I remember when Boston Market first opened in my hometown. My favorite item on the menu was the cinnamon sugar apples. They were soft, with a slight crisp; and they were a sweet end to the meal. A few years ago, I made some cinnamon sugar apples on the stove; a few weekends ago, I decided to see if I could make them in the Air Fryer!
My Air Fryer cinnamon sugar apples were a success and a great addition to our dinner.
Air Fryer Cinnamon Sugar Apples
One of the keys to these cinnamon sugar apples is to get even slices so that they will cook evenly. I sliced the apples into rings and then peeled and cored each ring. In order to save space in the Air Fryer, I cut each ring in half so they could be placed strategically in the basket.
I had bought a few medium sized apples and were able to fit two apples into the Air Fryer basket. I could have used the double layer rack to get more apples in each batch; however, since it was just the two of us, we didn’t really need that many slices per person.
Since we’re in the middle of our kitchen remodel, I used paper plates for the cinnamon sugar coating. We don’t currently have a dishwasher so I’m using a lot more paper products than normal (thank you Costco pack). For some things, I do still use normal dishes (like melting butter, or margarine for dairy-free option, in the microwave).
I absolutely LOVE the Philips AirFryer that was sent to me earlier this year. It has a HUGE basket, and a secondary rack can be added for even more space. I was able to fit the slices from two medium sized apples on a single layer of the basket. Another great feature of the Philips AirFryer is that it doesn’t need to be pre-heated, just hit the start button and it is good to go!
Throughout the remodel, we have attempted to have somewhat normal meals. Fortunately, we’ve had a relatively nice spring so we’ve been able to grill quite a bit, and the AirFryer has been essential as well. Since we don’t have any sort of kitchen table, we’ve set up a mini dining set on the deck thanks to a couple outdoor chairs and solid boxes.
- 2 Apples - peeled
- 6 Tablespoons Butter or Dairy-Free Butter Alternative
- 2 Tablespoons Cinnamon
- 2 Tablespoons Sugar
- 2 Tablespoons Butter
- Slice Apples into rings about ¼-1/2" thick
- Core and Peel the rings, cut into half
- Melt butter or a dairy-free alternative into a bowl
- Sprinkle part of the cinnamon-sugar mixture onto a plate
- Dip each slice into the butter then place onto the cinnamon-sugar coated plate
- Once the plate is covered in apple slices, sprinkle the top with more cinnamon-sugar
- Place the cinnamon-sugared apple slices in a single layer on the Air Fryer basket
- Cook at 350* for 8-10 minutes, or until fork tender
These cinnamon sugar apples would be great to make as part of your family meal, or do a couple large batches for a party. Brad and I were both a fan with how they turned out and can’t wait until we make them again.

Yummy! These look so good and especially easy made in the air fryer!
You don’t mention how much sugar you used in the mixture, but I will add enough for taste. Thanks!
Thanks for pointing that out! I’ve updated the recipe with how much sugar I used.
