Baked Apple Chips

Tuesday, September 13, 2011

I am totally guilty of snooping in other peoples carts at the grocery store. I want to know what other people are getting. What if I'm missing out on something! Saturday (after my super muddy FUN mud run and 5 showers later) we went to the grocery store and the lady in line ahead of us had a bag of baked apple chips in her cart. YUMMMers.

I thought these would probably not be that complicated to make myself...I also figured they would taste better warm and fresh out of the oven. I was right. Love it when that happens ;) So that is where this inspiration for this recipe came from...an unknown lady's shopping cart.

What you will need:
  • 2 apples
  • Cinnamon
Directions:
  • Remove apple core. I most likely did this wrong since half of the apple was missing when I removed it but you get the idea.
  • Thinly slice the entire apple.
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and place apple slices on it.
  • Sprinkle with cinnamon.
  • Bake at 275 degrees for two hours. At the end of hour one flip them over so they bake evenly.

* UPDATE: Check on them at the hour mark and every 30 minutes after that. Once they look nice and crispy take them out. :)

These were SO good!! The perfect healthy treat! I have a feeling these will be a a weekly must have once fall is in full swing...plus they made my house smell delicious...

This is something I must try! I don't like to eat apples but I love them when they're baked in something or dried.

Andrea@Fancy That! said...

I love apple chips, but every time I've tried making them myself I can't get them remotely crunchy. Were yours on the crunchy side or simply dehydrated? They taste good either way, but I like the crunch.

Lindsay said...

This sounds amazing! We love apples around here AND cinnamon, so very good combination. :) Nothing better to get into the 'fall' spirit. :)

Ashley said...

soo yum!! i am trying this soon! thanks girl.

Jacob15 said...

cool, I am gonna show my mom :)

Lindsay @ Delighted Momma said...

Andrea- The ones that were thinner were crunchy..the thicker ones had more of a dehydrated texture. Both good though! Next time I think I will bake them a little longer at a higher temp to give them more crunch :)

Meg {henninglove} said...

yum! what a great easy and healthy snack to make :-)

Renee said...

Jacob15 got some in the oven now :) He will post pics when they are done :)

Libby said...

ohh my goodness gracious, those look amazing! have you had the dried apples from trader joes? i used to be obsessed with those. but cinnamon + apples = amazing! i used to slice an apple, put stevia + cinnamon on it and microwave it for 1-2 mins and it turned out soo well. I will be trying this recipe of yours soon though. Thanks!

The Blonde @ Stylish3 said...

Oh, wow... these look great and I love that they're so simple to make!!

Anne said...

Oh yummo Lindsay! How nice do they sound? You know, I have a dehydrator and have been dying to use it. I might try that. A touch of cinnamon. Looking forward to summer and an abundance of stone fruit. I'll get the dehydrator fired up but in the meantime, I'll give this crisps a go. Great idea!

Brynn {chartreuse and a twist} said...

Oh, YUM! This is a perfect fall snack...I love the idea of them being warm right out of the oven... what a treat :) xoxoxo brynn

Libby said...

I JUST went to the grocery store to get apples to make this, and Bragg's (from another one of your posts), came home to this up on the computer screen and totally forgot the apples : /

Hi Lindsay! I look in other people's carts too..and I ask them about it. Its funny how the grumpiest looking people come alive when you show them some interest. I love your chips idea and I pinned it. I'm your newest follower, found you from Grocery Shrink's newsletter. Please stop by www.myparentingcoach.com when you get a chance to say hello.

We have tool to remove the core of the apple and not as much would be wasted as with a knife. We use it when we make baked apples and could be used for apple chips.

Shasta said...

They look delicious! I've been meaning to pick up some apples so I can make some apple crisp. Whatever leftovers I have will have to go towards this. :)

WP95JMA said...

Unfortunately I didn't keep a close enough eye on them in the 2nd hour and I burned them :( However, they were crisp LOL

lacywallace said...

Following you over from the reference on MoneySavingMom. Love your blog, and love the apple chips idea.

Jamie, Nate and Raider Payne said...

Half of mine are looking great and crisping up nicely, the other half are turning dark brown and are still "chewy", am i missing something?!

sunnymum said...

Thanks for the inspiration! Not sure if I burned my batch or just sprinkled too much cinnamon (or both!). Mine taste like wood crisps, but the kids are still eating them like crazy. Going to pick more apples to try again!

Janelle said...

