Baked Cinnamon Apple Chips With Maple Yogurt Dip

A plate of baked apple chips.

There’s a crisp in the air. The evenings are getting cooler and I’m digging out my cozy fall sweaters. Having spent the last sixteen years living in Vermont, this time of the year is one of my absolute favorites. The leaves. The layers. The flavors. It’s magic.

Apple picking is a must, and if you’re like me, the bounty is fruitful and apple pies are calling your name. Apple everything, really – apple pie, apple crisp, applesauce, an apple for breakfast, an apple with lunch, all of it.

If you’re looking for a new way to put those apples to good use, give these baked cinnamon apple chips a try. Their crunch is oh-so-satisfying, and they make for a healthy snack that sure beats a plain ol’ apple in the lunch box. And the best part? They couldn’t be easier to make.

Serve with the maple yogurt dip for a sweet little treat.

Tip: Baked apple chips are delicious and addictive and will get eaten fast. Trust me. Feel free to double or triple the apple chip recipe.

Baked Cinnamon Apple Chips

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 2 hours

Total time: 2 hours 15 minutes

Ingredients

Apple Chips:

  • Two apples (gala work great)
  • ½ teaspoon of cinnamon

Maple Yogurt Dip:

  • Three teaspoons maple syrup
  • ½ cup non-fat Greek yogurt
  • Splash of vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. Thinly slice the apples using a mandolin slicer. You can slice carefully by hand, but the mandolin makes slicing a breeze. No need to core or peel the apple.
  2. Arrange the apple slices in a single layer on two parchment-lined baking sheets. Sprinkle with cinnamon. They’ll bake down in the oven so if they’re touching or overlapping you can rearrange as needed once they bake down.
  3. Bake at 225° F for one hour. Flip the apple slices, then bake for one more hour or so, until crispy. Remove from oven and let cool.
  4. If you’re serving with the maple yogurt dip, mix the greek yogurt, maple syrup, and splash of vanilla. Pair with the apple chips and you’re good to go. Enjoy.
