Looking for ooey, gooey and cinnamony-sweet apples? Look no further! You can make easy soft apples with cinnamon and sugar that are incredibly delicious over ice cream or just to eat alone. Get ready for the simplest air fryer apple recipe EVER!
There is no doubt that apples are a quintessential fall favorite.
From apple pie, to diced apples, to apple dump cake, there are so many varieties of apples that make seasonal recipes a snap.
And with an air fryer, its so easy to soften up some apples in under 15 minutes so no matter whether its Thanksgiving or Christmas or you are just dying for the smell and taste of apples year round, they will be there to comfort you. This particular recipe has been created with my 6.5 quart Ninja Foodi Air Fryer, one of my top 5 kitchen essential items, but I am sure its easily transferable to your own air fryer brand as well.
Air Fryer Cinnamon Apples
✔ Ninja Foodi 6.5 quart ✔ Air Crisp Lid ✔ Fall Favorite
To get started, gather the following ingredients for air fryer apples.
- 2-3 apples, cored and sliced
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- nonstick cooking spray
- vanilla ice cream (optional but tastes amazing!)
Apple Skins on or Apple Skins off?
When it comes to this recipe, the apple skins can be left on or the apple skins can be taken off. This is more of a preference thing.
Use an apple corer and slicer for even apple cuts and then if chosen, a paring knife to carefully remove skins leaving as much of the apple flesh as possible. If you do not have an apple corer, they are a great kitchen item that makes apple recipes or simply eating apples a lot easier. Smooth even slices every time! Apple corers can be bought at Walmart, target, or amazon.
Baked Apples in Air Fryer
Place clean, sliced (and if you are taking off the skins, do that) apples in a shallow dish.
Add about 1/2″ of water and microwave for 2 minutes.
Set apples aside to cool.
Mix together cinnamon and white sugar.
Coat apples with cinnamon and sugar and place apples into the black inner Air Crisp Ninja Foodi air fryer basket.
Keep apples in a single layer and make sure they do not touch.
Spray apples with nonstick cooking spray.
Set Foodi to air crisp at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Remember that you can lift the air crisp lid easily to check on apple slices.
When cooking is complete, remove hot apples and serve with vanilla ice cream if desired.
