These are quick to make and are guaranteed to taste much better than
any that you might find in a shop. In all honesty, these apple crisps aren’t
bursting with goodness, except for being a very good source of vitamin C
and fibre, but they are much healthier than any processed snack you might
crave, are cheap to prepare and are really delicious for the whole family
PREP TIME 1 5 MINUTES • COOK TIME 3 0 MINUTES • MAKES 4 PORTIONS
4 tbsp runny honey
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 Preheat the oven to 160°C and line 2–3 baking trays with
parchment. (Do not use the fan setting or else the chips will
blow around in the oven.)
2 Slice the apples as thinly as you can, either using a mandolin
(being very careful, as the blade is very sharp) or a sharp knife,
leaving the skin on. Lay the apple slices on the prepared baking
trays, making sure they are not touching.
3 Heat the honey and cinnamon in a small saucepan until very
runny. Brush each apple slice with a little of the honey and
cinnamon mixture, then bake in the oven for 15 minutes.
Remove the trays from the oven, turn over the slices and brush
them with the remaining honey. Return to the oven for a further
15 minutes. You may want to switch the trays around to ensure
4 Once the apple crisps are slightly golden and firm to the
touch, remove them from the oven and leave to cool on a wire
rack. They can be stored in an airtight container for 2–3 days,
ready for instant snacking.
