DIY Apple Chips

I know that making your own "chips" are healthier than buying them at the store, but until now I have always thought it was "easier" to do just that.  Now I see that I can make all kinds of chips myself without breaking a sweat.
These Apple Chips are much better than those you get at the store, or at least cheaper than those from say a Health Food Store.  If you are into these types of snacks, check it out.

These light, bake-and-take snacks are great for any occasion!  I can see these in school or work lunches too.

  • 1 apple, any type
  • 1 tsp. Cinnamon-Vanilla Seasoning Blend
Preheat oven to 225° F.
Attach apple (no need to core) to the Mandolin food guider, set round knob to #2 for thicker slices, or #1 for thinner slices.*
Place apple slices on two baking sheets lined with parchment paper or Silicone Wonder Mat and sprinkle with seasoning blend.
Bake both sheets at the same time, on upper and lower racks, 45 minutes.
Flip slices and bake another 45 minutes. For thicker slices, more baking time may be necessary. 
Monitor throughout baking and remove chips once they crisp up and lose their moisture.
Cool on a cooling rack until chips are crisp and store in a Modular Mates® Container.

*The thicker #2 slices take longer to bake, but it is easier on #2 for beginners. 
As you get used to using your Mandolin, #1 is recommended as chips bake faster.

So many things you can do with the Mandolin, and this is just with apples, it is the perfect piece for every kitchen!
Check it out on my Tupperware Site and I can see all kinds of "chips" in your future!
