Adults and kids alike will like these Easy Apple Chips! Thank you to OXO for providing the OXO Chef’s Mandoline for the purposes of this post, recipe, and review. All opinions are my own.
When I am dieting and trying to eat healthier, one of the foods that I miss the most are chips. I have tried zucchini chips in the past, but the kids weren’t too fond of them, and I wanted a snack that we could all enjoy together. My kiddos love apples, and one boy likes apples with peanut butter on top, so I thought that apple chips would be a good compromise for a healthy “chip” idea.
While I am a fairly good cook, my knife skills are considerably sub-par. I can never cut slices of fruits and veggies at an equal thickness, and more than once I’ve cut my finger. I have always wanted a mandoline; I even had one on my Christmas list last year. When I received the OXO Chef’s Mandoline, I was excited to use it for the first time to make these Easy Apple Chips.
Some recipes call for apple chips to be baked at an extremely low temperature for several hours and then left in the oven overnight, using the oven almost as a dehydrator. The recipe that I am sharing today does not follow this method, but just know that it is an option if you have the additional time.
- (4) apples
- (1) lemon
Preheat the oven to 350.
Wash each apple and cut them in half. Following the instructions via the OXO Chef’s Mandoline, set the thickness of each slice to 1/8.
Use the OXO Chef’s Mandoline to cut the apple halves into slices.
Place them in a large bowl. Juice the lemon, and pour the juice over the apples. Toss the apples to coat. On a parchment lined baking sheet, place each apple slice without overlapping. Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon on each slice.
Place the pan in the oven and bake until the edges of the apples begin to curl (about 12-15 minutes). Let cool and enjoy the snack!
I will be using the OXO Chef’s Mandoline to make sweet potato chips next. The OXO Chef’s Mandoline makes it easy to achieve precise, consistent cuts. The Mandoline Slicer can create up to 21 different cuts with thickness settings in 0.5-mm intervals, straight and wavy blades, and built-in julienne and French fry blades.
