How Do I Make Individual Apple Crisps?

When you have an air fryer, it’s easy to whip up your fall desserts! Just follow these simple instructions for making apple crisps for one or two people using this handy appliance.

Step One: Prepare the Apples

Before you can start layering your apple crisps for cooking, you need to begin by getting the apples ready for baking. First, peel and core each apple. Then, dice the fruit into small pieces and place the pieces in a medium bowl. Add the cinnamon, nutmeg, lime juice, and maple syrup to the apples, then stir until all the pieces are fully coated.

Step Two: Mix the Topping

Once your apples are ready, set the bowl aside and grab another bowl to mix up the crumble topping. Add the oats, cinnamon, pecans, maple syrup, flour, and coconut oil to the bowl and mix everything until the oats are evenly coated.

Step Three: Layer the Crumble Dessert

Now that you have the apple filling and crumble topping ready, it’s time to start layering. First, place the apple mixture in a ramekin and pour some melted coconut oil over the top. Then, spread the topping evenly over each ramekin, fully covering the apple mixture.Apple Crisp Steps.

Step Four: Cook the Apple Crumble

Spray the top of each apple crumble with nonstick cooking spray, then cover the ramekins with foil. Place the individual ramekins in the basket of your air fryer and cook the apple crisps at 375 degrees for 25 minutes. When the cooking time is up, remove the bowls from the basket and serve warm.

Individual Apple Crumble Recipe Ideas

You’ll love how quick and easy it is to make small desserts in your air fryer! Use these recipe ideas and tips for preparing a delicious vegan dessert when craving a sweet treat.

  • Remove the foil for a crispy topping. If you prefer your apple crumble topping to be on the crispy side, simply remove the foil from the top of the ramekins when the cooking time is up. Afterward, return the basket to the air fryer and continue cooking for two to three more minutes to add a crunch to your topping.
  • Serve with a topping. This air fryer apple crumble is delicious, but that doesn’t mean you can’t dress it up with some toppings! Try serving your cooked apple crumble with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, vanilla yogurt, or caramel sauce.
  • Try it with butter. Using coconut oil makes this a delicious vegan dessert. But if you don’t have any coconut oil on hand, you can replace the oil with melted butter. The exact amount of melted butter can be used instead of coconut oil in this recipe.
  • Speed up the prep work with apple pie filling. If you’re in a rush and don’t want to spend time peeling and dicing fresh apples, simply replace the apple filling with canned apple pie filling. When you go this route, you can also reduce the cooking time of your individual apple crisps to 15 to 20 minutes.

Should I Bake My Apple Crisp Covered or Uncovered?

When using your air fryer, it’s a good idea to cover the ramekins holding your individual apple crisps. This will help keep the topping from burning while the apples cook. Covering the tops of your dessert may make the topping soft when the crisps are finished baking, though. If you prefer crunchy topping on your apple dessert, just remove the cover and continue cooking the crisps for another two to three minutes to help harden the tops.

What Kind of Dish Can I Use in the Air Fryer?

Any oven-safe dish can be safely used in the air fryer. Before filling up your ramekins and placing them in the air fryer basket, take a look at the bottom of your dish to ensure it says that it’s oven safe. It’s also a good idea to place all the dishes in your air fryer basket before filling them up to make sure they fit and that your air fryer basket will fit properly into the fryer.
