Baked Cinnamon Apple Chips
3 apples (we like to use a mix of Granny Smith and Macintosh, but any kind will work!)
ground raw sugar (OR powdered Stevia, be sure to use less Stevia as it is stronger and sweeter!)
2 baking sheets lined with butcher paper or silicone baking mats
Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
Cut the apples into thin round slices. Place slices on the baking sheets in a single layer and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
Bake for 1 hour. Flips all the slices and continue to bake for another hour - hour and a half. If you’d like your chips on the crunchy side, leave the slices in the oven for another hour after you’ve turned it off and are letting the oven cool down. The result is a delectable treat sure to go fast!
If storing, be sure to seal these in an airtight container to preserve crispness.
