Air Fryer Baked Apples

Air Fryer Baked Apples
  • Prep time: 20 Minutes
  • Cook time: 15 Minutes
  • Total time: 35 Minutes
  • Serves: 6


  • 6 large apples
  • 30 g (1.1 oz) unsalted butter, softened
  • 50 g (1.8 oz) brown sugar
  • 40 g (1.4 oz) walnuts, chopped
  • 50 g (1.8 oz) almond flour
  • 80 g (2.8 oz) raisins
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon, ground
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg, ground


  1. Core the apples and leave 1cm (1 inch) at the bottom so the filling will not fall out.
  2. Prick the outside of the apple with a skewer. It will help prevent the apple from exploding.
  3. Combine the butter, brown sugar, walnuts, almond flour, raisins, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a bowl.
  4. Fill the center of the apples with the filling mixture.
  5. Preheat the air fryer to 180°C (360°F). It should take roughly 5 minutes.
  6. Place the apples into the air fryer so the filling is facing upright.
  7. Cook for 15 minutes or until the apple is tender.
  8. Serve & Enjoy.

Recipe Tips

  • Use an apple corer for the best results. Alternatively, a paring knife will work just as well. Be careful not to cut yourself.
  • Piercing the apple skin with a skewer will help stop the apple from exploding.
  • You can use a skewer to check if the apple is tender. Depending on the size of the apple, you may need to cook it for longer than the specified time.
  • Cover the apples with foil if the filling is cooking too fast and the apples are not tender.
