Baked Apple Chips

A few baked apple chips in front of a bowl of sliced apples and cinnamon sticks

Baked Apple Chips with a light cinnamon sugar dusting, a great sweet treat when your craving a sweet treat!

Well the weather is finally beautiful around here, in fact I am sitting in my house right now as I right this with the windows open and a cool breeze gently coming in. HEAVEN!

Tomorrow we plan on going to the pumpkin patch by our house. They have tons of pumpkins in all different sizes,  a chili cook off, pony rides, and inflatables for the kiddos. Personally I just can’t wait to put Cason in the middle of the pumpkins and take pictures! Yippee! I mean really kids are so cute surrounded by a bunch of squash, right? 🙂

With all the fall festivities I thought I would whip up some fall inspired snacks.


I saw a couple of friends of mine post recipes on baked apple chips and I wanted to give them a try. When I saw the pictures and recipes I thought that they would be crunchy like a chip, but they actually tasted more like dehydrated apples.  The slight hint of the cinnamon sugar mixture placed on top was a perfect sweet addition to these apple chips.

To get started, preheat oven to 200º. Core 3 small gala apples using an apple corer and thinly slice.

  1. I tried the recipe but was left with non crunchy/dehydrated textured apple chips. I read the recipe through 2 or 3 times and followed it. Any ideas why I didn’t get the crispy apple chip result? Thanks:) Jake

    1. Hey Jake,
      Yeah, I had the same outcome. I think I was expecting crunchy apple chips too, took a while to get use to but they were still good.

      I am actually going to try it again to see if I can make them crunchier too. My guess for making them crunchier would be to slice them paper thin {almost using a mandoline board} and then cook them for a little longer. I looked at some other recipes and it said the same thing. πŸ™‚ We are in this one together. If you find something that works too, totally let me know! πŸ™‚


  2. These look great – bet my family would love them. BTW – your cored apples look perfect. I recently made a apple gratin and used a paring knife to core them and they looked so hacked up. Share your secret?

    1. Secret is… ready… an apple corer from Bed, Bath, and Beyond for $7.99. πŸ™‚ I was way to lazy to try and figure out how to do it with a paring knife. But best invest ever! I have used it 3x already since buying it a month ago. πŸ™‚ Hope you and the fam enjoy these yummy chips! BTW the apple gratin sounds amazing!

    1. Thanks Tamara! Its a perfect fall time treat! Hope you get a chance to try it and thanks for stopping by!

    Hi Krista! These look so fantastic, I really want to try them! Cason looks just too cute for words and he’ll steal the the pumpkin patch show! πŸ™‚ Thank you so much for joining us and sharing at Best of the Weekend! Pinning and buffering! Have a happy Sunday!

    1. You definitely should. I tried them because I saw them on someone else page, and so glad I did. πŸ™‚

      Thanks on the cuteness compliments for my little guy! I mean, I know he’s adorable {but i’m bias bc I’m the momma..hehe}, but its always nice to hear when other people think he is too. Thanks for the pinning and sharing!

    These look delicious! I love your photos, too. I have got to make some of these soon. Your little guy is so cute. Mine are too old for pumpkin patches now — that used to be one of my favorite things in the fall!

    1. Thanks Marcie, your too sweet! πŸ™‚ Love seeing that little guy grow up, now whenever I take pictures he pulls himself up on the chair to see what mommy is doing on the table! Has to help cook and be a part of the photo shoot. πŸ™‚ How old are your kiddo?

    1. We were in the same boat, I was wanting to make them too. Once I finally did I was so glad! πŸ™‚ Hope you enjoy them too my friend!

  8. You just reminded me that I have been wanting to do this. I had made the pear ones but have yet to do it with all these apples I have here. I know what I’ll be doing this afternoon.

    1. haha.. glad I can be a friendly reminder. πŸ™‚ I saw the pear ones you made, looked delicious and super crunchy!
