45 Healthy Recipes You Can Make in an Air Fryer

Who ever said that chicken wings, doughnuts, and pizza couldn't be healthy? Here's how to make the most of your air fryer.

How to Use an Air Fryer

Meet the air fryer, the miracle kitchen gadget that every healthy cook should have. Essentially a small convection oven, an air fryer works by circulating hot air up to 400 degrees around your food, transforming it into crispy perfection without all the oil or butter you'd normally need. (Don't own an air fryer? We love the Cuisinart Air Fryer Toaster Oven.)

So, what can you make in an air fryer? The possibilities are limitless—and you can use an air fryer to make comfort food favorites that are normally deep-fried, sauteed, baked, or grilled. So whether you've craving onion rings, French toast, or cheesy loaded potatoes, here are delicious air fryer recipes to show you how to make the most of this amazingly versatile kitchen tool.

Once you've mastered these recipes, check out our collection of air fryer desserts.

45 Healthy Recipes You Can Make in an Air Fryer

Air Fryer Sweet Potato Tots

Sweet potato tots are a great way to sneak veggies into a picky eater’s meal—and this homemade version is more affordable than buying pre-made, frozen sweet potato tots. Cooking them in the air fryer yields a slightly crisp exterior and a soft interior. We suggest you spray the tots with cooking spray helps to help with browning, though they still don’t brown evenly. Be sure to boil the sweet potatoes just enough that they grate and hold together when shaped, but still retain a little texture. If you don’t like ketchup, you could also serve these with ranch dressing.

Air Fried General Tso's Chicken

This air-fryer riff on the Chinese takeout classic saves the day with nearly half the saturated fat of restaurant versions and loads less clean-up than deep frying at home. Air fryer sizes vary (hence the cook time’s wide range); if you have a smaller air fryer, commit to cooking in batches so that there’s plenty of room for the air to circulate and crisp up the chicken.

Air Fryer Doughnuts

If you’re craving doughnuts without the guilt, these yeast-risen rings deliver the same sweet, tender, and crackly sugar glazed goodness thanks to your air fryer.

Pro tip: After the doughnuts have risen, use the parchment paper to help gently transfer them into the air fryer. Use two forks to lower them into the glaze for maximum coverage.

Air Fryer Banana Bread

Brimming with great, traditional banana flavor, have a slice of this banana bread as an afternoon snack or post-dinner treat with a small smear of butter and/or a side of fruit. We suggest you toast the walnuts before using them in the recipe to deepen their flavor. Take note, though, the top of the bread will get a little darker than if you were to cook a banana bread in the oven due to the heating element being right above the bread.

Air Fryer Avocado Fries

Avocado fries? Oh yes! This irresistible combination of crunchy and creamy is the ultimate air fryer indulgence. They’re a little heavier in calories than most of our snacks, but they’re so darned good, they’re worth the occasional splurge!

The secret to the perfect air fryer avocado fries is picking out avocados that are just ripe, but with enough firmness to hold their shape during cooking. Paired with this kicky, spicy sauce, these fries are next-level good.

Air Fryer Italian-Style Meatballs

Moist and tender, these meatballs are absolutely jam-packed with flavor—and cooking them in the air fryer might be one of the best recipe applications for this device. The meatballs are great on their own; they would also be totally delicious over pasta, rice, or spiralized zoodles. To prevent the meatballs from getting too over-worked as you form them, use what we call the “claw method”: shape your hand into a claw shape and don’t squeeze too hard when shaping.

Air Fried Pork Chops With Brussels Sprouts

If you’re looking for a hearty, simple, satisfying meal that you can make without a lot of excess fat, the air fryer is your friend. Here we serve up a crispy pork chop and some sweet, flavorful Brussels sprouts for a winter dish that is as delicious as it is easy to make.

