Cinnamon Apple Chips

These beautiful, rippled chips are easy and impressive to make at home. You just need a simple benriner slicer to ensure you get ultra thin slices (feel free to try with a knife, but it could be difficul, not to mention dangerous, cutting through the core) and a little time parked at home for one delicious, healthy snack!Cinnamon Apple Chips | An irresistible 3-ingredient snack

Dehydrated Apple Slices vs Apple Chips

I was expecting crisp chips when I first made this recipe. You know, like fragile potato chips that crumble with any pressure. But in this case, the final result was a little chewy, more like thin dehydrated apples than true apple chips. No matter what you call these, they were darn tasty!

After sampling a few of these cinnamon apple chips, I knew I’d be sharing them with my friends. A group of my knitting friends were coming over for coffee, chatting and, of course, knitting. When I revealed I’d made these, one friend replied that she was going to ask where I bought them! I gave her the rundown on preparation, including the kind of apples I used and she was going to make a batch that day.

Used to Make This Recipe:

Cinnamon Apple Chips


Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 2 1/2 hours
Total Time 20 mins


Ingredients

  • 4 apples (I used 2 Honeycrisp and 2 Pink Lady apples)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Line 2-3 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

Using a benriner or mandolin, slice apples into very thin (1/16th inch or so) slices, though the core to make round slices. Discard the ends.

Add the slices to a large bowl and toss with the cinnamon and sugar. I used my fingers to rub a very small amount of the sugar mixture onto each slice, then rubbed the slices together to distribute evenly.

Place slices on the prepared baking sheets in one layer, popping out any seeds during the process.

Bake for 1 1/2 hours, then remove from the oven and flip each slice over (I found using my fingers was easier and quicker than using a spatula.

Bake for another hour, then turn off the oven and leave sheets in the oven over night or until oven cools.

Store in an airtight container. These are a cross between dried fruit and chips as they don't get crispy like potato chips.  To "re-crisp" preheat the oven to 200 degrees and place the apple chips in a single layer on a baking sheet. Turn off the oven and let the chips stay in the oven a few hours or overnight.
