Coconut Cinnamon Apple Chips

Coconut Cinnamon Apple Chips  

Rating: **** 

By: Amanda, Olivia H, Alyssa 

4 red delicious apples
1/2 cup of coconut shavings
Powdered cinnamon (apply desired amount per apple slice) 


Wash apples and then cut them leaving the skin on.  Be sure to cut them through the core, removing seeds from each slice.  The thinner the slice, the crispier each chip will be.  The 4 apples will make approximately 40-50 chips. 

Mince the coconut savings thoroughly for a more powdery, light texture. Once minced, place the coconut into a small bowl and press each apple slice in it, making sure they stick to it on both sides.  Note* the thinner the coconut, the easier it will stay on the apples.  

After the coconut is on the apple slices, sprinkle the desired amount of cinnamon onto them (only on one side).  

After all the chips are prepared, place them onto a dehydrator and leave them there for 18 hours.

We thought our apples would have been easier to make than our cake but it turned out that it took much longer than we expected to dehydrate them. The recipe said to put them in the dehydrator for 8 to 10 hours but it ended up being around 18 hours in the dehydrator. At first we were going to season them with cinnamon and brown sugar but we ended up using coconut and cinnamon. The apples ended up tasting amazing. Our group agreed that we would make this recipe again.
