Baked apple and pear chips
SmartPoints® value per serving
If sweet-crunch is what you crave, then you'll love these cinnamon-spiked fruit chips made from fresh pears and apples. You only need five ingredients to make them, one of which is nonstick spray. Make a batch and store them in an airtight container whenever you have a craving for a quick snack. Just be sure to try to slice the pears and apples as thinly as possible for maximum crunch. Top them with a simple coating of Splenda and ground cinnamon, let them bake away in the oven, and they're ready to go. It's so easy, you'll find yourself making them over and over again.
