I made some apple chips last night that I am happy to share with you as another snacking alternative. This is my first time actually making them, but not my first time consuming them. They are great for children as well.
Check out how I made these delicious treats!
Step 1 - Gather all tools and ingredients. Since this was my first attempt I only used two apples (red delicious). Three are pictured, but one was rotten. Other ingredients used: ground cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger.
Step 4 - sprinkle spices onto apple slices for desired taste. Use hands to coat evenly. Note I did not measure anything...just sprinkled and tasted. I only added spices to 1/2 of the slices just in case Caleb does not like the extra kick.
Step 6 - set dehydrator to 135 deg F (recommended for fruits and vegetables). I kept the apples in the dehydrator for 18 hours. Depending on the thickness of your slices and desired moisture level the timing could change. I wanted thin, crisp chips so 18 hours was perfect!
Step 7 - Remove chips from dehydrator
I hit a home run for my first attempt. These chips are the bomb diggy!! :) This was so easy to do and totally healthy! Another guilt free snack!
Peace and love!
