Making your own Homemade Apple Chips is so easy. This perfect snack has no preservatives, no additives and is sugarfree! The kids will love these crisp healthy snacks.
I used apples from my very own apple tree. They are similar in taste to a McIntosh apple, but any type of apple will work. It is probably best to use a sweeter apple so the chips aren’t too sour. The natural sweetness of the apple is all you need so I don’t add any type of sugar to my chips. Just a sprinkle of cinnamon to this super tasty treat. If your sweet tooth really craves it, you could add a sprinkle of sugar or stevia.
The key to making crisp Homemade Apple Chips is to slice them very thin. I use my Pampered Chef Simple Slicer on 1/16th slice setting to make perfect slices that crisp up nicely.
Place apple slices on parchment lined baking sheet. It is important to line the baking sheet with parchment paper! I tried doing it without parchment paper and the apples stuck to the pan and never crisped up properly. Lightly sprinkle with a bit a cinnamon if you like.
Apple are baked in 200º F oven for about 2 hours, then immediately transfer them to a cooling rack.
Enjoy this fantastic healthy snack, that is so easy to make. Make lots as they go fast!
