Homemade Apple + Pear Chips
In an effort to leash my sweet tooth + keep my 30 Day Challenge promise, I’ve been whipping out some sweet snacks in the kitchen. This Apple + Pear Chips are by far, one of my favorites treats.
- 1 apple
- 1 pear
Using a mandoline or a very sharp knife, slice apple + pears into very thin translucent rounds. For best results, use slightly underripe fruits.
Transfer the slices to trays.
Sprinkled cinnamon to the apple slices. For an alternate taste try nutmeg.
Dehydrate at 136 degrees for approximately 3 hours or until edges begin to ruffle. Turn slices over + continue dehydrating until brown, about 1 extra hour. I have a 4 tray Excalibur Food Dehydrator that I heart like a little kid loves cake, but if you don’t have this gadget at home don’t worry, just heat your conventional oven at 200 degrees for 1 hour, then turn chips + bake for an additional hour.
Transfer chips to a wire rack to cool + harden. Store in an airtight container for up to two weeks in the refrigerator.
As you can see, these are sooooo easy to make + make perfect on-the-go picker uppers. Let me know when you take this recipe out for a spin.
