The snack to save me from myself – spicy apple cinnamon chips

apple cinnamon chips

I’ve mentioned before that I love salty snacks more than sweet ones (probably in part because I can’t bake any desserts). I’ve weened myself off of chips, except for the occasional binge on sour cream and onion or ketchup chips. And don’t get me started on sour cream and onion rings. I don’t know what it is about those things, but the minute I see them, I can’t stop eating them until I finish the entire bag!

My nemesis – the most disgusting and greatest things of all time – sour cream and onion rings!

But I digress, and now I want sour cream and onion rings… but spicy apple chips are great too, and so much healthier! Here’s my recipe.

      Thanks so much! I’m so glad to hear! Do you have any suggestions for improvement?

      1. It took me much longer to get them crispy, but I live in the Houston area which is very humid!
