Healthy Snacking: Apple Chips

apple chips

Do you get the munchies?  Are you looking for healthy after school snacks? This healthy snack, apple chips, is the perfect way to serve up fruit.

Everyone in my house gets the munchies. Is it the same at your house? I get the munchies a lot especially if I skip a meal. Have I told you I have the metabolism of 60-year-old woman? With that said snacking on sweets and other unhealthy treats is really not a good choice for me.  On the other hand my tall, lean and handsome husband can eat a whole tub of butter and frosting and not put on a single pound. No, I am not bitter about that.

Apple Chips

Ingredients:

2 Thinly sliced apples

1/2 tsp of cinnamon

1/2 tbl of sugar

Directions:

Use a mandolin slicer, for easy thin slicing.

Mix cinnamon and sugar. Place apples

on pan. Don’t overlap apples. Sprinkle

apples with sugar.

Bake for 1 hour at 200 degrees. Take

apples out, flip,  and bake for

another 45 minutes.

Note: If you’re slices are really thin you need to keep an eye on them b/c they will easily burn. I learned this the hard way. Our stove is gas so it was really hard to regulate the temperature and had to keep an eye on the temp. to prevent it from going past 200 degrees.

      Yes, I am hoping it works out for you. They are really easy the only thing is to make sure if your slices are thin to watch them closely.

    I love apple chips, but I’ve never made them myself! What kind of apples do you think would work the best for these?

    These are my favorite! Reminds me of the fall when I was a child.

      I love Fall foods all year long, lol. It’s good it only comes once a year b/c most of my favorites are sweets.

    These look great! I look forward to trying them out. Have you ever done them without sugar? Also, how long will they keep? Do you keep them in an air tight container?

      Hi Dessi,

      I think they would be just fine without sugar. I’ve never had to keep mine for more than overnight, so I just placed them in a ziplock bag and they were fine. Enjoy!
