Dried apples are a delicious and healthy snack, but they can be expensive to buy. If you have an air fryer, you can make your own at home.
Air fryers work by circulating hot air around food, making them ideal for drying fruit. The key to making good apple chips is to slice the apples thinly and evenly. It is also important to cook them at a low temperature so that they dry out slowly and evenly without burning.
Once you have mastered the basic technique, you can experiment different types of apples and seasonings. This guide will show you how to make apple chips in an air fryer.
What You Need
1.an air fryer
4.non-stick cooking spray
1. Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Cut your apples into thin slices, about 1/8-inch thick. If you have a mandoline slicer, this will make the job much easier.
3. Place the apple slices in a large bowl and toss with cinnamon sugar until evenly coated.
4. Spray the basket of your air fryer with non-stick cooking spray and then add the apple slices in a single layer, making sure that they are not touching each other.
5. Cook for about 15 minutes, or until the apples are crisp and slightly browned around the edges. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container for later.
Preheat air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Peel apples and cut into very thin slices. Place in a large bowl.
In a small bowl, mix together 1/4 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, and 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg. Sprinkle over apples and toss to coat evenly.
Working in batches, place apple slices in a single layer in the basket of the air fryer. Cook for 6 minutes, or until apples are crisp and browned around the edges. Remove to a wire rack to cool.
Cooking the Chips
Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. While it’s preheating, slice the apples into thin chips. If they’re too thick, they won’t cook evenly.
Place the apple chips in the air fryer basket, making sure they’re not touching each other. Cook for 10 minutes, then remove the basket and shake it gently to flip the chips over. Cook for another 5-7 minutes, or until they’re crispy and browned to your liking.
Let the chips cool for a few minutes on a wire rack before serving. Enjoy!
Tips and Tricks
Although you can use any type of apple for this recipe, we prefer Granny Smith apples because of their tart flavor and firm texture. Other good options include Honeycrisp, Braeburn, and Golden Delicious apples.
For the thinnest, crispiest apple chips, use a mandoline to slice the apples as thinly as possible. If you don’t have a mandoline, you can use a sharp knife, but your apple chips won’t be as uniform in thickness.
To help the apple chips cook evenly, arrange them in a single layer in the air fryer basket with plenty of space around each slice. If necessary, cook the chips in batches to avoid overcrowding.
Now that you know how to make apple chips in an air fryer, you can enjoy this tasty snack any time you like. Be sure to experiment with different flavors and seasonings find your perfect combination. Enjoy!
