Apples: This apple chips recipe is perfect to make after you go apple picking. Such a great way to use them up! Any type of sweet and crisp apple will work. Some of my favorites are fuji, honey crisp, Jonathan and Melrose.
Cinnamon: I love the flavor that cinnamon adds! The spice from the cinnamon mixed with the sweetness from the sugar and maple syrup is such a delicious combination!
Sweetener: I like to add a few Tablespoons of sugar or maple syrup to give my apple chips a sweeter, more carmelized taste. If using maple syrup, make sure to use the real deal – no pancake syrup!
How to make apple chips in oven
I used to think you needed a dehydrator in order to make fruit chips. Nope! You can easily bake apple chips in the oven. Just follow the simple steps below.
Step 1: Lay apple slices on baking sheet
Preheat oven to 225º F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Slice apples and then lay out on top of baking sheets (make sure they don’t touch).
Step 2: Add sweetener and cinnamon
Mix together the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Then sprinkle the mixture over the tops of the apples. If using maple syrup, simply brush the tops.
Step 3: Bake apple chips in oven
Place both baking sheets in the prepared oven and bake for 1 1/2 hours. Flip apples over and continue baking for 1 more hour, until the apples are crispy. Let cool and store in an airtight container for up to 1 week. Enjoy!
You must give these baked apple chips a try! Hardly any prep and barely any work involved. So quick and easy!
