Don’t these Cinnamon Apple Chips look GORGEOUS?! Every once in a while I take a photo that I’m really, really proud of and this is one of them. It just pops from the screen yelling “Eat Me!”.  Isn’t that, after all, what a food blog should do? Entice you to try to make all of these wonderful recipes at home yourself.

My family and I love to go apple picking at our local orchard in the Fall. It’s a fun day out where we pick our apples, get mums for the yard, snack on cider doughnuts and kettle corn and finally seek out the perfect pumpkin to carve later in the month. I love sampling the different varieties of apples, but I tend to pick McIntosh or Honeycrisp because they are always naturally sweet and great for eating and baking.

Cinnamon Apple Chips

I recently purchased a bag of McIntosh apples at my local farmers market because I wanted to experiment with homemade apple chips and we haven’t ventured out yet to pick them ourselves. I don’t know why it took me this long to do so, because this is probably the EASIEST recipe you can make. The only caveat is that it has to cook for a few hours in order to allow the apples to dehydrate in the oven. Let me tell you, these Cinnamon Apple Chips were totally worth the wait! My youngest daughter had a friend over and they devoured them in no time flat. I did tell her to leave some for her father to try, but he only got 3 chips so I guess I’ll have to make these again very soon.  These Cinnamon Apple Chips are a delicious, healthy snack that are naturally gluten free and you don’t have to worry about your kids over indulging.

These Cinnamon Apple Chips, made with a few simple ingredients, are a healthy snack your whole family will love.

If you want to head outdoors this weekend to see some picturesque Fall foliage, try apple picking! Click here for a listing of events by state Apple Festivals 2014. And if you live in the tri-state area, you won’t want to miss  my favorite Applefest in Warwick this Sunday, October 5th. ~Enjoy!

Cinnamon Apple Chips
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Dessert, Snack
Serves: Serves 4
  • 4 Apples, cored and sliced ⅛” thick (I used McIntosh)
  • 1-2 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
  • 1-2 tsp. Granulated Sugar, if needed
  • Cooking Spray
  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees fahrenheit.
  2. Add the sliced apples to a large bowl; then coat the apples with the cinnamon and/or sugar.
  3. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and line the apples flat on the pan. You may need to use two pans so that they are not overlapping.
  4. Bake 2-3 hours until the chips are dry yet still soft. Allow to cool completely before placing them in an air tight container for up to 4 days (if they last that long!).

      I haven’t tried freezing them as every time I made them my family gobbled them up! However, I don’t think they would freeze well. They would probably get soggy once defrosted.

    These look amazing. I love the crispy sweetness of apples chips and I haven’t made them in so long. Thanks for the reminder. 🙂

    Absolutely wonderful!! I experimented and made these with the convection option: 300*F for 60 minutes rotating the pan (rack position) every 20 minutes!

    BTW– I am just across the county by the Gardiner/New Paltz area, another great apple source!

      Great, I’m glad they worked for you. I sped up the process when I made them again myself…the kids didn’t want to wait that long! lol I’ll have to take a trip up there next year for my apples. Thanks for stopping by!

    Sounds delicious! I wonder how these would come out if I put them in my dehydrator. Any thoughts?

      Thanks Jodie. I don’t have a dehydrator so I used a low oven temp to get the same result. I’m sure they would work just fine in your dehydrator; however, I’m not sure how long they would take. If you try it out, let me know and I’ll add that tip to the recipe. Thanks for stopping by!

      Thank you Olivia. I’ve added some nutritional information to the recipe, but they are 88 calories per serving. Enjoy! 🙂

    Are these 88 calories each slice?was planning on making them with no sugar ?

      No, it’s 88 calories per serving. I used 4 apples for this recipe and it serves 4 people so figure on 88 calories per apple. I hope that helps. You can certainly omit the sugar as well to reduce the calories as well. Enjoy!

    Would using parchment paper instead of cooking spray make a difference?

      I think it would work, but I’m not 100% certain because I haven’t tried it that way. Please let me know how it works if you try it Shawna!

    Hi, was thinking of making these but 200 degrees celsius for 2-3 hours? won’t they burn that way? or is it farenheit?

    I am looking forward to trying the oven-dried apple treats. As you can see, it’s apple season 2015 and we have wonderful orchards in our area. One “self-tip” I will try is my apple peeler. After peeling an apple, the apple is already sliced. I cut through one side and have full rings. OR I can slice all the way through the apple and have twice as many “bites”. 😉
