Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, combine the syrup, melted butter (if using), cinnamon and tapioca starch. Mix well.
  • Wash your apples, remove any stickers and slice each apple into 8 wedges/segments, removing the seeds/core. Place the sliced apple wedges into the bowl and mix well to evenly coat.
  • Place half a cup of water at the bottom of your air fryer, below the basket. Then place the coated apples inside the basket in an even layer. Air fry at 380 degrees F for 12-15 minutes, until the apples are fork tender. Mix every 5 minutes or so. Serve warm.

Notes

If you have picky eaters, remove the apple peel before slicing and coating with the marinade for a smoother texture.Try and cut your apple wedges into equal size pieces for even cooking. If some pieces are larger, they won’t be as soft.Use your favourite apple variety. I like to mix sweet and tart apples, but use all sweet, or all tart, if preferred.Store leftovers in an air tight container in your fridge for 1-2 days.
