Baked Apple Chips

Whilst looking at other blogs I came across a method of baking slices of apple to make apple chips.  It was so easy that I thought I would give it a go.  Teena also commented that she liked apple chips and I was curious to see what they tasted like.  You can see the original recipe from Patricia at ButterYum.

Step 1. 
Preheat Oven to 200°C / 400°F.
Slice and core apples.  I wanted to do a heart shape in the middle but was having trouble carving it out with a knife.  Then Teena came along showed me the easy way to do it using the apple corer. 

Step 2.
Arrange apples on a lightly greased baking tray.

Step 3.
Pop the tray in the oven, reduce heat to 75°C / 170°F.
Bake for 2 hours.

Our chips came out very crunchy.  You should be able to make them chewier by taking them out of the oven sooner.  I used a sweet apple, Pink Lady, and it was very tasty.  You could really taste the flavour of the apple still.  We might try it again sometime with a different type of apple, probably baking it a little less to make them a bit more chewier and a little less crunchy.


  1. Yum, apple chips are tasty! the heart cut out is a cute touch. :)

  2. I saw these on ButterYum and want to try them. I just want to wait until it cools down before having my oven on that long! Love the hearts!

  3. It's winter here atm, so the heat from the oven was welcome :)

  4. I like apple chips, but never thought to make my own. I'll give this a try, Dave. Have a great day.

  5. They look tasty and also quite lovely with the heart shape :-)

  6. These were yummy! The heart was easy, two wholes made side by side with the apple corer to form the heart cheeks, then two cuts with a small knife to form the corner. Lol. fun! <3

  7. Love the heart in the middle! This will be a hit for my 10 year old daughter, she is beginning to love our time in the kitchen and this looks just right for her to make. Thanks so much...

  8. Oh neato - so glad you tried them. I love that you used a heart shape cutter to remove the core. So cute!!
