Apple chips

unnamed (3)

Sweet, simple, and healthy, these homemade apple chips have become a fall staple. 

It’s hard to believe that fall is finally here. Pass on the potato chips and instead try this easy and healthy idea: apple chips. Sure, you can buy apple chips at the supermarket, but if you look at the ingredients they are full of oils and preservatives. This at-home recipe is simple enough that the kids can help (after you do the slicing). Feel free to use any type of apple, or go ahead and try it with some pears. I hope you enjoy. 


  • 2 Granny Smith apples, sliced thin
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon cane sugar


Preheat oven to 200 F degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Wash and thinly slice apples (use a mandolin if you have one) and place them in a large bowl. Next, sprinkle cinnamon and sugar over apples. Toss ingredients together.

Spread the apple slices on to the parchment. Bake for 1 hour, then flip and bake for another 1 hour to 1 ½ hours.

When done, let apples sit in the oven with the heat turned off for about an hour. Remove from oven and place in air-tight container.
