Step 1: Prepare the apples

Start by peeling and slicing the apples.

Step 2: Toss

Add the peeled and sliced apples to a large bowl, then add the olive oil, ground cinnamon, and pure vanilla extract. Toss until all slices are coated.

Step 3: Air fry

Place your apples into the air fryer basket, then set the cooking time for 8-10 minutes at 380 degrees F. For best results, shake the basket frequently as they cook.

Step 4: Serve

For serving, combine the butter, granulated sugar, and ground cinnamon to a shallow bowl. Toss the cooked fried apples in the mixture right before serving.

Pro Tips For Air Fryer Apples With Cinnamon

  • Cutting Your Apples: Since apples tend to brown quickly, you must fry them quickly after slicing. This is not a great recipe to prep ahead of time.
  • Apples: For best results, choose fresh and firm apples. I have listed some of the best apples to air fry below.
  • Timing: Since all air fryers are slightly different, you must watch the fruit as it fries up and remove it when the slices are soft.
  • Crowding: Don’t crowd the air fryer basket! Allow plenty of space for the hot air to circulate around the apples!

Can You Put Fresh Fruit In An Air Fryer?

Yes — this air fryer cinnamon apples recipe is living proof! No need to pre-cook them in the microwave or oven first. Simply add the sliced apples directly into the basket and let your air fryer work its magic.

What Are The Best Apples To Fry?

While you can make air fried apples with many different varieties, some are better than others. Some of the best apples to fry include Fuji and Honeycrisp apples. These varieties have firm flesh and a crisp texture that holds up well when fried.

Additionally, Fuji and Honeycrisp apples are widely available at most grocery stores, making them easy to find and cook. If you prefer yours to be more tart, use Granny Smith instead.

How To Store Air Fried Apples

You can store fried cinnamon apples for up to 5 days in an airtight container in the fridge. When it’s time to enjoy the sweet treat again, pop them into a microwave or back in the air fryer at 350°F — reheat, and they’re ready to eat within minutes!

How To Serve Fried Apples

Looking for a delicious and easy air fryer dessert to impress your guests? Look no further than fried apples with cinnamon topped with ice cream and whipped cream.

Once your apples are cooked to perfection, top them with a scoop of ice cream and a dollop of whipped cream. Sprinkle on some of your favorite spices, such as cinnamon or nutmeg, to add extra flavor and texture.

Whether you’re serving them for dessert or as a sweet treat alongside your breakfast or brunch, air fryer apples are the perfect way to satisfy your sweet tooth quickly.
