Are Microwave Apple Chips Healthy?

Cinnamon sugar apple chips made in the microwave are a super healthy and addictive snack. Unlike store bought apple chips, these crispy dried apple chips are baked right in the microwave instead of fried in fattening oil. And with a simple sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar they’re bound to satisfy your sweet tooth without derailing your diet.

Can You Make Cinnamon Sugar Apple Chips in the Oven?

Absolutely! The downside to oven baking is you just have to wait longer to get your hands on those crunchy sweet snacks! They take about 40 minutes to bake in the oven, and only six minutes in the microwave. They turn out just a bit crispier in the oven, but if you’re running dry on patience microwave these babies and enjoy your snack in a fraction of the time!

How Do I Make Apple Chips in the Microwave?

With only three ingredients, these couldn’t be easier to make! Here’s what you do:

  1. First, slice up your apples super thin. I like to use a mandolin slicer.
  2. Next, sprinkle on as much cinnamon and sugar as you like. Some days call for a bit more sweetness than others, am I right?
  3. Then, toss the apples in the microwave and cook for about five minutes until the edges curl up slightly. As a result, the apples will get super crispy!
  4. Let them cool for a bit and start snacking!
