Baked apple chips are probably my new favorite snack. I will admit that they take some time to make but they’re very low maintenance while baking. You’ll spend a few minutes preparing them and then you’ll throw them in the oven, flip them once and let your oven do all the work. Also, all you need are apples and cinnamon!
As a note: this recipe makes roughly enough to fill a sandwich size, ziplock bag.
2 apples (I picked out honeycrisp but feel free to use whatever kind you like)
cinnamon for dusting
Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.
Line a baking sheet with tin foil or parchment paper.
Wash apples and slice them to roughly ⅛” thickness, the thicker your slices the longer they will take to cook.
Discard seeds and stem.
Lay slices flat on baking sheet.
Dust with cinnamon to your liking, I found a light sprinkle worked well for me.
Bake for 1 hour.
Remove from oven and flip slices, dust with additional cinnamon.
Place back in the oven and bake for another 1 – 2 hours.
Remove and let cool.
Towards the end of your baking time you may want to periodically check your apples, ensuring you don’t burn them. I found that at the end of my baking time the apples were still slightly soft when warm but when I let them cool they hardened further becoming more chip like.
I hope you enjoy this snack as much as I did.

I didn’t realize you could make these at home, I thought I would need one of those vacuum baking contraptions. These were my favorite snack as a kid! I love the idea of making them at home and controlling what goes into them! If you’re interested, I would love for you to share a post at my link up today!
Absolutely, we’re happy to hear you liked it!
I always have a ton of apples to use up, so these sound ideal AND uber-healthy! How long do they last once made?
Ours lasted about 3 days because we ate them all 🙂 We kept them in the fridge.
No really is it that simple? I’m genuinely doing these tomorrow. I’m remember looking for dried pineapple recipes and gave up because it seemed I needed some snazzy equipment! Fab, thank you
Yes it is that simple. Just remember to keep your slices thin, even a little less than 1/8th inch is good. It will help to dry them out faster. Have fun baking!
Yum yum! I love apple chips!!
