3 Best of the Bushel Apple Snacks Prep

Apple Chips

These light, bake-and-take snacks are great for any occasion!

1 apple, any type
1 tsp. Cinnamon-Vanilla Seasoning Blend

1. Preheat oven to 225° F/107° C
2. Attach apple (no need to core) to the food guider, set round knob to #2 for thicker slices, or #1 for thinner slices.*
3. Place apple slices on two baking sheets lined with parchment paper and sprinkle with seasoning blend.
4. Bake both sheets at the same time, on upper and lower racks, 45 minutes.
5. Flip slices and bake another 45 minutes. For thicker slices, more baking time may be necessary. Monitor throughout baking and remove chips once they crisp up and lose their moisture.
6. Cool on a cooling rack until chips are crisp and store in a Modular Mates® Container.

*The thicker #2 slices take longer to bake, but it is easier on #2 for beginners. As you get used to using your Mandoline, #1 is recommended as chips bake faster.

Note: Substitute Cinnamon-Vanilla Seasoning Blend with equal amounts of your favorite cinnamon-sugar blend.
