Air fryer apple chips are a quick and easy crispy apple chip recipe! Just 15 minutes from start to finish is all it takes to make these chips. Apples, salt, and cinnamon are all you need. Skip buying apple chips, and make your own using your air fryer.
This is a straightforward and fun recipe. I made them with my son, and he loved using the mandoline, be forewarned, though. If you are going to use one, invest in a pair of gloves to protect your hands. That tool is very sharp!
IF you are looking for even more air fryer fruit recipes, some of my favorites are AIR FRYER BANANA CHIPS, AIR FRYER APPLE DUMPLINGS, AIR FRYER RUM SOAKED PINEAPPLE, and AIR FRYER BRAZILIAN GRILLED PINEAPPLE.
What Are Air Fryer Apple Chips?
These are great snacks for the entire family. I used to purchase them at my local apple orchard; they are better and less expensive.
They are a great and healthy alternative to potato chips! You can use your air fryer to make a tasty and crispy snack.
Air Fryer Apple Chips
Everyone loves apples. Now everyone can enjoy a great crispy chip with a touch of cinnamon, in less than 10 minutes, from start to finish. The salt is necessary as it draws out the water, leaving you with a crispy chip; if you are on a low-salt diet, you can still make this recipe. The chips will not be very crispy, though.
Here are the step-by-step instructions on how to make this in your own air fryer—no need to peel. Just remove the stem, and adjust your mandoline to the thickness you want. I used about a 1/6-1/8 inch thick. Just dispose of the seeds.
Why Make These Apple Chips
- Simple and easy prep.
- Quick air frying time.
- Healthy snack option.
- Affordable option to make and eat, compared to buying store-bought.
What isn’t to love about these crisp apples? I think you will love how easy the recipe is and tasty. Kids and adults will love to nibble on these apples.
Place them on your air fryer tray or in the air fryer basket. Sprinkle with some salt, which will help draw out some of the moisture. If you don’t use the salt, you will find it makes the chips not as crispy. They will have a softer texture but still taste delicious.
What Are The Best Apples For Chips

You can use any of your favorite apples. The biggest thing is making sure you use an apple you enjoy. You will find that Granny Smiths offer a tarter flavor. So I do recommend reaching for a sweeter apple.
How Long Will Apple Chips Last
You can store your apple chips in an airtight container or bag once the apples have fully cooled. Just store the apples for up to a week. Use your best judgment in terms of when you need to toss them out.
The apples will taste best when eaten fresh straight from the air fryer.
How Long Do You Cook Apple Air Fryer Chips
Set in the air fryer and set the temperature to 400 degrees F for 8 to 10 minutes. After 5 minutes, flip the chips, and then continue to air fryer (finishing the other 5 minutes)—air fryer setting.

How To Make Apple Chips In The Air Fryer
Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F, air fryer setting. Prepare air fryer basket or tray by spraying lightly with vegetable cooking spray: core and slice apples between 1/6th to 1/8th inch thickness.
In a medium-sized bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. Dredge apple slices through cinnamon and sugar mixture until well coated.
Place coated apple slices in a single layer in the air fryer basket evenly (you may need to work in batches). Cook for eight to ten minutes, stopping to flip the slices halfway through cooking. Remove from air fryer and allow apple slices to cool on wire rack.
Are Apple Chips Healthy
Are Apple Chips Good For You
Apple chips are a low-fat snack option. Apples are naturally sweet and have a nice amount of fiber in them. If wanting to make a good choice for a snack to nibble on, you will find these apple chips are a great option.
The cinnamon dusting helps to add some warmth of flavor to the apples. But you can leave that off or swap with another spice you prefer.
Can I make Apple Chips using an Air Fryer Lid or Crisp Lid?
Absolutely, I have used both the Meathy Multipost and the Air Fryer Instant Pot Lid, and they come out the same.
I have also made these in the Ninja Foodi; you follow the same directions.
How Long Does It Take To Dehyrade Apples in An Air Fryer?
It takes about 7 to 8 hours. The key to a really great air fryer dehydrates apples is the low temperature of 135 degrees F.
Due to the differences in air fryers, it’s best to frequently check on your apples to ensure they are derided enough before removing them from the air fryer.
