This is the easiest recipe for air fryer peaches ever! You only need 3 basic ingredients and 15 total minutes to make this no-fuss peach dessert. The peaches are topped with cinnamon sugar and air fried, getting nicely browned on top and super juicy on the inside! 


  • 3 peaches (see note 1)
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Preheat the air fryer at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 3 - 5 minutes (see note 2). While the air fryer is preheating, continue on with the following steps.
  2. Mix together the cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl. Set aside.
  3. Cut each peach in half vertically. Gently twist apart each peach into two halves. Remove the pits and discard.
  4. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over the cut surface of each peach half. If needed, use a clean finger to help spread the cinnamon sugar to create an even layer.
  5. When the air fryer is preheated, place the peaches into the air fryer cut side up, spaced evenly apart. Air fry the peaches for 8 - 10 minutes, or until the sugar has caramelized and the peaches are tender.


1. For best results, use peaches that are moderately ripe (meaning not too hard or too soft). The peaches should give only slightly to gentle pressure.

2. The amount of preheating time needed will depend on your model of air fryer. For specific preheating instructions, check your air fryer manual. 

3. A small amount of the cinnamon sugar and peach juice may drip onto the cooking surface of the air fryer. For me, this was easy enough to wash off using a soft-bristle dish brush. But, if you want to make cleanup a little easier, you can either: (1) spray the air fryer with cooking oil right before adding the peaches; (2) line the air fryer with a piece of parchment paper pre-cut to fit the bottom of the air fryer basket. Add it right before adding the peaches (after preheating); or (3) just wash the air fryer basket before the sugar fully hardens!
