Crispy Baked Apple Chips

Baked apple chips are super easy to make at home.

Thinly sliced apples are baked at a low temperature for a few hours in your oven. Yes, it’s really that easy! Homemade baked apple chips are a delicious, naturally sweet snack. However, there are several other ways you can enjoy them. From drinks and desserts to soups and salads – the options are nearly endless.

So forget store-bought all you need is a couple apples and a couple of hours.

The best apples for making apple chips are:

  • fuji
  • gala
  • golden delicious
  • honeycrisp
  • pink lady

sliced apples

Preheat your oven to 200°.

Thinly slice the desired amount of apples. Two small to medium apples will fit on 2 standard, rimmed baking sheet pans.

For apple chips, you want the apples to be about 2-1/2 millimeters thick. The more uniform the thickness, the more evenly they will bake. I’ve linked to the mandolin slicer I have and love.

Next, toss the apples slices in the juice of 1/2 lemon (or lime works too). This is optional, but I found it does help keep them from overly browning.

Line a rimmed metal baking sheet and arrange the apple slices in an even layer.

after 1 hour baked

Bake for 1 hour. After the first hour, use oven mitts to remove the pans from the oven. Careful flip each apple slice.

after 2 hours baked

Bake for another hour.

If after 2 hours, the apples are firm but still a little bit soft, they can crisp up out of the oven while cooling. However, if the apple slices are too thick, they will need longer. I recommend to continue baking at 15 minute increments.
