A few weeks ago we made banana candy, a gooey, sweet, healthy treat. Mercedes was asking for something sweet today so we created apple candy bites! These were every bit as successful and delicious as the banana candy. They were sweet, chewy with a little bit of a crunch in the middle and a perfectly healthy way to satisfy my sweet tooth. They lasted less than 10 minutes between the 3 of us girls. =-)
Step 1: Cut your apples into thin slices (we used 2 apples for a snack for one adult and two toddlers).
Step 2: Cut the apple slices into bite sized pieces.
Step 3: Transfer pieces to a small bowl.
Step 4: Sprinkle with cinnamon (or cinnamon sugar).
Step 5: Mix until all the apples are coated in cinnamon or cinnamon sugar.
Step 6: Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and spread apple bites in a single layer on the cookie sheet.
Step 7: Bake at 200 degrees for 1 hour (less if you want them crunchy, more if you want them super soft and chewy. I liked them chewy with a slight crunch in the middle).
That's all! Prep takes about 5 minutes. Another bonus: While they are baking in the oven the house smells amazing!
