Easy Apple Chips – quick blog

Standard

This week we got our box of fruits & vegetables from Klesick Family Farm and it included some lovely organic apples. I already had a bag on hand from my Safeway delivery the week before (and they were starting to look a smidge tired, so I thought I would try something new). I saw a recipe on Pinterest for Apple Chips and gave them a whirl.  Here is what you need:

3-4 apples (washed/cored)

Cinnamon

Easy huh!? Just slice the apples about the thickness that you get from pinching two fingers together (the distance between the tips of your nails, scientific huh?). Spread them on the baking sheet (the recipe says to use parchment paper, but I didn’t have any and it was fine- i just removed them with a spatula fresh from the oven with no trouble) and sprinkle with Cinnamon. Bake at 275 *F for two hours…. and Voila! They smell delicious while baking and are a very healthy snack. I tried one warm and it tastes a  lot like apple pie. MMMMMM~!Image

They would probably look a little prettier if I owned an apple corer. But I just used a regular knife to cut out the core and push it through and it worked just fine. Enjoy!

About hobbymamma

I'm a mother of the marvelous Olivia (age 7), the adorable Cooper (almost 3) and Wyatt (6 months). As a busy SAHM (& wife to Tyson aka 'Sarge'), I find myself with irons in many fires. Some of my time is also devoted to voluntary services for various non-profit organizations. The idea for this blog came from something I find myself thinking or saying rather often lately: I have so many interests & hobbies that I don't consider myself 'expert' at any of them. It can be frusterating on occasion, but mostly I find it refreshing and rewarding to enjoy such variety. On this blog I share bits and hints about some of the hobbies I currently enjoy. When considering some of my favorite hobbies - i've discovered that a theme that threads through many of them is green. Not necessarily the color (that too) but 'green practices'. I often find myself thinking, how can I make this more environmentally friendly. What ingredients or products are better for my family and the beautiful planet where we live. I hope you will enjoy reading about some of my hobbies and be inspired to try something new!
