When choosing your apples, go for the darker-skinned types, such as Fuji or Red Delicious for more health benefits.
- 4 (or more) apples (washed and dried)
- Cinnamon (to taste)
- Sweetener of choice (optional)
- Sugar-free gelatin (optional)
- Core apples and then slice them thinly into chips, starting from bottom to top.
- Lay flat, without overlapping, on cookie sheets lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle each chip with a bit of cinnamon and sweetener (if desired) or sugar-free gelatin.
- Set oven at 140 F. If your oven doesn’t go that low, set at lowest setting and prop oven door open about an inch at the top with a folded pot holder.
- Put cookie sheets in the oven and let dry 4 to 7 hours (or leave in overnight) depending on how crispy versus chewy you want them.
- Let cool and store in a freezer bag.
