I don't often eat sweet foods but after dinner one night this week I feel like something sweet but was trying not be tempted to pop to the local shop and buy a chocolate or packet of sweets.
I had seen this idea on a blog recently and decided to give it a try. My craving passed after about half an hour ( it always does) as the apples take quite a while to cook but I still enjoyed these "chips" and my husband tucked in as well. I used 3 green granny smith apples and it made quite a large portion. All you need is apples and cinnamon.
1. You core the three apples (my corer is in storage so I just cut around the core) and cut thin slices of the apple.
2. Place on a baking sheet or oven safe dish.
3. Sprinkle with cinnamon to your desire. The original recipe I saw added sugar, I added 1 tsp first time round but then made another batch later in the week without sugar and they were just as yummy.
4. Cook in a preheated oven at 180 degree for 1 hour and then turn crisps for another hour. Mine only cooked for about 1 hour 45 minutes but were still delicious and I stored them to eat for the rest of the week.
Note: Remember that just like dried fruit, these apple chips do contain sugar in the form of fructose and so you should limit your portions and not eat the "chips" that come from all the apples you cooked at one time. For example if you used three apples, try eat no more than a 1/3 of the chips at one time as one 100g-150g apple = 1 adult fruit portion
