About This Brand

Barnana is pioneering the natural foods space as the brand synonymous with banana-based snacks. The company is on a mission to end food waste on organic banana farms by upcycling the fruit that used to go to waste. About 2 of every 10 bananas that are grown never leave the farm. Barnana turns these "imperfect" bananas into delicious organic snacks. The idea for Barnana’s very first product was sparked in 1981 when Caue’s father began dehydrating bananas their backyard in Southern Brazil. The company was founded by Caue Suplicy (CEO), Nik Ingersoll (CMO) and Matt Clifford (COO) on the shores of La Jolla, California in late 2012.

Whole 30 compliant fruit

These tasty nuggets are delicious, and since they are made with 100% organic bananas and NO SUGAR, are Whole 30 compliant. Plus, the price is right!

- Lori Dodde

Hard to find, great price

First of all, it's SO hard to find dehydrated bananas that are JUST bananas. They usually have some kind of oil and/or sweetener. Not Barnana. These are delicious and pristine. I actually cut these into tiny pieces and use them for puppy treats, but I have been known to sneak one when my blood sugar was really low. Can't find a better price anywhere else, so I'm definitely stocking up!

- Kate

Great Snack

Great snack to satisfy a sugar craving. Perfect as an on-the-go snack and my preschooler loves them!

- Michelle


Perfect for travel & eating on the run. Imagine nonperisible pack- able bananas! They are my go to melatonin knockout before bed. And I can portion control.

- Lillian weddle


These were horrible, I gagged and spit it out.

- Debora


Looks can be deceiving! These brown chunks are a very tasty snack!

- Kellie

Don't Eat Half a Bag in One Sitting

And don't judge the ugly little things by their appearance.Brown/black banana nugget. Chewy and satisfying, but they will spike your blood sugar and are best in moderation. These would be an excellent addition to home-made energy bars.

- Jennifer


I don't feel bad snacking on these at night when I've got a sweet tooth.

- Jennifer

Well I certainly didn't expect these...

I should have read the description with greater attention - however this product had great reviews and I love bananas. and as I try to eat organic this seemed like the ideal treat for me. I couldn't have been more wrong! I was expecting chips the color of fresh banana s, not rotten ones but these odd black chips just taste vile to me! Perhaps the color impacted my erception of the taste of them I don't know. As you get a decent-sized bag of these babies, I have tried them multile times, but I can never get beyond one unenthusiastic nibble and finally these under ip in the trash bin. Take heart, these aren't too expensive and oothers seem to love them so give them a try and see what you think - just keep in mind these are not ANYTHING like dried banana chips other than they aremade from the same fruit (personally, I don't see why they don't call them banana "chews' which is a bit closer in description of these rotted banana liitle buggers...

Surprisingly Addictive

These are great. They are like a Larabar without the nuts, and sort of give the impression of gummy candy (sort of). I didn't think I would like them this much, but I am having trouble not finishing the whole bag.

- Cho

Never Mind the Color...

I was a little wary when I first tried these, because they were a dark, dark brown color. But when I looked into them further, I learned they are supposed to look that way. I also found it interesting that most bananas get thrown out because they aren't "pretty" enough. Such a waste!

I'm glad I tried them! I love bananas, but I don't always eat them in time and they go bad, and they tend to get bruised in my bag. These are great snack on the go, and the Potassium keeps me from cramping up on long bike rides! They are very chewy and very sweet, I cannot recommend them enough!

- Thelma Moody

Great Energy Gel Replacement

I'm a big marathon and endurance event runner and I have been hoping to find an energy gel replacement for a long time now. They began becoming harder to stomach and gave me many gastrointestinal issues but I kept using them because they were necessary for energy.

I discovered barnana this past year and they have been very easy to eat while I'm training and running. Barnana is partially dehydrated bananas so they are filled with potassium which I believe cured my cramping legs. They are much cheaper than energy gel packets and the results are a million times better!

- K. Abbot

Needed more banana.

I love almost any banana treat. Although this bar had a great chewiness to it, it lacked more of the banana taste I was anticipating.

Still a great workout bar since it is low in fat and gluten free, with a dose of potassium. Will buy again!

- Miguel C.

