Baked Apple Chips

I have a love/hate relationship with baked apple chips. I love to eat them. I hate to make them because I want to eat them now!!! Really though, it's often really hard to wait for them to be done. Last night I decided I had to have apple chips. Tonight we have no apple chips left in our house. Anywhere. Trust me, I've checked a few times.

All you really need to make some basic apple chips are....wait for it....apples! Surprised? =] Oh, and a baking sheet and an oven. If you have a mandolin to slice your apples with, that will help a lot. But no worries if you don't, you'll just want a small sharp knife.

Preheat your oven to 200 degrees

Grab however many apples you want. One? Twenty? It's up to you. Slice them thinly, about 1/8".

Line your baking sheet with parchment paper and place the apples on it in a single layer insuring that they don't overlap.

If you just want plain apple chips, then skip over the next part and proceed to baking them.

Or, you can make cinnamon/sugar chips! You can make your own mixtures using just cinnamon, just sugar (granulated or powdered), or a mixture of the two. I like to use powdered sugar and cinnamon. Mix about 2 Tbl powdered sugar with 1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon and shake it over the top of your apples. You might need more or less depending on how many apples you use. I usually do a couple at a time. 

Once you're apples are ready, put them in the oven. Bake them for one hour and then pull them out and carefully turn them over. If you're doing the sugar mixture, I usually add a little to the other side at this point. Put them back into the oven and back approximately another hour. The apples should be dried out, but not burnt. Pull out and enjoy...I never give them a chance to cool but start eating them right away! :)


  1. These look great. I've never made apple chips, so I definitely need to try these! Thanks for the recipe! These would be awesome on top of a salad.

    1. Thanks Emily! They're great on anything! Although some days I'm much too lazy to wait two hours for them. =]


I love getting love! And I can't wait to hear what you have to say, bring it on!! And many thanks for taking your time to visit! :)
