Chips made out of an apple? Ohh it is possible, I promise. I was weary of it at first, but I tried some apple chips on a salad the other day and I loved the crunch that they added to the salad. Yes, I went back to Panera Bread. I think it’s way too close to my house and work. The other night Shaun and I weren’t feeling very well and we wanted some soup, but neither one of us wanted to make any. We hopped into the car and we found ourselves at Panera once again. I might have dropped a couple of hints to Shaun before the decision was made. Then we arrived at the restaurant and we both couldn’t help from detouring from just the soup, so we decided on the pick two option.
Baked Potato Soup with a Fuji Apple Chicken Salad! What a great combo!
I was mentioning to Shaun about making some apple chips and he proceeds to tell me he loves them. WHAT? How did I not know that? I think he is holding back from me sometimes. Ok, ok I will play nice today just because it’s Valentine’s Day and he is taking me to supper.
Yield: 2 servings
WW Pts: 2
2 red apples
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp sugar
Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Wash and scrub the apples and slice them real thin with a knife or use a mandoline. Remove any seeds from the slices. In a large zip lock bag add the cinnamon and sugar and then pour in the apple slices and shake it up. Place the apples onto parchment paper or a silicone mat on a baking sheet.
Cook for 1 hour and then flip the apples and cook for an additional 30 minutes to an hour or until chips have lost most of their moisture. For the last 15 minutes I moved them to the top shelf of the oven. They will dry and crisp more once they are out of the oven.
*Cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of the apple slices*
