Apple season is finally upon us, and if you're anything like me, you are probably already thinking of ways that you can use up all the sweet, tart, juicy and delicious apples you plan to buy this fall. You can fry them with this fried apples recipe, you can freeze them with apple recipes for the freezer, and you can use them as a topping for oatmeal. You can eat them straight or bake them into these Baked Apple Chips.
There are so many ways to prepare apples, and they go perfectly with any meal or even in between meals.
For example, it's 3 p.m. and you have those mid-afternoon munchies. Do you grab some potato chips and soda? Do you try to ignore them until dinner time finally rolls around?
Apples are the perfect solution, especially if you make these Baked Apple Chips. Unlike potato chips, which are fried in plenty of unhealthy oils and served up with a big helping of trans fats, preservatives, salt and empty calories, apple chips are made with just three ingredients–apples, sugar and cinnamon–so you can actually feel good about eating them. Plus, they are delicious as well!
Not only will you love these Baked Apple Chips, but your kids are sure to love them as well. Wean them off of the chips and candy with these healthy and delicious apple chips. They won't mind eating healthy food when they taste like this.
I like the tartness of Granny Smith apples when I make these, but you may prefer a slightly different taste. Go ahead and experiment with different types of apples to see which taste everyone likes best, whether sweet or tart. Be sure to make plenty; they are sure to go fast!
