The Best Apples To Use

We used Granny Smith apples because of their tart flavor. Granny Smith apples are great for apple crisps. If you don’t have Granny Smith apples, pink lady, honey crisp, or fuji apples will work. These apples have a sweeter flavor than Granny Smith apples.

How To Make Air Fryer Apple Crisp

Step 1: Preheat your air fryer to 375° F (190° C).

Step 2: Peel and core the apples. Then, chop them into even-sized small pieces.

Step 3: Add the chopped apples, vanilla extract, lemon juice, sweetener, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt to a large bowl. Next, thoroughly mix to coat the apples.

Step 4: Lightly spray a heat-safe ramekin with oil. After that, pour the apple mixture into the ramekin. Then, place the ramekin in the air fryer basket. Air fry the apples for 12-14 minutes and mix halfway through.

Step 5: While the apples cook, combine the quick oats, sweetener, cinnamon, salt, and light butter in a bowl.

Step 6: Pour the oat topping over the ramekin with the cooked apples. Then, air fry for another 5-7 minutes or until the topping is crispy.

Step 7: Carefully remove the ramekin from the air fryer. Wear oven mitts because the ramekin will be very hot.

How Long To Cook Apple Crisp In Air Fryer

You can easily and quickly cook apple crisp in the air fryer. Add the heat-safe ramekin with the chopped apples mixture to the air fryer and air fry at 375° F (190°C) for 12-14 minutes. Then, add the oat topping and air fry for another 5-7 minutes.

Expert Tips

  • Peel The Apples: For the best flavor, peel the apples before making this apple crisp.
  • Small Pieces: Chop the apple into small pieces so it cooks quickly.
  • Even Pieces: Cut the apple into even pieces. It helps ensure the apples cook at the same rate in the air fryer.
  • Use Quick Oats: We love using quick oats for the topping because they have a finer consistency than rolled oats and cook faster in the air fryer.
  • Preheat Air Fryer: Preheat your air fryer while you mix the apples and the oat topping so it is ready.
  • Use A Heat-Safe Ramekin: Make sure to use an oven-safe, heat-safe ramekin in the air fryer.
  • Mix Halfway: Mix the apples with a fork or spoon halfway through cooking them.
  • Carefully Remove The Ramekin: Be careful removing the ramekin from the air fryer, as it will be hot. Wear oven mitts and carefully remove the ramekin.

How To Serve Air Fryer Apple Crisp

Serve this air fryer apple crisp warm after making it. It is the perfect single-serving size for one or two. Enjoy it on its own or with your favorite vanilla ice cream, caramel sauce, or whipped cream topping!

Recipe Variations

  • Oats: We used quick oats because they are the perfect size for the oat topping. They are smaller than rolled oats and are the ideal size. Also, they allow the oat crumble topping to cook quickly in the air fryer. If you don’t have quick oats, you can use rolled oats. The topping may take longer to cook. It may need 1-2 minutes longer, so keep an eye on it so it doesn’t burn.
  • How Many Apples To Use: This apple crisp makes the perfect amount for a single serving. You will need 1 cup of diced apples, from about 1-2 apples, depending on the size of the apples.
  • Make More Servings: Double or triple this recipe to make more servings. You can distribute the apples and oat topping to separate individual heat-safe ramekins. Or, make a large apple crisp in a large heat-safe ramekin or baking dish.

    1. What light butter do you use? Not margarine right?

      • Hello, Land o Lakes light butter with canola oil or Kerrygold light butter are great options. Or, any light butter or regular butter will work. I’m sure any butter that you have should work fine. I hope this helps and you enjoy this apple crisp!
