Before I get started with my recipe for oven baked fuji apple chips, I have a confession. I have been trying to get these to come out right for weeks. This is actually my 5th batch and finally…they are perfect! They aren’t hard at all…but I couldn’t get the thickness of the slices right because I didn’t have an adjustable mandolin slicer. Then I had to bake them in batches because I had just two little square cooling racks. I also tried to make them without coring the apples first and that was a disaster.

So…here are the easy steps to make delicious fuji apple slices in your very own oven. First…why fuji apples? No particular reason except that I love them on a salad I get at Panera so I tried to copy those. Fuji apples are sweet so the chips are a cross between a snack and a dessert. They are:

  • Fat-free
  • Gluten-free
  • Zero Weight Watchers points
  • Crunchy

Coring the apples takes a bit of strength and I found it helped to use both hands to push the corer through the apple. I like the handle on this particular corer because it gives great leverage and it’s easy on your hands.

Here is my mandolin slicer set-up. If you have never used a mandolin slicer, don’t be intimidated. They are a cinch to use. I highly recommend getting one with adjustable blades. Make sure to use the holder because the blades are super sharp. When slicing, apply a little pressure and that helps the apple slide smoothly through the blades.

I have my grandmother’s small, square cooling racks and most of the time they are all I need. Occasionally I wish I had bigger ones so I ordered this set of cooling racks and love them. I am able to make a big batch of apple chips all at the same time.

One of my greatest weaknesses, if not THE greatest, is potato chips. Simply put, I love them. If they are in the house, they are impossible for me to resist. So I’m constantly trying to come up with crunchy, healthier substitutions. That’s why I was so determined to figure out these oven baked fuji apple chips. I can happily sit with a bowl of these chips, crunching away, and not feel one bit guilty.

    I want to make these! I love apple chips! You might try doing the same with sweet potatoes! I know I will! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Christina says:

    Ann, these look great! have you tested them using a little cinnamon on them? We just love cinnamon.

    1. Ann Drake says:

      No I haven’t tried any cinnamon…if you try it let me know how it is!

  3. Ooops! Thanks for the work to pin down this “recipe” ~ these apple “chips” should be wonderful!

  4. JUst going back to this because I got the apples, and have a mandolin! My question, though, is whether the same temp and time apply for a regular oven. Not being familiar with using convection, I don’t know the difference(s). You mention air flow ~ does that speed cooking/require changes to recipes?

  5. My mouth is watering just looking at them, Ann! Seriously, I must make some!

  6. Ann, thank you for the wonderful recipe!

  7. These sound delicious! The Fuji is my favorite apple also next to the Macintosh which I use in my pies. So yummy. Thanks Anne. I’m going to give these a try.

    Oh- You and me both on the potato chips. I don’t often have them in the house because they are so addictive to me. lol. These sound good- I have never made dried apple slices before although I have had them. Thanks for doing the work to figure it all out. xo Diana

  9. Fuji apples are my favorite and I can’t wait to try these! And thank you for the link in your email for subscribers- I tried it and it works perfectly- brought me right to all the beautiful printables- free spring art here I come!
    Love it!

    Dear Ann,
    I love, love, love seeing these wonderful crispy apples. I can’t wait to make them!!
    I always love reading your ideas and looking for new inspiration….I always have such a sense of peace and joy after reading your blog.
    Your biggest fan, Carol

  11. Oh Ann, I am so excited to see this blog post today! I have been making these for years and my Apple corer is about worn out. Yours looks perfect because of the way it opens up to remove the core. That is ingenious! I have placed my order with Amazon! Thanks again for your lovely blog.

  12. I cannot wait to try these! Like you, potato chips are like magnets and you certainly can not eat just one. Thanks for your wonderful ideas in each and every post!

  13. Marlene Stephenson says:

    Thanks Ann can’t wait to try them.

  14. thanks for the recipe….I happen to have an adjustable mandolin…love it….I will try Fuji, my favorite apple or Pink Lady….also right up there….

  15. Love these! Already added Fuji apples to the grocery list.

  16. These look great! Did you choose “convection” when you baked these? Or is your oven always convection? (I choose if I want regular or convection on my oven.) Thanks for the help! I love your decorating ideas!

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Caryn…yes I choose convection. In fact, I always use the convection setting. It just makes sense that with the air flowing, things will cook more evenly. Thank you!
