If you are looking for a recipe for Homemade Apple Chips, you have found the BEST one here! These crispy, oven-baked chips with a hint of cinnamon are nutritious and delicious! They make a fun apple snack for lunch boxes too!
2 large apples
2 tbsp. granulated sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
parchment paper (to line baking sheets)
Heat oven to 200° F.
Peel, core, and thinly slice the apples crosswise into slices about 1/8 inch thick, using a sharp paring knife.
Arrange the apple slices in a single layer on 2 parchment-lined rimmed baking sheets (cookie baking sheets).
In a small bowl, whisk together the sugar and the cinnamon.
Place the cinnamon and sugar mixture in a small sieve, and sprinkle over the sliced apples on the baking sheet.
Bake the apple slices in the top and bottom third of the oven, until the apples are dry and crisp. This will take approximately 2 hours.
Remove the baked apple slices from the oven and let the chips cool completely before transferring them to a sealed container for storage for up to a few days.
Makes about 2 cups of chips.
Did You Know?
Did you know that almost almost any type of apple variety, if stored correctly, will keep for three to four months (until February or March), or, in some cases, even longer?
How long apples can be stored depends, in part, on the thickness of the apple peel or skin. Apples, such as "Jonathans" are a variety of apple with a thicker peel, and therefore keep longer than, for example, "Delicious" apples which are generally apples with a thinner skin or peel.
How and where the apples will be stored for long periods of time are additional factors which will determine the success or failure of storing apples for a long time.
The main cause of apple spoilage is improper storage practices, causing one or more apples to begin to rot, and then coming into contact with more apples. As the saying goes, "one rotten apple will spoil the whole bunch".
