Homemade Apple Chips #MonkFruitInTheRaw

My kids have picked up one of my bad habits — my sweet tooth! Instead of filling up on sugary cakes, cookies and candy I look for healthier options.  I recently was introduced to a new product called Monk Fruit In The Raw.


Monk Fruit In The Raw is made from delicious vine-ripened monk fruit, also called luo han guo which is a native fruit to Asia.  This zero-calorie sweetener tastes like sugar which amazed me because it is actually really good.  I had expected Monk Fruit In The Raw to taste like all the other sweeteners on the market but after tasting it I was amazed how good it was and how it tasted like natural sugar. Plus there was no after taste!

Made with monk fruit extract, which is about 300 times sweeter than cane sugar, blended with dextrose, a bulking agent, to create the perfect balance of sweetness so that it can be conveniently measured, poured and used as a substitute for sugar or other caloric sweeteners. The big difference between The Monk Fruit In The Raw is that it is made without table sugar, sugar alcohols (erythritol), or molasses.

September being Childhood Obesity month I decided to make my children a healthy snack using Monk Fruit In The Raw as a topping mixture on my homemade Apple Chips.

  1. 2 Large Red Delicious Apples
  2. 1 Tablespoon Monk Fruit In The Raw
  3. 1 Tablespoon Ground Cinnamon
  1. First clean the apples really well and then core out the center. I use an apple corer, if you do not have one you can use a sharp knife.
  2. Next lay the apple on it's side and begin slicing in very thin slices. If you have a slicer you could use that too.
  3. Then line a baking pan with either parchment paper or a silicone mat. Place the apples in the pan.
  4. In a small bowl mix the Monk Fruit In The Raw and ground cinnamon together and then sprinkle over the apple slices.
  5. Finally bake on 200 degrees for 2 1/2 hours.
  1. Baking tip: I highly recommend cooking for 60 minutes and then flip the apple slices and then cook for another 60 minutes.

monk fruit in the raw and cinnamon 

The apple chips recipe turned out great and my kids had no idea that I had used a zero-calorie sweetener with the cinnamon. To them they thought it was regular table sugar!  


 Monk Fruit In The Raw comes in a 4.8 oz. bakers bag which is perfect for baking and a packet sizes sold 40 per box, this size is great for home or on the go for adding to coffee or teas.

  79. These good article for people have obesity problem, thanks for share.

  80. I actually have been making these for a while now, yesterday actually…lol. I love to eat fruit but it is hard to get hubby to eat any fruit other than a banana. I think because he does not want to ‘mess’ around peeling, cutting etc, he is lazy that way. So when I make apple chips I know he will eat them.
