Sorry about the one blurry photo.

I realized my camera settings somehow inadvertently got changed and I’ve fixed them but they were bad for a few of these photos.

It’s finally coming into Fall here in St. Louis.

We are getting cooler weather here and there.

Which is fantastic and I’m SO ready.


I know you probably don’t care, because you’re here for the recipe.

However I was super excited my bestie and I got an outdoor propane fireplace for our patio and I’m super excited to get to spend some cool nights out there enjoying it.

I need it to get cooler so I can wrap myself in a my traditional fall wear (a sweater and stretch pants) and enjoy it.

These Air Fryer Cinnamon Apple Rings go incredibly well with a cup of hot coffee and a nice evening around the fireplace OR a GREAT after school snack!

Air Fryer Cinnamon Apple Rings

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 18 minutes
Total Time: 28 minutes


For Coating:

  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ½ tsp cinnamon


  1. Preheat air fryer to 380 degrees.
  2. Prep the apple rings: peel, core, then cut the apples into rings. I use this tool and then slice to shape.
  3. Add the flour, sugar and cinnamon into a medium size bowl. Mix. Set aside.
  4. Beat the eggs, pour into a shallow dish. Mix in the milk. Add to the flour mixture stirring to combine.
  5. In another shallow dish, mix together the sugar and cinnamon for the topping.
  6. Dip your apple rings into your batter and allow excess batter to drip off. Place on a sheet of parchment paper.
  7. Now dip each ring in the cinnamon sugar mixture. If you need some more, go ahead and mix up a little more.
  8. Spray the bottom of the air fryer basket with cooking spray - thoroughly.
  9. Place the rings in the bottom of the air fryer separated and not touching. You will need to do these in batches.
  10. Spray the apple slices with a light coat of cooking oil and air fry the apples for 5 minutes.
  11. Remove the basket and flip the apples over. Air fry an additional 2-3 minutes or until apple slices look done.
  12. When finished, remove from basket, allow to cool for about 10 minutes and serve with caramel sauce.
  13. These Air Fryer Cinnamon Apple Rings can be stored in an airtight container for about 2 days.

To be honest, any apple you'd like to use would be ok. We've made these a lot and we've used all kinds. I have a preference PERSONALLY for a Granny Smith because they are my favorites, but we've used any apples we happen to have in the kitchen. They've all worked out. Pick your favorite and have fun! I hope you love them as much as we do!