Air Fryer Churros With Chocolate Sauce

These delights are lighter than traditional churros—almost like éclairs—coming out of the air fryer fluffy and delicious. The cinnamon-sugar mixture creates a thin crust on the outside, delivering that classic churro crunch. You'll want to enjoy these churros immediately, as they're best fresh, but you can save any extra chocolate sauce (try drizzling it over frozen yogurt).

Air Fryer Southern Style Catfish With Green Beans

Nothing beats Southern-style catfish for a hearty meal, but the traditional method of frying unfortunately adds back in a bunch of fat that the lean protein could do without. Enter the air fryer: You can get a crispy, delicious fillet as well as a side of blistered green beans without all the oil, and have it on the table in less than half an hour. Hard to beat!

Air Fryer Broccoli With Cheese Sauce

Believe it or not, your air fryer has more than one superpower. In addition to delivering crispiness without loads of fat, it also delivers crunchy roasted broccoli that doesn’t turn that oh-so-unappealing army green color. And what’s broccoli without cheese sauce? This creamy delight is easy to make ahead—just reheat it right before serving, then drizzle away.

For a complete meal, pair this side with our recipe for air fryer roasted salmon with fennel salad (pictured).

Air Fryer Strawberry Pop Tarts

These adorable air fryer delights check all the nostalgia boxes, from afternoons spent with your sister’s Easy Bake Oven to Saturday mornings eating piping hot pop tarts fresh from the toaster oven.

Our grown-up air fryer version wraps all that goodness into a healthier package, featuring a quick microwave jam with nice chunks of strawberries. Lemon juice cuts the sweetness of the glaze, and the sprinkles—well, they’re just plain fun.

Air Fryer Loaded Baked Potatoes

Comfort food just got quicker and easier courtesy of your air fryer. These crispy "baked" potatoes may seem indulgent, but smart portions of bacon, cheese, and sour cream add big flavor while keeping calories and sat fat in check. The secret is the center-cut bacon—it cooks up nice and crispy, and yields just enough pan drippings to make these potatoes really shine.

Air Fryer Roasted Salmon With Fennel Salad

Your air fryer has more up its sleeve than the expected crispy tricks—it’s also a fantastic oven for roasting meaty fish fillets like salmon. This recipe serves four, but you can easily cut it in half to make a date night dinner for two.

Everything comes together so easily—while the salmon cooks, whip up the quick and tangy fennel slaw. By the time you’re finished, the salmon will be hot and ready to plate up. Try it with the air-fryer broccoli with cheese sauce (pictured).

Air Fryer Empanadas

Traditional meat-filled empanadas can be a double-whammy of fat and calories due to ground beef and a trip to the deep fryer. This air fryer twist on the traditional handheld snack is even healthier thanks to the addition of mushrooms, which lighten the filling while keeping it nice and moist. Pack these air fryer empanadas for a tailgate, or serve them over greens for a hearty supper.

Air-Fried Peach Hand Pies

Perfectly flaky pies from your air fryer? You bet! Store-bought piecrust is a smart shortcut; it bakes up nice and flaky in the air fryer. Naturally, fresh peaches will make the best filling, but you can use thawed frozen peaches if the fresh kind aren’t in season. Don’t toss out the leftover peach juice—simmer it down in a small saucepan until thickened for a fantastic ice cream topper.

Air-Fried Calzones

Welcome to Calzone Making 101. Don’t worry—you’ll ace this course. Our easy recipe shows you the way to perfectly browned and crunchy calzones in the air fryer. We love using whole-wheat pizza dough for the fiber boost it offers, but regular pizza dough will work just fine. Serve these cheesy guys with a side of marinara for dipping.

Air Fryer Chicken Wings

Drumettes have more meat than wings—that's what we use in this tasty recipe for air fryer chicken wings—but either will work. The air fryer basket gets overcrowded easily, so only cook 10 wings at a time, or stir the wings frequently so that they cook evenly. These wings have a sweet and spicy Asian flavor; sprinkle them with some toasted sesame seeds for extra crunch.

