It’s apple season, the most glorious time of the year. And now that apples are big and glossy, hanging low on their drooping branches, it’s time to use them in every possible way you can imagine.

We use apples in desserts and salads on a regular basis, but have you ever thought of turning them into homemade chips? Me neither.


I found this recipe in my friend Lisa’s brand-spanking-new cookbook, The 100 Days of Real Food Cookbook.

I met Lisa and Jason Leake last year at a blogger event and loved them instantly. Not only are they fellow North Carolinians, they are passionate about eating clean and living healthy, as you can see from their very popular blog 100 Days of Real Food.

Lisa has worked endless hours to develop her first book: one-half guidebook on how to eat clean (from reading labels to meal plans) and one-half cookbook with countless simple, clean, and tasty recipes.

100 Days of Real Food

This book is filled to the brim with ideas of how to plan, cook, and enjoy real food. That’s is, unprocessed foods without all the muck added in for shelf-life.

There are 100 fabulous recipes, many of which are gluten-free, vegetarian, dairy-free and freezer friendly.

The first recipe I tried from Lisa’s beautiful book are her baked apple chips.

Crispy, sweet, and full of goodness, this recipe made me wonder why I haven’t been making my own baked chips all along.

You simply slice apples very thin and remove the cores. Lay them out on a buttered baking sheet and sprinkle with cinnamon.

Then bake the apple slices until crisp. Easy right?

Oh my word, are they good!

This recipe makes 2 regular servings of baked apple chips, but once I tested them, I wished I had made a quadruple batch.

    If I make a big batch of these, how long are they good for and do you need to store them in the fridge or in a container in the cabinet?

    I made the chips last night and they were delicioous. I put them in a air tight container last night and just opened it to have one and they aren’t crispy anymore but more soggy. Should I have left them out overnight or did I just not bake them enough?

    I have a mandolin, so I cored the apples with my corer, sliced them thin with the mandolin, and in 3 minutes I had a batch to put in the oven! Great idea and a very tasty snack!

    My 2 year old son LOVES these (well, so do my husband and I ;-) )!!  I also used our mandolin, but was going to use a corer on the middles.  However, I realized that I don’t actually have one.  Ha!  I also didn’t want to take a lot of time cutting out each individual slice’s core with a little cookie cutter.  SOOO, I pulled out my donut cutter, stacked a bunch of slices on top of each other and used the cutter to get the cores out.  The apples that I used were small enough to fit perfectly inside the cutter without the sides being trimmed off.  It was a breeze!  That was a couple weeks ago, and now today I have a double (at least) batch in the oven at this moment!  Can’t wait for them to be done! :-D
