Baked Apple Chips
It’s time for the Secret Recipe Club (read more about SRC). This month I’m making a recipe from Trisha of My Hobbie Lobbie. Trisha had lots of stuff to choose from and it was so tempting to make her homemade mayonnaise. Did you know that most store bought mayo has genetically modified soybean oil as a primary ingredient? Soy is NASTY stuff that is bad for your body and your hormones and we favor healthy fats like butter, lard and olive oil. (Plus, most soy is genetically modified)
Trisha’s recipe for baked apple chips caught my attention. Remember back when I was just about the very last person ever to make kale chips? Well, now its time to take on baked apple chips.
Sounds kinda scary and complicated, doesn’t it? Making apple chips is surprisingly simple. All you need is an apple, and a bit of cinnamon if you’d like. Carefully core the apple, slice it in very thin rounds (or regularly shaped slices), rub on a sprinkle of cinnamon and then bake. That’s it. Easy as can be! Everybody loves these and I bet any little ones will be asking to have more “chips” for their lunch box.
In the mood for more apples? You’ll just love my coconut flour apple pancakes, applesauce cupcakes with maple buttercream, apple cinnamon muffins and baked apple cinnamon oatmeal.
- apples(any crisp variety)
- cinnamon, if desired
- Core apples carefully and preheat oven to 225F.
- Slice apples very thinly and as evenly as possible. A mandolin works perfect to provide even results or you can do it by hand.
- Sprinkle on a bit of cinnamon and rub around evenly on both sides of slices.
- Bake on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper for 30 minutes.
- Flip apple slices and continue to cook for 30-60 minutes. Slices are done when you feel the apple and it doesn't feel moist or squishy. Once removed from the oven the slices will get crispy.
What’s your favorite way to use apples? Have you baked apple chips?
