How to make apple chips

Apple chips (with or without added sugar) are easy to make. No need to peel or core the apples, just slice through the middle.

Equipment

  • Baking trays (any kind)
  • Parchment paper

Ingredients

  • 3 apples

Optional

  • 1 tablespoon white or brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon or pie spice
  • ½ teaspoon lemon juice powder

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 200°F. Line baking trays with parchment paper.
  • Slice the apples between 1/16th and ⅛th inch thick (about the thickness of a wheat thin). Slice through the core, and discard any seed fragment.
  • Place the apple slices on the parchment-lined trays. They can be touching side-by-side, but should not overlap.
  • If adding sugar and spices, sprinkle that on top now
  • Bake for 2-4 hours flipping half way through (see note). The baking time will depend on your type of oven and how thick the slices are. They are done when they feel dry and leathery. They will still be slightly pliable and bendable at this point, but should not feel wet.
  • Turn the oven off and let the chips crisp up. Note that well-sealed ovens should leave the door open to let moisture escape. Chips should crisp up within 10-30 minutes.

Notes

Flip apple chips half way through: the chips need to be lifted or flipped once. The timing isn't a science, just before they are dried out. If they aren't lifted off the pan and placed back on it, they will stick to it as they dry out. This will make them break when removing them after they dry out.
