Ingredients you will need:

  • 2-3 medium washed organic apples per baking sheet
  • baking sheets or trays
  • parchment paper
  • cutting board
  • knife
  • cinnamon and sugar (optional).

Prepare your oven by heating it to 225 degrees Fahrenheit.

We used some fresh, tart heirloom Belle de Boskoop apples from the local farmer’s market. For making apple chips, it’s especially important to choose organic since you will be slicing the apples whole, including the skin – where sprays and other chemicals are most likely to collect.

STEP 1: Slice the apples into thin rounds 

Using a sharp knife, carefully slice the whole apples into thin rounds. As you cut, simply remove the stem and seeds, which should fall out onto the cutting board, and discard.

STEP 2: Arrange apple slices on a baking sheet 

Place a sheet of parchment paper on a baking sheet and arrange the raw apple slices. Sprinkle the slices with cinnamon, and with a dash of optional sugar (you don’t need it for sweetness, but I found that it helps make the chips a bit crispier).

STEP 3: Start baking your apple chips

Bake the apple chips at 225 degrees F for approximately two hours. For best results, set your time in half-hour increments and flip the chips over to ensure they crisp evenly. Since all ovens differ, you may need slightly more or less time – the simplest way to see if your chips are done is to do a taste test!


Admire your freshly baked apple chips with a star-shaped center that forms naturally due to the shape of the core. Dish up a bowl of apple chips and pass them around!

    Can you use a silicone baking mat instead of parchment paper?
