Apple Chips

 

I am a big snacker.

I mean, who isn’t?

Unfortunately most snacks are not healthy, especially those that are sweet or crunchy.  Well, I have the perfect healthy snack that is both sweet and crunchy.

Apple chips!

These delicious cuties are the perfect answer to your sweet tooth and won’t add any inches to your waist.

Plus, with fall in full swing you’ll be able to use the sweetest, freshest apples of the year.

My only complaint about them is that they do take a long time to make.

Two hours.

Yeah, I know.  But, all that time they are just sitting in the oven.  You can go on with your daily activities while they crisp away.

And now to try out my new recipe maker ( you can print it right off my blog post!):

Apple Chips

Serves 1
Prep time 5 minutes
Cook time 2 hours
Total time 2 hours, 5 minutes
Dietary Diabetic, Gluten Free, Vegan, Vegetarian
Meal type Snack
Misc Child Friendly

Ingredients

  • 1 Large apple (Fuji, gala, or granny smith)
  • mandolin

Directions

Step 1
Preheat oven to 225 degrees. Wash and core (if desired) your apple. You don't have to core the apple (see picture of my chips) but can if that's the look you prefer.
Step 2
Using a mandolin, thinly slice the apple (if you don't have a mandolin you could use a very sharp knife, but the slices need to be very thin)
Step 3
Place apple slices on a parchment paper lined baking sheet (slices from the entire apple will take up two baking sheets)
Step 4
Sprinkle with a dash of cinnamon (if desired)
Step 5
Place your baking trays in the oven and bake for one hour. After one hour flip the chips over and then continue cooking for another hour.
Step 6
After cooking time is up, turn off the oven and allow the chips to cool inside the oven. Enjoy your guilt free chips!

  1. Sarah, I was just going to look for a recipe to make apple chips when I saw your post. I buy apple chips at the store, and I like them, but I wanted to make my own so I know what is going in them. We have so many food allergies at our house. Thanks so much for the post, I’m going to make some this afternoon!

  2. These are awesome looking! I’ve been snacking much more lately, mostly because I have been at home and too busy to remember lunch :) I would love it if you could share this on my weekly party!!

  3. Just wanted to let you know I’m featuring this deliciousness on this week’s Block Party! Thanks for linking up :)

  4. I have done these yummy treats in the dyhydrator I normally use for herbs. Tomaintain the whiter-apple-color, I often run the slices through a quick bath mixture of lemon juice with a bit of water prior to dehydrating.
