Bananas can be a healthy and delicious snack any time of the day. Full of nutrients and vitamins such as potassium, a banana is a low-fat way to keep you sated until your next meal. Like most fruit, bananas can go bad quickly. Given the environment, bananas can last from three days to a little over a week. Turning your bananas into banana chips can extend their shelf life and provide you with a highly portable snack. You can make your own banana chips by baking them in the oven.

  1. 1

    Preheat oven to 93.3 degrees Celsius. Place a sheet of parchment paper onto the baking pan.

  2. 2

    Cut the bananas with the knife into 3- to 6-mm (1/8- to 1/4-inch) thick slices. Dip the slices into the lemon juice and arrange them on the baking pan so that they do not overlap.

  3. 3

    Place the baking pan into the oven and cook the banana slices for 30 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and flip the slices over with a fork.

  4. 4

    Replace the baking pan into the oven. Continue removing the pan and flipping the banana slices every 30 minutes for a total of 3 1/2 to 4 hours.

  5. 5

    Remove banana chips and place them on a plate lined with a paper towel.
