Air frier dessert

52. Air Fried Banana

Hey buddy, I’ve got this super easy fried bananas recipe that’ll satisfy anyone’s sweet tooth! It’s got that natural sweetness from the bananas and a crispy layer from some added brown sugar. Just throw in some crunchy granola and whipped cream, or even put it on your morning pancakes!


51. Air Fryer Shortbread

Oh, and have you tried making air fryer shortbread? It’s such a simple recipe to start with – only three ingredients and 10 minutes of prep time. Make them into cookies or shortbread fingers that are perfect for dipping in coffee.


50. Air Fryer Apple Crisp

I found this amazing air fryer apple crisp recipe. You can use the baking dish that came with your air fryer or any oven-safe dish. It looks so good in a fancy ceramic dish, and you can eat it straight from the container! Or, for individual servings, use 4 oz ramekins. They’re the perfect size!


49. Air Fryer Dessert Empanadas

And guess what? I love making dessert empanadas in the air fryer! I’m a huge fan of pre-made empanada pastry – it’s such a time-saver! Just remember not to overfill them, so they don’t bubble up and spill out. 


48. Apple Pie Air Fryer Egg Roll

For a fun snack, you should try making apple pie air fryer egg rolls! They’re perfect for get-togethers or just coffee with friends. Using egg roll wrappers gives you that crispy outside and tender inside. And if you want more texture, make your own filling and dice the apples small enough to cook but still keep their shape.


47. Monkey Bread Recipe in the Air Fryer

Monkey bread in the air fryer is also a must-try. It’s warm, sweet, sticky, tender, and so irresistible! You can proof and bake this gooey pull-apart sweet bread right in your air fryer for everyone to share.


46. Air Fryer Blueberry Muffins 

I’ve got this air fryer blueberry muffins recipe for you. No need to worry about your cupcake tin fitting in the air fryer – just use these cute paper liners that keep their shape without a tray! Since there’s only two of us, making smaller batches is perfect for satisfying our sweet cravings without having leftovers for weeks.


45. Air Fryer Cherry Hand Pies

You know what’s amazing about this recipe? It’s got this vibrant, bright filling and a super creamy, dreamy glaze. Waiting for the glaze to set is tough, but hey, if you wanna dive right in with sticky hands, I won’t judge!


44. Air Fryer Strawberry Pop-Tarts Recipe

I still buy Pop-Tarts sometimes! I don’t know if it’s the sugar or the nostalgia, but I can’t help it. Making your own is so much fun, though! You can go wild with fillings – banana and Nutella are my favorites.


43. Air Fryer Grilled Peaches

Have you tried air fryer grilled peaches? Just four ingredients and 15 minutes. You won’t get those grill marks, but the flavor is all there! I like the graham cracker crumble, but they’d be great with a bit of brown sugar too.


42. Air Fryer Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

There’s this air fryer chocolate chip skillet cookie – it’s perfect! No need for a big oven if you’re not making a bunch. Cook it a bit longer if you like, but I love it chewy and gooey.


41. Air Fryer Cheesecake Chimichangas

Cheesecake chimichangs in the air fryer? I was sold before I even tried them! Quick cheesecake mix, customizable with fruit, jam, Nutella, or pie filling. You can skip the cinnamon if you want – just brush with butter and add a bit of sugar for crunch.


40. Air Fryer Berry Hand Pies

Air fryer berry hand pies are another great option. They use jam as filling, which makes them even sweeter and super flavorful. Just remember, they’ll be super hot when they come out!


39. Air Fryer Bread Pudding

If you’ve got leftover bread, make air fryer bread pudding. It’s soft, sweet, and a great way to use stale bread. Give the custard a couple of hours to soak in for the best results.


38. Air Fryer Baked Apples

Baked apples in the air fryer are like a self-contained apple crisp. Just cut the back a bit for a flat surface and sprinkle with brown sugar before cooking.


37. Air Fryer Beignets

Missing New Orleans beignets? These air fryer beignets won’t be exactly the same, but they’re a fantastic substitute. Just use self-raising flour, or you’ll end up with flat, dense beignets.


36. Copycat Domino’s Cinnamon Bread Twists

Fun and easy copycat Domino’s cinnamon bread twists! Who wouldn’t want a box of warm, sweet bread twists after pizza? Make them like yogurt bagels and serve with cream cheese glaze for extra indulgence.


35. Air Fryer S’mores

You know what’s absolutely genius and mess-free? This air fryer s’mores recipe! You still get that gooey marshmallow and melted chocolate, but it’s all in one neat little package. Just a few minutes in, and the marshmallow turns all golden. The chocolate melts perfectly from the residual heat.


34. Air Fryer Apple Fries

And during apple season, I go a bit crazy with apple recipes. But these air fryer apple fries are one of my fave snacks! They’re super easy and delicious, with that sugar and graham cracker crust – it’s like having apple crisp without the hassle.


33. Air Fryer Apple Fritters

Apple fritters are pastries that are a little like donuts but can be made with a simple batter rather than using yeast.

That means no resting or proofing, and you can make and eat them right away.

You will need to spray these with a touch of cooking spray to help get that great crunch on the outside, and I highly recommend using an ice cream scoop when portioning.


32. Air Fryer Cake

I know I said that the air fryer is best for making crispy foods without having to deep-fry, but it’s also a great little oven. 

A coil and a mini-fan that heats the drawer just like a convection oven, and if you have the right sized baking dish, you can make one cute little cake.


31. Air Fryer Oreos

When you go to the state or local fair, do you run to the rides or the concession stand first?

Between the fried Oreos and corn dogs, I can’t help but hit the food first.

This recipe is so creative and a great way to get fried Oreo taste without all that grease.

Using crescent rolls is the perfect way to get a fantastic tender coating and bring a piece of the fun home.


30. Air Fryer Churros

You know what might be the perfect first dessert to try in your air fryer? Churros! They’re usually made by dropping dough into hot oil and rolling them in cinnamon sugar when they’re golden and crisp. The trick for air fryer churros is to pipe and refrigerate them first. Just make sure to eat them fresh and roll them in sugar as soon as they’re done cooking.
