Baked Apple Chips
Are you looking for a kid-friendly snack that has more nutrients than his preferred junk food? No worries. Even people that do not follow a Paleo diet can enjoy these baked apple chips. Sprinkled with cinnamon, they give a pleasant taste and smell that kids enjoy. Moreover, the simple recipe makes things easy for the parents too. All you need for this recipe is:
- 2 to 3 apples;
ground cinnamon, to taste;
You can use any kind of apples for this recipe. Pick you or your child’s favorite variety, or use anything that is in season at the moment. For perfectly sliced apples you can use a mandolin to cut them. This will also save you some time. However, they turn just as delicious if they are a little bit rough around the edges. Make sure to slice them thin, though, to avoid them getting a flavorless leathery texture.
Baked Apple Chips
First of all, begin by preheating your oven to a temperature of 200 degrees F. Take two baking sheets and then line them with parchment paper. Set them aside when you are done. Cut the apples into thin slices, then spread them onto the baking sheet. Make sure there are no overlapping edges, otherwise they will stick together and they won’t dry as they should.
Sprinkle a pinch of cinnamon on top of each slice and then place the tray in the oven. Cook your apple slices for one hour, until they dry completely. If you want to store some for later, you can store them into an airtight container. In this manner they won’t become soggy. You can pack them in your kid’s lunchbox or keep them on the kitchen counter to snack on.
In conclusion, these baked apple chips are the perfect Paleo snack for the whole family, and they are also very easy to make.
