My mother made an apple crisp the other week, and peeled a whole bunch of apples, which made me sad. What’s an apple without the skin? A sad, naked apple. What’s the skin without the apple? Turns out it’s delicious!Crispy Apple Chips vegan
- peeled apple skins (I used about 1.5 cups– beware that they shrink a LOT)
- cinnamon to taste
- optional: sprinkling of sugar
Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Peel apples, and toss apple skins in a bowl generously with cinnamon (add sugar if you’d like to make it sweeter). Lay your peeled apple skins on a parchment-paper lined baking sheet, and let sit in oven to crisp for 2 hours or more (until they become slightly brown and crispy). Let cool completely, and enjoy within 2 days.
The crispier the better! These are delicious eaten plain, or sprinkled over some yogurt for a bit of a light toasted crunch.
