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.
