Air fryer apples are out of this world delicious. Tender, juicy apples are tossed in a buttery, maple syrup with warm notes of cinnamon. It tastes just like apple pie filling, but you only need 4 ingredients and 10 minutes!


  • 2 Pink Lady apples- peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup- divided
  • 4 teaspoons melted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt (optional)
  • Pinch of nutmeg (optional)


  1. Preheat your air fryer to 380 degrees F and spray the basket with avocado oil spray
  2. While the air fryer is preheating, peel your apples and cut them into thin slices
  3. Place the prepared apple slices into a large bowl and drizzle over 3 teaspoons of melted butter, 1 tablespoon of maple syrup,  cinnamon, salt and nutmeg (if using)
  4. Gently stir the apple slices to ensure everything is well coated, then pour them into your preheated air fryer basket
  5. Cook at 380 degrees F for 7-8 minutes until tender
  6. In a clean, large mixing bowl place your air fried apples and drizzle over the remaining 1 teaspoon of melted butter and 1 tablespoon of maple syrup
  7. Use a rubber spatula to stir them around and coat them in the sweet, buttery sauce
  8. Serve immediately and enjoy!
