Cinnamon Apple Chips made with a few simple ingredients like McIntosh apples, cinnamon and sugar are a healthy snack your whole family will love.
Don’t you think that these baked Cinnamon Apple Chips look gorgeous?! Every once in a while I take a photo that I’m 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.
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.
Recently, I purchased a bag of McIntosh apples because I wanted to experiment with making homemade apple chips. We don’t own a dehydrator, but I figured that I could bake the apple chips in the oven at a low temperature. Thank goodness it worked!
How do you make baked Cinnamon Apple Chips in the oven?
Start by coring the apples, slice them into circles about 1/8-inch to 1/4-inch thick, toss with cinnamon and sugar; then bake for 2-3 hours until the apples soften. Try to get the circles as close to uniform sizes as you can. Thinner chips will burn in sections before the rest of the apple has a chance to dehydrate.
I use a sharp knife to slice mine on a cutting board; however, you can use a mandoline or an electric slicer if that’s easier for you. Also, if you want to reduce your sugar intake, you can omit the extra sugar too. They still taste great!
I don’t know why it took me this long to make these 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.

- Preheat oven to 200 degrees fahrenheit.
- Add the sliced apples to a large bowl; then coat the apples with the cinnamon and/or sugar.
- Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray or line one with parchment paper; then line the apples flat on the pan. (You may need to use two pans so that they are not overlapping).
- Bake 2-3 hours until the chips are dry yet still a bit soft. Allow to cool completely before placing them in an air tight container for up to 4 days (if they last that long!).
