CAUTION – EXTREMELY AWESOME GIVEAWAY BEING REVEALED TODAY!
I advise my readers to sit down and take a deep breath before reading this post!
Is it just at my house or does everyone have one of these super cool trees that grows bananas? I hardly ever see our tree bare. Right when I think the tree will bear not more fruit, more bananas magically appear! I love bananas, my sisters love bananas, and so does my mom. Today is a very special post as I have a recipe and a fantastic, unbelievably pawsome giveaway to tell you about. Before I get to that stuff, I have to say that bananas are healthy for people and dogs, making them a great snack food!
Since I have to use my oven when I make treats that are dehydrated I decided to make banana chips because they are super simple and pretty fast. In the past I have posted recipes for chicken jerky, turkey jerky and other snacks. We make most of the jerky ourselves because sadly many pets have died eating jerky from China. Why risk it when I can make my own? For these chips all you need are bananas, a knife, parchment paper and a baking pan. I sometimes use peanut butter powder, but I’m currently out of that, so I just made them plain. They turned out really well and we ate a bunch of them as soon as they cooled off. You can click here to get the simple recipe in a pdf.
Now these chips take about two hours in the oven, which means the oven is tied up and I only have one oven. It sure would be nice to have a dehydrator! Keep in mind, you can probably get a dehydrator for $20 somewhere, but we are talking about the Porsche of dehydators here, my friends!
