Apple Chips

on February 29, 2016

I’m sharing another healthy and very easy to make snack today. We’re trying to be more natural and chemical free in our family – even more than usual! I love to make these Apple Chips when I know I’m going to be home for an entire morning or afternoon. They take some time, but are so worth it in the end. When you go to buy dried fruit or chips in the store, they’re always made with sugar and other chemicals you can hardly pronounce. These are all natural, made with only fruit and cinnamon.

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Apple Chips

3-4 apples, or enough to fill two baking sheets

cinnamon

Slice the apples very thin – preferably on a mandolin.

Lay the slices out on a parchment lined baking sheet.

Sprinkle with cinnamon (you can also sprinkle with a bit of sugar or sugar-free sweetener, but I never do – I don’t think they need it).

Turn over and sprinkle the other side, if desired.

Bake at 200 degrees for 2 1/2 hours, turning over after one hour.

Turn off oven and let them sit in oven for 1/2 hour – this last half hour makes them even more crispy like chips.

I use a mandolin, because I could NEVER get the slices thin enough with a knife.

Parchment helps the slices not stick to the baking sheet. Experiment with different fruit like pears, and different spices like nutmeg or ginger. I try to fill two baking sheets with apple slices so I can do as many at a time as I can fit in the oven.

This is what the apple slices look like after the first hour.

After they finish baking, they really do look like chips!

These are delicious, and so good for you! It takes 3 hours of your time, but they’re so worth it. They’re crispy and a lot of fun. This would be great to do with kids – they get to make their own chips and then have the fun of eating them!
