Spiced Apple Chips

These spiced apple chips are a far and delicious cry from the subpar grocery store variety.

Crispy and sweet, with no added sugar and just a sprinkling of cinnamon and nutmeg, they make a perfect snack to satisfy midday (and late night) cravings.
Simple and delicious. And who can resist that adorable little star in the middle?


Spiced Apple Chips

Ingredients:
Apples. Any number of any variety. (You can't really mess this part up.)
A dash of cinnamon
A pinch of nutmeg

Directions:
Preheat oven to 220F, and line two large baking pans with parchment paper.

Using a knife or a mandolin, slice apples as thin as possible. Lay them side by side on a baking sheet, being careful not to overlap, lest you want conjoined chips.

Gently and carefully sprinkle a thin coating of cinnamon on the chips, and follow with a light dusting of nutmeg.

Bake for one hour, flip the slices, and bake for one hour more. Place on a wire cooling rack. Chips will crisp up as they cool.

  1. Apple chips are always my number one purchase at farmer's markets. Now I don't have to wander out to the winter market when it's chilly out to get my fix. Thanks!

    2. I would use a dehydrator, since I have one. You can dehydrate just about anything!

    3. I prefer the oven-baked version than the dehydrator. I've done both version and you really get a cispy chip in 2 hrs. I've done 16 hrs. In a dehydrator and still it was firm, but not crispy like a chip.

    4. I have done both dehydratotr method & oven method. I prefer the oven method because the apple chipd cane out crispy like a chip and the fact that it the tine to bake is 2 hours is even better.

    1. I've no idea of the specifics, sorry! I'm sure there's websites that can calculator it for you, but I don't frequent diet and weightloss sites.

    2. One apples' worth of apple slices is not going to have more calories than one apple (80-100 calories), because the cinnamon and nutmeg have virtually no calories...

  7. It doesn't look like you coded the apple? And how did you get the slices so thin? I tried making apple chips once and that was the hardest part leading to chewy apples in the end...please, do share your apple slicing process :)

    1. I used a mandoline! It makes life so much easier. I don't use it that often, but when I do I'm always so thankful I made the purchase.

  8. What kind of apples did you use? Or what would be the best apple to use?

  9. Wonderful! And these are so overpriced in the stores. My favorite salad uses these and now I'll always have exactly what I want! Thank you for sharing! I too, like the addition of nutmeg for extra flavor, although I can never get enough cinnamon ;)
