When choosing your apples, go for the darker-skinned types, such as Fuji or Red Delicious for more health benefits.


  • 4 (or more) apples (washed and dried)
  • Cinnamon (to taste)
  • Sweetener of choice (optional)
  • Sugar-free gelatin (optional)


  1. Core apples and then slice them thinly into chips, starting from bottom to top.
  2. Lay flat, without overlapping, on cookie sheets lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle each chip with a bit of cinnamon and sweetener (if desired) or sugar-free gelatin.
  3. Set oven at 140 F. If your oven doesn’t go that low, set at lowest setting and prop oven door open about an inch at the top with a folded pot holder.
  4. Put cookie sheets in the oven and let dry 4 to 7 hours (or leave in overnight) depending on how crispy versus chewy you want them.
  5. Let cool and store in a freezer bag.
