Horror of horrors, I’ve discovered the most dastardly trick. Banana chips are not DRIED, they are DEEP-FRIED! Needless to say I’m taking them off the recommended foods list. 2 banana chips = 140 calories! 2 chips! 140 calories! I know that we don’t count calories here at the UnDiet, but that’s just too outrageous for 2 little chips!
Thankfully there are some great substitutes for one of my favorite snacks. Banana Crisps are lightly sweetened (sigh) and baked. Roasted Plantain Chips are roasted with a little oil and no sugar. Dried Bananas are simply sliced bananas, dried with nothing added. Nothing But Bananas Flattened are dried whole bananas. All of these can be found at Trader Joes and the Dried Bananas can be found at most health food stores.
I don’t make a meal of any of these, but they are great for a little snack or on the side with a sandwich or soup.
