Apple Peel Crisps Recipe

apple peel crisps

If you peel an apple (to make a pie, or for a child to eat) then why not try making these and make the most of every bit of your fruit:


  • Wash two apples before peeling
  • Preheat your oven to 150C
  • Line a baking tray with a piece of baking paper and spread out the apple peelings
  • Mix half a teaspoon of sugar (demerara works well) with just under half a teaspoon of ground cinnamon, and sprinkle over the apple peels, then mix around to coat them all evenly.
  • Bake for 30-45 minutes, checking and giving them a mix around at the half hour mark. They're done when they're crispy and will snap.
  • Let them cool, then add as a topping to granola, ice cream or just snack on them...


Adjust the quantities for however many apples you have peeled. You can always store apple peels with a dash of lemon juice (to prevent browning) in a tub for a day or two until you have enough to bake.
