator. It takes about 35-40 pounds of bananas to fill it. Dehydrated, those bananas will fill a gallon jar or thereabouts.
