For a healthy fall snack, satisfy your sweet tooth with crispy spiced apple chips. This simple recipe provides a nutritious alternative to processed, sugary treats while satisfying your craving for the classic autumn flavors of nutmeg and cinnamon.
- 3 large gala, honeycrisp, or pink lady apples
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
Slice apples thinly and evenly, starting from the bottom. Make them as thin and even as possible — it’s best to use a mandoline if you have one.
- Remove the seeds.
- Place in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Sprinkle cinnamon and nutmeg lightly over the slices. Flip them over and do the same on the other side.
- Bake at 225ºF for 1 hour. Flip and bake for another hour. The low and slow cooking method helps to dehydrate the apples, leaving them nice and crispy!