What kind of apples did you use, and how thinly did you slice them? I tried this tonight with a couple of MacIntoshes, and after an hour, they were seriously crustified to the pan and smelled half-burnt. I forgot the parchment paper, but I wouldn't think it would make THAT huge of a difference.

SilentLady said...

Just bought 30 lbs of apples. Wil definitely give this a try!

Anonymous said...

Mine are in the oven right now-saw this on pinterest, put my laptop down, ran into the kitchen-now cooking...

Carolyn said...

Oooh this sounds yum! Just found your blog! Can't wait to read more of your stuff!

Cassie said...

Are they shelf stable or should I keep them in the fridge? Anyone have a guess of nutrients?

Chrissy said...

I used a mandolin to slice thin and didn't bother to core them at all. The seeds just fall out while slicing. They're baking as we speak. Thanks for the inspiration!

Heidi said...

I've got 4 cookies sheets (used Silpat matts) in my oven now! Thanks for the easy idea; I found you via Pinterest! ~Heidi

A. Patt said...

I have these in the oven right now and the house smells AMAZING! I can't wait to share these with my family tomorrow!!! Thanks! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

Erika said...

I tried these and they were delicious! And the whole house smelled awesome. A friend came over to drop something off and couldn't believe how good it smelled either! Thanks for the awesome idea and recipe! (I found you on pinterest) :)

Erin said...

I found your blog via pinterest. I made these and they are so delicious, I've started making a big batch once a week so I can snack on them for several days... although, they usually only last like like 48 hours.

kbalke said...

Thanks for posting! I just made these via Pinterest and I am terrible at coring apples, so I just sliced them whole and then took a 1 inch frosting tip and punched out the core using the bottom of the tip. Worked great! Now I cannot wait to taste them in 2 hours!

beckykid said...

I don't know if I can wait 2 hours to eat these LOL. Thanks for the idea!

Michelle Beaupre said...

I just stumbled upon recipe via Pinterest and decided I had to try it right away. I will be honest and say that yes, I do sell Pampered Chef (in Canada) but I gotta say that the Pampered Chef's Cook's Corer removes exactly the right amount in the middle. Better yet, we just came out with a Microwave Potato Chip Maker and I did these in the microwave in about 9 mins!! Perfect!! And so delish! I don't want to overstep and put my website here but if you'd like more info on trying either of these products, let me know and I'll send my website. Just thought it might really help some of you who are obviously LOVING these too! Cheers!

Jennifer M said...

These look amazing! I'm sure we'd polish them off in an evening, but if not do you know how long they keep for? Thanks! Jenn

Anonymous said...

I tried making these and most of them turned out burnt (even though i took them out 30 min EARLY because they were getting brown) Any suggestions? Also, what kind of Apples did you use? :)

Anonymous said...

Mine were burnt after an hour :( Maybe I cut them too thin?

Lindsay @ Delighted Momma said...

If they burned try reducing the bake temp next time. Also make sure your using a large type of apple. Hope that helps! :)

Lauren said...

I also burned my first batch but figured it out with my second pan- really delicious and satisfied my sweet tooth after dinner :)

BELLA LA VITA said...

i cant wait to make these! I have added this recipe to my blog notyourordinarymuffintop.blog.com

ishwishdish said...

Just want to add my experience for those who would like tips from someone who has tried this. I cut my apples on a mandolin (and my finger, yikes!) so they were nice and thin. I used convection at 250 degrees for an hour and 15 minutes. I noticed that they were still a bit bendy but as soon as they cooled they crisped right up. I also used cinnamon sugar and I liked them so much. Definitely reminded me of the bagged apple crisps. Hope that helps!

sammy59 said...

Sounds yummy, but too much energy used to make them (gas) (electric) stove....not the human kind

Carlye Jean Rankin said...

I am making these right now. I can't wait to eat them up!

Gaylynn said...

Thanks for this recipe. Healthy snacking for superbowl.

Liz said...

I love this idea and just happen to have 19lbs of pink ladies from my co-op. How would you store these? Are they dried enough that they can be kept on the shelf or would they need to be refrigerated/frozen?

Caroline said...

i just sliced up an apple and put them in the oven! :)) great idea! I cant wait to taste them! thanks!

SharonD said...

Sprinkling Jello powder on the apples is delicious too. My favorite is strawberry jello.

Kristin Can Cook said...

Tried these tonight! Thanks for the inspiration!

melaulau said...

