These Air Fryer Apples are crispy on the outside but soft on the inside just like baked apples! Super easy to make with only minimal whole ingredients!
With pumpkins overtaking this season I thought it was time to switch it up and make the other fall favorite…apples! Since I got my air fryer, it’s SO much easier to make certain meals, so then it came to me, “I’m going to try making baked apples in the air fryer”. Except I really did want them to get mushy, so these kind of turned out like apple fries?
I don’t know the exact word for them, but boy are they GOOD! So be sure to put this on your list to make next! These are great for snacks and desserts!
What You Need To Make Air Fryer Apples
Apples – They need to be a little on the larger side, and you could choose whatever variety is your favorite! If you like them on the sweeter side, go with honey crisp. If you like them on the sour side, go with Granny Smith. Both of these are really good to cook with because they don’t get overly soggy.
Oat flour – If you don’t have any, simply grind up some oats, and BOOM you have oat flour. I do this all the time in my Ninji Foodie and it works perfectly, plus I don’t have to go to the store, haha!
Coconut Sugar – This is my favorite, I don’t really eat white sugar
Eggs – These are going to make sure our sugar coating sticks
Graham Crackers – If you don’t have graham crackers, you can use your kid’s Teddy Grahams!
Cooking Spray – Totally optional!
Don’t forget your favorite dipping sauce! I chose yogurt with honey and cinnamon, but peanut butter or caramel sauce would be delicious as well!
Are These Air Fryer Apples Good For Reheating?
In my honest opinion, most foods that you make in the air fryer are best served fresh out! You can always reheat, but as it goes with fried, crispy food, it’s not going to be the same as when they were hot out of the fryer.
Tips for Cooking With Your Air Fryer
- Don’t overload your basket. If possible keep your apples in a single layer.
- If you are using parchment paper liners or foil, never put those in while the air fryer is preheating. This causes them to fly around, and I mean we really don’t want a kitchen fire, do we?
- If you are using your air fryer to reheat, set it at a lower temperature and increase the time. It still won’t take as long as it would in the oven, but they don’t need to recook all over again.
- I love kitchen tools and accessories, so be sure to check out the air fryer accessory set or you can shop my store to see all of my favorites!
Follow the regular instructions, but place on a baking sheet and bake at 350F for 15-20 minutes, flipping halfway through.
