Homemade Cinnamon Spice Apple Chips

With school back in session for many of us, the anticipation of the fall is evident. My Pinterest feed is already filled with pumpkin spice treats, cute sweaters and fun fall “Must-do” lists. Though I love pumpkin spice everything, fresh apples are another of my favorite fall flavors that often gets overlooked.

Apples are so versatile for fall baking and pack a serious nutritional punch! They’re rich in fiber and vitamin C, and low in calories, making them a nutrient dense food. They are perfect paired with peanut butter, microwaved with some cinnamon, or tossed into a crumble for a slightly healthier dessert.

I love dried fruit- any type- but it is hard to find in the store without a lot of added sugar. Not to mention, dried fruit (with the exception of cranberries) isn’t cheap. One night after spiralizing some zucchini for dinner, i got the idea to spiralize an apple. I set out to make apple chips- and the result was a perfectly sweet, crunchy, and nutritious snack.

These apple chips would be perfect on top of a salad, dipped in some peanut butter for a satisfying snack, or just plain for a quick and healthy way to satisfy your sweet tooth. Check out the recipe below and let us know what you think!
