Dehydrated Apples

Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 8 hrs
Course Snack


  • dehydrator


  • apples (as many as you want)
  • 1-2 lemons
  • cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice optional


  • Grab a large bowl and juice 1-2 lemons into the bowl. The lemon juice helps the apples from turning brown.
  • wash, Core and cut apples into thin slices ( ya know like a crescent moon) or rounds. (make sure you grab apples that aren't mushy or have any bruised spots. Use those for applesauce!) I DO NOT peel my apples!
  • As you're cutting apples, drop them into the bowl of lemon juice. Toss them a bit each time you add more slices just to make sure they all get some of the lemon juice.
  • Lay apple slices flat on the dehydrator trays. Make sure they are in a single layer and not really touching. (yes some of mine are touching but it works better if they aren't. Do as I say not as I do haha) This is when I sprinkle a little cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice!! SO delish! If you are planning to use the apples in another recipe you can just leave them plain.
  • Turn dehydrator to 145* and let sit for about 8 hours - you may need less time... or more, just start checking around hour 6. Apples should feel leathery and that all the moisture is gone.
  • Use in oatmeal, trail mix, bars, or store in airtight containers.
