How To Make Air Fryer Banana Chips

  • Coat the banana chips with olive oil and salt.

  • Cook for about 10-12 minutes or till as golden as you want.
  • Let cool down and serve.

How To Make Baked Banana Chips

  • Preheat oven to 375F / 190C.

  • Bake 18-22 minutes or until golden turning halfway through.
  • Let cool before serving.

How To Make Banana Chips on Stovetop

  • Transfer the chips into a mixing bowl and season with salt and any desired seasonings.
  • Heat oil in a skillet or frying pan over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking.
  • Fry the bananas in batches till they are golden on one side then turn them over and fry the other side (about 5 minutes in total). Avoid overcrowding the pan. Note that the second side cooks much quicker than the first side.
  • Remove from the oil with a slotted spoon, transfer the chips to a plate lined with kitchen paper towels to drain excess oil.
  • Continue till all are done, and then let cool completely before serving.


  • Use a mandoline or sharp knife to slice the banana chips.
  • Cut the chips to the same width so that they cook at the same rate.
  • Feel free to slice chips lengthwise if you prefer.
  • Let them cool before serving as they crisp up more when as they cool.
  • Use the oils you have. If not following the Whole30 plan, you can fry the banana using rapeseed oil, peanut oil, or sunflower seed oil.
  • It is easy for these to go from cooked to burnt, so watch them very carefully towards the end of their cooking time.
  • You might need to reduce the heat on the oil after turning the chips, as the second side cooks much quicker than the first.
If you use a no-calorie cooking spray, there are 0 Blue Plan SmartPoints in a serving.