Mexican-Style Air-Fried Corn

No need to track down a food truck to get your Mexican street corn fix—your air fryer turns out a fantastic batch. A quick turn halfway through cooking yields crispy, juicy corn that soaks up the tasty garlic-lime butter like a champ.

Pick out small ears, or trim them slightly so that they fit into the air fryer basket. If you have any leftovers, cut the kernels off the cob and stir into a dip or sprinkle over a salad.

Air-Fried Sweet Potato Fries

Hand-cut fries beat out frozen any day, and these sweet potato beauties are a huge air fryer win. An excellent balance of sweet and savory flavors, these crisp fries get a nice kick of flavor from the garlic and thyme.

They make a nice healthy snack, or a great side with a grilled chicken sandwich or burger. Be sure to cut the sweet potato into similiar-sized pieces so they cook evenly. These fries go great with air-fried hot chicken thighs (pictured).

Air-Fried Whole-Wheat Pita Pizzas

In addition to delivering crispy delights, your air fryer makes a pretty awesome countertop pizza oven. Whole-wheat pitas make a great fiber-forward crust, baking up nice and crisp. Opt for roma tomatoes; their smaller size makes them a good fit for these personal pizzas. Swap out toppings to customize your pizzas; since these cook in just 5 minutes, you can prep the next one while the first is baking.

Double-Glazed Air-Fried Cinnamon Biscuit Bites

This scrumptious cross between cinnamon rolls and biscuits is easier than either and stars a simple, no-yeast dough that requires no rising and bakes up into tender, fluffy bites in a matter of minutes. It’s like an adult-version easy bake oven!

You can jazz up the glaze any way you like—we tried swapping out the water for lemon juice and adding a little lemon zest, and loved it. Resist the urge to crowd the air fryer basket; these little guys need to bake in batches so they don’t stick together.

Spicy Air-Fried Chicken Wing Drumettes

Chicken drumettes are a smart choice for air frying—their small size means you don’t have to spend all day cooking endless batches. Traditional drumettes require tons of oil to guarantee maximum crispy goodness; this genius recipe gets it done with just a tablespoon of super-flavorful sesame oil.

Air Fryer Spanakopita Bites

Is there anything your air fryer can’t do? Soup, probably. It would be terrible at soup.

But it can rock out these super-crunchy spanakopita bites! These savory Greek phyllo pastries are filled with spinach and salty cheeses with just a little hit of lemon and heat. Classic spanakopita calls for brushing the phyllo with butter; this version calls for olive oil, which adds even more Greek flavor. Filled with nutrient-rich spinach, these crispy treats make an excellent party dish or appetizer.

Air-Fried Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

This spicy air-fried cauliflower bites recipe checks all the boxes, whether you're having vegetarian friends over to watch the game or you just enjoy recipe mashups starring your favorite flavors. A smidgen of blue cheese adds a lot of flavor to the quick stir-together sauce. (If you’re not a fan of pungent blue cheese, try milder gorgonzola, or even feta.) To make this no-fuss recipe even easier, pick up a package of pre-cut cauliflower florets.

Air Fryer Sweet Potato Chips

Sweet potato chips sound like a nutritious snack, but store-bought versions can still pack significant amounts of fat and sodium. Enter air fryer sweet potato chips. These healthy homemade chips have a third of the fat—and they’re perfectly crunchy and addictive.

Air-Fried Coconut Shrimp

Transport yourself straight to a Caribbean beach by making this air-fried coconut shrimp recipe. Coconut and panko team up to create an amazingly crispy coating for the shrimp; use finely shredded coconut to guarantee better crust adhesion. These beach-dive-inspired crustaceans are even better when dunked into the sweet-and-tangy honey-lime sauce.

Crispy Air-Fried Onion Rings With Comeback Sauce

Ah, onion rings—the ultimate deep-fried indulgence. Thanks to your air fryer, you can rescue this crunchy favorite from the realm of diet banishment and invite it back to your plate. These rings of allium awesomeness come out of the air fryer boasting a superbly crispy coating without any heavy greasiness.

