  • 2 large apples
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • ½ cup porridge oats
  • cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon all purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ginger
  • ½ teaspoon mixed spice
  • 50 g cold butter cut into small cubes


  • Wash and pat the apples dry, core and cut into halves (you will have 4 apple halves in total) there is no need to peel the apples.
  • To a small bowl add porridge oat, flour, brown sugar, ginger powder, mixed spice. Cinnamon, butter, and rub together to form crumbs.
  • Place the apples in a baking dish and place the baking dish in the air fryer basket then squeeze fresh lemon on them. Tip: slice a teeny tiny bit off the base of the apples so it sits properly in the air fryer basket.
  • Spoon the oat topping on the apples and cook in the air fryer for @ 180C/360F for 12-15 minutes or until the apples are tender to your liking.
  • Serve air fryer baked apples warm with vanilla ice cream, custard, or yogurt for a healthier option.


You can bake the apples directly in the air fryer basket. I prefer to use an oven-safe baking dish to reduce cleanup and also enjoy every last bit of the crumbles.
How to store
