Crispy Apple Chips

Homemade crispy apple chips are a remarkably delicious snack!

From the author, Honor Fabun: Autumn is upon us, and I can’t get enough! Last week I took a trip to the apple orchards and came home with 60 pounds of fruit. This crispy apple chips recipe is one fun way to enjoy them.

From Plant-Based on a Budget: If you’re curious about stepping up your healthy homemade snacks game, these Crispy Apple Chips should be at the top of your list. Learning how to make these is a great way to save some money, reduce your processed snack consumption and make your house smell like a (cinnamony) heaven.

A mandolin slicer works great for achieving paper-thin, uniform slices. However, if you don’t have one (I don’t) a sharp knife and some patience works just fine.

Give these crispy apple chips a try! They are super budget-friendly and easy to make.

  • Preheat the oven to 225 degrees F (107 degrees C). Slice apples into very thin rings. I leave the core in because I think it makes a prettier apple chip, but you can remove it if you like.
  • Place the apple rings on a lined baking sheet in a single layer.
  • Mix together sugar and spices in a small bowl.
  • Sprinkle the sugar-spice mixture over the apple rings.
  • Place the baking sheet in the oven. Baking time will depend on the thickness and water content of your apple slices. They should be done in 1 ½ to 2 hours. You’ll know they’re finished when they’re crisp. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes & Tips

  • Thin slices are best! If you slice the apples more than ⅛ inch thick, they will still be delicious, but they won’t be as crisp.
  • Enjoy these sweet apple chips as a chopped on top of salads, on top of oatmeal, and, of course, right out of the container!

APPLE CHIPS

Apple chips are light, crispy, easy to make, and surprisingly full of flavor! Turn them into a sweet snack with a dash of cinnamon, or crumble them into bits as a topping for a delicious fall salad.

As the seasons change, so do my cravings for a new snack. Summer was filled with sweet berries and juicy peaches. And now it’s time to dive into autumn’s fruity harvest. Fall fruits like cranberries and figs can be found in my cranberry almond biscotti or blueberry chia pudding with figs.

But today, we’re transforming fresh fall apples into delicious baked apple chips. Although this recipe has to be slow cooked for 2 hours, it only takes 10 minutes to prep and doesn’t require a dehydrator. Trust me, the wait will be worth it when you take the first crunchy bite.

WHAT ARE THE BEST TYPES OF APPLES TO DRY?

With the large variety of apples out there, it can be difficult to figure out which ones provide the best taste and texture. But it all really comes down to if you like more of a sweet or tart flavor.

If you’re looking for more of a sweet flavor, gala, fuji, and honeycrisp apples are great. If you’re more of a tart person, then you’ll want to go for gavenstein, pink lady, cortland, or empire apples.

ARE APPLE CHIPS HEALTHY?

I will admit these apple chips are addictive. But are they bad for you? Not necessarily. Unlike store-bought alternatives, this recipe uses no additional sugar, and the chips are baked instead of deep fried. Not to mention, apples are a great source of fiber and promotes a healthy digestive system.

TIPS ON HOW TO MAKE YOUR APPLE CHIPS CRISPY

When it comes to chips, it’s all about the crunch. So how do you make your apple chips extra crispy? Take a look at a few tips I have below.

  • Cut the apples as thinly and evenly as possible. I recommend using a mandoline to slice the apples. But, you can also use a spiralizer with the flat blade or simply with a knife.
  • Do not speed up the baking process or turn up the temperature. Your goal is to slowly reduce the moisture in these apples. If you turn up the heat and bake it in a shorter amount of time, your apples will most likely be soft and even a bit mushy. Trust the slow process and you will have crispy bits in no time.
  • After it’s done baking, let your apples cool in the oven for about 30 minutes. This will be sure to take out the last bit of moisture left in your apples and maximize the crispiness.

HOW LONG DO BAKED APPLE CHIPS LAST

While apple chips are best eaten straight out of the oven, you might want to save some for the week. Leftovers should be sealed in a an airtight container right away and can be stored for up to one week. Just make sure to keep your chips out of humidity to maintain the freshness and crispiness.

HOW TO MAKE BAKED APPLE CHIPS

  1. Slice the apples 1/8 inches thick using a mandoline on the thinnest setting. Make sure to slice from the bottom of the apple.
  2. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or a silpat mat and arrange the apple slices in a single layer on top. Feel free to place the apples close to each other as they will get smaller while baking.
  3. Sprinkle cinnamon on both sides of the apple and bake for one hour. The cinnamon or additional sugar is optional, but I recommend giving your apples a little cinnamon love for extra flavor.
  4. Flip the apple slices while they are still warm and bake for 1 more hour, or until the pieces are fully dry and crispy.
  5. Let them cool in the oven for 30 minutes to finish off the dehydration process.
  6. Test the apple chips by letting them sit on the sheet pan for about 5 minutes. If they taste crispy enough, they are ready. If not, place them back in the oven for 15 more minutes.
