Apple chips are a great (and healthy) seasonal Fall treat. They’re so much better for you than potato chips or pretzels, and so easy to make at home!
I used to buy these in the store, and loved them – I could eat a whole bag in a single sitting. But now I make my own, and it’s so fun and tasty to experiment with different varieties. It’s a yet another delicious way to enjoy the bounty of the season!
I hope you enjoy this simple-yet-tasty treat!
