chip off the old banana bread

Banana Bread made with Banana ChipsWhile cleaning out my kitchen cabinets this week, I found a jar of dried banana slices from 2 years ago. Once upon a time, I thought it would be a great idea to dry bananas I bought for $.20/lb, and use them as a snack. No takers from my kids. Maybe the slices were too thick.

I hated to throw the slices away since I had already paid for the electricity to dry them. I chose to reconstitute the banana slices in water for several hours, and then puree them with my hand blender. They pureed pretty well, well enough to go into banana bread.
