  • 5 Apples
  • Try it with cinnamon, vanilla or liquorice powderor fresh mint
  • apple corer
  • mandolin slicer or sharp knife
  1. The preparations are the same: The apples must be fresh and crisp to get a good result. You can use windfall apples – just check that there are no marks and scratches – or cut it off. Wash and dry the apples and cut them into slices, using a mandolin slicer or a sharp knife. Use an apple corer before mandolin slicer/sharp knife – or cut the apple into thin wedges.
  2. When you make dried apples in the oven, it is important to make the apples thin, so they dry quickly – it works well with a mandolin slicer.
  3. When you make dried apples in the dehydrator, it is not so important how thin the slices are – they actually get better if the apples aren’t sliced too thin.
  4. Spread the apple rings/slices in a single layer on a baking sheet with baking paper and let them dry in the oven at low heat 50-60 C overnight.
  5. If you are being impatient then give the apples 100 C for about 2-3 hours, perhaps more, depending on how juicy the apples are and the thickness of your slices. Turn the apples halfway through.
  6. In a dehydrator, – put the apples in a single layer be sure that they do not touch each other. In my dehydrator, it takes 1-3 days to dry the apples.
  7. Your apple chips are ready when they feel dry and crisp.
Recipe Notes


  • The dried apple slices taste super good with or without added flavour and they are a healthy snack. </ Li>
  • Cut them into cubes, use them in muesli, in buns, breadsticks and muesli cookies. </ Li>
  • Keep the dried apples in an airtight container, I put in a slice of (oven) dried bread to retain crispness. </ li>
