Crisp and Healthy Apple Chips

With the arrival of snow, it is finally starting to feel like winter! While you might think apple season only lasts through Thanksgiving, many local farmers grow storage varieties of apples that you can buy throughout the winter. Check out this great website, Seacoast Harvest, to connect with local farmers at farmstands and farmers’ markets year-round.

As we continue into holiday season, remember to consider your health when preparing foods. Here is a simple and delicious recipe for apple chips, brought to you by A Couple Cooks.

Makes: 4 to 6
What You Need
  • 4 apples (crisp apples work best- try Crispin, Mutsu, or Baldwin)
  • Parchment paper
  • Ground cinnamon
What To Do
  1. Preheat the oven to 225F.
  2. Wash the apples, then slice them as thinly as possible using a mandoline (or very sharp knife). Leave the cores in the apples; remove any seeds as you cut.
  3. Line baking trays with parchment paper. Lay the apples on the tray in a single layer, as close as possible without touching. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
  4. Bake for 1 to 2 hours, until as crisp as desired (a shorter baking time yields a chewier chip; bake time also depends on the thickness of the chip).
