When I’m on the trail, I love fruit. Buying dehydrated fruits can get really expensive. Thankfully it’s really easy to make your own!
Optional: sprinkle your apples with cinnamon. I also added a little bit of coconut sugar.
Many recipes will recommend using a “fruit leather” sheet or tray in your dehydrator. Just cut out a piece of parchment paper. It prevents your trays from getting sticky and is cheaper and more convenient to buy than special trays. Make sure to leave space between the apples slices when you lay them on the parchment paper.
Set your dehydrator to 135 degrees. I read that it can take up to 12 hours (it really depends on the thickness) but mine were thin and done around 6 hours.
Place on your parchment paper (leave some room in between) and set your dehydrator to 135 degrees. I put mine in with my apples. Check on them after 6 hours. You can tell they are done when they are bendable and a little chewy. They will not become crisp like banana chips.
