Step by step instructions for making homemade apple chips in the oven

Cut apples into thin slices.  The more even the better, so use a mandoline slicer if you have one.

Spread out over a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle with a small amount of cinnamon sugar if desired.

Bake at 225℉  until mostly dried.  The edges will curl, but they won’t necessarily feel dry to the touch immediately. They will harden a bit as they cool.

Store in an airtight container at room temperature.  Any moisture will make them soften a bit again.

Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 apple
  • optional: a teaspoon or so of cinnamon sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 225°F and place a sheet of parchment paper on a baking sheet.
  2. Slice apples 1/8-1/4" thick. This is done easiest on a mandolin.
  3. Place in a single layer on the baking sheet.  If desired, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
  4. Bake for 45-60 minutes (they will take a bit longer the thicker you cut them) or until the edges start to curl. Turn off oven, but leave the door shut and let them sit for another 15 minutes or so.
  5. Store in an airtight container.

Thank you for this recipe. I have been looking for apple chips (hard to find in stock that doesn't cost an arm & leg) after I pinned your recipe for Apple Spice Chex mix. Can't wait to try these!

I hope you love them! And you are right, apple chips are hard to find and cost way to much. These are definitely easy and much more affordable.
