Apples remind me of fall. After living in the “Apple Capital of the World,” I can say I have grown to love all varieties of apples, and am drawn to anything with this pectin-filled ingredient.
For me, I think apples get pushed aside in comparison to some of the other “superfruits.” But they are an amazing source of fiber and have one of the lowest natural sugar content of all the fruits.
Additionally, they are high in Vitamin C and relatively low in calories, at about 100 calories a pop.
So combined with the warm spices of fall, I made these super simple Baked Apple Chips. The flavors remind me of diving into a freshly baked apple pie. They are great to have around when you are craving a little something sweet, and with no added sugar, you can snack without the guilt. Or chop them up and throw them in a salad for some harvest flavor!
Apple-rich in fiber, high in pectin which lowers cholesterol, excellent source of antioxidant nutrients and Vitamin C.
Cinnamon- improves the body’s ability to utilize blood sugar, and boosts brain activity

Baked Apple Chips
- 3 Red Delicious or Gala Apples (I love the red color)
- 1 1/2 tablespoons of cinnamon
- 1/2 tablespoon of apple pie spice
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 200F.Begin by coreing the apples, then slice as thin as possible. (You could also use a mandoline if you have one).
In a bowl, mix together the spices and salt. Toss the apple slices in the spice mixture to coat. Transfer the apples to a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes, check the apples, and flip them, then bake for another 30-45 minutes or until crispy. Let cool and enjoy!
