Spiced Apple Chips from Victoria Nieveen

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
  1. 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.
  2. Remove the seeds.
  3. Place in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  4. Sprinkle cinnamon and nutmeg lightly over the slices. Flip them over and do the same on the other side.
  5. 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!
