In this recipe, you’ll want to use Gala apples. They’re sweet, they smell great, and the texture makes them ideal for this recipe and lots of others.

Gala apples are truly an all-purpose apple. If you dislike soft, sort of mushy apples, you can’t go wrong with a chilled Gala.

Making apple fries

Prepping these apple slices sort of compares to getting chicken ready to fry. It’s all about the “layered” coating.

Toss the wedges into the flour. Next, dredge them in the beaten egg. And finally, roll them in the sugar and crushed graham cracker mixture.

The recipe isn’t hard, and not terribly time-consuming. Betcha your family will love them!

    I would like to know what sprayer you use for your oil. I have tried a couple sprayers but they glop, there is no fine spray. I gave up with the air fry “fried” food. I do use it for other foods tho. Thanks..

    1. Love my avacado oil spray-one of the higher smoking point oils.   Just make sure you get just the spray oil and not propellants.

  2. I would like to learn how to make apple fritters and Apple fryer I do by I just bought myself an apple fryer

  3. 5 stars
    Wow, this is not something that I would have tried in my air fryer. I always forget about desserts. I’ll have to start adding them to my list. Thanks!

    Can you use gluten free flour in place of regular flour? Same question with gf grshdm crackers? Has anyone tried this?

  5. Learn definitions 
    Dredge = very simple cooking technique: Dredging. There’s no need to overcomplicate it. The basic dredge definition is to lightly coat a food in a dry ingredient, such as flour, cornmeal, or breadcrumbs. That’s it! Often, you’ll dredge foods before frying to crisp and add golden color to whatever dry ingredient you used for dredging. Many recipes call for dredging in combination with dipping in a liquid (such as eggs or buttermilk) and then a seasoned coating. That is actually breading, more on that below. Dredging is just the part where you coat food in a dry ingredient, flour being the most common dredge used.

  6. I can’t wait to try this! (You might want to double-check your instructions. I believe #12 duplicates 8-11.)

    Why would you add oil? I’m new to the air dryer but I thought the purpose was supposed to be an alternative to using oil…

    1. Air fryers can be used without any oil.. however they are designed to use LESS oil.. would rather just do a sprits of oil or dunk them and soak them in a pot of oil? The sprits of oil helps give it a more fried texture than without. Give It a try without though and see how it goes 🙂 

    2. spray with oil almost everything in the air fryer, hence the use of the word, fryer.

      Food crisps up better with some oil. A tablespoon of oil added to give a thin coating is nothing like what they would absorb being fried in oil.

    These were wonderful! I added 1/2 tsp. cinnamon to the sugar, graham cracker mixture. These will be a favorite with the my grandkids!

    1. You should just spritz the oil on them before putting in air fryer. Helps to get the crunch

    2. Sounds of it it looks like you dipped these twice before you put them in the air fryer, is that true

    3. So reading this, it’s as though the apples are supposed to be floured and dipped twice? Is that correct?
