Spicy Apple Chips

A perfect healthy on-the-go spicy snack…

Fruity sweet, crisp, and spicy – spicy apple chips are a real healthy treat, especially if you’re the “on the go” type.Put a handful into a ziploc bag and go! They are perfect for lunches and afternoon snacks.

The recipe mixes cinnamon and cayenne pepper powder. It’s a perfect pairing in our book – earthy sweet and spicy, without being over-spiced to the point where the heat is secondary. Of course, feel free to experiment with additional spices, too. A touch of nutmeg or allspice can be a great adaptation to the base recipe.
