I’ve already declared my love for Bare Apple Chips once before but I think it’s necessary I say it again. I LOVE THESE CHIPS. There must be crack in them because I am totally addicted. I know Amanda and Arman agree. The problem? The price tag. At the rate I am eating them-and I can down a bag in under 5 minutes-the $4 price tag just doesn’t fly. It was necessary I take things into my own hands (or kitchen) and recreate this deliciousness at home.
Thanks to a recent trip to the apple orchard, I have enough apples to last me through the next century. You can never have enough apples though. Some have been designated as raw snacking, others will make their way into pancakes and oatmeal and a select few I sacrificed to the oven. To be honest I was weary that these would not work out. With my many failed attempts at kale chips I thought a dehydrator might be required. Turns out all you need is an oven and 3 hours of patience. But don’t let the time dismay you, this is 3 hours of fairly hands-off cooking. I say fairly because you will be required to turn over the chips once after hour one. I think you can handle that.
Besides finding a cheap way to satisfy my apple chip addiction, these are also the perfect candidate for Amy’s Fruit & Veggie of the Month Link-Up. I’ll be honest, in the delirious state I’ve been in this past week I completely forgot about it. I think the fact that I posted a week early for the last month’s link-up makes up for my posting a week late for this month’s right? Forgive me Amy! Looking forward to seeing everyone else’s apple and pepper creations!Print
Baked Cinnamon Apple Chips
- Prep Time: 5 minutes
- Total Time: 3 hours
- Yield: 1-2 1x
- 2 apples (I used McIntosh)
- Preheat oven to 230 degrees F.
- Core apples and slice thinly.
- Place thinly sliced apples on 2 baking sheets lined with parchment or a silicone mat.
- Sprinkle apples with cinnamon.
- Bake apples for 1 hour.
- Remove from oven and flip apples. Sprinkle other side with cinnamon.
- Bake for another hour.
- Leave apples in oven but turn the oven off and allow them to cool completely inside oven. At least 1-2 hours. They will crisp up in this time.

Is there a snack you spend way too much money on? What’s your favourite way to eat apples?
