One of my favorite guilty pleasure snacks is potato chips with French onion dip. They are crunchy, salty, and oh so good. Unfortunately, they are not good for you! I saw a recipe for baked apple chips awhile back but I just now got around to making them. I was surprised how much I liked them. They are crunchy like potato chips, but what I really like is the cinnamon/brown sugar coating. It is almost like eating apple pie chips!
These are super easy to make, but they do take awhile. I recommend making a nice big batch on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Once you have the apples cut up and coated with brown sugar/cinnamon all you have to do is pop them in the oven for 2 hours; flipping once half way through. While they are cooking grab a book and relax! Eating plain apples would probably be the healthiest choice but these are much healthier than eating potato chips. If you like apple pie, then give these a try!
Baked Apple Chips
- 1-2 apples
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 12 tbsp cinnamon
- Preheat the oven to 225 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Using a mandoline, slice the apples as thinly as you can. Combine the brown sugar and cinnamon. Dip both sides of each apple slice into the brown sugar/cinnamon mix and lay flat on the baking sheet. Bake for 1 hour, flip over each apple, and bake 1 more hour.
