simple cookery: banana candy

I know they don’t look very appetizing, but trust me, these get gobbled up almost before they hit the plate.  They are the easiest thing in the world to make, just two ingredients and technically one of them is optional.  Slice bananas approximately 1/2″ thick.  Arrange them on dehydrator trays and sprinkle with cinnamon (this would be the optional part).  Dehydrate at 145 for around 24 hours.  You don’t want them to get crispy, just chewy.  They will feel softer while still warm and chewier as they cool.  Take a few out to test from time to time until you get to your ideal texture.  Helpful hint: do not let your children test them or there will be little hands snatching them off the racks every time you turn your back!  We have experimented a bit with making them in the oven and it is possible, but trickier.

    What a great idea! I have two little boys who are always hungry, so an easy healthy snack like this is perfect, thanks!
