Ingredients for Air Fryer Apple Chips

Alright folks, here’s the lowdown on what you’ll need to make these awesome air fryer apple chips. Trust us, it’s super simple:

  • Apples: Grab a couple of your favorite kind. We love to use those crispy ones—think Gala or Honeycrisp.
  • Cinnamon: Just a pinch to add that warm, cozy flavor.
  • Olive oil spray: Helps the apple slices crisp up nicely.

That’s it! Just these few staples and you’re good to go.

Tips for Perfect Air Fryer Apple Chips

In terms of equipment, all you need is an air fryer and a mandoline (or sharp knife) to slice the apples thinly. Our tips for success:

  • Slice them thin: The thinner you slice the apple, the crispier your chips will be. If they’re too thick, they’ll end up chewy instead of crunchy.
  • Spread them out: Give each apple slice some space on the air fryer basket or tray. Overcrowding leads to uneven cooking and soggy chips.
  • Watch carefully: Keep an eye on them after the 5-minute mark so they don’t burn. They can go from perfect to burnt pretty quickly!

Variations and Substitutions

Alright, let’s chat about how you can jazz up those air fryer apple chips.

Feeling fancy? Sprinkle on some nutmeg or drizzle a bit of honey for extra sweetness. Craving something savory? Toss on a pinch of sea salt before air frying.

No cinnamon? No problem! Swap it out with pumpkin spice or ground ginger for a new twist.

And hey, if apples aren’t your thing, pear slices work pretty well too. Now go ahead and create your own crispy masterpieces!
