Hi friends, happy Monday! I think I’m more ok with Monday since we had such a great weekend! To be honest, we’ve hardly been doing anything exciting on the weekends recently so it was nice to shake it up a bit. Friday night we stayed close to home but had a nice little treat.
I worked Saturday morning and then we had a late lunch at Elmwood Cafe.
Yesterday was my fave. Nathan texted me while I was at the gym to let me know he had a fun day planned; I couldn’t finish my workout quickly enough and once we breakfasted and got ready, we made our way out to Wente Vineyards. It was such a beautiful day and let’s be honest, wine tasting and a picnic is always a good idea!
Part of our picnic included a sweet, crunchy treat that I made the other day.. and I’m surprised they lasted as long as they did here! This month’s Recipe Redux gave me the perfect excuse to do something different with my daily apple.
Whether it’s extra garden bounty or a sale at the supermarket – dehydrating food is a budget-friendly way to stock up for later. You can use a food dehydrator, a low slow oven, or natural sunshine to preserve natural healthfulness. Show us how you like to dehydrate, or a healthy recipe for how you enjoy using dehydrated fruits, veggies or other bounty.
Spiralized Cinnamon Apple Chips
– 2 large apples [I used fuji but you can use your favorite]
– Coconut oil cooking spray [can sub another lightly flavored cooking spray]
– 1/2 – 1 tbsp cinnamon
– 1/4 tsp salt
Preheat your oven to 250°F. Using the B blade on the Paderno, spiralize your apples. Toss the apples with the coconut oil spray, cinnamon, and salt on a lined cookie sheet and place in the oven. Bake your apples for about 2 hours, tossing occasionally, until crispy. Remove from the oven, let cool completely, and store in an airtight container.. or eat all of them off the cookie sheet!
These little chips are a little time consuming but so worth the patience and a great work around if you don’t have a dehydrator. Hope you enjoy the crunchies!
Food for Thought
Did you do anything fun over the weekend?
Have you ever tried dehydrating in the oven?
Fall is in the air and I think apples are on all our minds 🙂 I need to get myself a spiralizer–these chips look delicious!
Oh you need a spiralizer for so many reasons!
Wow these look amazing! I don’t have a spiraliser but am trying to think if I can just peel them lots or something… Hmm!
