Air Fryer Apple Fries – An Easy & Delicious Fall Snack

This time of the year I love to make anything that is made with apples, including Air Fryer Apple Fries.

Right now the orchards are overflowing with a variety of ripe apples and I can never resist bringing a bag (or two) home with me.

And as much as I love Apple Crisp and Apple Hand Pies, I love to make these apple fries for a quick and delicious snack.

Warm apple wedges covered with a crispy graham cracker and sugar coating. Then they are served with warm caramel sauce for dipping. An absolutely delicious snack for all to enioy!

Air Fryer Apple Fries

INGREDIENTS

Gala apples, or any firm but sweet apple
All-Purpose Flour
Eggs
Graham cracker crumbs
Granulated Sugar
Caramel Sauce, for dipping

INSTRUCTIONS

Start by lining a large platter or baking sheet with wax paper or a silicone baking mat and set aside.

This will become the place where the prepared apple fries rest before they get put in the air fryer.

Now prepare a dredging station by placing the flour into a medium size, shallow bowl and set aside.

Then beat the eggs, and pour into another shallow dish and set aside.

Next, crush the graham crackers into fine crumbs. This is easiest done by using a large capacity food processor.

dredging station
Prepare a dredging station of flour, eggs, and graham cracker crumbs and sugar.

However, you can also place the graham crackers, broken into the segmented sections, in a large resealable plastic bag. Then use a rolling pin or mallet and crush them until they turn into fine crumbs.

Finally, in another shallow dish, add the crushed graham crackers and sugar and stir to mix, set aside.

Prepare The Apples

Now it is time to prepare the apples. Peel, core, then cut the apples into 8 wedges.

If you have an apple corer/wedger that makes 8 slices you can use that to make your air fryer apple fries. However, be sure to peel the apple first.

Once you have your apples ready, it is time to prepare the dredging station.

First, place your flour, beaten egg, and the graham cracker and sugar mixture side by side in that order.

Then working one at a time, place an apple wedge in the flour and coat all sides. Be sure to shake off any excess flour.

After the apple wedge has been coated in flour, dip it in the beat eggs and coat the entire surface.

Next dredge the apple in the beaten eggs, coating the entire apple wedge.

Finally roll the apple piece in the crushed graham cracker and sugar mixture. Lightly press the coating onto the apple so that it sticks.

When the apple wedge is coated all over, place it on the prepared platter or baking sheet. Now repeat the process until all the apple fries are coated.

Cooking Instructions

When you are ready to cook the apple fries, preheat the air fryer. Do this step even if your air fryer brand does not typically require preheating.

Then coat the bottom of the air fryer basket with a high heat oil such as olive or grapeseed oil.

Both the preheating and the coating of the oil on the basket will help prevent the apples from sticking to the surface. However, it will also help the breading from coming off as well.

Place the apple fries in a preheated air fryer basket and cook until golden brown.

When the air fryer is ready, lightly spray the apple pieces with oil on all sides, and place them in a single layer in the air fryer basket. Be sure to leave a little space between each one so that they cook evenly.

Depending on the size of your basket, you make need to work in batches if needed. Set the cook timer for 5 minutes.

Then use silicone tongs to turn the apple wedges over. Continue to cook for another 2 minutes or until the coating turns light brown.

Remove the apple fries from the air fryer and repeat to cook any remaining apples.

Before serving, heat the caramel sauce until warm and serve with the apple fries.
