These Air Fryer Apple Slices have slightly crispy edges with chewy centers. Not dehydrated like a chip (or break like a chip), these apple rings are a fun little delicious snack and a great way to adventure out with your air fryer recipe ideas.
No need for sugar; air fried apple slices have their homegrown sweetness and make a great after-school and nutritious snack.
Important Tip on Slicing Apples
Take your time cutting them into 1/8″ slices because the more uniform, the better. An apple corer and a mandoline slicer help with consistent and tiny slices.
SKIP THE WORK! Check out our top-rated (and Amazon’s top-rated) mandolin that will help keep your fruits and vegetables with the tiniest and most uniform slices! Mandolins are a major time saver for the holidays and will make sure your food is all cooked or baked at an even temperature.
No more half-done or half-underdone carrots, apples, or onions.
This product is one of my favorite kitchen tools; everyone should have one! As a reminder tip, USE THE SAFETY GLOVES.
When working with sharp kitchen tools, the blades on these devices are sharp (as they should be), and it’s easy to get a cut. This one comes with safety gloves!

Are air-fried apples the same as dehydrated apples?
No. Dehydrated apples can produce more crispy apple chips and are a different baking method (and machine).
Air Fryer apple rings with fresh apples (sliced apples) are a fun, healthy snack, but the texture is just to have crispy edges and chewy, softer centers.
How long do chewy apple rings last?
Enjoy these immediately or soon after making them. If left in a bag, they will continue to soften up.
What types of apples work best for apple rings?
Any variety of apples will work! Green apples, Pink Lady and Envy, are commonly used. Use your favorite apples!
Are Air Fryer Apples Crunchy like a chip?
These apples come out with crispy edges and chewy centers but are not crunchy like a chip. That is a different cooking method for homemade apple chips.
