How to make air fryer baked apples

Wash and dry the apples you picked. Using a sharp little knife, try to cut the core of each apples out, without cutting it all the way through. It may take some time. If you feel like its too much, you can just an apple in half and core it that way. When they will be baked it will not matter for the taste, only the shape will be different.

Fill the holes in the apples with cream cheese and top with chopped pecans. I used pecans because honestly that’s what i had on hand. It will be as delicious with almonds, walnuts, pistachios and even some dried fruit and berried like cranberries, currants or raisins. You can place a tiny piece of butter inside too, but that’s optional.

Once apples are in the pan, drizzle them with maple syrup or honey and cinnamon. Put the pan into a preheated to 340 degrees air fryer for about 20 minutes, until apples are tender to the tip of a knife. Serve warm.

Storage instructions

Store them in a air tight container for up to 5 days. Reheating instructions: Since this apples are best when warm, just put them into your air fryer for 1 minute at 360 degrees and they will be warm and nice to eat.
