Baked Apple Chips

Look, I know that most of the recipes on my food page look like they came straight out of the Paula Dean cookbook. It's true, I'm a glutton for the good stuff. I love junk food, I think butter is manna from heaven, and a single day without a dessert makes me sad.

But I do try to keep all of this in moderation. I don't completely gorge on the foods that I know are unhealthy. And I'm no Jillian Michaels, but I do try to stay active. 
Especially now that I'm pregnant and nomming on goodies for two people, I do make sure that I'm eating all my leafy greens and dosing up on the health foods too.
{Pretty pumped about being up only 15 lbs in 31 weeks actually! Woohoo!} 

So yeah, other that just promising you guys that I'm really not a 600 pound grease ball, I wanted to say that healthy snacks are awesome too! They don't make the blog as much as they should.
Just to prove my point, I'll share one with you today.



These are a fantastic snack food.
They take no time to prepare {though they're awhile in the oven} and have just two ingredients.
I love them for a movie night or a lazy afternoon. 
{We're going with the latter this evening - Courageous from redbox if you're the nosy type like me}


Ingredients:

 - Apples
 - Cinnamon


If its just J.B. and I, I'll cut up 4 apples for us to munch on, but you can make any amount you want!

First, preheat your oven to 275. 
Slice up your apples. Make sure to remove the core/seeds.
Some folks like to peel them as well. I'm much too lazy for that myself.



Lay out your apple slices on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper.

Then sprinkle with cinnamon.
If you like a lot of cinnamon flavor, use more than you see here. I'm pretty moderate with it.




Bake for 40 minutes. Then turn the slices over and bake for an additional 40 minutes.
Feel free to experiment with the baking time dependent upon how you like the apple chips to taste. For a chewier chip, bake less. For a crispier chip, bake longer.






And then enjoy!
The added bonus is that they also make your house smell delicious!!
