Homemade Apple Chips

I’m always looking for healthy easy snacks and this one is as good as it gets.  These sweet and salty Apple Chips are all natural and so simple! 

This recipe is so easy!  All you need is:
1.  Salt to taste after baking.
2.   Apples.  Any kind will work, but I prefer Gala.
You will also need a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper for baking.


Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees.  Next, simply wash and thinly slice your apples.  You want them to be as thin as you can get them.  Using a mandolin or food processor might help with this process, but I prefer to simply slice them using a knife…I’m not a fan of appliances :).

 

 

Place apple slices on to a parchment paper cookie sheet.  If you do not have parchment paper, spray your cookie sheet with non-stick spray.  Put cookie sheet into the 200 degree oven for one hour.  Check the apples halfway through and flip them if necessary. 

 

 

After apples are cooked, they will be brownish and dry-looking, remove them from the oven and sprinkle lightly with salt on both sides.  Allow to cool for 30-45 minutes and enjoy!  You can store these in an airtight container or ziplock bag for up to five days, but they are so good I doubt they will last that long in your cupboard.

 

 

I hope you enjoy these amazing and healthy Apple Chips!  They are crispy just like a chip without the additives and guilt :).

The finished product!

    Beautiful looking snack. Good for you too. Will have to make some now that apple season is in.
    These apple slices would be good cut up in a salad.
