Baked apple chips are so simple to make at home! Crispy and delicious, these apple chips are amazing!
Apple chips have always been one of my favorite things throughout the year, but especially during the fall. When the apples are in season, I think that these apple chips are even better than any other time of the year! Therefore, I make them, and make them, and make them until I’m sure if I make them one more time my family will start a petition against me.
Luckily for me though, they’ve yet to do that! I think they love them as much as I do!
To make my baked apple chips, I slice them incredibly thin – about an 1/8th of an inch to be exact. I’ve found that the thinner that I slice them, the crispier they are when baked and stay crispier, too! I use my mandoline (carefully!) to get my apple slices this thin. If you decide to slice them any thicker, just increase the baking time to make sure they are baked throughout.
I also do not peel or core my apples, but of course you can if you prefer.
Here’s my baked apple chips recipe. I hope y’all love them as much as I do!
Baked Apple Chips Recipe
- 2 medium apples sliced 1/8-inch thick
- ground cinnamon optional
- granulated sugar optional
- Preheat oven to 225º F. Line two rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper. Arrange apple slices on sheet pans in a single layer. If using cinnamon and sugar, combine together in a small bowl and sprinkle over top apple slices. Place sheet pans in preheated oven and bake 45 minutes, flip apple slices over and bake another 30 minutes or until crisp. Store in an airtight container for up to a week.
Instead of cinnamon and sugar, sprinkle apples with apple pie spice.

What a simple and healthy snack! And I like that they can be made in small batches. I’ve always wanted to attempt my own apple chips but never have. I feel like I have no excuse now!
Yes! I love to make them in small batches, too! But, they definitely disappear pretty quickly around here! xo
Wow! You’re a genius! I would to try these out
I hope you enjoy them, Mary Frances!
Didn’t crisp up. Baked for 2 hours. Good taste though. Is 225 the right temperature?
Oh no! I always bake mine at 225º F for the time given. Now, if they are sliced thicker, then mine do take longer. Were yours 1/8-inch thick?
Omg.. I just made a batch of these and I couldn’t stop eating them. Luckily they are good for me too. Who knew something so simple could taste so good!! Thanks for the recipe!
I’m so glad you love them, Tracey! They are one of my favorite things to make and snack on so I stay out of the cookies! 🙂
This is so much better to making them versus buying them
at Costco at $8 something a bag.Costco also has many different kinds
of apples in their bags,which some I didn’t care for.
I’VE ALWAYS WANTED TO TRY THESE BUT THOUGHT I NEEDED A FOOD DEHYDRATOR MACHINE THINGY! I’M AN APPLE PIE SNOB AND ONLY LIKE TO USE MACINTOSH SO…WHAT DO YOU RECOMMEND FOR BAKED APPLE CHIPS? THE PICTURE LOOKS LIKE A GRANNY SMITH.
Robyn, I love your blog! Thanks for sharing all these simple and amazing recipes! For sure I’ll give a try to these delicious and healthy chips! 🙂
Do you think this would work with stevia? I try to make everything I can sugar-free. Thanks for the advice!
You can even omit the sugar if you wish since it’s optional. I’ve not tried these with stevia so I can’t say how they taste, but I’d love to hear if you try it. Thanks so much! xo
First try, it didn’t crisp up and I didn’t peel which did not soften, adding hard peel to the wired texture, so sad but will try again maybe a different type of apple, not all of them are in season what are most popular I should try?
I’m sorry this didn’t crisp for you, Daniela. I’ve always had good results with this recipe. You can use any apple that’s in season or you favorite apple. Thanks!
