Feeling “Fallish” ~ Cinnamon Dusted Apple Rings

We finally had a “fallish” day in South Carolina. Not really cold yet, but there was a brisk breeze (compliments of a hurricane off the coast). Since the leaves were swirling and it felt like fall, my daughter and I needed an Autumn activity.

Cinnamon Dusted Apple Rings

Yes, we could have done just plain apple rings, but if you throw in a little cinnamon, it instantly becomes “fallish.”

Apple rings also mean that we get to use the apple corer/peeler/slicer gadget. The oh so messy, sticky, juicy, drippy apple corer/peeler/slicer gadget. My kids love this thing – me – not so much. It does get the job done though.

All my boys were out-of-town, so Lacey got to do the honors all on her own. She was happy not to have to share the sticky responsibility.

1st – Prepare (peel, core, slice) your apples. Use a little lemon juice or Fruit Fresh to keep the apples from turning brown. You will want your slices fairly uniform in size so they dehydrate evenly. Mine were about ¼ inch thick.

2nd – Enter the CINNAMON. Dust to your liking, or let your 6 year old daughter do it and then you’ll have to go buy more cinnamon because she will use it ALL.

3rd – spread evenly on your dehydrator trays. We let our dehydrate overnight and they were perfect by morning. They are yummy! Good healthy after-school snacks!

I love the word “fallish.” I use it as often as possible!!

  1. Wow, I never thought of putting cinnamon on these! I dehydrated a bunch of apple rings a few weeks ago and we loved them, but wish I would had tried the cinnamon. I’m saving this idea for next year! (TALU)

  2. I don’t have a dehydrator, but I’ve made them in the oven a few times. Love them. I went crazy with that for a while – carrots, beets, pears, you name it!

    Then I figured out it was super easy to make beet chips in the microwave. You just need to watch them closely, because once the moisture is gone, they can burn easily. It’s great finding awesome snacks that are actually good for you! Although some would argue against the microwave I suppose. [#TALU]

    You have an adorable sous chef! :)

We are having a giveaway this week from Domata Gluten Free Products! Hope that you can join us, I’d love for you to share some of your awesome goodies!!

    • Thanks! I’d love to link up. I look forward to checking out your blog. I’ve been seriously considering being a vegetarian, but really lack the knowledge to make it happen.

      • When you take a look at any recipes on my site, think about adapting, whether you are gluten free or not, all items can be made with GF flour or wheat flour. We used wheat flour in most recipes before we went GF. Also we have done most of the recipes with dairy or vegan options :) Its certainly easier to take in baby steps. Like focusing on 1-2 meals a week (dinner) as vegetarian and going from there. :) Any questions, just ask!! :)

        Thanks for linking up at our Gluten Free Fridays party! I have tweeted and pinned your entry to our Gluten Free Fridays board on Pinterest! :) We had 101 awesome recipes! What a great resource we are creating!! Cindy from vegetarianmamma.com
