How to make Cinnamon Apple Chips

To make cinnamon apple chips start by coring the apples and slicing them thinly. Next, sprinkle with cinnamon, nutmeg and a few drops of lemon to make each slice flavorful and fragrant. Bake for at least 2 hours or until dry and super crispy.


Tips for making Homemade Apple Chips

– Use a variety of apple that is naturally sweet as the recipe does not call for sugar. Wisconsin, Honeycrisp, Pink Lady or Fuji apples are the best for making homemade chips.

– You can use a mandoline to thinly and evenly cut the apple slices.

– If you're in a hurry, you can use your Airfryer. Toss the apple slices with cinnamon, nutmeg and lemon drops, then place them in a single layer in the basket and cook for about 10-15 minutes, flipping them halfway through cooking. Don't overcrowd the basket and be sure to work in batches.

– For a sweeter flavor, toss the apple slices with sugar before baking.

How to store Cinnamon Apple Chips

These cinnamon apple chips can be stored for a week in a cool, dry place.



Wash the apples very well and remove the stem.


Core the apple, removing the stem. Cut thinly the apple into 1/4-inch thick slices.


Sprinkle the slices with a few drops of lemon, cinnamon and nutmeg. Preheat the oven to 100°F and line a baking tray with waxed paper or a silicone blanket. Place the slices on the tray avoiding sticking.


Bake for at least 2 hours at very low temperature. After an hour, turn the apple slices until they are completely dry. Turn off the oven and let the apple slices cool. Serve and enjoy!
