Healthy Snack ~ Cinnamon Sugar Baked Apple Chips
Personally, I highly recommend this healthy snack to all of you in this autumn/ fall season and the weather.
It is a really really really easy home-made chips, no oil, no deep-fry, no fat, no cholesterol, no salt, think of anything else???
The reason that I make this apple chips because I bought few bags of apple from the bargain corner this week, I took some to make few jars of applesauce for my cake later to use; I made one apple crumble already with my all time custard sauce ; I made one apple pie ~ I will post it later 🙂 ; and I still have some left in the garage, so I decided to make some things with apple but healthy and light!
The main ingredient was the apple, washed it and sliced it with a mandolin slicer or use a sharp knife to slice it as thin as possible, I didn’t core the apple slices and kept the star pattern for the nice look. So, whether to core or not, is up to you now!
Mix 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon with 1 tablespoon of brown demerara sugar. So more of less cinnamon sugar depends on how many apple chips you make.
Preheat the oven to the lowest setting, mine is 200°F/100°C/80°C (fan oven).
Arranged few baking trays and lined with baking parchment or oven proofed baking mat, lay the apple slices on the tray, and sprinkled with the cinnamon sugar on each slice, transfer to the preheat oven and bake to dehydrate and crisp up, it takes about an hour, remove the apple slices out and flip over, put it back to the oven and bake for another hour, then turn off the oven and keep the chips inside, let it cool completely in the oven, the chips will turn more crispy.
Note: If you bake a few trays in the same time, during the baking time, you need to swap around the tray to let it bake evenly, because the bottom tray will produce less heat.
