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


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


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!
