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

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

Here are my favorite apples to bake with in order:

  • Granny Smith Apples – These apples may be tart when eaten, but when being baked with sugar, they give your dessert the perfect sweet flavor.
  • Gala Apples – These are my favorite apple for eating and my second favorite to bake with. They are sweet to eat and provide a lot of sweet flavors when baked. I love making my Instant Pot Strawberry Applesauce with these apples too.
  • Honey Crisp Apples – The word honey says it all. These apples provide an incredible sweetness that’s perfect for a dessert.

Tips For Putting Together This Air Fryer Apple Dessert

  • Use an inexpensive apple corer to cut your apples into even wedges. Every time I try to cut my apples into slices, they range from tiny to huge. Using an apple corer avoids that so you air fryer apple slices cook evenly.
  • 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 Y-Peeler or an apple peeler if you choose to peel your apples. I find a Y-Peeler peels apples much faster based on the way the blade sits when in your hand.
  • You can skip 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 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!

Tips for Cooking and Serving Air Fryer Apples

  •  Spray the apples with an oil mister before air frying. I love to use my EVO Oil Sprayer on the wide sprayer setting so it evenly coats the apples in just 1-2 sprays.
  • If the apples still look a little dry when flipping, spritz them with a little more oil. It goes a long way!
