When I'm craving something sweet after dinner I always head straight for air fryer baked apples. If I have chocolate or ice-cream in the house I'm going straight for those but in this scenario I'm describing I don't have any delicious treats just lying around.
They're made with simple everyday ingredients I always have on hand (you will too) and are ready in just 15 minutes. All you have to do is halve an apple, fill it with butter, cinnamon and a simple oat crisp then bake in your air fryer.
Once that timer dings your house will smell divine and you'll have a deliciously soft, cinnamon baked apple with a crunchy crisp topping. An air fryer is a kitchen appliance that uses convection to rapidly circulate hot air around food to cook and crisp it up.
Granny Smith, Golden Delicious and Honey crisp also work well so go ahead and get whatever is on sale! Here's what you'll need to make these baked apples (full measurements listed in the printable recipe card below)...
Brush a little butter over the cut sides of the apples, then sprinkle with cinnamon. Place the apple halves carefully into the air fryer basket, then cook for 15 minutes or until softened.
Bake for 20 minutes or until the apples are soft and tender, and the filling is crisp and browned. I love using Pink Lady apples when baking, but Granny Smith, Golden Delicious or Honey crisp would all work well.
Topping Ingredients ⅓ cup Old Fashioned / Rolled Oats 1 tbsp Butter, melted 1 tbsp Maple Syrup (or honey or rice malt syrup) 1 tsp Wholemeal / Whole Wheat Flour, (can sub for almond meal or all-purpose flour / plain flour) ½ tsp Cinnamon Place the apple halves carefully into the air fryer basket, then cook for 15 minutes or until softened.
I love using Pink Lady apples when baking, but Granny Smith, Golden Delicious or Honey crisp would all work well. Melt your butter all at once (1 tbsp + 1 tsp) and use a bit to brush over the apple halves, then mix what's left with the rest of the topping ingredients.

Dip each apple slice into the flour, then the egg, then the graham cracker mixture. Place the slices of apples in the air fryer in one layer and not touching.
Remove the air fryer apple wedges from the air fryer, drizzle with caramel sauce, if desired, and enjoy! When making airfryerapples, it’s best to use an apple that tastes good when warm and baked.
These apples provide an incredible sweetness that’s perfect for a dessert. Every time I try to cut my apples into slices, they range from tiny to huge.
I find peeling your apples lets the flour stick better, but it is possible to make this recipe with the skin still intact. I find a Y-Peeler peels apples much faster based on the way the blade sits when in your hand.
Spray the apples with an oil mister before air frying. Dip an apple wedge into the flour, then the egg, and lastly the graham cracker mixture making sure to coat the apple as good as possible each time.

In a small bowl, combine margarine, cinnamon, nutmeg, walnuts and raisins. In order to save space in the Hairdryer, I cut each ring in half, so they could be placed strategically in the basket.
I could have used the double layer rack to get more apples in each batch; however, since it was just the two of us, we didn’t really need that many slices per person. Since we’re in the middle of our kitchen remodel, I used paper plates for the cinnamon sugar coating.
We don’t currently have a dishwasher, so I’m using a lot more paper products than normal (thank you, Costco pack). For some things, I do still use normal dishes (like melting butter, or margarine for dairy-free option, in the microwave).
When we make savory dishes in the air fryer we just set the food in the basket and it cooks without any special pan. Some air fryers come with an accessory kit that include a baking pan and silicon cupcake molds but others don’t and you have to buy items separately.
I bought this smaller pie plate at a kitchen store and couldn’t wait to test it with my air fryer with this apple crisp recipe. Some examples of dishes that work in an air fryer are 4 oz ramekins, aluminum pans, Pyrex, and my ceramic 5 in pie dish that I bought at a kitchen supply store.
Cover the dish with the aluminum foil and bake for 15 minutes. Open up the air fryer and continue cooking for 5 more minutes uncovered.
To make the topping, combine the flour, sugars, salt, oatmeal, and cold butter in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on low speed until the mixture is crumbly and the butter is the size of peas.
Place the crisp back in your air fryer uncovered for 5 more minutes. An air fryer is a kitchen appliance that cooks by circulating hot air around the food using the convection mechanism.
