Baked Apple Chips

Well hello again! I know it has been a while and I want to thank you for not forgetting about me entirely. You didn't forget about me did you? I won't hold it against you if you did, it has been more days than I can count on both my hands.

Baked Apple Chips

So to make up for my disappearing act I decided to bake you some crispy apple chips. Seriously, these things are so good. They almost taste like they should be bad for you but I swear to you they're not. They're made up entirely of apples tossed with just a little lemon juice and cinnamon Yep, that's it. Don't you love it when food tastes good, is easy to make AND is actually healthy for you too? Makes me want to do a 1990's style fist pump while yelling, “SCORE!”

Description

These Crispy Apple Chips taste like a delicious treat but are still super healthy for you. This easy to make recipe will have you baking in no time.


Scale

Ingredients

  • Apples
  • A squeeze of fresh lemon juice
  • A pinch of cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 225 degrees. Line baking sheet (or two) with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  2. Cut the apples crosswise into thin rounds. Don't worry about removing the seeds, they'll shrivel up and fall out as they cook.
  3. Toss the apple slices in a little fresh squeezed lemon juice. Sprinkle a little cinnamon over top and toss to coat.
  4. Lay the apples in a single layer on the parchment covered baking sheet. It is ok if they overlap just a little bit.
  5. Bake for 1 hour then remove them from the oven. Carefully (they'll be hot!) flip over apple chips. Return them to the oven and bake for about 1 more hour.
  6. Watch carefully near the end so they do not burn.
  7. Remove the apple chips from the oven and let cook completely. Store in a sealed container.

Notes

I highly recommend you use fresh squeezed lemon juice. The stuff in the squeeze bottles has a funny flavour and will be noticeable in this recipe. I've left the quantities out on purpose. For this recipe you can easily make as many or as few as you would like.
