Baked Apple Chips

Baked Apple Chips

Apples are one of my girls’ favorite fruits to eat. They eat apple slices almost everyday so as I’ve been thinking about fall recipes, homemade apple chips seemed like a must!

Making homemade apple chips is really easy, but it does take almost 4 hours from start to finish, so plan ahead! This is a great recipe to make on the weekends when you will be home for a while. The apples bake for about 2 1/2 hours and then it helps to let them sit in the oven for 1 more hour after you turn the heat off as it helps them crisp up best, in my experience.

I just sprinkled these with some cinnamon! You can add more cinnamon or other spices if desired. You can also sprinkle some sugar on top if you want a sweeter apple chip.

I have to admit that I suffered some trauma when making these apple chips. It was the mandoline. I literally sliced a huge chunk of my pinky finger. I can’t even describe how awful it was! I had the safety thing on top, but it still slipped.

Truth be told, I HATE using a mandoline! But, I’d be lying if I said having one isn’t preferred for slicing your apple chips. I tried slicing some by hand and the ones sliced with the mandoline got much crispier when baking, so if you have a mandoline you feel comfortable using, I recommend it.

Easy Baked Apple Chips couldn't be simpler! Made with fresh sliced apples and a touch of cinnamon!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 3 hours
Total Time 3 hours 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 sweet apples (like honeycrisp or jazz apples)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (or to taste)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. Line one-two large baking sheets with parchment or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.
  2. If desired, use an apple corer to remove cores. With a sharp knife or mandoline, slice apples to about 1/8-inch thickness. Arrange in a single layer on the baking sheets. Sprinkle the cinnamon evenly on top of the apple slices.
  3. Bake for 1 hour. Flip the apple slices (and, if using two racks, swap the pans). Continue baking for 1 1/2 more hours (see note). Turn off the oven and let the apple chips sit in the oven for 1 more hour. Remove from the oven and enjoy!

Notes

Exact baking time may vary depending on the type of apple that you use. I used honeycrisp apples. You can test crispiness after two hours of baking by removing one apple chip, let sit for a few minutes on counter. If it gets crispy and seems done, turn off oven earlier, otherwise bake additional 30 minutes.
