These yummy cinnamon apple chips will disappear almost as quickly as you make them! They're perfect for healthy snacks and easy to take on the road. The secret is baking at a very low temperature for a long time, which dehydrates the apples.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 225 degrees F (110 degrees C).

    Advertisement
  • Arrange apples slices on a metal baking sheet.

  • Mix sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl; sprinkle over apple slices.

  • Bake in the preheated until apples are dried and edges curl up, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Transfer apple chips, using a metal spatula, to a wire rack until cooled and crispy.

Cook's Notes:

Slice apples using the slicing blade of a food processor or a mandoline.

If you want, flip apple slices halfway through baking and sprinkle the other side with cinnamon sugar. Note: they will not feel crispy until they cool down.

The first time I made these it was a disaster. They stuck to the pan so bad that I had to scrape them off with a sharp knife into thousands of little pieces. I couldn't salvage anything to even try to taste one. I decided to try again, but spraying the sheet first. It worked! They are delicious and easily lifted from the sheet. One star if made according to directions and five stars if you spray the sheet first. Read More

I have tried making these twice now. Here are the tips I have to make them better: slice apples with a mandolin and then place in a bag with the cinnamon and sugar to coat both sides. Bake on parchment paper lined cookie sheets for an hour at 250, flip slices over and bake another hour. Read More

I tried the recipe, but gave it a twist. I made 2 batches, one with jalapeno and lime seasoning and one with cinnamon, powder vanilla, powder chocolate, and Splenda. I sliced them thick with mandalin, rubbed with coconut oil,before seasoning, sprayed the cookie sheets and baked at 250 degrees for 1 1/2 hours. Fantastic! Healthy eating while watching your diet.

I just made this last night and it is so good. My two kids inhaled them so I had to make a 2nd batch. I used two pans - one lined with a Silpat and the other with parchment and the apples on the parchment crisped up much faster than the ones on the Silpat. If you want super crispy chips, then bake for at least 90 minutes (flip midway) then turn the oven off and let the apples sit in the warm oven until the oven is cool. Read More

These turned out perfectly! I used my mandolin to cut them thinly. I didn't bother coring. I cooked them on parchment paper and flipped them over half way through cooking. After a minute or two out of the oven they were crisp and tasty! Read More

I made these with white chocolate mousse in shot glasses. It looked like leaves and apples were delicious. Everybody ate everything! To get the crispiness I baked my apples twice because I found that 45 mins to 1 hour was not long enough. I think more like 1 hour 30 mins to 2 hours. Make sure to turn them half way Read More

I thought these were good and fun to do. It would be a great addition to your fall event. I did however lessen the cinnamon used parchment paper used Granny Smith (all I had) baked for 45 min flipped them and baked for 30 /- until golden brown. I didn't have to core it just mandoline away. Read More

Delicious! I served with a homemade salted caramel dip. I gave this 4 stars because I had to bake longer than stated. I baked at 225 for about 2 hours total and they came out nice and firm. I flipped them over halfway through. I used parchment paper so there wasn't any issues with sticking. I used the mandolin to slice them and left the core to keep the pretty star shape in the center.

Loved these. No mandolin so just sliced them thin with a knife. Hardly needs the sugar listed, but the cinnamon is good. Baked for one hour and probably need another hour, as other reviewers suggested. Still delicious at 1 hour but not crispy yet. A wonderful snack. People eating them as fast as I can make them!
