Air Fryer Cinnamon Apples


  • 4-5 medium-sized apples (such as Granny Smith or Honeycrisp)
  • 1 tablespoon of melted butter or cooking spray (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
  • 1-2 tablespoons of granulated sugar or brown sugar (adjust to taste)
  • A pinch of salt (optional)
  • Optional toppings: whipped cream, vanilla ice cream, or caramel sauce


  1. Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Wash, peel (if desired), and core the apples. Then, slice them into thin, even rings or wedges. You can use an apple slicer to make this step easier.

  3. If you’d like to add a bit of extra flavor and help with the crisping process, you can lightly brush the apple slices with melted butter or use cooking spray to give them a light coating. This step is optional but can enhance the texture.
  4. In a mixing bowl, combine the cinnamon, sugar, and a pinch of salt (if using). Toss the apple slices in this mixture until they are evenly coated.
  5. Place the coated apple slices in a single layer in your air fryer basket. Avoid overcrowding, as this can prevent even cooking. You may need to cook the apples in batches, depending on the size of your air fryer.
  6. Air fry the apple slices for 10-15 minutes, checking on them periodically. Shake the basket or use tongs to turn the slices halfway through the cooking time to ensure even browning and crispiness.
  7. The cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of the apple slices and the specific model of your air fryer. You’re looking for the apples to become tender and slightly crispy with a nice golden-brown color.

  1. Once the apples are done, remove them from the air fryer, and let them cool slightly for a few minutes before serving.
  2. You can serve air fryer cinnamon apples on their own or with optional toppings like whipped cream, vanilla ice cream, or a drizzle of caramel sauce for extra indulgence…..
