Prepare the Apples:
Wash and thinly slice the apples. If you have a mandoline slicer, it can help you achieve uniform thickness. Remove seeds and cores.
Toss with Lemon Juice:
In a large bowl, toss the apple slices with lemon juice. This not only adds a zesty flavor but also helps prevent browning.
Cinnamon Sugar Coating:
In a separate bowl, mix together the granulated sugar and ground cinnamon.
Coat the Apple Slices:
Take each apple slice and lightly coat both sides with the cinnamon sugar mixture. Shake off any excess.
Arrange in the Air Fryer Basket:
Place the coated apple slices in a single layer in the air fryer basket. You may need to do this in batches depending on the size of your air fryer.
Cook the apple slices in the preheated air fryer for 8-10 minutes, flipping them halfway through the cooking time. Keep a close eye on them to prevent burning, as cooking times can vary between air fryers.
Serve and Enjoy:
Transfer the cinnamon sugar apple chips to a serving bowl or plate. They are best enjoyed when fresh and can be a delightful snack on their own or paired with yogurt, caramel dip, or your favorite nut butter.