Yummy, energizing and ADDICTIVE!

These are my new favorite workout snacks. A friend of mine shared some with me at the gym and I was hooked! They sit well in my stomach even with vigorous activity, and unlike regular bananas, I can keep some in my gym bag at all times to make sure I'm stocked up when I work out. The ingredients are simple (just banana!), it's organic, and they taste great! I always order a few bags because I inevitably end up chowing down on them at home too. Can't wait to try the coconut flavor!

- Cecil

Love Bananas? You will love this!

I love that this snacks come in a few different flavors! All are dehydrated banana and delicious. Seeing the discount with Thrive vs my local grocer, I had to buy these! The color and oxidization of the plain chips my not look right but trust that the taste is just fine! You may not want to put them out in a serving dish at parties though.

Eating a fresh banana is harder than eating a handful of these because of the water found in fresh fruit. With these, you get the vitamins and potassium minus the extra water weight. Downside: you may eat an entire bag at on time which can be an issue.

- Rose Walters


Such a great snack for the whole family. I cut them up and add them to my yogurt in the morning, bake with them, make trail mixes with them and just eat them plain. Great for the car, they don't melt and great to travel with. Another great tip you don't get those annoying fruit flies with them! 5 stars from me, if there were 6 stars I'd give them 6!

- Hella Organic

Good for toddlers

My husband and I think these taste disgusting, but it's a major hit with our 18-mo-old. And of course I'm happy to feed her a snack like this!

- Leah

Ordered by accident....but

When I first started scanning the web site and hit order instead of cancel....I got these bites and I loved them. Will be reordering them when I have the money!!

- Christopher and Joshua


Wonderfully chewy and just sweet enough. The little nuggets look like chocolate from the browning, but in a good way. Little banana scent is enticing.

- Sharla

Not very good

I'm sorry. I wanted to like these, but I just didn't. They were really gross. They smelled like a banana that had gone completely brown and tasted just like it. My kids wouldn't eat them either.

- Katie

Got these as a free item

Yummiest ordering more now simply AWESOME

- Roxanne

Surprisingly Delicious

From the look of it I didn't think I would like it. But they were surprisingly good! They are dark brown and chewy, but strangely satisfying. I liked them so much I ordered the coconut one. Can't wait!

- Ebby

Weird, but I can't stop eating them

We received a pack of these snacks for free with our last order. They're very strange... they have a tarry, chewy texture and a taste between dried banana and cooked plantain. I feel like I should hate them, but my daughter and I can't stop eating them.

- Christina


i go bananas for good banana stuffs. these were ok - but, they pale in comparison to the natural dried banana pieces from kleins naturals (which thrive should add *hint, hint)

- jambot


My go to snack! Saves me wasting so much money on bananas that just end up going bad.

- Corenia


Me and my kids absolutely love this delicious and healthy snack! Will be buying all the flavors

- OrganicMama

5 stars

Soooo good! Can't wait to try all the flavors

- MamaBear

Best Snack Ever!

I love Barnana and even more importantly our whole family does too. My kids favorite snack!! Deliciously wonderful and healthy.

- OrganicLady

Barnana-my favorite treat!

I discovered Barnana a year ago when it was sampled to me in a health food store. I instantly fell in love with it and was shocked it contained nothing but bananas. I eat it on long drives and take it on hikes. It's the best!

- RJ

Five stars healthy snacks!

These dehydrated banana snacks are incredibly yummy and energizing! The texture is chewy and moist, something I have never tasted before. I ordered one bag for each flavor and I prefer the original and coconut flavors which are less sweet. But definitely try the chocolate and peanut butter ones, the coating just makes them taste rich and creamy!~~~

- Xue Yang

Simple and Sweet

I love dried fruits, they are great for traveling, sticking a snack away at the office. They offer lots of fiber with the convenience of a snack food. That is why I love these Barnana! I have not found a dried banana before and these turned out great. The product is so unique and another perfect dried fruit for my snacks on the go. I will definitely buy these.

- James

Just like Banana Bread!!!

Delicious nuggets of bananas - the brown color makes sense because it tastes exactly like banana bread. Favorite snack ever.

- Börn

Holy Bananas Batman
