Cinnamon Apple Chips

Cinnamon Apple Chip Snackers

After a great family trip to Friske’s Apple Farm up in Northern Michigan last weekend, I’m still a bit obsessed with all things apple here.  We had such a a great time wandering the orchard with the kids, drinking hot cider and literally stuffing our faces with deliciously warm donuts!  Autumn in Michigan does not get better than this.

I couldn’t help myself but try to find a way to create a “healthy-ish” snack with these beautiful Ida Red apples we picked in the orchards.  Ida Reds are known for the perfect mix of tartness & juiciness, but really you can use whatever type of apple your heart fancies.  Try grabbing your own bushel of seasonal apples and make these for the week ahead. Perfect for a midmorning or afternoon snack that the kids and adults will both love!
