Fall is in full swing and pumpkin recipes are falling right and left onto your Pinterest board, but wait what about apples?! I feel apples do not get enough attention in the fall because they are so readily available to the public all year long. Don’t get me wrong I love my pumpkin recipes, but I adore seasonal fresh, crisp apples. Nothing makes your house smell like fall more than warm apple chips toasting in the oven. Well, today I have an apple chip recipe for you that will not bust your buttons before the holidays. Apple Chips are an easy, healthy snack option for the whole family. I am speaking from experience when I say these apple chips do not stay around long . They are quite delicious and very addicting!
- 3 medium apples, unpeeled
- sugar, to taste
- cinnamon, to taste
- Preheat oven to 225 degrees.
- Slice apples on a mandoline slicer for best results. (see notes below)
- Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Evenly line apple slices on baking sheet.
- Lightly dust apple slices with cinnamon and sugar.
- Bake for 2- 2 1/2 hours, turning apple slices half way through. (see notes below)
I use an inexpensive OXO Good Grips Hand-Held Mandoline Slicer
(affiliate link) that has 3 settings. I recommend slicing apples on the number 2 setting for crisp apple chips. I found that my lowest setting made the apple slices too thin. For a more chewy apple chip I recommend slicing the apples on the third setting. You may core your apples, but I choose not too. In my opinion I think the center star shape is very attractive and natural looking. Although, I do remove the seeds and remove the centers as needed. No worries, some apple slices may not be perfect. The apples chips maybe slightly moist when first taken out of the oven, but will crisp as they cool. Leave apple chips on baking sheet as they cool. Please double the recipe as needed :)
