I’m always on the lookout for delicious after school snacks. I like to keep them healthy whenever possible and a bit on the lighter side since dinner isn’t far off. I’ve purchased bags of apple chips in the past and they never last long in our house. That’s why I thought I’d try my hand at making them at home.
This recipe was so easy that I can’t wait to try it again. The most labor intensive part was slicing the apples thinly. I don’t have a mandolin so it took a bit of time to get each slice just right. I’ve since added a mandolin to my wish list so the next time I make these the prep should go much faster.
I baked the apples while Kora & Logan were at school. I pulled them out of the oven just as I headed off to pick them up at the end of the day. While they were baking I thought they smelled wonderful and it wasn’t just me. As soon as Kora walked in the door she asked, “What’s that wonderful smell?”
When I told her it was the apples she was excited to try them. The apples turned out just as good as if we bought them in a bag. I like that they are a healthy snack and perfect after school treat and I loved the apple cinnamon smell wafted through the house while they cooked. This recipe is a keeper and I’m looking forward to making these baked apple chips again soon.
