Homemade Green Banana Chips

One of the many cravings I have, is for green banana chips; and when we have several hands of green bananas in our kitchen, munching on banana chips is all I find myself thinking about.

Most times, I just use two fingers of green bananas to make my chips, and this is how I make them:

  1. First, wash and peel the green bananas.