And if you’ve ever had comeback sauce, you know its tangy and sweet flavor is the perfect pairing with the crunchy, savory onion.

Air-Fried Corn Dog Bites

Who doesn’t love a corn dog? These whimsical, perfect little bites of smoky hot dog goodness come with a crunchy cornflake coating—thanks to the air fryer—that will make party guests smile. Look for high-quality uncured hot dogs at upscale grocery stores such as Whole Foods. Mustard is best friends with corn dogs, so pick out your favorite to serve with these fun and festive snacks.

Crispy Toasted Sesame Tofu

Tossed in a tangy dressing rich with the flavors of honey, toasted sesame oil, and soy sauce, these air fryer-crisped cubes of tofu make a hearty supper served over brown rice.

The secret to perfectly crisp tofu is two-fold: First, drain, dry, and press it to remove excess moisture; second, cook it in batches, and turn the cubes during cooking to ensure all sides have a chance to get crunchy.

Air-Fried Flaxseed French Toast Sticks With Berries

One of the secrets to getting the best results from your air fryer is to coat foods with a dry mixture that cooks up nice and crispy. Here, we’ve used omega-3 rich flaxseeds to add a super-food style crunch to French toast. Thanks to this delicious recipe, you can feel great about treating your kids to these on Saturday morning (they’ll never guess they’re eating a fiber-rich and heart-healthy breakfast!).

Air-Fried Beet Chips

Specialty root chips can cost $5 to $6 per bag at the grocery store; save big bucks by whipping up a couple batches in your air fryer. The secret to crispy beet chips is to slice the beets super thin; if your knife skills aren’t Top Chef level, use a mandolin to get wafer-thin slices. Don’t overcrowd the air fryer basket; air flow is crucial to getting the chips nice and crispy.

Air-Fried Apple Chips

On the hunt for a treat that satisfies your sweet tooth without busting your diet? Pack these cinnamon-laced, air-fried apple chips in your lunch bag.

Apples deliver natural sweetness and a handsome amount of fiber, making them a smart choice for any diet, and the air fryer transforms them into something altogether more delicious, thanks to its signature move—adding fat-free crunch. Cutting almond butter with low-fat Greek yogurt adds protein to the dipping sauce, as well as extra creaminess.

Crispy Air Fried Sweet Potato Wedges

These spiced sweet potato wedges make the perfect healthy snack or side dish. The smoky spice blend is easy to whip up ahead of time, but the potatoes are best eaten while hot. Though it’s tempting to crowd the air fryer basket and cook everything in one batch, resist the urge—air flow is crucial for maximum crispiness.

Air Fryer Veggie Quesadillas

Filling but not heavy, air fryer quesadillas make a quick and satisfying weeknight supper. Black beans bring protein and fiber to the party; peppers and zucchini bring color, crunch, and up your daily veggie count. Shop for sprouted tortillas at well-stocked supermarkets; regular whole-wheat tortillas will work in a pinch.

Public Service Announcement: These quesadillas pair perfectly with ice-cold beer; limes optional.

Loaded Greek Feta Fries

The fries are easy to make in an air fryer—and they pick up tons of flavor from the spice mix. If your fresh oregano is strong, start with less than what’s called for and add more to taste. To speed things up, prep all the ingredients in advance so you can assemble quickly while the fries are still hot.

Air-Fried Breakfast Bombs

If you’re only using your air fryer to whip up awesome party snacks, you’re missing out. Pull it out in the morning to make these hearty breakfast bombs filled with bacon, egg, and cheese.

Whole-wheat pizza dough encases the savory filling in a nice fiber-packed crust. Substitute regular pizza dough if you can’t track down whole-wheat dough. Like it spicy? Add a dash or two of hot sauce to the filling before baking. In a rush? These palm-sized “bombs” make a great on-the-go breakfast.

