It’s easy to make your own chips from apples.
Today I’m going to share one of the easiest and good for you snacks: apple chips!
With the start of a new school year and fall quickly approaching, I’m ready to start turning on the oven and baking with apples. Apple pies, fritters and crisps are some of my favorites, but today I really want to give you a snack to munch on throughout the day.
Typically when I make apple chips I only use apples. Yes, just one ingredient is all you need! But sometimes on colder fall days, I need a little cinnamon and sugar in my life and I’ll add a generous sprinkle to each apple slice.
It’s SO good. I will warn you though: Eating the entire batch in one sitting is not hard. The good thing is, these chips are so good for you, they’re guilt free!
Okay, so grab your apples.
Preheat the oven to 200ºF. Line two baking sheets with a silpat or parchment paper.
Wash your apples, dry them, and then thinly slice each. Spread the apple slices in a layer on the prepared baking sheets. If desired, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
Bake for 1 hour and then flip the slices over. Return to the oven and continue baking another 1 to 2 hours. If your apples aren’t crisp by this time, turn the oven off and leave the apples in the oven to cool for about an hour. If you want a little chew to your apples, remove them before they get too crisp. I personally like mine crunchy!
Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
One more thing: If some of your apple slices are thicker than others, the thick ones may not get as crisp.
