It’s apple season! If you’re like us apples are a staple in our home. Recently we went apple picking locally and probably over picked (!) like always… so I have been creative with our uses for them. One of my daughters favorites are apple chips so I make a batch of these weekly for an after school snack.
Apples are naturally sweet and a great source of fiber, and have many other health benefits. Apples contain antioxidants, vitamin C, and potassium, and can be used in a wide variety of ways in your cooking and baking.
One baking tip is to be sure to bake these low and slow or they will burn easily. And if you are allergic to cinnamon. or just don’t like it, then just omit, they are still very tasty!
These apple chips are best served the day they are made but can be stored in an airtight container for a few days.
