11 Guilt-Free Air Fryer Recipes

Try our yummy air fryer recipes for fries, chicken wings, and more!

Air fryer chicken wings

Air fryer recipes are on trend... for good reason! This countertop kitchen appliance can help you make all kinds of indulgent recipes with only a fraction of the fat and calories. From easy appetizers to hearty main dish recipes, you can use an air fryer to make your life in the kitchen easier (and healthier!).

What is an air fryer? It's a small appliance that cooks food by circulating hot air, cooking food to a crisp texture quickly. You can make crispy French fries using only about a tablespoon of oil, instead of the cups that it would take in a deep fryer. You can also use an air fryer to cook lots of other kinds of food!

Here are some of our favorite recipes using an air fryer, from easy appetizers to mouthwatering mains.

I just got an air fryer and have been looking for new recipes! I can't wait to try these, especially the chocolate cake!

I bought myself an air fryer for Christmas last year. I tried it once, making basic fries. I have been itching to try different things with it but hadnt come across many recipes for it. I will have to try some of these out soon. It is so much healthier than deep frying.
