These air fried apple slices get that perfect mix of crispiness and sweetness. They’re like spiced cinnamon apples but much healthier without all the extra oil.

It’s a simple recipe that is great snack for the kids and one of my favorite apple slice recipes in general!

What Kind of Apples Should I Use in My Air Fryer Apple Dessert?

When making air fryer apple slices, it’s best to use a crisp apple that tastes good when warm and baked.

I use Granny Smith Apples in this recipe, but these other apple varieties work great as well!

  • Gala Apples
  • Honey Crisp Apples
  • Jonagold
  • Golden Delicious
  • Cortland
  • Braeburn

Can You Put Fruit in an Air Fryer?

Yes! Air frying fruit comes out roasted, sweet, and delicious!

I’ve air fried fruits including apples, bananas, pears, peaches, and more!

Tips to Air Fry Apple Slices

  • You don’t have to peel your apples! I find peeling your apples lets the flour stick better, but it is possible to make this recipe with the skin still intact.
  • Use a food processor to crush up the graham cracker crumbs. If you don’t have a food processor or don’t want to clean it (I get it), place the graham crackers in a sealed Ziploc gallon bag and roll/hit it with a rolling pin until you have crumbs!
  • If the apple fries in the air fryer still look a little dry when flipping, spritz them with a little more oil — It goes a long way!
  • Put the apple bites in a single layer in the air fryer basket to allow them to cook evenly
  • The apple slices are done cooking when they are soft, but still firm to the touch

How Long to Cook Air Fryer Apples

Apple wedges only take about 5 to 6 minutes to cook.

If you’re using thicker apple slices, allow them to cook for an additional 1 to 2 minutes.

If using thinner apple slices, check your apples around the 4 to 5-minute mark

Variations for Apple Fries in the Air Fryer

  • Swap the graham cracker crumbs for crushed vanilla wafers
  • Omit the cinnamon — This air fryer apple recipe has been tested with cinnamon and without cinnamon, so if you’re allergic, you can still enjoy this delicious dessert!
  • Use apple pie spice in place of cinnamon to make this taste like air fryer fried apple pie

How to Reheat Sliced Apples in the Air fryer

  1. Preheat your air fryer to 380 degrees.
  2. Air fry the fried apple sticks for 3 to 4 minutes until heated thoroughly and the graham cracker crumbs are crispy.

    • Hi Joan, make sure you let the excess egg drip off the egg. If you let it cake up, yes, it can become eggy, but a normal amount will taste just like any other breading would taste.
