Banana Chews

Jill Dalton
If you are trying to kick your sugar habit then these Banana Chews are the perfect vegan snack for you. They are so sweet, rich and chewy that you will forget all about your sugar cravings! These are nothing like their dried banana chip cousins that are usually coated in oil and sometimes sugar before drying to make them crispy. These banana chews are JUST banana. You can even step them up a notch and sprinkle them with cinnamon before drying them or add some creamy chocolate spread after they are done drying for a super decadent treat.

    1. Yes, You can bake them on a parchment lined baking tray and baked at the lowest temperature setting 180F ish and check every couple hours

  1. Howdy. I’ve been strict vegetarian for over 20 years now. I started doing Dr. McDougall’s plan because that what was around then. No added oils, low salt, etc. But over time I drifted into oily foods, and added sugars. I thought I was doing great! But NO! Got my bloodwork back, and found my cholesterol was way high, so I did it once and I’m doing it again. Back to low/no added sugar, low salt, no processed oils… But THIS time, there is your Whole Foods Plant Based Cooking Show! I have binge watched many of your videos, and even bookmarked several of them for future cooking sessions. With all of these fantastic recipes I’ll have no trouble staying in the lifestyle now. Thank you and your husband so much for caring enough to put these out there for us. And folks like me who will be able to (hopefully!) stay off medications to keep my cholesterol levels down.
    All the best, James
