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.  🙂

Baked Cinnamon Apple Chips Recipe

Prep Time 10 min Cook Time 2 hr Serves 2-3

Thinly sliced apples are dusted with cinnamon and baked until crispy and sweet. Full of fiber, no added sugar, and they're even vegan and gluten free!

Ingredients

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

Directions

  1. Set oven to 200 degrees F
  2. Line a stoneware or similar rimmed, heavy bottomed sheet pan with parchment paper
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. If placed into an airtight container, the chips will stay good for 4-5 days, but I doubt that they'll last that long!

    I have bought these in a bag and loved them but yours look much more wonderful and are probably much healthier too, Becca. I wish I could get those Envy apples!

      Chef Becca September 25, 2014 (9:39 am)

      Thanks, Stacy! I can’t even tell you how good Envy apples are. I know you’re half way across the world, but if we can get fruit from New Zealand in the States, I would be that you can get it in Dubai! Just ask the produce manager where you shop for groceries. They’re SO tasty!

    What a quick and easy snack!! I need to stay far away from a mandolin – I sure hope blood isn’t roaring out of your fingers and your scars have stopped oozing too – the stuff you endure to put good, healthy and tasty snacks in our bellies is mind boggling 🙂

      Chef Becca September 25, 2014 (9:40 am)

      Haha! The blood stopped gushing a couple of weeks ago, Shashi, but that nasty scar is gonna be with me for a while. Mandolines are a necessary evil… I think they just need to be sold with a cutting glove! 🙂

    These apples look awesome, Becca! I’ve never made chips of any sort at home…I always assumed I needed a dehydrator. Looks like I was wrong…thanks for the inspiration!

    Beautiful photo in so many ways. (Watch out Saveur and Bon Appetit!) I don’t know that I’ve ever craved apple chips … until now. Here’s the deal with using a mandolin — it’s one of those contraptions that is usually better, the more you spend on it. But a better contraption also means a sharper blade. I tend not to use the guard, but that is my version of sky-diving or swimming with sharks. 😉

      Chef Becca September 22, 2014 (7:53 pm)

      What a sweet compliment… thank you so much, Adam. Culinary sky-diving with a mandoline? Haha! I think I’ll stick to deep frying in a 3-inch deep skillet and call it a day.

    I have always wanted to make apple chips! Yours look generously sprinkled with cinnamon, which makes them the BEST in my book! I don’t know why it has taken me so long! Pinned!

      When it comes to cinnamon in my life, it’s go big or go home, Lindsey! I don’t know why I’m always so late to the recipe bandwagon party, but I’m SO glad I finally made these apple chips!
