Air Fried Apple Cinnamon Chips: The Healthier Way To Snack

It all started with an apple. We’re not talking biblically here, just in terms of snacking. Apples have always been a go-to when people are craving something crunchy, juicy and delicious. Humans are sensory creatures and the crunchy factor is a big reason why we lean more towards certain foods over others. While we chew, we can hear the crunch from within our ear canal creating a more satisfying overall experience. 

This method of frying up apples in an air fryer means an extra crispy finish with the coveted fried texture without any of the deep-frying hassles. The addition of sugar is optional but the cinnamon is a must-have as it creates the signature taste that makes every bite a little explosion of flavour. 



  • 1 large red delicious apple
  • 1 Tbsp castor sugar
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • Cooking spray


  • Peel the apple if desired and then evenly slice it into ⅛ inch slices and remove any seeds.
  • In a small bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon.
  • Sprinkle apple slices with cinnamon sugar mixture on both sides. Lightly spray the air fryer basket and then place the apple slices inside in a single layer.
  • Set the air fryer to 150°C and air fry for 15 minutes, tossing apple slices every 5 minutes until golden brown and almost crispy.
  • Set them to cool and enjoy them immediately.
