Apple Donut Holes Air Fryer Recipe

2:55 PM

How to make delicious and easy semi-homemade apple donut holes in an air fryer.  This uses canned apple pie filling and crescent rolls for a quick and easy dessert or snack.


We've been up to our eyeballs in apples.  We have a large orchard with several types of apples, so I canned sliced cinnamon apples, apple pie filling, and applesauce.


Dakota made a delicious apple pie, and we've been eating applesauce almost every day.  The kids also love this air fryer apple donut holes recipe.





This is a semi-homemade recipe.  It's easy enough for my kids to make by themselves.


I love that it's air fried, so it has less fat than deep frying.  We do have a deep fryer, but it's kind of a pain to get out and then let cool and clean up the grease splatters.


I didn't think we'd use the air fryer that often, but we really love it.

These apple donut holes are easy to make because they start with a can of crescent rolls.  I get mine at Aldi for around $1 a pack.  





I also cheated and used canned apple pie filling to save time.  I make my own apple pie filling, but you can certainly use a can from the store.


Unlike the crescent rolls that are the same in generic, I do recommend using a good quality apple pie filling.  


If I have to buy it, I prefer the Duncan Hines Comstock Simply Apple or Musselman's Apple Pie Filling.


Both are really good for canned pie fillings.  To be honest, I haven't tried other brands that I liked, but I haven't tried a lot either.  


This is similar to my easy mini apple pie recipe, so you may want to check that out for a baked pie.





I use the Nuwave Brio Air Fryer.  I've had it for almost three years now, and we use it several times a week.
