Well, I bring you another healthy snack with a crunch. Except, this one is for those days when you want a little something sweet.
Can you guess what these are (without looking at the title of the post)?
Crunchy, sweet, and sprinkled with cinnamon
And did I mention you can make these in the microwave?
I bet you're already sold.
Crunchy Apple Crisps
- 1 apple, washed and cored
- cinnamon (as much as desired)
- optional: sweetener
- optional: other spices
- 1 tsp water
Slice the apple as thinly as possible. The thinner the slice, the crunchier and crispier the chip. Then, stir apple slices in a mixing bowl with the remaining ingredients. Make sure to toss the slices well so they are evenly coated in the mixture. Place the apple slices on a sprayed microwave safe plate. Microwave for one to three minutes, opening microwave between each shift to let steam out. Microwaving times will differ, but the chips will be slightly curled at the edges and dotted with brown spots when they are done. Be careful not to burn the slices. After that, just toss them in a bowl and you're ready to go!
These make an excellent afternoon snack and will probably come in handy when apple picking season comes around.
Be creative with you're spices, and be sure to try different kinds of apples. Who knows? Maybe you could even use a different fruit!
What can you come up with?
