  • 3 Apples
  • ½ tsp. oil/butter
  • 1 tbsp. maple syrup or honey
  • 1 tbsp. brown sugar or jaggery
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon or pumpkin spice


  • Wash and core the apples. You can peel them but I left the peel on.
  • Now cut into slices that are equal sized.
  • Preheat air fryer at 180C or 360F for 3 minutes.
  • Brush the apple slices with oil/butter and lay in a single layer in air fryer.
  • Air fry for at 180C or 360F for about 10-12 minutes till they get cooked and start turning brown.
  • You will need more time in case your slices are thick. Also time will vary depending upon the model of your air fryer.
  • Take the slices in a bowl. Add maple syrup/honey on top and mix well. Now sprinkle cinnamon/pumpkin spice and brown sugar on top and mix well.
  • Consume warm or at room temperature.
  • This is best consumed fresh. Enjoy your sweet treat.


1. Use fresh apples that stay firm on cooking. Red delicious, Golden delicious, Fuji, Gala, Shimla or Granny Smith. Any firm apple works.
2. Make a simple sauce with butter/oil, maple syrup/honey, cinnamon/pumpkin spice, brown sugar/jaggery. It goes so well with air fried apples.
3. You need to use very little oil/butter while air frying apples to give them a nice golden brown look and a delicious taste.
4. If your apple is tart, then you will need to use more sweetener to balance out the taste.
5. Adjust sweetener as per taste.
6. Have it as is. It is delicious. If you are feeling indulgent, eat with ice cream or with some crunchy granola on top.
