I took the teenagers to the movies last night and since we are all on the detox we had to plan ahead to avoid popcorn and Junior Mint temptation. I was looking for something semi-sweet, but with a crunch. We went for sliced green apples slightly dried and sprinkled with cinnamon. They were perfect and we saved at least $12.50 on popcorn not to mention the empty calories of theater snacks. We also opted for unsweetened iced tea instead of soda. Overall, a successful night out and we made choices we can feel good about.
3 Granny Smith Apples
Slice your apples and place on waxed paper on a cookie sheet. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake/dry in a 200 degree oven for 3 hours, flipping them half way through. It was just the right amount of time so they were dry, sweet and crunchy. Any longer and I think they would have been too soft.
