These apple crisps are naturally sweet and are great for a picnic, when you are on the go, or as a quick pram snack. You can experiment with different apples; I have used organic gala apples, which are naturally sweet, but not as sweet as perhaps a pink lady apple.

Serves 2-4


  • 2-3 organic apples, washed

To prep, you will need

  • apple corer
  • mandoline slicer
  • 2 large baking trays
  • greaseproof paper


Preheat a fan oven to 140-150°C, depending on your oven.

Choose your favourite apple and core. Then thinly slice the apples carefully using a mandoline slicer; you can slice the apple by hand, it just takes a little longer.

Take a baking sheet and line with grease proof paper and lay the apples, not overlapping, on the baking tray. One apple, thinly sliced will fill a large baking tray.

Cook in the oven and turn the apples half way through cooking. If they start to brown remove from the oven.

15 to 20 mins ~ the apples to be a little soft and chewy

30 mins ~ the apples will be crisper

Cool, then enjoy, I guarantee they won’t last long!
