I’ve always been fascinated by snowflakes. They say that no two snowflakes are the same, and that just blows my mind…especially when I look outside of my window in February and see piles and piles and piles of snow. Think how many snowflakes that is – and that’s just in my yard alone!

The point remains that individual snowflakes are really awesome. Sometimes I’ll just stand outside and let the snow fall on my gloves. It’s fun to see how intricate and different each snowflake is!

I bring up the snowflake thing because these Cinnamon Apple Chips totally remind me of snowflakes. Each chip is different. Some end up with these really cool wavy edges. Others end up with a fun star shape in the middle. But each one is different. And each one is delicious!

Cinnamon Apple Chips

This Cinnamon Apple Chips are incredibly easy to make at home. I’ll usually make 1-2 batches each fall when apple season rolls around. Of course, these chips would be a great snack any time of the year. I just associate them with the fall because that’s prime apple season.

Sometimes I pull out the big dehydrator to make these apple chips, but this time I kept it simple and went with oven-baked apple chips. (The advantage of the dehydrator is volume – I can make a lot of apple chips using the dehydrator.) The only drawback of using the oven is you are limited to 2-3 sheet pans. And let me tell ya – one apple makes a lot of apple chips!

The only hard thing about making these oven-baked apple chips is slicing the apples. You really want those apples to be sliced as thinly as possible. That’s where a mandolin comes in. I use this mandolin, and it’s super easy to use. (Of course, you always want to be careful using a mandolin.) I set the width to 1/16″, and that worked well for these apple chips.

Once you’ve got the apples sliced, you just lay ’em out on a sheet pan and sprinkle the tops with cinnamon-sugar. Into the oven for 1 hour – flip – into the oven for another hour. That’s it. You’ll end up with a pile of delicious cinnamon-sugar chips!

We pack Robbie snacks with his lunch for at school, and we often run out of healthy ideas. These Cinnamon Apple Chips are a great option to include in the rotation. They’re tasty + easy to make. That’s a win-win in my book! I hope you enjoy these chips as much as we do!

Ingredients

  • 2 medium apples I used 1 Granny Smith and 1 Honeycrisp
  • 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • tsp ground cinnamon

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 200°F.
  • Line 2 sheet pans with parchment paper; set pans aside.
  • Wash and dry apples.
  • Slice apples as thinly as possible. (Note: I highly recommend using a mandolin to slice the apples evenly into 1/16” thick slices. Make sure the apples are the same thickness so that they bake evenly! To get the star pattern, slice the apple starting from the bottom. Remove seeds before baking.)
  • Arrange apple slices on prepared sheet pan.
  • Using a small bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle mixture lightly on top of apple slices.
  • Bake for 60 minutes. Remove pan from oven, flip slices over and continue baking for 60 more minutes, or until slices feel dry to the touch. (Tip: To test doneness, remove an apple chip from the pan and let rest at room temperature for 2-3 minutes. If it’s crispy once it’s cool, the apple chips are done! If not, continue baking in 10 minute intervals until the chips are crispy.)

    What a great idea David! You read my mind, as soon as I saw these delicious baked apple chips, I thought they’d be perfect for at school snacks. Apple, cinnamon, and sugar is one of my daughter’s favorite combinations. She’d go crazy over these apple chips! As would the rest of our family! 😋

    1. Hey Shannon! So these apple chips are fantastic. They do make a great snack for school…assuming everyone doesn’t eat ’em all first. 🙂 The good news is one apple makes a lot of chips! We’re heading apple picking this weekend, and I’m thinking we’ll need another batch of these for next week’s snacks!

    1. Hey Kelly!! These are a fun treat indeed – Robbie loves ’em as a snack for school. In fact, we’re heading apple picking this weekend, and I think I’ll be making him another batch of these. They’re delicious!

  3. You are right – each of these are different to each other – just like those snowflakes! But, unlike snowflakes, these have me drooling! Usually my apple chips are those in packages under the apples in the produce section – I don’t remember the brand name. But my complaint has always been that there’s just too few – however, with this recipe – oooh, I would be in apple chip heaven! Have you tried making them in an air fryer btw? I need to grab me some apples and a mandolin to make me a batch of these!

    1. Haha – you’re totally right, Shashi. Snowflakes don’t leave you hungry usually. 🙂 So these apple chips are silly easy to make at home. WAY cheaper than buying the ones at the store. I haven’t tried an air fryer for these, but I’m sure it would be an easy transition. Wait – you don’t have a mandolin!? Go treat yoself! We don’t use ours all that often, but it’s absolutely essential for some recipes – like these apple chips. Yum!

    We’ll be getting snowflakes soon enough, lol!! I’d love to give these apple chips a try! Not only do they look lovely, I bet they’re pretty darn tasty too! And I bet the cinnamon adds so much flavour!!

    1. Yes! Snow season isn’t all that far away for you guys up there. Hopefully it’s further away for us now that we’ve moved south. 🙂 These apple chips are fantastic indeed – definitely recommend making a batch! Stay warm up there, Dawn!

    1. I’m with ya, Kathy! I occasionally pick up dried fruit in the store – but it’s so easy to make at home! (And so much cheaper, too…) These apple chips are perfect for this time of the year!!

  5. that is a fascinating thought about snowflakes David 🙂 I had never thought of making apple chips but it’s a great idea. Next autumn … I’ll have to hide the mandoline tho; hubby gets super antsy when i haul it out of the pantry.

    1. Haha – you do have to be careful with the mandolin! Mine has a cool guard on it that keeps you from turning your finger into finger chips. 🙂 But, yes, definitely put this apple chips recipe on the list for next fall. It’s a healthy and surprisingly easy snack!!
