Air Fried Apples

These Air Fried Apples are the perfect lazy fall dessert. Hitting all of the flavor notes of apple pie without the hassle of a pie crust, these are so easy and yummy. The air fryer baked apples are topped with an oat crumble and must be served warm with ice cream on top. I promise these will be a hit!

  • 1 large granny smith apple, halved & cored*


  • 3 Tablespoons old fashioned oats
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon all purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 Tablespoon salted butter, melted


  • Review all recipe notes and instructions before beginning.
  • Place the apple halves cut side up in the air fryer basket.
  • Air fry at 350 degrees for 4-7 minutes, depending on the size.
  • While the apples are cooking, whisk together the oats, sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Pour the melted butter on top of the oat mixture and stir until well incorporated.
  • Once the apples are done, split the topping between each half, packing it on top.
  • Air fry for another 4-7 minutes or until tender and golden.


Refrigerator: Store leftover baked apples in an airtight container in the fridge for 3 days.
Reheating: Reheat air fryer apples in the microwave in 30 second increments until warm. I don’t recommend reheating these in the air fryer.  
Freezer: I do not recommend storing leftover air fried apples in the freezer.
Remove the core completely. Be sure to remove the core completely to make room for the oat crumble. 
Use foil to hold the apples up. If the apples are tilting and not standing up straight. Crumple up some foil to support them. Foil is totally safe to use in the air fryer.
