If you ever buy them, how do you use them other than just for snacking or banana bread? Thank you!
They are good on oatmeal! When in a pinch and you don't have fresh bananas :o)
They're good in GORP (good ole' raisins and peanuts) to take hiking or snack on while on car trips. They might be good in homemade granola too. What about dipping in a slightly sweetened yogurt dip?
- I add broken banana chips to a plain oatmeal muffin recipe (I'm guessing, 1/3 c. for 6 muffins).
- Crush them and add to peanut butter for PB and Banana sandwich.
- Just like using them in GORP and oatmeal, you can chop them up a bit and add them to homemade granola.
From: Making and Using Dried Foods - by Phyllis Hobson
3 c. (750 ml) old-fashioned oatmeal
1-1/4 c. (315 ml) chunky-style peanut butter
1/2 c. (125 ml) honey
1/2 c. (125 ml) butter or margarine
1 c. (250 ml) chopped dried banana slices
Spread oats over a baking sheet or jelly-roll pan in a 250Â°F (120Â°C) oven. Toss until lightly browned for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, in a heavy skillet, melt peanut butter, honey, and butter or margarine, stirring until smooth. Stir in toasted oats and dried bananas. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto wax paper. Chill until firm. Store in refrigerator. Makes 4 cozen snacks.
All much appreciated great ideas I hadn't thought of! Grainlady, thanks for sharing that recipe. Looks quick and healthy enough to try out on my scouts. Thank you all! Sue
