Healthy Banana Chips

You've more than likely seen banana chips in the bulk food section of your local grocery store, and although banana chips sound healthy, these little fellas are actually deep fried and filled with unwelcome fat and calories.  So in every attempt to eat healthy and save my splurges for things like cheesecake, pizza, and wine, I prefer to bake my chips instead.  Although time consuming, the result is a guilt-free snack that will appeal to all the banana lovers in your house.  Add them in with your granola, trail mix, or grab a handful and eat them straight up.  Any way you slice them, these crunchy little chips are sweet.  Yes, sweet.