If you are concerned about using aerosol sprays for the environment or your health buy a Mist Brushed Aluminum Oil Sprayer can from Amazon and fill that with your favorite oil. Preheat air fryer to 350 degrees F. Butter a 5in oval baking dish.
Open up the air fryer and continue cooking for 5 more minutes uncovered. To make the topping, combine the flour, sugars, salt, oatmeal, and cold butter in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment.
Mix on low speed until the mixture is crumbly and the butter is the size of peas. Place the crisp back in your air fryer uncovered for 5 more minutes.
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Add milk, eggs, lemon juice and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract; stir just until moistened.
Turn fritters; continue to air -fry until golden brown, 1-2 minutes. Melt butter in small saucepan over medium-high heat.
Carefully cook until butter starts to brown and foam, 5 minutes. Add confectioners' sugar, 1 tablespoon milk and remaining 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract to browned butter; whisk until smooth.
Apple chips are a delicious healthy snack that can be made right at home in your air fryer ! They’re simple to make, perfect for kids and adults, and have no added sugar.
I own the Philips 2.75 qt Viva Hairdryer (affiliate link! Frozen things that are normally baked or fried come out crispier than I’ve ever tasted.
There’s also a bigger version of this air fryer you should probably get if you’re trying to air fry for more than a couple of people at a time. If I’m going to go to all the work to slice, prep and then air fry an apple, I’ll take one on the larger side.
I have a two phase system for cooking apple chips in the air fryer unlike any other I’ve seen. While cooking the apple chips, during both the “drying” and “crisping” phases, it’s important to make sure all the apples get their own time exposed to the hot air.
If any apples slices are stuck together or are always in the middle of the pile, they won’t cook correctly. Give them each some air time” by moving the apples often, and rotating them between top, bottom and middle.
For maximum crispiness, I would enjoy the apple chips 10-20 minutes after they come out of the air fryer. They will last up to 5 days in a container at room temperature but will become soft overnight.
I try to make the apple chips about 1/8 of an inch thick. As I mentioned above, I have a two phase system for making apple chips in the air fryer.
I recommend continuing to cook the apples at this temperature until they no longer appear “shiny” or have any “wet” spots, at least 20 minutes but up to 30 minutes for larger apples. Make sure apples in the middle of the pile are rotated out to the top or bottom.
Once the apples are dried out, up the temperature to 325 degrees F. Cooking will happen much faster at this higher temperature, so you must stay near the air fryer and keep your attention on the air fryer. Chips will take 4-8 minutes total in this phase, depending on thickness and amount.
Check, flip and shake the apple chips every 90 seconds to 2 minutes. The chips will begin to fly around the inside of the air fryer during this phase.
I made this handy little graphic to show you exactly how I like my air fryer apple chips. The difference in cook time between all three of these examples is about 5 minutes, so you have to stay near your air fryer when crisping the chips.
Check even more often and have tongs ready to remove apple chips one at a time when they are done. For maximum crispiness, I would enjoy the apple chips 10-20 minutes after they come out of the air fryer.
They’re simple to make, perfect for kids and adults, and have no added sugar. Prepping the apples : Slice an apple using a mandolin slicer (preferred method) or a knife, making slices about 1/8 of an inch thick.
Toss apple slices in a bowl with cinnamon and oil. In the same way, I prefer to spray the oil lightly over the top, stir, and then give another light spray to try and disperse the oil evenly.
Drying the chips: Place all the apple slices into the air fryer basket. Continue cooking at this temperature until the apples appear completely dried out, with no more shiny or “wet” spots remaining.
If your chips are burning at all during this drying phase, lower the temperature of the air fryer by 25 degrees F. Crisping the chips: Once the apple slices appear completely dry, increase the air fryer temperature to 325F. Check, flip and shake the apple chips every 90 seconds to 2 minutes.
Chips will take 4-8 minutes total to crisp up, depending on thickness and amount. The chips will begin to fly around the inside of the air fryer during this phase.
For maximum crispiness, enjoy the apple chips 10-20 minutes after they come out of the air fryer. They will last up to 5 days in a container at room temperature but will become soft overnight.
I recommend air frying one apple’s worth of chips at a time, unless you have a larger size air fryer. Please note I use a Philips 2.75 qt Viva Hairdryer (affiliate link!).
