Air Fryer Apple Fritters – A simple spin on a fall favorite made with just 7 ingredients in 15 minutes. This is the perfect fall air fryer recipe!

Air Fryer Apple Fritters

I’ve got to say, I love my air fryer so much more than I ever thought I would! I definitely didn’t get the hype at first but once I started making air fryer potatoes, air fryer everything bagel crescent rolls, and air fryer cherry pies, I finally got how great it is.  After making apple fritter monkey bread a few years back, I was inspired to make an air fryer version and thus, we have air fryer apple fritters!

To make these air fryer apple fritters, all you need are 7 ingredients and 15 minutes.  Yes, you heard me right.  15 minutes! You can whip these bad boys up in time for breakfast or even as an easy fall dessert.

Now keep in mind that this is a shortcut recipe so there isn’t any yeasted dough or anything.  It has the similar flavors but in a easy and approachable form.  I know apple fritters are complicated enough that I haven’t tried making the classic version yet! Plus, while this isn’t a terribly healthy diet, they are not deep fried which is cool!

Common Questions About Making Air Fryer Apple Fritters

I don’t have a can of biscuits on hand, what can I use instead?

Instead of biscuits you could use dinner rolls dough, crescent dough, or even cinnamon rolls!

What kind of apples should I use for apple fritters?

Any type of apples will work! I chose fuji apples but use either what you have on hand or like best.
