I haven't found any banana or plaintain chips that aren't fried. Try slicing sweet potato, beets, or turnips very thin (use a mandolin) and spray with a bit of soy sauce before baking in a single layer on a baking sheet. If you want more salt, give them a sprinkle when they come out.
Aahhh chips!! How I love them!!! How they love my behind!!! I totally quit buying them & my kids are grown & hubby doesn't eat them so, I'm lucky there! But, I will buy a bag of corn tortilla or pitas & making my own. I cook both kinds the same way Cut into triangles, spritz with water, shake a little Herbamare or seasalt on them & bake until crisp. Then you can have delicious salsa or hummus with them!! YUMMY!!!
Lately I've grabbed baby carrots when I get the munchies and start to crave chips. It does help. I think I need to just find some crunchy alternatives that will be satisfying, but not unhealthy. Banana chips are a good idea, but those can be fattening, too, because aren't they baked in oil?
Any suggestions for battling the chip addiction? A bag of chips doesn't last more than a day or two at my house. I stopped buying them, but my husband and daughter keep bringing the damn things in the house and I CANNOT RESIST. Help!!!
