Crisp and sweet cinnamon apple chips recipe for a light and healthy snack.
Fruit and vegetable chips make wonderful, healthy snacks everyone can enjoy. They also have the benefit of being simple to make and these apple chips are no exception.
While traditionally sliced horizontally, through the core, I like to use my sheet slicer for this recipe. It makes chips that are a consistent thickness and I can use any extra apple sheets for my apple tuna wraps (recipe coming soon).
If using a air-fryer instead of an oven, set the temperature to 300°F / °C. Just like ovens, each air-fryer cooks a little differently, so flip the slices after 10 minutes, assess how crisp they are, and adjust final cooking time as needed. If you cut your chips very thin, 10 minutes might be all they need, though I've found that very thin chips tend to stick to the basket.
TIP: The apples can be cut with a knife, sheet slicer, or mandolin.
TIP: Air-fry for crispier results.
(Makes 4 servings)
2 Honeycrisp apples, sliced 1/8-inch thick (or favourite type of apple)
1 teaspoon avocado oil
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350°F / 180°C. Prepare two sheet pans by lining them with parchment paper then set aside.
Place the sliced apples into a mixing bowl and drizzle with oil, and sprinkle with cinnamon. Toss the apples to evenly coat with oil and spice. Transfer the apple slices to the sheet pans arranging them in 1 flat layer.
If using cooking spray, lay out the apple slices on the sheet pans, spray lightly and dust with cinnamon. Flip slices over and repeat.
Bake for 30 minutes, flipping the slices after 15 minutes. Remove from the oven once they have turned golden brown and crisp.
Transfer the apple chips to a cooling rack and cool to room temperature before serving.
