Air Fryer Banana Chips with Cinnamon

These Air Fryer Banana Chips with Cinnamon taste like nature’s candy! They are lightly sweetened and perfect for a healthy snack. Vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free.

  • Total Time: 22 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 2 bananas (not overly ripe)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil or your favorite cooking oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar or coconut sugar

Instructions

  1. Spray the bottom of your air fryer basket liberally with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Remove the bananas from their skins and slice the bananas thinly (about ¼-inch thick). Try to slice the bananas as uniformly as possible so they will cook evenly.
  3. Place the sliced bananas in a medium mixing bowl. Add the oil, cinnamon, and sugar. Toss gently to combine.
  4. Transfer the bananas to your air fryer basket and try to spread them out. It is okay if they overlap slightly, but they should mostly be in a single layer. Depending on the size of your air fryer, you many need to bake them in two batches.
  5. Set the temperature to 350°F for 10 minutes. Use tongs to turn the banana chips over and cook for an additional 7-10 minutes, or until they have started to brown and crisp up. Be careful to not let them burn.
  6. Transfer the banana chips to a serving plate to cool before serving. The banana chips will crisp up as they cool.

Notes

  1. Some air fryer models needs to be preheated. Check your manual and adjust your time accordingly.
  2. The best bananas for this recipe are ones that are yellow on the outside without too many brown spots. If the bananas are too ripe, they will be mushy and aren’t ideal for making into chips.
  3. You can use brown sugar or coconut sugar to sweeten the banana chips.
  4. Let any leftover cooked banana chips cool completely before storing. They will stay good in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.
