Apple Chips

Apple chips. What are they? Basically dehadrated apple slices. Oh, and sprinkled with cinnamon. And super, super yummy. They’re crisp and very yummy. Yummy.

They’re great eaten alone. They’re great eaten with dip. They’re great eaten on top of sort of gourmet dish. They’re Grrrrrrrrrrreat. No, they are NOT frosted flakes.

Some dips to try dipping them in: a cream cheese dip, pumpkin dip, lemon frosting? {Is that a question mark?!}, etc. HEY! How about lemon yougart?! Maybe try making a gourmet parfait with them . . . using yougart. Now these are all ideas. Don’t blame me if any of these don’t taste good. Just make sure to tell me so that I can take them off of my list of ideas to try. Thank you for your cooperation. I love you. ~ Janie

Whether dipping, topping, or munchin’ down plain, these babies must be made RIGHT NOW. RIGHT NOW. RIGHT NOW. The best part is that they’re super, SUPER easy to make. Here is the secret:

APPLE CHIPS

TWEAKED FROM THE ORIGINAL: Nom Nom Paleo Cookbook

Why You Go “Mmm…”:

2 Tbsp. oil (any kind: olive, canola, coconut, etc.)

4 apples, cored and thinly sliced (about 1/8 of an inch)

Cinnamon, for sprinkling

That’s it.

How To Consume Properly

1. Preheat your convention oven to 225 degrees. Grease a large baking sheet with oil.

2. Layer one single layer of apple slices onto the greased baking sheet and then sprinkle with cinnamon. Either dump it on or lightly mist, it’s up to your cinnamon-y preference.

3. Bake in the preheated oven for one hour. Flip the apple slices and bake for another hour. Allow to cool on the baking sheet before transfering to an air-tight container.

4. Eat before just a few days of making them . . . or hours.

  1. Great post, Janie! I LOVE dehydrating apples!! But instead of greasing the pan, I cover it with parchment paper. I also used a BBQ brush to coat the apple slices (which I sliced with our corer/slicer/peeler) in lemon juice. This not only keeps them from turning brown, but it also makes them taste better (in my opinion). Plain apples are great dipped in lemon juice, too! 🙂

    • Thanks, Gemma, for your suggestions! The foil is a great idea since the apples would still stick to the pan a bit. I love lemon so I’ll have to give the lemon juice coating a whirl!!!
