Baked apple chips are super easy, crisp, and healthy! A spiralizer makes slicing the apples a breeze and ensures they’re of a consistent thinness. A simple shake of cinnamon and sugar are all you need to flavor this snack favorite!

Preheat oven to 250°F and line a baking sheet or two with parchment paper. Set aside.
Spiralize apples using the large core slicing blade. Alternatively, you can use a mandoline. The key is that you want the apple slices to be the same thickness.
If using a spiralizer, cut down into one half of the spiralized apple using a paring knife to separate the apple slices into singular rings. Place slices into a bowl.
Mix sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl. Sprinkle cinnamon/sugar mixture over the spiralized apple slices, tossing them gently in the bowl to ensure they're coated evenly.
Place slices in a single layer with a little bit of space between them on the lined baking sheet.
Bake for one hour, and then flip each apple slice over. You'll notice the apple slices will begin to look curled around the edges. Once flipped, bake for another hour, and then shut the oven off. Let apple chips sit in the (now, off) oven until mostly cooled. This crisps them up!
Store in an airtight container for up to several days.
This recipe is easily scaleable. One spiralized apple uses 1 tsp granulated sugar + 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon. Increase appropriately!
