Crunchy Baked Apple Chips

Baked Apple Chips are a great
alternative to deep-fried
 potato chips.
This recipe is sweet, crunchy, and loaded with spices that are good for your digestive and circulatory system. What more could a girl ask for? Consider these a great mid-day snack paired with a small scoop of chicken salad, and few almonds. 

Cinnamon and cloves are great for
your digestive system. Cayenne
pepper is good for your circulatory
system. Spices are healing!
Every year my fiance and family all go apple picking. We search the Hendersonville, NC apple farms for all types and varieties. I never knew growing up, how many kinds of apples there are and how different each one's flavor profile is. Apples vary greatly in their texture, sweetness to tartness factor, and their crispness. Use a variety of apples in this recipe of whatever kind of apples you can find locally. Granny smith apples are allowed in moderation on the candida diet and some low-carb diets because they are classified as a lower sugar fruit. Enjoy!

Apples chips
may keep for 2-3
weeks in an air-
tight container.
3 local apples (We used one granny smith, one arkansas black, and one gala apple)
3/4 tbl. ground cinnamon
1/4 tbl. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
Sea Salt
Dash Cayenne Pepper

1. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper. Wash apples thoroughly and thinly slice your  into 1/8inch pieces.
One of the easiest recipes you'll
ever make!  Prep-time less than 10
2. Preheat oven to 175 degrees fahrenheit. Combine apples and seasonings. Mix together with hands until spices are evenly coating the apples.
3. Place apples slices down on parchment paper. Spread apples slices evenly across the surface. Slices may touch but not overlap.
4. Bake (dehydrate) for 8-9 hours or until crispy and the ends curl up. Let cool completely in the oven (We left ours in the oven overnight to cool). Store apple chips in an air tight container. 
*For candida diet, use all granny smith apples.
