These apple chips are as close to eating a fresh apple slice as it gets! Since the apple chips are dried in the oven, they are crunchy like a potato chip, but they definitely pack a lot more nutrition. Dried apple slices sprinkled with cinnamon are high in fiber, which will help you feel full longer. They are also loaded with Vitamin C, which is great for immune boosting. Not to mention the antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties of cinnamon. All around they are good for you, just don’t tell the kids!

I just think this Apple Corer is just simply awesome. It is the one I used for the pictures in this post. It is great because then you can slice the apples in perfect rings using a knife or mandolin. However, I also love this apple peeler and slicer. I only have to dirty one tool and I have to admit, it’s kind of fun to watch them peel and slice! You will use this and then cut them in half which would give you half-moon shaped chips, but they will still taste amazing. It doesn’t matter which one you get, but I do suggest you get one or the other. It will make your life much easier when making this apple chips recipe.

What apples are best for apple chips?

To make apple chips you want an apple that is going to hold up to being dried and also have some natural sweetness. Golden Delicious, Gala, Fuji, and Pink Lady apples tend to have the best results. My favorite apple usually is the Golden Delicious or Gala, both of which are usually pretty easy to find at the grocery store.

If you want a tart dried apple Granny Smith and Macintosh are great options. Honestly, though, any kind of apple will work, the end flavor and texture will just vary. Just keep in mind that the dried version will be a more intense flavor than the fresh version.

How long do dried apple slices last?

If you’ve dried your apples completely, they will stay in an airtight container is cool, dry place, between 6 and 12 months. We’ve never been able to keep ours that long because the kids gobble them up pretty quickly!
