I like fruit, I like to have fruit at home, I am picky about the fruit I have, especially my apples. When I eat an apple I only eat granny smiths, I’m just not a fan of the others. So that led me on to sliced apple crisps.
My other half went shopping and bought apples, however, not the ones I eat, so the apples were in the fridge uneaten for a while. After some time, I knew if I didn’t come up with a recipe for them, they would end up going bad and then going in the bin.
If you haven’t guessed already, I HATE waste. There is far to much food waste, so when I cook, I try to make sure I use up all my ingredients or have other recipes that uses similar ingredients so that I have no waste.
In addition to that, where possible, I like to freeze fruit and vegetables so that they don’t go back, check out To Freeze or Not To Freeze.
What are Apple Crisps?
Apple crisps, also called apple chips are sliced apple with the core removed, cooked and coated in a flavour. I have been having a play about with different flavours on the crisps, I have used cinnamon which is one of my favourite flavours, I have tried mixed spice, which gives it a Christmas flavour and my absolute flavour favourite is apple pie spice seasoning.
This is something that I found in the middle aisle in Aldi, it is a flavouring, comes in a small jar like cinnamon does and I have put that on the crisps and OMG, it is a game changer. The only issue that I have is that I can’t find this in other supermarkets and I can’t even find it on Amazon.
How many syns are in Apple Crisps?
If you’re following Slimming World, then you will know about syns and what you can and can’t have, you will also know about changing the way that a certain ingredient is used can mean that there are syns.
As this is changing the apples from being an apple and turning it into apple crisps, that would mean that there is 2.5 syns per 100g. The reason for the syns in these crisps is that it is easy to overeat on these and as fruit contains natural sugar, it means that you are having a lot of sugar.
Apple Crisp Slices Cost
Apple crisps are one of the best recipes to use up fruit to stop it from going to waste, it means that you don’t have to make an apple tart, pie, crumble, instead, you can have healthy apple crisps.
You can use any eating apple that you like, whether that is the good old Granny Smith, Golden Delicious, Pink Lady and even Gala. As long as it is an eating apple, you can use it for this recipe.
Don’t use cooking apples for this recipe, they are better for crumbles, pies and tarts, they do go mushy and that is certainly not what you want or need with these apple chips.
If you are lucky enough to have apple trees in your garden or allotment, as long as they are eating apples, this is a perfect recipe that you can do, so you have something different to make with the apples and not have to give bags of them away.
