Why we like apples

Fruit is essential in your diet for fiber and vitamins, and apples are packed with them.

Apples have:

  • 4 grams of fiber
  • Potassium
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin K
  • and rich with polyphenols, antioxidants that protect your body from damage.

I love to use apples in baking, healthy snacks like these apple chips, and as a apple pie like filling for these protein crepes. Also, in my old age, I actually prefer cooked apples to raw ones. They are definitely more gentle on my stomach.

5 minute Apple fries

This 120 calorie treat for apple fries came from the booklet that came with my toaster oven. Using the air fryer setting, it only took 5 minutes, but you could easily do this in an oven.
I used:
✔️1 sliced apple
✔️Butter flavored cooking spray
✔️1 tablespoon Graham cracker crumbs
✔️Sprinkle of cinnamon sugar.
I put the apple slices in a bowl and sprayed them with the butter flavored cooking spray. I sprinkled the Graham cracker crumbs in and mixed it around. Then, I arranged the slices on the air fryer basket for my toaster oven. Next, sprinkled the slices with cinnamon sugar. Then baked in the air fryer for 5 minutes! This makes them a little crispy, similar to fries, which is why we are calling them, apple fries! Watch them carefully! The will burn in 7!! ?

Apple fries is high carb treat, but I like to add protein by dipping the apple slices in vanilla Greek yogurt! So good!

    • Yes! In fact, the original recipe that came with the toaster oven did have a small amount of butter. It might have been 1 teaspoon!

    • Hi Pam! I would start with 375 for about 10-12 minutes! If that doesn’t work, I would turn up the heat, but keep the same time!

  • For the life of me I can’t find the temp you did them at. I did 350 for 5 but had to go a title longer. They are delicious but did you use higher? Thanks!

    • Deb! I’m so sorry. You are right. I’ll fix it. I used 425, but 350 for 10-15 minutes is what Cuisinart recommended, which is what I have. So, I probably should have stuck with that! 🙂
