Ingredients You'll Need

  • 1-2 medium-sized apples (Pink Lady or Gala apples are recommended for a hint of sweetness)

  • 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

Getting Started

  1. Begin by washing and drying your apples thoroughly. You don't need to core or peel them, as the skin adds a nice crunch to the chips.

  2. Using a mandolin slicer or a sharp knife, cut the apples into thin slices, approximately 1/8 inch thick.

  3. Sprinkle the apple slices with a teaspoon of ground cinnamon. For those with a sweeter tooth, you can create a cinnamon sugar mixture by combining a teaspoon of cinnamon and a teaspoon of sugar.

Air Frying Process

  1. Preheat your air fryer to 380 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. Place the apple slices in the air fryer basket, ensuring they are arranged in a single layer to allow for even cooking.

  3. Cook the slices for 8-10 minutes, flipping them at the 5-minute mark. Keep a close eye on them, as cooking times may vary depending on your air fryer model.

  4. After cooking, allow the apple slices to rest for at least 5 minutes to achieve maximum crispiness. If you can resist, letting them sit for 15-30 minutes will yield even crispier results.

Pro Tips

  • You can experiment with different apple varieties to create a colorful mix of chips.

  • Don't worry about coring the apples; they turn out just fine with the cores intact.

  • To prevent burning, ensure that the apple slices do not overlap during cooking.

  • If your apple chips are burning, try lowering the temperature and checking them more frequently.

  • These homemade apple chips will firm up as they cool down. Store them in an airtight container for up to 5 days, but keep in mind that they may lose some of their crispness over time.
