Baked Apple Chips

I struck gold with this one. These are healthy, tasty and so very addictive you can't stop munching on them. I decided to participate in "Eating The Alphabet Series" hosted by Brenda of Meal Planning Magic. Its a meatless event and I think its a fun way to include more veggies and fruits in our meals. If you'd like to join in, you can find the details and sign up here. This month its we're working with A or B. I'd seen these apple chips a long time ago and this was the perfect opportunity to try them. With minimal prep work and a little patience you can have yourself a little box of these yummies.


Baked Apple Chips
Adapted from: Half Squeezed Lemon


2 apple, any crisp and slightly tart variety
1 tbsp granulated sugar
1 tsp cinnamon powder
A pinch of salt

Wash the apples thoroughly and slice thinly. (If your slices are not thin, they won't crisp up.) Discard both ends of the apple and the seeds.

Mix the sugar, cinnamon and salt thoroughly and sprinkle on the sliced apples.

Toss well to make sure that there's some of that sweet cinnamon goodness on all the slices.

Place the slices in a single layer on a parchment lined baking sheet, making sure that there is no overlap.

Bake at 100ºC for about 30 minutes. Flip the slices over and bake for another 30-60 minutes or till they crisp up. Keep a watch, you don't want these to burn.

Let them cool down and get ready to enjoy them.They will continue to crisp up as they cool.

  4. Bet these are a lot healthier than the commercially made ones I can buy at the grocery store! I think I'll pin this recipe for next autumn when the apple crop is in :)
