Cinnamon Air Fryer Apples with Walnuts

It’s time to give yourself permission to act like a kid again. So I’m here to show you a grown-up twist on a childhood favorite with these cinnamon Air Fryer apples.

Today I have partnered with Have a Plant to bring to you this delicious apple recipe.

Cinnamon and apple just work together. It’s like they went on a first date and it was love at first sight. No wonder so many packaged kids foods are cinnamon apple flavored. But this version is free of anything processed, and is a hit with all ages.

Benefits of the Ingredients

The cinnamon brings out the natural sweetness of the apples and provides antioxidants. This combined with the fiber of the apples and the omega-3s of the walnuts makes it a power snack or dessert.

What Type of Apple to Use

Apples come in many varieties, and each provide different flavors, textures, and sugar content. I am using Envy apples for this recipe because they have a beautifully balanced sweetness and hold a great texture even when cooked.
