Toddler Recipes: Baked Cinnamon Apple Snacks
Toddler Recipes: Baked cinnamon apples make a sweet healthy treat.
Delicious, naturally sweetened snack with a hint of cinnamon makes this a wonderful healthy treat.INGREDIENTS
A dehydrator would probably be the best way to make apple chips...but girls and I wanted to try baking some. This recipe did take a little bit of time for just a couple apples but I am always happy knowing I am giving the girls a healthy snack without extra sugar or preservatives...and it did taste great!
The end result was apple snacks that are soft and chewy with a little crispiness on the edges.
Thickness of the slice and length of time baked will also determine how crisp it becomes.
