Spiced Apple Chips

Apple Chips

Spiced apple chips recipe

October for many families means visiting a picturesque orchard and plucking the finest apples off of low laying fruit trees. Apples can be used in almost any way: slice, peel, puree, bake, fry, batter, drink – chip. I’m sure it comes to no surprise that you can slice up these bad boys and bake them to enjoy crisp, flavourful and healthier alternative to fried potato chips.

Here’s an easy recipe to follow if you have a few extra apples lying around

What you need:

  • 3 large apples, cored (we used cortland and honey crisp)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp sugar

What you do:

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Using a mandolin, slice the apples as thin as possible.
  3. Lay apple slices on parchment paper. The edges can touch, but be careful not to overlap any otherwise the covered part will not bake evenly.
  4. Mix sugar and cinnamon, then sprinkle over sliced apples. You can alter our suggested mixture to your taste and add in anything else you feel like! Experimenting here is the fun part!
  5. Bake for 50 minutes, then remove from the oven. Flip each slice over, and sprinkle sugar and cinnamon to the other side. Place trays back into the oven for another 50 minutes. They should look slightly shrivelled, and the plain apples get a little golden brown. They should feel pretty dry to the touch.
  6. Remove from oven and let ‘chips’ cool completely before transferring to an airtight container a maximum of 3 days. We suggest that you enjoy the same day – warm and fresh out of the oven!

TIP: Poach your apple slices in pure maple syrup first and then bake them using the method above to get an even more flavourful chip!
