Today I wanted to make an apple pie....infact, I wanted to make a apple green chile pie with cheddar crust and walnut topping but I just couldn't bring myself to do it. I have been trying to not indulge in too many sweets lately in an effort to drop some of those good old lbs and get healthy. So I had the apples out on the counter all ready to go but the thin reasonable Chelly was much stronger than her evil twin today. Since I have been wanting to bake up some apple chips I thought that this would be a good and healthy alternative to the calorie laden pie. I am so glad I did. These were really tasty and everyone really enjoyed the healthy snack. These are really easy to do and if you are smart...double the recipe!
Cinnamon Apple Crisps
|2 small fresh apple(s), Red Delicious or Gala, sliced paper-thin ( I used Granny Smith)|
|1 Tbsp sugar (I used Truvia)|
| 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon |
Preheat oven to 200°F.
Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper (not wax paper). Place apple slices in a single layer on paper; sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.
Bake until lightly browned, about 2 hours. Cool on wire rack and serve
The apple pie will have to wait!!
