Apple Chips

APPLES are one of the foods that I EAT every. single. day. (along with carrots).

I like how crunchy and juicy they are.. mm hmm…

However, I had a couple sad looking Fuji apples in my crisper drawer. Ya know, the ones that you and your significant other or roomie just leave because neither of you wants to bite into a smushy apple?

Granted, the apples I had weren’t yet smushy per say.. Their skins just weren’t as perky as the others.

Therefore, I sliced ’em up!

This is one of the easiest snacks I have ever made.. Yes, they are time consuming, but I was delighted at the flavor these babies packed. My advice is to pop them in the oven while you do an at-home workout 🙂

Question: Ever made dry fruit? Do you have a dehydrator?

  1. Well those are a lot more beautiful and fancy than my toaster oven, apple peel version. 🙂 I think I’m just too impatient to wait! However, I have suffered through slow roasting tomatoes before, and the wait is DEFINITELY worth it in most of these situations…
