Dehydrated Bananas

Trying to pack for an overnight backpacking trip without any processed or packaged foods can be quite a challenge. Dehydrating food is perfect for camping, traveling, or just snacking as it is lightweight and doesn't need to be refrigerated. You can dehydrate almost anything--even full meals to reconstitute out in the wilderness. Try your hand at different fruits, vegetables, or meats. It's difficult to go wrong with dehydrating.. if they aren't done, just keep them in the dehydrator longer!

Bananas are one of my favorite things to dehydrate because they have a slightly chewy texture and a subtle sweetness. They can also be added to a bag of nuts and cocoa nibs for a satisfying trail mix!
