How do I Cook these Baked Apple Slices?
You can prepare this baked apple slices recipe using a conventional oven or an Air Fryer.
How do I cook these Baked Apple Slices in the Air Fryer?
Spritz your Air Fryer Basket with Olive Oil.
Place your seasoned apple slices in the basket and lay them flat and spaced apart.
Why Air Fry?
I love my Air Fryer and use it several times a week, it has become a staple in my kitchen. Cooking with an Air Fryer is better for your health, deep fried foods are loaded with fat and calories which can lead to serious health conditions.
With the Air Fryer you only use a couple of sprays of Olive Oil which makes your meals in the Air Fryer much lighter. You will not feel bloated and lethargic after you eat like you would after a greasy burger and fries.
How Long does it take to Air Fry?
Most dishes prepared in the Air Fryer can be prepared in a fraction of the time that they would take in a traditional oven. If you are always on the go and do not have a lot of time to spend cooking than an Air Fryer is perfect for you.
Is an Air Fryer easy to clean?
When you finish cooking in your Air Fryer there is no excess grease to clean up or discard like you would have if were traditionally frying. No oil splatters on the stove or countertops. Just remove your basket and rinse with soap and water easy peasy!
What Ingredients do I need for these Baked Apple Slices with Cinnamon?
- 2 Tablespoons of Cinnamon
- 2 Tablespoons of Zing Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener - if you prefer sugar you can swap the zing for regular sugar but note sugar is 48 calories per tablespoon so you would be adding an extra 96 calories to the recipe.
- ¼ Teaspoon of Ground Ginger
- 2 Large Apples - Any Variety or Mix and Match - Cored and sliced into 1/16 inch slices - apple rings
How do I prepare these Baked Apple Slices?
- In a bowl combine Cinnamon, Zing (or sugar if you prefer) and Ginger and mix together.
- Place you cut apple slices flat in a single layer on a baking sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Make sure the apple slices do not touch.
- Sprinkle lightly with your Cinnamon, Sugar and Ginger mixture. You do not have to use all the mixture - coat the slices to your liking.
- Bake in a pre heated oven at 300 Degrees F, with the racks placed in the upper and lower thirds of the oven, until the apple slices feel leathery, about 2 hours.
- When baking is complete turn off the oven and crack open the oven door a pinch and let them cool in the oven. They will become crisp as they cool.
