How to make apple fries in air fryer?
Step 1: Prepare the basket of your air fryer by spraying some olive oil. Then peel the apples and chop them into wedges. Then, combine the sugar and graham crackers in a small mixing bowl—whisk the eggs thoroughly with the help of a beater in another bowl, then add vanilla and salt.
Step 2: Before placing them in the graham cracker mixture, dip the apples in the egg mixture. (After each dip, shake to get rid of any excess). Once you’ve finished coating the apples, generously mist them with olive oil to help them crisp up. After that, place the apples in the prepared air fryer basket as you coat them.
For the caramel sauce: Blend the ingredients in a small mixing bowl until you get a smooth dip.

Step 3: For 8 to 10 minutes, turn the air fryer’s temperature to 380 degrees Fahrenheit. While the apple fries are frying, turn them with tongs halfway through. Spray them generously with olive oil after you’ve turned them over. Serve with caramel sauce & enjoy.
Note: Due to the wetness in the apples, these are best served hot from the air fryer; they do not reheat well.
Tricks to make the best air fryer apple fries:
- To begin, spritz some olive oil spray on the air fryer basket.
- Refrain from filling your basket. Make only one layer of these apple fries. Otherwise, they won’t cook correctly.
- Give the apple fries a spray of olive oil after flipping them to make them crisp.
- Serve with a tasty dipping sauce; cream cheese or caramel sauce are my favorites, but any dip is delicious and kid-friendly.
Which apples are best for use?
These air fryer apple wedges work with any apple you buy from the grocery store or an apple orchard. However, the ideal apple to use for these is a Granny Smith. They complement the sweetness of the graham cracker crumbs better because they are tangy, and Gold or Red Delicious apples do not go well with this recipe. The secret is to pick an apple that will maintain its shape during air frying. Use either a sweet or a sour apple; apple varieties include:
- Granny Smith Apples
- Honey crisp Apples
- Gala Apples
- Pink Lady
Should I peel the apple wedges before air-frying them?
That is a matter for you to decide. Whatever manner you choose, the recipe will still work. I peeled them since it is simple and because the apple is usually easier to eat when the skin is removed. They are easier to eat without the peel on, and I love them better, so if you have a peeler, give them a fast peel.
