Homemade Oven Baked Apple Chips

Making apple chips is really a two step procedure. Slice and bake. That’s all there is to it! (Well, you’ve also got to sprinkle a little cinnamon, but that doesn’t really count). Some recipes will also have you dip the apples in lemon juice to prevent browning, I personally think that the browning gives the apple slices more character. Other recipes will also have you add some sugar to the apple slices, something I also think unnecessary, as the apples carry so much natural sweetness already.

There are literally hundreds of different varieties of apples to choose from, ranging in color from yellow, green, red, and pink. Experiment and see which ones you like best. The apple you choose will, unsurprisingly, affect the taste of the final product.

Nutrition tip: Not all chips are created equally. When you’re craving something crispy, these Homemade Oven Baked Apple Chips are definitely an excellent alternative to the store-bought variety. Just like fresh, raw apples, these chips are a great source of fiber (soluble and insoluble). Just be mindful of how many you are eating!

Homemade Oven Baked Apple Chips: It's amazing how different an apple tastes once the moisture is removed. Naturally sweet, healthy and totally addictive.
Ingredients
  • 2 apples
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Instructions
  1. Position oven racks in the upper and lower third of oven.
  2. Preheat oven to 225 ℉.
  3. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  4. Wash and dry the apples.
  5. Core apples. (Optional)
  6. Slice apples as thin as possible (about ⅛ inch) with a very sharp knife or a mandolin (leave skin on).
  7. Place apples on the baking sheet in a single layer and not touching each other.
  8. Sprinkle cinnamon evenly over apple slices.
  9. Bake for approximately 1 hour and then turn each slice over, and continue to bake for at least another hour so. The longer they stay, they crispier they get.
  10. Best served the day they are made. Can be stored in an airtight container for a few days.
Notes
The baking time will vary based on the thickness of each slice and the moisture content of the variety of the apples.
Once the apple chips have been baked, they will crisp up as they cool off.

Thanks for dropping by.

Ciao for now!

    • With fall right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to turn some of those freshly picked apples into some chips 😉 Enjoy! Appreciate you taking the time to comment 🙂

  1. I’m on a low carb diet and have eliminated starchy vegetables such as potatoes and corn. Potato chips are a weakness so I was trying to come up with a healthy alternative with crunch, and these perfectly fit the bill! Made them for the first time today and they were crispy, tasty, and very “snacky” with no guilt which is to die for. Thanks for the recipe, I love trying new recipes-very fun to make. Will definitely make them again. 💗

  2. Hi Maria, love being able to use up all the apples from picking. Chips are a great idea but they only stay crispy for a short time after I remove them from the oven. They are well browned. Help!

    • Hi Karen, we also love using up all the apples we picked from our apple picking excursions-yes, there were 2 this year 🙂 I have been making apple chips the past couple of week-ends and this is what I have found: if I slice the apples a little on the thick side, they will not crisp up as much. So slicing them as thin as possible is crucial for crispy apple chips. Also, I find the apples to have more moisture this year -that is to say they are super juicy. As a result, I find I need to leave them in the oven a little longer than usual. So if you also have super juicy apples, try to use a lower temperature (200℉). Once they have spent about 1-1½ hour on each side (making sure you turn them over at the half way mark) turn the oven off and leave the apple slices in the oven for about another hour or so. I find they become even crispier. Hope that helps Karen. Appreciate you taking the time to comment. Enjoy the rest of the week!

  3. Thanks for sharing your recipe for apple chips. I simply love apple chips. I was always buying them from the store; and longed for a recipe that would allow me to have them any time. I used granny smith apples because they are my favorite.

  4. I love apple chips. I bought a bag of them the other day. Overpriced. I saw your site and am making them now with a Fuji apple. One apple pretty much takes up an entire baking pan lined with Reynolds Wrap Heavy Duty Non-Stick.
