Tips for Making Air Fryer Baked Apples:
One of the most important steps to making these baked apples is being able to cut the core out of the apple without cutting it all the way through.
Carefully cut or spoon out the core of the apple. If you get some pieces of apple that were not supposed to come out, you can save those and use them in the filling later, so just set those aside.
The topping will be a mix of sugared oats, it can even be topped to serve with some Air Fryer Granola too. We always serve these with a scoop of vanilla ice cream too. It’s a must!
Plus, add a drizzle of Homemade Caramel Sauce too.
A few variations can be made to this recipe for instance, you can either add the air fryer granola or add some chocolate chips on top to serve them.
A few extra spices can make them have a bit more flavor like Nutmeg or Apple Pie Spice.
Get creative and let the kids help make them too!
How do you store the Air Fryer Baked Apples?
These are always going to be best served fresh; however, you can store them for up to 2 days in an airtight container in the fridge.
Be sure to fully cool the apples before storing them.
Once you are ready to serve these, go ahead and air fry them at 350°F for 2-3 minutes.

Air Fryer Baked Apples
- 2 Apples (Cleaned, not Peeled)
- 2 Tbsp Salted Butter, Melted
- 1 Tsp Ground Cinnamon
- 1/4 Cup Old Fashioned Oats
- 2 Tbsp Chopped Pecans
- 2 Tbsp Packed Brown Sugar
- 1 Tsp Ground Cinnamon
- 2 Tbsp Butter, Melted
- Clean the apples but do not peel them.
- Using a spoon or a knife, remove the core of the apple. Be careful not to cut it all the way through. If you have some of the apple that is not the core, you can set those aside and use them for the topping.
- Mix the melted butter and ground cinnamon in a small bowl.
- Using a pastry brush, brush the mixture on the apple and inside the apple where the core was removed. Set aside.
- In a medium size bowl, mix the ingredients for the topping. This is the oats, pecans, brown sugar, cinnamon, and butter. If you have any additional apple pieces from earlier, mix those in. Mix until well combined.
- Add the oat mixture equally into both apples.
- Add 1/2 cup of water to the basket of the air fryer.
- Carefully place the apples in the air fryer basket and air fry at 350°F for 13-15 minutes. It's best to start checking them at 10 minutes as all air fryers heat differently.
- Serve and enjoy!
