It’s starting to feel a tiny bit like fall here on the east coast–harbinger of apple picking and pumpkins galore.
I visited an amazing local farmer’s green market around the corner last week and was greeted with a cornucopia of fresh produce–locally grown. The apples were just too impressive to pass up. Instead of my normal morning workout, simply carrying two bags of apples was all that I needed to break a sweat.
With all those apples, I was compelled to bake some apple chips.
This recipe is super easy and really only requires one ingredient: apples. We used Red Delicious apple sand a Gala apples but, really, any variety is fine. The key is to slice the apples as thin as possible. We used our handy OXO Mandolin to get perfectly even slices.
Next, just lay your slices on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. We chose to sprinkle our slices with some cinamon and sugar too before we let them bake in the oven for approximately one hour.
While baking, the sweetest smells of fall will waft throughout your kitchen.
After an hour, just loosen the apples from the paper and cook them for another 2-3 minutes and you’re resdy to enjoy the most delicious apple-based snack.
But, we now have a new (healthy) snack that we can make on a moment’s notice.
