Are apple chips healthy?
With just apples and cinnamon, yes, I believe they’re very healthy. And 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.
How to serve them?
They are excellent on their own, and that’s how I usually eat them. But sometimes I mix plain Greek yogurt with a bit of cinnamon, and I dip the apple chips into that. It’s really good!
How long do homemade apple chips last?
If you have leftovers, I recommend keeping them in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 5 days. Reheat them in a 250F oven before serving, or eat them cold. They are very good either way.
