This week’s edition of Our Project 52 theme is Green. I’m sharing my Apple Chips Recipe because of course I used green apples and some red ones too.
While strolling through Marshalls, Sugar Plum Z and I discovered baked apple chips. We really enjoyed eating the
three four bags we bought. They have also been a lifesaver for when we are on the go and my little sometimes eater decides she is hungry. Of course after I’ve asked her 100 times. She loves a variety of food but she is either eating today or not eating today. I guess it depends on the weather. Anyway, these apple chips have worked out great but even at the Marshalls discount, they are pretty pricey. I decided to stash a few bags for the car but I also started making them at home and they are a big hit.
This apple corer from Ikea is great. The Spritta kit comes with a zester and a balling tool too.
Don’t worry about perfection. Just make sure your slices are as even and thin as possible. Mine were not but they still came out excellent. I just added a little more bake time.
The next time we make them, I will be sure to sprinkle some herbs and spices on top for even more flavor. We love all things apple and I can’t wait for apple season to roll back in so we can head out to the orchids again. In the meantime this apple chips recipe joins the archives along with my banana apple bread and apple tart recipes.

Her mouth is full and she is happy. So much so I made these again the next day at her request. Moms keep on trying different recipes for your little ones. You never know what will be a big hit. You will be surprised at how changing your cooking method might work.
