Simple Pleasure: Baked Banana Chips

Is it just me, or is snacking (a lot) so much better than eating full meals? I’m a constant snacker, munching on little things here and there (and if they’re somewhat sweet and addictive, that’s all the better). Which is why I was really excited when I decided to whip up a simple little snack yesterday that, if not completely healthy, was at least both sweet and made from fruit: Baked Banana Chips.

This snack really is as easy as slicing, drizzling, sprinkling and baking (and eating, of course!). And trust me, you’ll want to eat these baked chips a lot. They’re sweet enough to serve as a nice after-dinner nibble and just crisp-but-chewy enough to throw in your yogurt, oatmeal or cereal for a morning or daytime snack. And if you really want to spice things up, you can always try using a flavored honey for baking (I used my trusty lavender honey) to give it another level of flavor.

Ready to make this simple, sweet snack for yourself? Just check out the three-ingredient recipe below.
