Spiced Apple Pie Chips



Today the stars must have been aligned because I had an all around awesome day. It was a nice contrast to yesterday because yesterday I felt like I was going to pull my hair out and I had all these weird issues creep up. Today, however, was a great day. :) Lots of work accomplished, some successful recipe attempts, a great 4 mile run, and time spent with loved ones!

It is also a great day when your kitchen smells like warm apple pie…


Spiced Apple Pie Chips

Chewy, slightly crunchy, tangy, yet sweet and spicy. The perfect healthy Fall snack to throw in your lunch bag or give as a gift to loved ones.

Adapted from here.


  • 3 Granny Smith apples
  • Lemon juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • Sprinkle of sea salt (optional)


Directions: Line a baking sheet with parchment or line a dehydrator sheet with parchment. If using an oven and not a dehydrator, preheat oven to 150F. In a small bowl mix together the cinnamon and sugar. Set aside. Slice granny smith apples into very thin slices approx 1/8-1/4 of an inch in width. Leave skin on. You may use a mandoline if you have one. One apples are sliced place them into a medium sized bowl and squeeze fresh lemon juice over top. Line up the slices on the baking sheet, making sure they do not overlap. Grab the sugar mixture and sprinkle over top of each slice. Now take a tiny pinch of sea salt and sprinkle very lightly over top. You may skip this step but I like a bit of salt to bring out the sweetness of the apple, however it might not be for everyone. Place into the oven or dehydrator at 150F. I dried the apples in a dehydrator at 150F for approximately 3.5-4 hours. Flip the apple slices every half hour to ensure even cooking. I am not sure how long an oven would take, but you can play around with it, checking them often when you flip them every half hour. They are ready when they are curled up a bit at the sides and a bit crisp yet still chewy. You can cook them to suit your needs!


These chips were quite easy to make!

Just slice up some apples…


Coat in lemon juice to prevent browning…



Lay on baking sheet or dehydrator sheet lined with a non-stick mat or parchment:


Sprinkle with cinnamon & sugar…




Spread it around with your fingers a bit.


And place in oven or dehydrator, flipping every 30 minutes.


After about 3.5-4 hours in my dehydrator at 150F. You can also bake them in the oven too!


This is really exciting.

If you are feeling really crazy, you can try brushing some melted Earth Balance or butter on top before sprinkling on the sugar & cinnamon. I bet that would taste great!


Wouldn’t these Apple Pie Chips make a fun gift?


I cannot contain my excitement. The 80 year old grandma in me is waiting to bust out!!


For some reason I wasn’t expecting these to taste as good as they did! They really knocked my socks off. Very chewy, a bit tart, and spicy & sweet on top. Amazing. :)

Next time I will probably triple the batch. :)


I’m off to snuggle up with Sketchie & Eric and watch some NCIS.

Have a great night! :)

I would take those over potato chips every time.


Maria @ Oh Healthy Day October 21, 2010

I think we just found falls’ equivalent to summer’s kale chips. And I’m pretty sure I’ll like these a ton more too :)

Beautiful photography!


claire October 21, 2010

What a beautiful snack!


Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday October 21, 2010

TIP: You can also string them and hang them in a cool dry place if you don’t have a dehydrator.


Melissa October 21, 2010

Your photography is extra beautiful today, Angela! I’ve been making pumpkin butter at least once a week ever since you posted that recipe and every time I do, my house smells wonderful! :)

Allie (Live Laugh Eat) October 21, 2010

Liz @ LBBakes October 21, 2010

Yum! Those look so delicious, perfect fall treat.


Jessica@tastyandtrim October 21, 2010

Those both look and sound delicious! I’m an apple fanatic, so those are right up my alley. I would rather munch on a bowl of apple chips than potato chips!


lisasfoods October 21, 2010

Thanks for the recipe. I’ve been wanting to experiment with my new food dehydrator, so these will go onto my list. I was going to make some plain ones, but maybe I’ll make a second batch with sugar and cinnamon. Mmm.


lizlivingvegan October 21, 2010

Oh my gosh! Those look so amazing! I wish I had a dehydrator but ill definitely try them in the oven. I love finding new apple recipes! How do you think these would work with red apples, like johnathan apples?


