Crispy Apple Chips

New York Housewives Premiere tonight! What better way to ring in the new season than with some apple chips. Perfectly crisp and indulgent chips that make you feel like your eating heathy, because you are! After your second martini tonight you’ll need a snack.

Crispy Apple Chips


2 Medium Apples
1/2 tsp. Sugar
1/4 tsp. Cinnamon
Pinch of Salt

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.

Begin by peeling and coring two apples. Cut each apple in half, using a mandolin, thinly slice the apples.

On a metal baking sheet, lay the slices in a single layer (make sure not to over lap them).

Mix together sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Sprinkle on top of the apple slices.

Bake the apple chips for 40 minutes. Remove them from the oven, and flip the slices over. Sprinkle again with cinnamon mixture and continue to bake for another 40 minutes.

Once the apple chips are slightly browned, and edges have curled, it’s time to remove them from the oven.

When you initially take the chips out of the oven they will still be slightly soft. Don’t worry! Allow them to cool, and they will crisp up!

An apple a day keeps the doctor away, so eat up!

Crispy Sweet Potato Chips

Sweet potatoes remind me of two things, Thanksgiving, and pie. The sweet taste, and orange color make these the friendliest of all potatoes. Not only do they make you feel like you’re eating dessert for dinner, they also are filled with essential vitamins. Sweet potatoes are pretty much the cooler older brother to white potatoes. They have a great tan, and know whats good for you. You can never go wrong with a sweet potato, or these sweet potato chips.

Crispy Sweet Potato Chips


1 Large Sweet Potato
1/3 c. Coconut Oil (melted)
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp. Cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees.

The easiest way to slice the potato is with a mandolin, or slice side on a cheese grater, but you can definitely hand slice them in a pinch. Just make sure to slice them very thin for the best results.

After thinly slicing the potato, brush eat slice with melted coconut oil.

Place the potato slices in a single layer on a metal baking sheet. Do not use parchment paper with these chips, they wont crisp up all the way.

Mix together the salt and cinnamon, and sprinkle over the potato slices.

Bake for an hour, turning them over at the half way point.

Once the chips are browned and crispy, remove them from the oven.

Don’t panic if your chips aren’t completely crisp yet, once they are completely cooled they will become super crispy.

*You’re house will smell delicious after baking them!

Salt and Vinegar Kale Chips

Yep, I’m one of those people. I love Kale. I loved it before it was cool, and I’ll love it after it’s cool. We’ll probably both be chilling together in our old age, telling all the youngin’s about our adventure’s we’ve gone on. This being one. Kale chips in my opinion are here to stay. If you aren’t a big fan of Kale try this recipe. You’ll second guess everything that you know.

Salt and Vinegar Kale Chips


2 Leaves of Kale
1 tbl. Olive Oil
2 tbl. White Vinegar
Pinch of salt
Pinch of garlic powder
*Extra 1/2 tsp. White Vinegar optional

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.

Rinse and dry two large leaves of kale thoroughly.

Remove the leaves from the stem, and toss them with olive oil and seasonings. Reserve an additional 1/2 teaspoon of vinegar for later.

Lay a single layer of leaves on a parchment lined baking sheet, and bake for 25 minutes.

Once the kale leaves are flat and crispy, remove them from the oven. Allow them to completely cool before serving.

If you are like me, and love vinegar, toss the chips with an additional 1/2 teaspoon of vinegar. Make sure to coat all the chips with it. But if you want a milder taste, leave the additional vinegar out.

Be careful because you just might become a kale convert.

Pita Chips

Chip Week! More delicious and safer than shark week. What better way to start chip week off than with a tried and true friend, the Pita Chip. A sturdy specimen of a chip, great for dipping, scooping, and general munching. Since these chips are made out of pita bread, they’re basically a sandwich. Which mean its healthy, and you can definitely eat it any time of the day.

Pita Chips

1 Pita Round
1 tbl. Olive Oil
1/4 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/4 tsp. Ground Pepper
1/8 tsp. Ground Paprika
Heavy sprinkle of sea salt

This recipe is so easy, you’ll wonder why you’ve ever fretted when you find yourself at the wrong end of a pita chip bag.

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees

Cut the pita bread into desired shapes. I did general triangles, but hey go wild. You only live once.

Toss the bread pieces with olive oil and seasonings. Lay the chips in a single layer, not over lapping, on a parchment lined baking sheet.

Bake the chips for 20 minutes, turning them over at the halfway point.

Once they are evenly tanned, remove them from the oven, and allow them to completely cool before serving.

These chips are so good on their own, but who doesn’t like company? Don’t forget to save some to try with hummus!

*This recipe is easy to double for entertaining.
