Cinnamon Baked Apple Chips Recipe

This cinnamon baked apple chips recipe is one of the tastiest and healthy snacks around. Thin slices of apples are dusted with cinnamon and crisply baked into a snack that you can feel good about.  Pack ’em in the lunch box and snack to your heart’s content!

Whether it’s extra garden bounty or a sale at the supermarket, dehydrating food is a budget-friendly way to stock up for later. You can use a food dehydrator, a low temperature oven, or natural sunshine to preserve natural healthfulness.
This apple chips recipe was made using the “low slow oven” method.

The first time I ever dehydrated food in my oven was when I made my own sun dried tomatoes. I love that recipe!

Because it takes a couple of hours to bake these up, this baked apple chips recipe is the perfect project for a rainy day.  In addition to having the house smell amazing from the cinnamon and apples baking, I think it’s awesome that no sugar is needed in this sweet treat.

These baked apple chips are pretty much the easiest healthy snack you can make in your oven.  Just thinly slice some apples, dust them with cinnamon, and bake on low until they’re dried and crispy like potato chips.

You can use any variety of apple you want, but the first time I made them, I used organic Envy apples. Just like the ones I used to make my apple pie ice cream bowls. By the way, have you seen that post?  That is a seriously awesome dessert!

Anyhoo, I love Envy apples because they don’t oxidize (turn brown) like some of the other varieties do.  The second time I made them, I used some gorgeous organic Cortland apples that I got in my weekly organic produce box. I used a mandoline to make my apple slices really thin.

Be super careful using a mandoline, though. They are freaking dangerous, especially when unnamed people (ME) ignore the handy dandy food guard that comes with it.  Do not, under any circumstances, avoid using the food guard!  No, no no…. well, unless you LIKE losing parts of fingers and having roaring blood and oozing scars, and ewwww… just use the guard, please.  πŸ™‚

Calories 9 kcal

Ingredients
  

  • 2 apples (your favorite variety - I used Envy apples)
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

Instructions
 

  • Set oven to 200 degrees F
  • Line a stoneware or similar rimmed, heavy bottomed sheet pan with parchment paper
  • Use the smallest setting on a mandoline or a knife to very carefully cut paper thin slices of apple (about 1/16th of an inch). Remove and discard any seeds from the center of each slice, then arrange slices in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle slices liberally with the cinnamon.
  • Bake for 90 minutes, then flip each slice and bake for another 60-90 minutes, or until the chips are crispy and no longer soft.
  • If placed into an airtight container, the chips will stay good for 4-5 days, but I doubt that they'll last that long!
