Make delicious baked apples in an air fryer

You can make delicious and healthy baked apples in your air fryer! 

I love cooking for my family. I really do. They are a picky bunch, and it’s actually kind of fun to discover new ways to make the things that they love to eat.

I’ve learned how to make chicken a million different ways.

The same goes for egg dishes, ground turkey, and pasta.

There’s just one thing—I don’t like to spend a lot of time in the kitchen.

That’s why I like to keep my eyes open for appliances that will let me feed my family good food and shorten the time that it takes to do so!

An air fryer does that and more.

Not only can I cook some of our favorite foods faster, but it’s also a lot healthier than a lot of other food prep methods.

Since we’ve added an air fryer to our arsenal, we’ve made everything from chicken to french fries and everything in between.

To be honest, I was most excited to make dessert in it.

I LIVE for dessert, y’all!

Obviously all of that sugar isn’t good for me, so my new go-to is baked apples with crumble on top.

Air Fryer Baked apples with crumble 

With less than 10 minutes of prep time and 20 minutes in air fryer, I can feed my sweet tooth without a lot of effort, and no oil at all!

We have the Avalon Bay Digital Air Fryer which comes with a cookbook, so I adapted one of the recipes.

The crumble from this dish comes from that book.

What ingredients do you need to make Baked Apples in the air fryer?

Making baked apples in the air fryer doesn’t require a lot of ingredients. All you need is the following:

  • Granny Smith Apples: You’ll need about 4 medium sized apples. You can peel them or not depending on your taste.
  • Rolled Oats: I did not use quick oats, but I wish I would have. The rolled oats were a little more firm than I’d like, but still good.
  • Brown Sugar and Flour: These are standard in an apple crumble.
  • Butter: As with any recipe, the better the butter, the better it all tastes. Use high quality butter for the crumble. It makes a difference. 

Yield: 4 servings

Enjoyed watching your video! I tried this recipe today, and it was a success! I had these ingredients on hand so I used: Fuji apples, low sugar Quaker Cinnamon and Spice instant oatmeal packet, and 'I Can't Believe it's not Butter-Light' margarine, and the rest as in your recipe. I set the timer for 15 min @ 350 degrees. Cooked perfectly! This satisfied my craving for a sweet as I learn to follow the WW diet. Thanks -
