  • 1 Air Fryer
  • 1 Mixing bowl


  • 4 large, sweet apples
  • 1 tbsp. avocado oil
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tsp. pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. coconut sugar
  • ½ tsp. pure vanilla extract


  • Prepare the apples by peeling them, coring them, and slicing into ½" thick slices.
  • Place sliced apples in a medium-sized mixing bowl and add avocado oil and cinnamon. Mix until cinnamon and oil are evenly distributed between apples.
  • Preheat air fryer to 380 degrees F. Once preheated, place apples in the air fryer basket in a single layer. It's okay if apples are slightly overlapping.
  • Air fry for roughly 12 minutes, or until apple slices are golden brown and can easily be pierced with a fork. Check apples after 10 minutes. Cooking time will vary depending on the size of your apple slices and your air fryer.
  • While the apples are cooking, whisk together the maple syrup, coconut sugar, and vanilla to create the glaze. Set aside until apples are done.
  • Place cooked apples in a small bowl. Drizzle with the maple glaze and stir until apples are coated. Sprinkle with additional cinnamon if desired.
  • Serve and enjoy!


  • No need to stir apples halfway through, unless apples are overlapping a ton, then you'll wan to stir at the halfway point. You can also air fry in batches. 
  • Leftovers should be stored in the fridge and will stay good for up to 5 days. They can also be frozen for up to 2 months.
