This week I am so excited to share with you this recipe for Baked Apple Chips! When I first saw this recipe linked up on Make Bake Create, I knew that I had to try it. First it’s simple, you will likely already have the ingredients on hand! Plus, what a wonderful snack or lunch item for the kids!
I love that by making these myself, I know exactly what is in them instead of buying them at the store full of preservatives.
Even better for me was that my son was so excited to help me make these. He is an extremely picky eater, so I was happy that he was getting involved with baking these and hoped that would help him enjoy them and at least try them.
The recipe is simple and all you need is some parchment paper, apples, cinnamon, and a little cookie cutter to cut the center out of the apples. The hardest part for me was getting the apples sliced thin enough so ours were a little bit more thick than I would of liked but still delicious!
Also, it’s a good idea to be sure and check them around 1 hour and 45 minutes because my first batch was done before 2 hours even though the original recipes bakes them up to 2 hours and 15 minutes. Most likely it’s going to depend on just how hot your oven gets, so be sure and just keep a close eye on them because cook time may vary.
We used a star cookie cutter for the core of ours and it was the perfect job for my little man. He went to town cutting out the centers.
Now, this is the fun part…these don’t need to be perfect. All you need to do is have fun with your kids and for me that meant just letting him cut them out and not worrying about how ‘picture’ perfect they actually are. They turned out fabulous and it was a great way to enjoy an afternoon with my son. We talked about apples, cooking, and baking so it turned into a nice learning time for him!

Baked Apple Chips
- 2 Red Apples
- Also Needed:
- Parchment Paper
- Mini Cookie Cutter
- Cookie Sheet
- Preheat oven to 275*.
- Begin by slicing the applies in half then slicing them as thin as possible.
- Next use the cookie cutter and cut the core or the center out, be sure to get all the seeds out too.
- Place each apple slice on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
- Once the cookie sheet is full sprinkle cinnamon evenly over the applies. This took about 1-2 Tbsp of cinnamon for me but will vary.
- Place them on the top rack in the oven to bake for 1 hour.
- After 1 hour, remove them and turn them over carefully, bake for another 1 hour up to 1 hour and 15 minutes.
- I would suggest checking them after 45 minutes on each side to be sure they do not overcook.
