Who doesn’t like a sweet little snack made with a new kitchen gadget?? Baked Apple Chips
Baked Apple Chips
Sunday, I was excited to use my newest kitchen gadget – the Mandolin Slicer. I set out to make Baked Apple Chips – using tips I found online.
Holy YUM! ~ They turned out amazing. Pure Apples & simple ingredients you simply can’ t go wrong. Healthy, cheap, easy and addicting! Such a clean eating treat with ZERO fat. One thinly sliced apple goes a long way!
I’m dazzled at the beauty of the cross-section of an apple. So pretty, can you see Apple blossom flowers in the center?!
I used my new mandolin slicer to slice the apples on the thinnest setting. I sliced them whole, I did not core them. The seeds just naturally fell out during slicing. I sprinkled them with some cinnamon and sugar and baked them low and slow. The trick to making crispy chips is to slice the apples very thin. If the slices are too thick they will turn out mushy.
I really enjoyed making these; the recipe was super simple and they took a couple of otherwise pretty ordinary apples and spruce them up into something crave worthy. Beautiful star-shaped center where the apple seeds came from.
Crave-Worthy: Mandolin Baked Apple Chips
- 3 firm apples (I use Granny Smith, Pink Lady, or Honey Crisp)
- ground cinnamon
- granulated sugar
- Preheat oven to 200F degrees. Line two large baking sheets with silicone baking mats. Set aside.
- Wash and thinly slice the apples. Spread the apple slices onto the baking pans making 1 single layer. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
- Bake for 1 hour, flip the apples over, and bake for another 1-1.5 hours. Turn the oven off and keep the apples inside as the oven cools down for 1 hour. This will help them get crunchy. Store apple chips at room temperature in an airtight container.
So there you have it
