These easy to make, Baked Apple Chips are crunchy with just a touch of sweetness. Perfect as an after school snack or that late night snack attack!
School has been back in session for over a month now, and both kids have an early lunch this year. Even though I send extra snacks in their lunch boxes, they seem to be hungrier than ever when they get home. One of our favorite snacks of late are these baked apple chips. They’re perfect for this time of year with apples being in season, plus they give off such a delicious cinnamony-apple scent, it makes the whole house smell like fall.
The apple chips are really easy to make. I like to toss them in the oven while making my lunch and they’ll be ready when the kids get home from school. (If you can keep yourself from eating them all, that is!) Want more healthy snacks? See them here.
The apple chips are good for more than after school snacks, of course – they’re crunchy and slightly sweet so if you are trying to satisfy that late evening snack craving these are the perfect solution!
Recipe tip: The thinner you can slice the apples, the crispier they will be. I used a mandoline to get my super thin.
