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.


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.
