When you’ve got a craving for potato chips, if can often be tough to say no. And unfortunately, potato chips are often greasy and high in sodium, and eating too many chips can really derail a diet. So, if you’re searching for a healthy snack that’s similar to a crunchy potato chip, then you should consider making some apple-cheddar crisps. Our recipe makes four servings of tasty apple chips—much like a potato chip, an apple chip can have a nice salty crunch to it, but because it’s made from fruit it’s much healthier for you. Apple crisps also store well, so you can make yourself a bag of apple crisps for later in the week and they’ll still taste fresh! If you think your friends and family might enjoy this recipe, then make sure to share it with them on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and Twitter.
Ready to try our apple crisps recipe? Regarding ingredients, you’ll need four Fuji, Granny Smith, Gala or other brands of apples, along with four ounces of Cabot Sharp Cheddar Cheese and some King Arthur all-purpose flour. To make the chips, you’ll start by preheating the oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit. Then wash the apple and slice it until it’s extremely thin—using a slicer or mandolin might work best. Then slice some cheddar cheese (thinly) and place your cheese on each apple slice. Cover one side of an apple slice with flour and place that slice, flour side down, on the other piece with cheese. Press down to firmly lock the cheese between the two apple slices. Repeat until you use up all the cheese and apples. Then bake your apples for one hour in the oven. Turn them over after the hour has passed, and then bake for another hour. Let them cool before snacking.
