Baked Apple Chips | Delish D'Lites

Whenever I’m in the mood for something crunchy, my first instinct is to reach for a chip of some sort.  In an effort to make better snacking decisions, I decided to make some delish baked apple chips.  It’s a great way to use up those 15 pounds of apples you bought at the farm with the intentions of baking into all sorts of delish treats…they’re still sitting in the bag, right?  Right.

These baked apple chips are the perfect snack when you’re crazing something crunchy, but want something guilt free. In order to make thin, evenly sized chips,  I definitely recommend using a mandoline. That way, you get even slices that cook at the same time. My favorite apples to use are apples that have a firm texture, like Fuji, Pink Lady or Gala, or Macintosh. You don’t want to use mealy apples, like a Red Delicious.

ingredients3 semi sweet apples, such as Fuji, Pink Lady or Gala
Your spice(s) of choice (cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, apple pie spice, etc.)

directions

Preheat the oven to 225 degrees F.

Set your mandoline to the thinnest setting it has.  If you can do 1/16″, do it! Mine goes as low as 1/8″, that works too.

 Now, I implore you, do not operate a mandoline without the food guard or Kevlar gloves. These things will take the tips off your fingers, with no hesitation.  Believe me, I speak from experience!  Yeah, let’s not talk about that.

 Cut the bottom of your apple to expose the flesh.

Slice up your apples.  The great thing is, you don’t even have to core these!

Lay your apple rings onto the baking rack lined baking sheets in a single layer, and sprinkle with your spice of choice. Don’t go overboard, too much spice can turn bitter in the oven.  A gentle sprinkle is sufficient.

Bake these for 2-2 1/2 hours, until they’re dry and flexible.

 Pull them out of the oven and let them cool.  They’ll turn crisp after cooling.  Pop them into a ziptop bag and keep up to 2 weeks!
