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. Is a mandoline slicer on your wish list? Check out the OXO Chef’s Mandoline!
Oh, those look yummy!
I really want a mandoline! I am NOT good with a knife. I wound up in Urgent Care once because of that!
I love chips too, and am constantly searching for healthier options. Also, we live in MA, which is apple central during the fall. And even now! We all agree on our love for apples.

I was just thinking about these chips today My kids asked for chips for snack and I thought about adding these to my shopping list. I never really thought about making my own. I will have to check this recipe out and give it a try.
Awe, I enjoy apple chips. I haven’t ever made them myself. Other than the slicing, I think my little guy would enjoy helping me make these (and then eat them).
Wow, these apple chips look really delicious. I think it would be awesome too if you add organic peanut butter to it. These snacks will keep you full longer during the day.

This is such a great idea, I love that! I need to make these, my daughter and I love anything with cinnamon or apples so this would be perfect! I need to get a mandolin or be really careful when cutting which is possible so I can try them right away. My friend has an apple tree so I have some access part of the year to freebies, gotta try this one out!
That OXO Chef’s Mandoline looks like great quality. My kids love apple chips. But you know I’ve never thought to make them apple chips. I have lots of apples in the kitchen, I think I’ll have them help me make this recipe when they get home from school. They love to cook with me.
