This recipe is incredibly easy to make. To be honest, I have’t prepared an air fryer dish yet, that wasn’t quick and easy. That is definitely one of the reasons why I love the machine so much.
I frequently use extra-virgin olive oil with my air fryer. I decided to switch it up this time and went with avocado oil. Avocado oil also has a high smoke point, which is great for frying.
I am not a huge baker. Donuts are one the few desserts I love dearly. I typically use a donut mold when I make my own donuts. I will definitely prepare a gluten-free version next using my mold. Check out my Pan Fried Donuts recipe.
Because I typically use a mold, I don’t have a biscuit cutter. I used the scoop from a cannister of powdered protein. It worked perfectly. A great example of how great putting things to use around the house can be.
Make holes in the biscuit dough, create donuts, and throw them in the air fryer.
You can choose to top these dounts with anything you like!
For extended use, store the donuts in sealable, plastic bags. If you want the donuts to stay crisp, reheat using the air fryer. This will bring back the crunch.

Easy to make and I like that they are low in fat. My friend has an Air Fryer and loves it.
