  • 1 large red delicious apple
  • 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • cooking spray


  • Evenly slice apple into 1/8th inch thick slices. Remove any seeds. Place in a single layer on a flat surface. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon.
  • Sprinkle apple slices with cinnamon sugar mixture on both sides. Lightly spray air fryer basket.
  • Add slices in air fryer basket, trying not to pile them on top of each other too much.
  • Set air fryer to 300°F. Air fry for 15 minutes, tossing apple slices every 5 minutes (and more often towards the end of the cooking time), until golden brown and almost crispy.
  • Set apple chips on a cooling rack to cool completely. Chips will continue to crisp up even more as they cool.
  • Serve immediately.


  1. If making a larger amount than 1 apple's worth of chips, I highly suggest cooking them in batches.  Otherwise the apples won't crisp up in an overloaded air fryer basket.
  2. If the apple chips are flying everywhere, I suggest topping them with a metal rack (like this one) during the cooking time.

Making Apple Chips in the Oven

  1. Preheat oven to 200°F.  Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Slice apples and season as directed.
  3. Spread apple slices in a single layer on the prepared baking sheets.
  4. Bake for 1 hour, then flip apple slices over and bake another 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
  5. Remove a single apple chip and let sit on the counter for a few minutes.  Take a bite and see how crisp it is.  If it's crispy, proceed with the next step.  If not, continue baking a bit.
  6. Leave the apple chips in the oven, but turn it off and let them sit there for another hour.  This helps them cool gradually, and crisp up even more.
