Cinnamon Apple Crisps (Gluten Free)

I had an abundance of apples which needed using up (I hate wasting food) and wanted to do something other than stewing them, I thought about making crisps with them and after a few attempts (thank goodness I had lots) this is the recipe I ended up with.

Cinnamon apple crisps

These are great as a snack or crumbled over yoghurt and berries.  Be warned though, if you’re like me, once you start eating them it’s hard to stop.

Now, it may be June but while these apple crisps are cooking, your house will smell of Christmas!

These crisps do take a while to cook so it may be best doing a big batch on a rainy day then you will have healthy snacks at the ready when you’re heading out and about.

Ingredients

-2 apples, unpeeled, topped & tailed

-juice of 1/2 lemon

-1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon

Cin apple crisps

How To Make

Pre-heat oven to 100C/215F.  Place a wire rack over a baking sheet.

Either using a mandolin or a sharp knife, slice the apples through the core very thinly.  You don’t want the slices paper-thin but not too thick either.  My mandolin has 3 thickness settings, number 3 being the thickest and this is the one I use.

Place the apple slices in a bowl and pour over the lemon juice.  Toss gently with your hands so each apple slice is coated.

Lay the apple slices on the wire rack in a single layer.

Sprinkle half the cinnamon powder over the apple slices, then flip them over and sprinkle over the remaining cinnamon powder.  I use a tea strainer for this as it helps give a light dusting.

Place the apple slices in the oven and bake for 1 hour.  After 1 hour, flip the slices over and bake for a further hour.

Once the apple slices are cooked remove from the oven and allow to cool.

These keep well in an airtight container for a few days.

Enjoy 🙂
