Baked Apple Chips

There’s nothing better than a delicious low calorie snack to help you get started with those new year’s resolutions to eat healthy.  My husband and I definitely went all out on delectable meals over the holidays so its time to get back into shape.  We still love our tangy honey mustard Ruffles ultimate chips but these cinnamon infused apple crisps is sure holding us over for now.  I followed this recipe and was very pleased with the results.

Ingredients:

6 medium-large apples (I used my favourite, Ambrosia but you can use any variety)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 tablespoons sugar

Preheat the oven to 225 degrees F

Slice the apples thinly, approximately 1/8 inch thick (if you have a mandolin, now is the time to use it). Place the apple slices into a large bowl and mix in the lemon juice to prevent the apple slices from browning. Spread the apple slices in a single layer on a parchment covered baking sheet. Try not to overlap them. You must cover your baking sheets with parchment or your apples will stick to the pan.

In a small bowl, whisk together the cinnamon and sugar. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture liberally over top of the slices. Bake in the oven for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Every 30 minutes flip the apple slices over to ensure they bake evenly. You will know they are done when they are just at the point of browning. Allow the chips to cool completely on the baking sheet.

Enjoy!

Welcome to 2014!  I just finished writing my list of New Years resolutions for the year.  I love reflecting back on how much I’ve accomplished at the end of each year.  This year, I completed 11 of my goals but missed 2.  The two that I missed were: 1) clean up the mess in my old room (mom’s house) and organize my clothes there.  2)  Sell my wedding dress.  Its such a bittersweet feeling to sell a wedding dress.  On the one hand, its this memorable piece that you will always treasure because it makes you remember all the fun times at your wedding, but on the other hand, its just sitting there doing nothing.  Oh decisions decisions…guess I just might have to do it this year.  Thanks for reading!  xx
