Air Fryer Apple Chips Recipe Ingredients

All you will need to make this healthy snack are the following ingredients.

Apples– You can use any variety of apples for this air fryer recipe. Choose your favorite or select a variety of apples to create colorful cinnamon apple chips in the air fryer.

Olive Oil– I use olive oil to help prevent the apple chips from sticking together and it also helps to give the apple chips a crispy texture.

Cinnamon– I like to sprinkle a generous amount of ground cinnamon on these apple chips but you can omit this ingredient and choose a different spice to use if you would rather have a different flavor for your dehydrated apple chips.

How to Slice the Apples

To create a uniform thin apple slice it is recommended to use a mandoline slicer to create your apple chips.

This isn’t necessary but it does make the apples easier to slice and leaves you with perfectly thin apple slices.

If you don’t have a mandoline slicer but you have ninja-like knife skills, cut those apple slices as thin as you can.

This recipe is so easy that you don’t even have to core apples or peel them before starting the dehydration process.

Some people make apple chip recipes with the skin on and some create their apple chips with the skin off.

Choose whichever works best for you, I prefer to leave the skin on when making apple chips.

I think it gives these red delicious apples a stronger, bolder flavor.

How to Make Air Fryer Apple Chips

After you slice your apples, spread a little bit of olive oil on them. The next step is to sprinkle the apple slices with a teaspoon of cinnamon.

Place the slices into the Power Air Fryer Oven at 180 degrees for 15 minutes in a single layer.

Once the 15 minutes have ended the Power Air Fryer Oven will beep, very very loudly. Trust me you are not going to miss this beep!

The next step in making this homemade apple chip recipe stand out above the rest is to turn the apple slices in the Power Air Fryer Oven before putting them back in for another 10 minutes.

If you are making your crispy apple chips using a different air fryer that has an air fryer basket, this step may not be necessary.

The last step to perfectly dehydrated apple slices is to let them cool before serving.

I have found that the longer I let them cool on the rack, the crispier they are.

Be sure to store any leftovers in an airtight container but making apple chips fresh is always best.

Hey man if you don't pay attention when you were cooking with this thing you will find yourself asking "what beeps?"

Do you add them in a single layer? Or can they overlap each other?


Tuesday 21st of December 2021

I would suggest adding them in a single layer. Thanks for stopping by!

I have Fuji apples to try. For Christmas a neighbor gave us a small bag of dehydrated cinnamon sugar apples that were absolutely great. They were not crispy chips but more leathery, which we prefer. Do you think cutting the slices a bit thicker will allow for that texture ? Or is there another secret?


Monday 11th of January 2021

I would think that cutting the slices thicker would be a great way to make them more leathery and less crunchy. Good luck!

I have a test sample of two apples in a 12.7 quart air fryer oven. My gbaby and I are eagerly awaiting the crispy apple chips. I initially was interested in get them to the dehydration point of the apples my mama and I used to make hand pies from.


Wednesday 8th of April 2020

Ok now I have to have a hand pie, that just sounds wonderful. I hope you enjoyed the recipe, thanks for stopping by and commenting.

I made these according to your directions and neither the time to process nor the temperature worked for my apples. At this point, I’m up to 235 degrees, and it’s running for at least 15 mins per side. I’m using gravenstein and Fuji’s.


Tuesday 24th of September 2019

I am sorry to hear that this did not work for you. I used Red Delicious Apples, maybe that makes a difference as far as how moist the apple is and I cut them very, very thin before cooking. I hope this helps, and thanks for stopping by!
