Air Fryer Baked Apples

Learn to make Air Fryer Baked Apples for a quick and healthy dessert that everyone loves. This apple dessert is full of cinnamon flavor with a crunchy and sweet oat filling. Gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan.

  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 6 1x


Units Scale
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 3 Red or green apples
  • 1/3 cup rolled oats (gluten-free, if necessary)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar or coconut sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Spray the inside of your air fryer basket with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Wash your apples and cut them in half. Use a spoon or melon baller to scoop out the seeds and the core of each half of the apple
  3. Lay the apples skin side down in the basket of your air fryer. If the apples don’t want to lay flat, you can slice a tiny amount of the skin off to help them balance. Bake them for 10 minutes at 350°F to soften.
  4. While the apples are baking, combine the oats, coconut oil, sugar, and cinnamon in a small bowl. Stir to combine.
  5. After the 10 minutes are up, open the air fryer basket. Use a spoon to divide the oat mixture between the apples (about 1 ½ tablespoons per apple half).
  6. Close the air fryer and cook the apples for an additional 10 minutes.
  7. Let the apples cool for 5 minutes before serving.


  1. If you want to make a topping for your baked apples, you can use dairy-free whipped cream (or regular whipped cream if you aren’t dairy-free or vegan).
  2. If you aren’t dairy-free, you can also use butter in place of coconut oil.
  3. If you want this recipe to be gluten-free be sure to buy oats labeled or certified gluten-free. Oats are processed in facilities around gluten containing grains and are likely contaminated.
