Apple Chips. You know you will eat the whole bowl.

To answer your question: Yes, yet ANOTHER snack recipe. But honestly: Snacks are my weakness. I can prepare three healthy meals a day and not miss a thing but I would still totally love to go for potato chips and the like. This is why I included many healthy snacks into my diet.

This recipe is as simple as it gets: Apple Chips

For this snack you will need:
  • Apples (DUH!)
  • Spices (optional)


Clean your apples and de-core them. If you don't have one of those helpfull little kitchen gadges you can do this part after the next step.


Using a mandolin or using you perfect cutting-skills, should you have them (I know I don't), cut the apples into thin thin thin slices, around 1-2 mm the most. This is important because if your apples are too thin they'll stick to the paper or burn. Cut them too thick they won't crisp up but go solid on the outside and stay moist on the inside. Should you have not de-cored them in the previous step you can cut the cores out now. Either use your knife or a tiny cookie-cutter on each slice.


Lay the slices out on an oven sheet and make sure they don't overlap before putting them into the oven at 100° for 30 minutes. Don't forget: We want to dry them, not cook them.
(Also: If you wanted you could add a pinch of sugar or cinnamon at this stage)


After 30 minutes pull the apples out of the oven and flip them over. Put them back into the oven and from now on try keeping an eye on them.
Tipp: After the first 30 minutes you will see that some of the apples might already be darker and crispier than the others others. If that's the case you should have an eye on your apples during the end of the second round. Just take the crispy ones out when they're done, otherwise they'll turn dark and taste bitter.

After all is done let the apples cool. They will get their real crunch after the last moisture evaporated.

(Compare these to the first picture of the rings. Amazing how the shrank :D )

All you have to do now is enjoy them ;)
