I’m always looking for easy and fairly healthy snack ideas, like these apple chips, for my kids to enjoy after school, if it were up to them they would inhale a plate of triple chocolate brownies and never think twice. Having healthy snacks on hand is always a good idea, we like to make homemade applesauce fruit leather too! They love both of these recipes!
These apple chips are pretty darn easy to make, and boy do they make your house smell good too! This is one of those recipes that my kids can make on their own too, I just have to supervise when they’re cutting the apples! It’s a great recipe to start them out helping with in the kitchen because of how simple it is.
My youngest kiddo loves to take these in his lunch and says that all the kids ask to try them. They’re just a fun snack to make and eat!
How to Make Homemade Apple Chips
Ingredients You Need
- 2 Apples
- 3 TBSP Sugar
- 1 tsp Cinnamon
- Non-Stick Spray
- Apple Corer
Instructions for making
Start by coring your apples, I picked up a very inexpensive apple corer last time I was out shopping and it works great! Next, slice your apples thinly to form round chips and place them in a bowl. Add the sugar and cinnamon and toss to cover the apples. Spray a cookie sheet with the non-stick spray and place the apples on the cookie sheet, spread out as much as possible. Bake at 200 degrees for 2 hours. Enjoy!
