Let’s be honest: If you’re craving super-crispy, crunchy apple chips, baking them in the oven just isn’t going to cut it. The air fryer, on the other hand, will never fail to deliver.

This recipe couldn’t be easier. You’ll start by thinly slicing an apple (any variety will work, though a red apple produces extra-pretty chips), and if you have a mandoline, use it: the thinner the slice, the crispier the chip. Toss the slices with cinnamon and nutmeg, place an even layer into a preheated air fryer, coat with cooking spray, and fry until golden. You’ll have a delicious snack in less than 10 minutes. For maximum crunchiness, let cool completely before diving in.

Nutritional Info

Ingredients

  • 1

    medium red apple

  • 1/2 teaspoon

    ground cinnamon

  • 1/4 teaspoon

    ground nutmeg

  • Cooking spray

Instructions

  1. Thinly slice apple into 1/8-inch-thick slices with a knife or preferably on a mandoline. Toss the apple slices with 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg.

  2. Preheat an Instant Vortex Plus 7-in-1 Air Fryer Oven to 365ºF and set for 14 minutes. Coat the air fryer basket with cooking spray. Place an single layer of apple slices into basket and spray with cooking spray. Air fry until golden-brown, rotating the trays halfway through to help keep the apples flat, about 7 minutes total. Let the chips cool completely to crisp. Repeat with air frying the remaining apple slices.
