Sometimes you just need some cinnamon baked apple chips in your life. These are so easy to make, they just take a little bit of time. So recommend doing this in the evening where they can sit over night. Here we go:
- Prep: 15 minutes
- Cook: 2 hours
- Cooling: 2-4 hours or overnight
- Total time: 2 hours and 15 minutes with additional cooling time
- Preheat oven to 220 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Line a cookie sheet with either foil or parchment paper.
- Slice the apples as thin as you can using a knife. Or you can you use a mandolin.
- Once sliced, place the apples on the covered cookie sheet in a single layer.
- Sprinkle both cinnamon and sugar (or sweetener if you prefer) on all the apples. Flip them over and do the same to the other side.
- Place in the 220 degree oven and bake for 1 hour.
- Remove from oven. Flip the apples.
- Reduce the heat to 170 degrees Fahrenheit and bake for another hour.
- Turn the heat off and just leave the apples in the oven for another 2-4 hours or overnight.
Normally when I make these, I only use 1 apple since that’s all I need for myself. But you can certainly use more. I prefer Gala apples, but if you have a favorite use that kind. Granny Smith might be a bit too potent for these though.
Here are the measurements for how much sweetener and cinnamon I used with one apple.
- Sweetener: 1 packet of Splenda per side. (AKA: 1 packet worked for all of one side of the apples, flipped them over and used another packet).
- Cinnamon: I just dumped some in my hand and sprinkled it over both sides of the apple slices until each piece had some cinnamon on them. It may be some trial and error to discover how much cinnamon is too much for you.
For me, these are perfect when I want something crunchy like a chip, but don’t have chips. They do take time to make, but trust me it’s totally worth it!
