Oven baked cinnamon pear chips

Eat this healthy snack anytime!

Pear crisps are so easy to make! A Fall favorite, these healthy cinnamon pear chips are an easy afternoon snack or dessert. They also look fancy on a cheese plate.

This recipe uses brown Bosc pears.

The pears are sliced and boiled.

Sugar and cinnamon (or ginger, nutmeg or cloves) are sprinkled on the pears.

Setting the mandolin

The pear slices don’t have to be paper-thin, but they should be consistent in thickness.  If you don’t own a mandolin, here’s an affiliate link to the progressive mandolin I use. 

These pears were sliced on the #2 setting.

Parchment paper is a lifesaver

These guys will stick to a cookie sheet. For easy cleanup, use parchment paper. 

Enjoy your cinnamon pear chips!

Pear Chips Recipe

Here's a Fall favorite: healthy cinnamon pear chips with cinnamon and sugar. It's a healthy, in-season snack. For more recipes, visit

Servings 2 Bosc pears


  • 2 bosc pears
  • 3 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp optional - nutmeg / all spice / ginger
  • dusting sugar


  1. First, set everything up... Set your oven to 250. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

  2. Mix together spices and sugar. Set aside.

  3. Prepare the pears. Remove the top and bottom and slice them on mandolin setting #2. Then boil pear slices for 1 minute. 

  4. Drain pears and arrange them on cookie sheets. Sprinkle the spice mixture on the pears and put them in the oven. 

    Check on your pear chips every 30 minutes. Depending on the oven, estimate 1.5 - 2 hours of continuous bake time. It takes a bit of guess work and sampling to tell when they're done. You may want to flip them for the final 30 minutes. 

    The chips will usually crisp up after a few minutes drying out of the oven.
