This is one of my favorite treats. Cinnamon Apple Fries: a single apple sliced, coated with pulverized graham cracker crumbs and baked in the air fryer. They are delicious on their own, but SINFUL when dipped in creamy Greek yogurt sweetened with a drizzle of honey or maple syrup.
These apple fries are reminiscent of apple pie without all the extra ingredients. There are a ton of options you use to coat the apple slices other than graham crackers: gingersnap cookies, oatmeal cookies, teddy grahams, pretzels– the possibilities are endless!
Cinnamon Apple "Fries"
Yield 1 apple
Guilt free sweet treat! Crisp apples breaded in graham cracker crumbs and air fried till the outside is crispy and the inside deliciously warm and barely tender.
- 1 Honey crisp Apple
- 1/2 C crushed graham crackers*, pulverized into crumbs
- 1/4 C whole wheat flour (may substitute white flour, almond flour, or oat flour )
- 1 pinch of salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 egg, beaten
- Oil spray (I used coconut oil for (Trader Joe's)
1. Preheat air fryer or oven to 400 degree. 2. Peel, Core, and Cut apple into 8- 12 wedges. 3. In one bowl, beat egg. Add cinnamon.4. In another bowl, add the crumbs, whole wheat flour, and pinch of salt. 5. Dredge each apple in the egg mixture first followed by the crumb mixture. 6. Place the apples on a plate or baking sheet. When all have been coated, spray liberally with the oil spray on both sides. 7. Cook for 8- 10 minutes or until crispy, flipping halfway.
Any cracker or cookie will work! I have tried graham crackers, gingersnaps, and cinnamon teddy grahams!
