Baked Apple Chips (GF, V)
I sometimes think I could subsist on snacks, but then sense kicks in and I know that thankfully it’s just a temporary phase. The fact still remains that I do get these cravings, usually at tea time for something crunchy to munch on.
  1. Mix the sugar and cinnamon powder in a small bowl and keep aside. Line your baking trays with parchment paper or aluminium foil. Now lightly sprinkle half of the cinnamom-sugar evenly on the prepared trays.
  2. Wash and dry the apples. Cut off a thin slice off the top and the bottom of each apple. Slice them as thinly as you can, using a sharp knife or a mandoline. You may choose to core the apples before slicing them. I didnu2019t because I like the pretty flower-like pattern the seeds make in the baked chips.
  3. You can use lemon juice here to prevent the slices from discoloring. I didnu2019t find the need to do so. And the chips turn brown with cinnamon and the baking anyways.
  4. Lay the slices in a single layer, close to each other, on top of the sugar sprinkled trays. Sprinkle the remaining sugar evenly on the apple slices.
  5. Bake them at 120C (250F) for about 2 hours till theyu2019re dry and crisp. This recipe makes a big bowl full of apple chips.
  6. If you can resist eating them all, store in an airtight container. Baked apple chips can also be used to decorate desserts.
