This is my favourite cracker/chip recipe. The first time I made these, I was blown away by the flavour. Like most people, I was expecting a banana and coconut flavoured cracker but I was completely wrong. This crackers taste just like a crispy potato chip and never last long in our house. Unfortunately these crackers won't work with regular banana's but be sure to keep an eye out for some cooking banana's next time you're at the markets. This recipe was inspired by this recipe.
3 large green cooking banana's (approx 2 cups pureed)
1/3 cup coconut oil
1-2 teaspoons of herbamare salt
Fill a sink with hot water and place unpeeled banana's in it to soak for about 5 minutes. This will help with peeling but you may still need to use a knife to peel back the skin. Cut banana's into chunks and place them in a food processor or thermomix and blend until quite smooth (like hummus). I find this takes about 1-2 minutes in the thermomix or a high speed blender but may take up to 5 minutes in a regular blender. Add coconut oil and a few pinches of herbamare and continue to blend until well combined. Line a large tray with baking paper and preheat the oven to 180 Degrees Celsius. Spoon mixture into the middle of a baking tray and carefully spread the mixture evenly using a knife or spatula until it covers the whole tray. Place in the oven and cook for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and using a knife or pizza cutter,make cuts in dough. Return to oven and cook for a further 60 minutes. At this stage, your crackers may be crispy and ready but I often find that I need to flip mine over and cook for another 10 minutes.
