Oven-Toasted Banana Chips

Among my favourite Singapore desserts is “Goreng Pisang” – which literally means deep-fried banana. I’ve never made it before, but I believe you have to coat the banana with flour and then you deep-fry it. Goreng Pisang is something I very much associate with Singapore and my childhood, and I remember vividly my dad bringing home bags of them for us to eat. A treat that was so very sinfully delicious and mouth-watering, but also extremely unhealthy.

So I was thinking…how about we re-create these childhood memories with a much healthier alternative that we can eat without feeling all guilty and oily?

Today’s google search gave me the idea of a oven-toasted banana chips, that seemed simple enough. So I thought I’d make them and see how they turned out…

The smell of bananas cooking in the oven is one of the most beautiful smells I know. It is sweet without being overwhelming, twirls of aroma wrapping the kitchen in a gorgeous maze. The result was absolutely amazing, crispy and soft, bursting with flavours of this delicious fruit.

How do we make it? Here goes..
