1teaspooncinnamon or pumpkin pie spice*optional, more or less to taste
Preheat the airfryer to 320 degrees.
Thoroughly wash the apples. You do not need to peel the apples, but you can if you want to. You can also core the apple, but again, it’s not necessary. Thinly slice the apples, they should be about ⅛th of an inch thick.
Optional step: Coat the apples in a little bit of lemon juice to prevent browning. You can also sprinkle the apples with cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice.
Lay out the apples on the air fryer trays or the bottom of the air fryer basket. Try to not overlap the apples too much. When the air fryer is up to heat, add the apples in a cook for 5 minutes.
Take the apples out and flip them over. This prevents sticking and promotes even dehydrating. If you have trays, rotate the trays from top and bottom.Cook for 5 minutes more.
Check your apple chips and bake 2-10 minutes* longer. They are done when they are hardened and have just a little bit of flexibility. They will crisp up as they cool.
Store in an airtight container to prevent softening.

*Every air fryer cooks a little differently. In test groups, some found they were done after the first 10 minutes, others cooked theirs for 12 minutes, some needed 16 mins, and another cooked it a full 20 minutes. I have found that in the air fryer the apples can go from perfectly dehydrated to burned within a minute, so keep your eye on them!
