I’m a real lover of making easy and healthy snacks for my daughters. These Ninja Foodi apple chips are really easy, cheap and great fun too. They take just 10 minutes from start to finish and you can use ingredients from your pantry or store cupboard to add extra flavour.

As a busy working Mum of 2 lovely daughters I am always on the look out for simple snacks that don’t take up lots of my time either. These golden cinnamon flavoured apple chips are a real hit with my little ones. I love that I can make a batch of these up while I’m preparing dinner and they’ll keep for a couple of days in an air tight container.

My air fryer is a real workhorse for my family. I use it at least once a day, but often more. It makes us super crispy bacon for breakfast, delicious chicken tikka for quick and easy lunches and air fryer hunters chicken for dinner. I’ve made 100s of recipes in the last year alone and if you’re a fan of air fryer recipes then you’ll love my air fryer desserts too.

Ingredients for making apple chips in the Ninja air fryer:

3 red apples (we use seasonal ones when we can in the UK)

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Fruit scones cooked in the Ninja Foodi air fryer

Method for making Ninja Foodi apple chips:

Pre-heat your air fryer to 190C (375F approx).

Wash the apples well. I do not peel for this recipe. You can! (I like to cut down on food waste).

Slice to 2mm thickness/ I use a spiraliser, as this allows for a uniform cutting which ensures even cooking. You can use a mandolin or even one of the side cutters on a box grater.

Dust each of the apple slices carefully with a little cinnamon. How I do this is I spread the cinnamon on a plate then I rub each of the apple chips all over to try and make sure each side is coated evenly.

Place the apple chips in a single layer on the bottom of your air fryer basket.

Air fry for 4 minutes.

Turn over.

Air fry for 3-4 more minutes checking near the end of the cooking time to avoid burning.

Place on a cooling rack to cool down and crisp up even further.

We like to enjoy ours ‘as is’ for 1-2 days after making them. They go great with things like melted chocolate or Biscoff spread.

What are the best apples for apple chips?

I feel that a sweeter apple, such as gala, golden delicious, red delicious, Granny Smith or pink lady all work very well for these apple chips.

Apples with the highest water concentration will typically need a little time to cool on a cooling rack once fully cooked so they can crisp up well. They taste so good and it’s worth that extra bit of waiting time really for the perfect apple chips.

Do you use oil to make apple chips?

I have seen people using coconut oil for apple chips but I don’t feel this is necessary. If you’re going to try this recipe in the oven then you may want to use a little spray oil just to prevent them drying out, and add 50% to the cooking time.

Looking for some tasty sauce to dip these into?

Some times I will just microwave a little Nutella or Biscoff spread. This makes it lovely, thin and runny which is ideal for dipping and a little goes a long way.

Other times I will serve with my chocolate sauce (without cream) or salted caramel sauce. Both are delicious and really elevate this into a special treat.

Are apple chips better in the air fryer or dehydrator?

Personally I don’t always have myself organised enough to make the dehydrated apple chips overnight. Both are great, and if I could choose either I’d probably opt for dehydrated apple chips as they’re just perfection.

These apple chips are 7/10 though and great for when you want a simple snack. Try these dehydrator apple chips if you want that type of recipe instead. Looks great!

Something to note about air fryer recipes is that all air fryers have different sizes, depths and as such the cooking times can vary. All air fryer recipes on this website are intended as a guide, and not a guarantee that the timings will be perfect. Enjoy!
