I have a new obsession: fruit and veggie chips. Seriously, talk about an easy, healthy, and ultra tasty snack! I always thought that making chips took a lot of time and work, but I am here to admit, that I was sorely wrong.
We have lots of apples. So many, in fact, that I’ve been feeling like I am going to turn into an apple pretty soon. ‘Tis the season! So, a quick and easy solution to use up some apples,would of course be….APPLE CHIPS!
Thin, crispy, crunchy, tart, spicy, sweet. Mmmm they awaken the taste buds!
Want to enjoy this incredible autumn snack? Here’s how to make them!
Baked Apple Chips
Makes about 6 cups
What You’ll Need:
+ 3 large whole apples
+ 4 Tablespoons cinnamon
+ 4 Tablespoons sugar
Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F. If you have a mandolin, it will be a life saver and you will make these in half the time. If not, try to slice them as thin as possible.
You can core them, but I like the looks of the star center, and it’s less prep work. Cut the apple in half horizontally. Remove seeds out of core. Slice the apples as thin as possible, while still keeping them in a full circular shape.
Lay them on a single layer on a nonstick baking sheet (or like it with parchment). Sprinkle with half the cinnamon and half the sugar. Place in the oven for roughly 40 minutes. It really depends on thickness, but they’re ready to flip when the edges are wavy and they are slightly crisp. Flip, sprinkle with remaining cinnamon sugar, and place back in the oven for an additional 30-40 minutes. They should be crisp, but it’s ok if they’re slightly soft. Shut the oven off, and let them sit for another 30 minutes. This allows any extra moisture in the chips to be pulled out, leaving a perfectly crisp chip.
Taa-Daa! Bet ya can’t eat just one! (But this time, you don’t have to feel guilty about it).
