Easy, homemade apple chips!

Apple Chips

My house smells amazing! That’s because I’ve been making apple chips for the last few hours. They are super easy and all you need is a mandolin (or very sharp knife) and some time! I made these while I was running around the house cleaning and doing laundry. You don’t need a food dehydrator to make these, I did these in my oven and here’s how…

Apple Chips

2 apples (I used royal gala)
Sprinkle of cinnamon
Sprinkle of brown sugar (optional)

Place your oven racks on the bottom shelves and preheat your oven to 225F. Core and slice your apples using a mandolin, these are very inexpensive and worth it! If you don’t have a mandolin you could slice the apple really thin, but they need to be paper thin. Just to give you an idea, I sliced one apple into about 45 slices.


Place them on 2 or 3 baking sheets lined with parchment paper, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar, then bake! Set the timer for one hour, flip them, sprinkle the other side with cinnamon/sugar and bake for another hour. Let them cool and store in an air tight container. Two apples yeilds four servings.

Nutritional Info:
40 calories for half an apple, which is about 20 slices.
