If you're looking for an easy, healthy snack, this apple recipe is for you.
We've been using the Microwave Potato Chip maker by Mastrad for years. We love it for potato chips--all the crisp flavor of a potato chip without all the fat.
I thought I'd try it with a Fuji apple to see just how versatile the chip maker can be. First we cored the apple, then sliced it into thin rounds. The Mastrad Chip Maker actually comes with a handheld slicer, so that part was easy. It definitely helps to have all the slices the same thickness, that way they all cook at the same rate. Because they are slices so thin, we got about 40 slices from one apple!
Then, sprinkle the cinnamon on the apple slices, and just lay them on the cooking tray. Don't overlap the slices, or they won't cook properly. You may need to do a couple batches. Microwave for about 3 minutes. Times may vary depending on the strength of your microwave, so start with less time than you think.
These are delicious, and the chips had the flavor of apple pie. So, it's an easy snack, but also a healthy dessert! I'm having fun trying new fruits on my chip maker. Next, I think I'll try pear or mango to see how those turn out!
