Baked Cinnamon Apple Chips

I got this recipe from Fifteen Spatulas. I just had to share it. It is so yummy. I have really been craving some apple crisp lately, so this is my "healthier" alternative. My favorite apple is the Jazz apple. I think they are originally advertised for kids because they are so small, but I love them. They are crisp and sweet. You will need more of those to make this, but if you are using a regular sized apple, 2-3 works. 

  • 2-3 apples
  • 1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp sugar

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 225 degrees F.

  • 2. Stir together the cinnamon and sugar to combine. Set aside.

  • 3. Decide whether or not to core your apples, then slice them thinly with a mandolin slicer. Line two sheet pans with parchment paper, and place the apple slices side by side on the parchment, in a single layer. Make sure not to overlap the apple slices or place them on top of each other, otherwise they won't crisp up. Sprinkle the apple slices with the cinnamon sugar, and note that if you sprinkle from high above, the cinnamon sugar will disperse more evenly.

  • 4. Bake the apple slices for 1 hour, then remove them from the oven and flip them over. The apples will be floppy, but they will crisp up later. Return the apple slices to the oven for another hour, then turn the oven off. Let the apple chips cool completely in the oven, this is when they will crisp up. Let them cool, then eat up!
