Healthy snack with no unnecessary ingredients. Great way to preserve fruit and use up very ripe bananas.

Step 1: Ingredients

Coconut oil

Step 2: Blend

Blend your bananas until there are no clumps of any kind. I used 2 bananas and it was more than enough for a 9x13 cookie sheet.

Step 3: Oil

Put a tiny bit of oil on your tin foil or cookie sheet, the picture above is too much. Spread it around and then pour your banana soup onto the cookie sheet.

Step 4: Spread

Spread out the banana as thin and evenly as you can. A dough cutter or frosting knife works well for this.

Step 5: Bake

Bake at 180 for about 2 hours. Check every 30 minutes to make sure things are going well. Depending on how thin your spread is, 2 hours may be too long.

Step 6: Store

If you have any left after the leather comes out of the oven, use a pizza cutter to slice up the leather into strips and store in air tight plastic container for up to a month.

do u suppose that this could be done adding in some strawberries or other fruits?

You could. Fruits with many seeds like strawberries or raspberries tend to be harder to work with. It’s hard to extract the seeds and he give the leather a very different texture.
