With autumn in the air, these healthy apple crisps are a great snack. They may take a while to make, but don’t let the baking time deter you. The scent of apples and warm autumn spice will fill your house with a festive feel.
- 3 red apples
- 3 tsp ground cinnamon
- 2 tsp Sugar (preferably soft brown sugar)
- For a chai-twist, add on the following:
- 1 tsp ground ginger
- 1 tsp ground cardamom 1 tsp ground allspice
- 1 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1 tsp ground coves
- Preheat the oven to 140°C, and line a baking tray with baking paper.
- Wash and dry the apples. With your sharpest knife, thinly slice the apples into rounds. Don’t worry if they’re not all even – go for the rustic look. Lay the apples on the baking sheet.
- In a small bowl, mix together the spices and sugar. Lightly sprinkle half of the mix over your apples.
- Bake the apple slices on the middle shelf of your oven. After an hour, remove them from the oven and carefully flip them. Sprinkle the other side with some more of the spice mix.
- Pop them back into the oven for another 30-45 minutes, or until the apples have dried out and turned a light golden brown; keep an eye on them.
- For soft and chewy apple crisps, less baking time is needed. If you want a bit of a crunch, this will take a little longer.
- Once cooled, store in an airtight container at room temperature.
