I snack a lot. It’s a flaw. But if I must snack I try and make them healthy snacks like craisins, raisins, nuts and popcorn. Recently dried fruit has made it’s way into my diet and is here to stay.
I hate buying dried fruit when I can make it so I found a couple different recipes for apple chips, tried out several and came up with my own.
2 large apples (we get ours from the farmer’s market and they are huge! Perfect for making apple chips. Wash them thoroughly. I used Honeycrisps)
1 Tsp ground cinnamon (optional)
Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
Thinly slice the apple crosswise with a sharp knife. Leave the skin on. If you have a apple corer then core the apples first. If you don’t I just sliced and cut out the tougher middle part.
Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray lightly with canola oil.
Lay the apple slices out on the pan in a single layer, try not to overlap. You can use two pans inf you don’t have enough room (I did).
Using a sieve sprinkle the cinnamon evenly over the apples.
Bake on the bottom rack for about 2 1/2 hours or until they are dry and crisp (they’ll look dry and wrinkly when done).
Let the chips cool on the pans before you store them in a sealed container. Do not refrigerate.
