Homemade apple chips recipe on iheartnaptime.com ...yum! Perfect for fall! by Jen Nikolaus of Yummy Healthy Easy

Hi again, friends! Can you believe it’s already September? Where did the summer go?! We’re already knee-deep in school, homework, football practices, piano lessons, etc.

Even though it’s September, it’s still been crazy hot around here. What has your weather been like? I’m feeling ready for fall to decide to show up. I’m ready for boots, sweaters, pumpkin muffins, hot chocolate, and apple recipes. We love apples around here. I buy several pounds every week just for my boys to snack on or throw into their lunch boxes.

But, apples can get a bit boring. It’s fun to change things up a bit and help my boys out by giving them something new to take in their lunch boxes.

How do you spice apples up? Apple chips!!!

These are amazing. I used to think you needed a dehydrator in order to make fruit chips. Nope!

You just have to slowly cook them in the oven. Hardly any prep and barely any work involved. Oh my word, you guys. When you make these, your house will smell AWESOME. It’s like inviting fall into your home!

Not to mention the sweet and crispy taste of these yummy chips. They have so much flavor packed into each chip, you’ll feel guilty eating them because they taste like dessert. But they’re healthy! The perfect snack to grab on the go, throw into lunch boxes or just to snack on while watching tv.

Hello, fall!

Apple Chips

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 2 hours 30 minutes

Total Time: 2 hours 40 minutes

Ingredients:

2-3 apples, thinly sliced (I used Fuji)
4 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
real maple syrup (not pancake syrup)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 225º F. Lay out the apple slices on two parchment lined baking sheets.
Mix together the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. On one sheet of apples, sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar over the tops of the apples. On the other baking sheet of apples, spread the tops with maple syrup. (Can also double cinnamon and sugar and skip maple syrup or use only maple syrup - your preference!) 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. Enjoy!
