Notes

Tips for Making Air Fryer Apple Chips
  • Using a mandolin to slice the apples works best. But if that is not an option, make sure to use a sharp knife.
  • Try to make sure the apple slices are all the same thickness so they will cook at the same rate.
  • If they are not all the same size, divide into batches according to thickness and cook similar size slices together.
  • If some slices are cooking quicker than others, simply remove the quicker cooking ones earlier.
  • Air fryer temperatures can vary depending on the make and model, so this recipe includes a range of suggested cook times.
  • Cook time will also depend on the thickness of your apple slices. If they are very thin they may cook a bit quicker.
  • I suggest not cutting them tooooo thin, as they can then burn without actually crisping up.
  • Note that your apple chips may not be fully crispy when done, but don’t fret. They will crisp upon cooling.
  • I like to make my apple chips crisper for snacking, but softer for topping granola.
  • For a different flavour profile, follow this recipe and use pears instead of apples.
Chef’s Tip: You will have to turn and flatten the apple slices about 2-3 times during cooking, as they move about and may end up touching the top of the air fryer and burning.
