Air Fried Apple Slices


Nothing better represents the Fall season than the smell of baked apples and pumpkin spice. This apple recipe is so simple, requiring only four ingredients. It’s sure to satisfy a sweet tooth, perfect for a snack or dessert.

Apples are a great source of vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant, as well as fiber, which can aid in digestion. Pumpkin pie spice contains cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, allspice, and ginger, all of which are high in antioxidants. Antioxidants help support healthy immune function.

Air fryers have become a popular kitchen appliance within the last few years, with an estimated 40% of US homes now owning one. Air fryers are appealing because of the speed they cook food, and because they require much less oil than traditional deep frying and oven frying. This recipe only calls for ½ teaspoon of oil per serving and takes around 10 minutes to make. You’ll surely be making this sweet treat time and time again!