I also used a mandolin to slice the apples, which worked out nicely. And, I used some older apples that we wouldn't have otherwise eaten, so I was glad they didn't go to waste! (we're not big on applesauce). My kids didn't know the difference and loved them =D ***But, Anyone know how to store them? After putting them in an air-tight container overnight, they got soggy. =(

Lindsay @ Delighted Momma said...

Melaulau- These are best when eaten right away. I would not suggest storing them as you might get that soggy effect like you mentioned.

keila said...

Yum! Can't wait to try these. My kids will love them!

ohshineon.com said...

I love this recipe... So easy and delicious. Oh, and I always snoop to see what other people are buying at the store!

lilycatherine said...

Hmm, I'm defenitely going to try this one! (:

Madiloo said...

I love this idea. Will try these for sure!

sstamey said...

great idea! how long do they keep?

amu said...

i just attempted to make these and they looked fine but after 15 minutes they started burning, do you have any suggestions on how to keep the slices consistant and thin? how did you slice them?

BobbysBug91204 said...

I wonder if tossing them in EVOO would make them crisp better

Baby Bloom Kidz Closet said...

really great idea... must try recipes...

nadioz said...

Tried this today, it was delicious, thank you.

Meagan said...

Thanks for the recipe! I tried to make them today and they were a big fail- how thick did you cut your apples? I think I may have made mine too thin so they got crunchy very quickly. Will try again!

Thanks,

cute devil said...

Hello, thanks for the recipe! I'm making them right this second! Though it's at its 1 hour mark and some of it look half burnt! Do I keep going? Though I touched some and they were not crispy yet... What a dilemma

Helen Deeds said...

Thanks for sharing this! I will be doing something similar today since all of my apples are falling off the tree and are ready to be used!

This will be great for my classroom. I cook with my well behaved third graders every Friday. This year, because of new rules, we have to watch what we give them. Healthy snacks are a must....so if you have any other easy/healthy snacks, let me know!!!!

Thank you, thank you!

Wow that's sounds incredible and easy. Two of my favorite things.

jenniferschrauth said...

These look like they would be a great snack to keep on hand. Do you know how long they stay good if put in a ziploc bag of tupperware?

Renee said...

YUM!!! I am going to make these RIGHT NOW.

Bethany Johnson said...

I'm baking a batch of these right now after buying some local Honey Crisp Apples. I found that if you slice the apples with a small mandolin/slicer, coring them is unnecessary. The little seed bits pop right out and you don't lose as much of the apple.

Joy Martin said...

How many servings does this recipe make? Also how would you recommend storing them?

Anonymous said...

These are great! I even added a bit of sugar it was yummy!!

WOW, looks amazing :) Love your blog
Amazing dish, a simple recipe to make.
You can add coconut

EricaB said...

My apples didn't burn but after 45 Minny entire house was smokey.... took them out and now dinning fans... house smells good but kind of an epic fail!

Noreen said...

Do you think these would ship well?

Anonymous said...

Third time making these this week!!! So yummy. It's so hard waiting two hours for them though.

Kelsey @ Evergreen Gift Company said...

A simple, healthy snack perfect for fall! Will try soon, thank you for sharing!

Anonymous said...

Anyone know how long they last? I want to make some in advance for a party

Anonymous said...

If you have one of those slicers (Mandoline) you do 'not' have to core the apple. The seeds will just fall out and it makes a pretty star center.

Anonymous said...

would they stick to the pan with out the paper

Melds said...

I love apple chips, so simple to make. thanks.

Anonymous said...

i did this and at the hour mark to flip them over... they were completely burnt.

Anonymous said...

Can you use any apples? I like granny smith apples only

Mona said...

I tried it and I am absolutely in love with these! Amazing! Love the taste of cinnamon on the apples!

Anonymous said...

These end up being more chewy than crunchy like the freeze dried ones, but still taste good.

Anonymous said...

What kind of apples did you use?

Pauline Kim said...

I just tried these last night, but I'll have to make some changes the next time I make them. I put them in the oven and set a timer for 1hr to flip the slices. When the timer went off and I took them out, they were already starting to burn. They weren't too bad as they were crispy, but I couldn't get past the slightly burned taste. My boyfriend on the other hand still liked them and ate them all. I'll definitely try it again but I'll keep a closer eye on them to get the right timing. I'm thinking maybe 30 minutes would be enough. I was satisfied that they were crunchy, tho. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
