Air Fryer Caramelized Stone Fruits caramelized peaches on a white plate with coconut whip cream and granola

I love eating fresh fruits in the summer, but now that the weather has cooled down I’ve been craving cooked fruits. My favourite thing about cooked fruits is that they become tender, super juicy (like drip-down-your-chin juicy) and the flavour becomes intensified. This is perfect for the cooler months when the fruits are not ideal.

Today I’ll be sharing my new favourite way of cooking fruits… using the one and only… AIR FRYER. Yes. Air Fried Fruits. Specifically stone fruits because peaches and nectarines are slowly going out of season but plums are beginning to hit the grocery stores for cheap.

Air Frying fruits is super easy, quick and caramelized fruits to perfection without the use of oil or butter! It’s crazy delicious over oatmeal, yogurt, whipped coconut cream, with a scoop of ice cream or even on its own. I’m SOOO excited to share this method with you so lets dive right in shall we?

What You Need to Make Air Fryer Caramelized Stone Fruits

Appliances:

The only appliance you need is an air fryer. I highly recommend purchasing a air fryer if you haven’t already. It’s my most used appliance in the kitchen right now because it’s quick, easy to use and easy to clean. I’ve owned a couple different air fryers and I’ve been currently really liking the OMARC one. I also own a bigger one from COSORI which is great for when I’m making a couple servings.

Ingredients:

I also like to add a pinch of cinnamon and salt for more flavour!

How to Caramelize Fruits using a Air Fryer

I’ve caramelized fruit on a skillet, grilled peaches on a griller and roasted fruit in the oven. I can confirm that the air fryer method is the easiest and quickest way to achieve perfect tender, juicy and caramelized fruit. Plus, no need for any butter or oil!

It’s just 4 simple steps: Halve the stone fruit. Brush some maple syrup. Sprinkle with coconut sugar. Air fry.

You can even skip the coconut sugar, but I find that it just adds another depth of that roasted deep caramelized flavour everyone loves.

If you’re wondering if you can do this with other fruit, yes– you can! I’ve made with with bananas and pineapple using very similar steps.
