Cinnamon Apple Chips

I went to a Pick-Your-Own farm yesterday and came back with local pumpkin, squash, green tomatoes, and apples. I am all pumped up over making meals from each of these things, so keep an eye out; autumn recipes are coming! These cinnamon apple chips take awhile to bake (because you're essentially dehydrating them in your oven), but they are very delicious and healthy. Enjoy!


Prep Time:
10 minutes
Cook Time: 2 hours


Ingredients

Three (3) seasonal apples
1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
Two (2) tablespoons of granulated sugar



Directions

Preheat oven to 200F degrees. Don't increase the heat because you want to decrease the cook time; we are dehydrating the chips, not cooking them.

Slice apples thinly with a mandolin or sharp knife.
Lay the apple slices out on a parchment paper-covered baking pan.
Mix cinnamon and sugar in a separate bowl.
Sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar mixture lightly on the apple slices. Flip them over and sprinkle the other side as well.

Bake in the oven for one hour, then flip the apple slices and bake for another hour.
Remove from oven and let cool for a delicious snack!
