Cinnamon Baked Apple Chips

Baked apple chips recipe.

Cinnamon Baked Apple Chips are a delicious way to welcome fall.

I was born and raised in Washington State, where apples are abundant. Pick up any apple at your local supermarket and chances are the sticker says it’s from WA!

One year a neighbor gave us homemade cinnamon apple chips as a Christmas gift. I remember thinking that it tasted better than candy. When I saw the recipe I was disappointed to see that it used refined white sugar. So over the years I’ve worked on recreating those sweet crispy apple chips using more wholesome ingredients. This recipe hits the nail on the head, using a sprinkle of coconut crystals instead of refined sugar.

What’s also great about this recipe is that you don’t need a dehydrator and you don’t have to wait for dozens of hours for the apples to dry. Who has time for that, right? This technique, using an oven to dry the apples, only takes about 2 hours.

My kids love to take these in their lunch to school. It’s great for an on-the-go snack!

    I was just wondering about the fruit juice… Would it be ok to chill & drink it after using it to boil the apple slices? I just wouldn’t like to pour out 6 cups of fruit juice.

      Hi Jennifer,
      I don’t see why not, it would be like cider!

    I forgot to buy cinnamon sticks when I was at the market. Would it taste the same if I just sprinkle some cinnamon in the fruit juice instead of going back out?

      Hi Kendra, you could certainly try that. The cinnamon flavor probably won’t be as strong but it would still taste yummy! Happy Cooking!