Angela (Oh She Glows) October 22, 2010

Im not sure but the original recipe said any type of apple works :)


Kelsey @ CleanTeenKelsey October 21, 2010

These look so amazing! I think the lowest my oven goes is 200 degrees. I hope that will work, haha.


Jessica @ How Sweet It Is October 21, 2010

That last picture is SO pretty!


Tiffany @ Eat, Run, Write, Love October 21, 2010

These look so delicious Angela — and I love how they look all stacked up in the jar :)


Hope October 21, 2010

Oh my. Oh my my my!! This recipe knocked my socks off! I must make these asap!


Allie October 21, 2010

oh yes- I’ll definitely have to try these out- sweet potato chips are my current favorite but these might just edge those out :-P


Wei-Wei October 21, 2010

Mmmmmm. Delicious. I tried making apple chips before but it failed miserably and they stuck :(


Maria October 21, 2010

Stop making such fabulous food that I want to eat ridiculous amounts of! Just kidding, please continue providing me with such great food porn and recipes :D


Jolene (www.everydayfoodie@hotmail.com) October 21, 2010

The apple chips are very pretty Angela!!!! They would be a fabulous hostess gift!


Bridget October 21, 2010

Those are some of the most beautiful looking apple chips I have seen! Most of the time they are all crumbly lookin’ but these are just perrrrrrfection!


Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) October 21, 2010

I love dehydrating apples with cinny & brown sugar, or zucchini’s with nooch, for apple or zuke chips but honestly my fave thing…is banana chips. I make my banana chips like you made the apples, with cinnamon & I use brown sugar…or just leave them plain. ACtually plain dehyd’ed bananas are so awesome to me and I am not even that huge of a banana lover. But dehyd them…and Im in heaven.

Btw I think I just noticed your button/banner on the right hand side of your site..by sponsors. Your GloBakery button. Not sure if it’s new or not, but I just noticed it :) Cute!


Wendy October 21, 2010

If you’re baking them, how long should they be in the oven for?


Angela (Oh She Glows) October 22, 2010

In the original recipe (its linked) I think he baked in oven them at 225 for 1.5-2 hours :)


Maddie October 21, 2010

What a perfect fall snack! I will have to try making these soon. Would they work with other types of apples too? Beautiful photography by the way!


Angela (Oh She Glows) October 22, 2010

I’m sure they would! In the original recipe it said any type of apples. I likes grannies b/c they are tart and it is a wonderful contrast to the sweet cinnamon sugar.


Moni'sMeals October 21, 2010

Yes! what a great snack that I can make-no problem. Great idea Angela.
Fall we love you.
Your pics are so refreshing as always…. ahhh


Camille October 21, 2010

These look insane delicious!


Janiek @ abrandnewchange October 22, 2010

I love apple chips, I wanted to make these myself too but somehow, I’m too scared beacause I think they will burn!:P You can buy them in the grocery store but it’s much more fun making them yourself!




Erika @ Health and Happiness in LA October 22, 2010

I loooove dehydrated apple chips. They’re one of my favorite things to make. You should try dehydrating kiwi slices, too!


Jo @ JAGS Fitness Blog October 22, 2010

So simple yet so delicious! Can’t wait to try them :)


Casey Thomas October 22, 2010

These look amazing! Thanks for sharing Angela.

I made similar for festive presents last year with stevia as the sweetener and kept them raw by using a dehydrator.



lillasn1gel October 22, 2010

Started reading your blog a few days back. Love it!

These look delicious. Can’t wait to try them!


JL goes Vegan October 22, 2010

I’ve been dehydrating apples like mad (’tis the season) and using cinnamon. Didn’t even think to add sugar because they are so naturally sweet. You didn’t find them too sweet? Might have to consider a little sugar, too!
