Who says you can't have your chips and eat them too? These nutritious apple chips are an easy, healthy new way to think about snack food.
  • apples
  • cinnamon
  1. Core apples if desired.
  2. Slice apples as thinly as possible (I use a mandolin).
  3. Place on a greased baking sheet (or use a silpat).
  4. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
  5. Bake at 225 degrees F for one hour.
  6. Flip apple slices over and bake for 1 hour more.
  7. Transfer to a cooling rack and let cool completely.
  8. Store in an airtight container.

  1. My mom used to make these! She used a little nutmeg too. We’d go to the mountains and come back with a trunk full of apples. To this day they are the only dried fruit I’ll eat, and only if they’re homemade.

    I love dried fruit but do not have a dehydrator and it is difficult to find the packaged kind without added sugar!

  15. I agree! No sugar needed! My daughter and I love these apple chips. Our favorite dried fruit, though, is dried mango. We can never leave Trader Joe’s without some.

  23. This is such a great idea and they look yummy. Didn’t think this was possible without an oven.
    My favourite dried fruits are pineapples and ginger but you can’t get those without sugar.

    Will try this recipe for sure. I have been looking for a good quality mandolin forever.

  24. I meant I dodnt think it was possible without a dehydrator. Sorry.

  25. Thanks so much for sharing!! Certainly trying this next month!!

  28. Dried pineapple is so addicting! I just wish it wasn’t so packed full of sugar. Dried apricots are also pretty amazing. They taste just like gummy candy. Mmm
