Cinnamon Apple Chips

I have been trying to be better lately about not baking so many sweets for the people I love. During the holidays I relapsed a bit, but did not go as crazy as I have in the past. Now that there are no good excuses to bake cookies for a bit, I am relegated to once again cooking up some healthy treats for everyone when they come home.

These cinnamon apple chips are a delicious alternative to regular potato chips, and are so easy to make. They even have a pie scented.air freshener for your whole house!

Here is what you will need:
  • Cutting mat
  • Sharp knife or mandolin
  • 2 large apples
  • 1/4-1/3 c. sugar 
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
Step 1:
Preheat oven to 250. Wash and dry off apple slices. Thinly slice on cutting mat or mandolin. Make sure to cut off the ends first, and then pick out the seeds. No one wants to eat seeds. Some of the slices will have a star shape to them in the middle.

Mix your sugar and cinnamon in a small cup or empty spice container. Arrange slices in a single layer on a sprayed baking pan and sprinkle with spice mix.

Step 3:
Turn them every half hour until they are completely dry. Depending on how thick you sliced the apples, this could take 1-2 hours.

Step 4:
Place on cooling racks until completely cooled. Store in an air tight container. These do not have to be refrigerated.
