Spicy Apple Chips

Fruity sweet, crisp, and spicy – spicy apple chips are a real healthy treat, especially if you’re the “on the go” type. Put a handful into a Ziploc bag and go! They are perfect for lunches and afternoon snacks.

Spicy Apple Chips

The recipe mixes cinnamon and cayenne pepper powder. It’s a perfect pairing in our book – earthy, sweet, and spicy, without being over-spiced, so the apple’s natural flavor still shines. Of course, feel free to experiment with additional spices, too. A touch of nutmeg or allspice can be a great adaptation to the base recipe.
