Trying to help you re-think snacking over here. Just like with these ‘Best Ever Cheesy Kale Chips‘, snack solutions like these are dynamite.
The other night, my mom and I had a food prep night; we spent some time in the kitchen preparing foods that would be enjoyed throughout the week.
We made two big batches of different soups made with veggies from our FarmBox, raw apple chips, raw exotic (beet, parsnip, sweet potato) chips, and apricot almond chia pudding. Food prep nights make it possible to eat clean, delicious meals throughout the week as they bail you out of those in-a-pinch kind of days. Imagine how nice it is not to have to make dinner and just warm up a homemade soup. Or have breakfast made for two mornings in a row. Or wholesome snacks right at your fingertips.
It’s perty nice. You should try it.
To make this crunchy raw treat, all you need to do is slice the apples thinly (I used the food processor-total time saver), flavor them up with lemon and spices, and then place them in the dehydrator.
If you do not have a dehydrator, do not fret for a minute; baked apple chips are still certainly a heck of a lot better than Lay’s! You can bake the apples at 200°F for an hour on each side. I read that you can leave them in the oven after you turn it off to help them get a little extra crunchy.
Because it is necessary to crunch on these chips loud and proud. 😉
- 5 organic apples
- juice from 1 lemon
- cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice, to taste
- Core the apples and place them through the food processor to make chip slices.
- Place all ingredients in the bowl and mix so everything is distributed evenly throughout.
- Place in the dehydrator at 110 degrees overnight or for about 8-10 (until very dry).
- Store in an airtight glass container.
