Air Fryer Baked Apples

I grew up eating apples pan cooked in a skillet. That was my dad’s treat he would make me after kindergarten. So making a baked apple that is stuffed with oats and nuts always reminds me of him.

How To Make Baked Apples In Air Fryer

  1. To make these stuffed apples, you will first wash and prep your apples.
  2. You will remove the core of the apple. Make sure to not cut the bottom of the apple. I used a corer and melon scooper to remove the center of the apple.
  3. Then in a bowl mix up the filling, and spoon into each apple.
  4. Place in the air fryer and cook until they are tender and cooked through. This takes around 15 minutes.

What Are The Best Apples For Stuffed Baked Apples

I love using Honeycrisp apples. They let off a sweet flavor that adds to the apples. But you are welcome to use other types of baking apples.

You want an apple that can hold up when it is baked. Otherwise, the apple can break down too much and fall apart.
