Since my due date is during prime apple picking season, I'm going to miss doing it at the local orchard this year. (But I did get to go peach picking!!) It's a family tradition that we all go every year, so I'm sort of bummed that I won't get to participate. I guess the reason why I can't go is somewhat of a good one, though :) Plus, it didn't stop me from trying out some fun fall apple recipes!
I'm always looking for new ways to use the apples we pick, and this recipe is definitely a winner. I'll have to remember it for when we go next year. Apple chips are a healthy and flavorful snack to munch on in place of processed snacks from the grocery store. They are delicious plain, but you can also eat them alongside ice-cream for a little crunch. Enjoy!
- 3 medium sized apples
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 tbsp. ground cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp. nutmeg
Pre-heat your oven to 250 degrees F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
Core the apples and slice as thin as possible (use a mandolin, if possible).
Combine the sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a small bowl. Sprinkle the mixture over both sides of each apple. Place in a single layer on the prepared baking sheets.
Bake in the oven for about 45 minutes. Flip the apples and continue baking for an additional 45 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
Serve them alongside ice-cream or munch on them by themselves.
