Addictive, no sugar added baked apple chips are baked slowly in a low oven. Your patience will be rewarded when you bite into those yummy, crispy apple chips!
These baked apple chips are wonderful. They are sweet-and-tangy, crunchy, and just plain addictive. With no added sugar – no added anything in fact except cinnamon – these baked apple chips are also very healthy.
You will need to be patient though! These apple chips must be baked for a long time at a low temperature. But your reward, flavorful dried apple slices that have no added sugar and are not just tasty but also good for you – will be well worth it.
Although not super low carb, a serving of these baked apple chips has 8 grams net carbs. So as long as you’re not on a very low carb diet, you can safely incorporate them into your menu, at least occasionally.
This is a wonderful recipe to make on a cold winter weekend when you’re home anyway. It will make your house smell so good!
How to eat these baked apple chips? They are excellent on their own. But sometimes I mix plain Greek yogurt with a bit of cinnamon, and I dip the apple chips into that. It’s so good!
If you have leftovers, I suggest keeping them in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Reheat them in a 250F oven before serving, or eat them cold. They are good either way.
Another great apple recipe that I love (and is Paleo and gluten free but not low carb) is this recipe for gluten free apple fritters. And if you’re in the mood for sweet tasting but healthy homemade snacks, you should also try this easy recipe for healthy homemade fruit snacks. My kids love them!
Baked Apple Chips
- 2 medium Fuji apples, unpeeled
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 225 degrees F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Using a very sharp knife, slice the apples as thinly as possible. Gently remove the seeds with a small paring knife.
- Arrange the apple slices in a single layer on the baking sheets. Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon.
- Bake 1 hour. Flip to the other side, sprinkle with more cinnamon, and bake 1 more hour.
- Check to see if the apple slices are crisp. If they're still a bit soft, flip again and bake 30 more minutes, or until crisp.
- Transfer to a cooling rack and allow to cool for 30 minutes before enjoying.
