Only 3 ingredients!

  • Apples: This recipe is great to make after you go apple picking. Such a great way to use them up! Any variety that’s sweet and crisp will work. Some of my favorites are fuji, honey crisp, Jonathan and Melrose.
  • Cinnamon: I love the flavor that cinnamon adds! The spice from the cinnamon mixed with the sweetness from the sugar and maple syrup is such a delicious combination!
  • Sweetener: I like to add a few Tablespoons of sugar or maple syrup to give them a sweeter, more caramelized taste. If using maple syrup, make sure to use the genuine deal – no pancake syrup!

How to make apple chips in oven

I used to think you needed a dehydrator in order to make fruit chips. Nope! You can easily bake apple chips in the oven. Just follow the simple steps below.

  1. SLICE. Preheat oven to 225º F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Slice apples and then lay out on top of baking sheets (make sure they don’t touch).
  2. MIX. Mix together the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Then sprinkle the mixture over the tops of the apples. If using maple syrup, simply brush the tops.
  3. BAKE. Place both baking sheets in the prepared oven and bake for 1 1/2 hours. Flip apples over and continue baking for 1 more hour, until the apples are crispy.

Helpful tips

  • Slice the apples lean. The thinner they are, the quicker they’ll cook and the more crispy they’ll obtain. It’s important to cut them into same sized slices too, so that they evenly cook in the oven. If you have a mandoline, you can use that instead of a knife if preferred.
  • Spread in a single layer. Make sure none of the slices are touching and spread them out evenly on your baking sheets. This way they don’t stick together and all of the outsides obtain crispy and delicious.
  • Cook low and slow. The key to getting perfectly crispy baked apple chips is to bake them at a low heat (225º F) and cook them for several hours (about 2 1/2). No need to use a fancy dehydrator to make these – the oven works just fine!

Storing

Let the chips cool completely before storing. Then place any leftovers in an airtight container or bag and store at room temperature for up to 1 week.