Air-Fried Hot Chicken Thighs

If you’ve been fighting the temptation of fried chicken for the sake of your healthy diet, you can finally indulge guilt free. This spicy, crispy chicken emerges from the air fryer with all the flavor and crunch you’ve been craving. For the best flavor, be sure to let the chicken marinate as instructed—if you have the time, go the full 12 hours. The results are worth it.

Bonus: You can make those fries you see in the air fryer too! Get the recipe here.

Air Fryer Potato Chips

Crispy, crunchy, and addictive, air fryer potato chips have 60 percent less fat than their store-bought counterparts. Yes, making potato chips in your air fryer requires a little bit of effort—but the result is a salty snack that’s actually pretty healthy. Does it get much better than that?

Air-Fried Pork Dumplings With Dipping Sauce

Asian dumplings are an amazing appetizer—the perfect combination of crispy and chewy. No surprise here: Your air fryer can rock this recipe like a champ.

Pork and ginger are the star flavors in these savory little bites, along with quick stir-fried bok choy. These easy-to-assemble appetizers make a great family cooking project—just stuff, seal, and air-fry your way to homemade takeout goodness. Look for thin dumpling wrappers at Asian grocery stores; regular egg roll wrappers will work in a pinch.

Air-Fried Curry Chickpeas

Up your app game with these addictively crunchy chickpeas. The main ingredient of hummus, creamy chickpeas bake into crisp little nuggets in almost no time. These are a great snack substitute for chips thanks to loads of fiber and a good amount of protein. You can make these ahead; they’ll keep about a week in an airtight container.

Air Fryer "Everything Bagel" Kale Chips

Welcome to your new go-to snack food—kale chips 2.0! These flavor-packed nutritious chips come out of the air fryer even crispier than they do from your regular oven.

Store-bought everything bagel seasoning can be gorged with sodium. Our homemade version delivers the same flavor using staples you probably have hanging out in your spice cabinet. Shop for the perkiest fresh kale you can put your hands on—it yields the crispiest chips.

Air-Fried Shrimp Spring Rolls With Sweet Chili Sauce

Crunch is the name of the game with these shrimp- and veggie-packed spring rolls. Fresh carrots and cabbage hold their texture nicely in the air fryer, and the shrimp adds a nice fill-you-up factor. Be sure to purchase thin spring roll wrappers (not thicker egg roll wrappers) and brush them with oil before cooking to get the crispiest results.

Air Fryer Fish and Chips

Classic pub fare like fish and chips can be a real grease-fest, but not when your air fryer’s invited to the party. Panko-crusted tilapia cooks up golden-brown and crispy in the air fryer, while spiralized potato fries make for an irresistibly tasty (and healthier) spin on the traditional "chip." Don’t skip the rich and tangy malt vinegar on the side; it brings a lot of flavor without the added calories and fat of tartar sauce.

The Best Air Fryer Salmon

Moist and flakey inside, crispy seasoned outside. Baking the salmon in the Air Fryer takes the guess work out of cooking salmon. Sometimes it can be intimidating to cook seafood but it’s so easy. This will turn a weekend meal to a weeknight stable. It’s so quick too! 20 min or so and dinners done!

The combination of brown sugar and garlic is amazing. The sweet and savory duet is a match made in heaven. You are going to love the intense flavor of this recipe.


45 Healthy Instant Pot Recipes You’ll Want to Cook Over and Over Again

People are pretty devoted to their Instant Pots—rightfully so, considering one will cook almost anything beautifully. And because of its popularity, there’s a plethora of healthy Instant Pot recipes out there just begging to be made—from creamy soups to flavorful veggie sides to fall-off-the-bone tender meat.

The Instant Pot can function as a pressure cooker or a slow cooker, and it also lets you sauté, steam, and quickly cook just about everything from pork ribs to artichoke hearts. (It’s also a rice cooker and yogurt maker, because why not do all the things?) Home chefs, including yours truly, love this little appliance because it drastically reduces the cooking time of meals that typically have to simmer for a long time—like beef stew, bolognese sauce, and chicken stock.

Another thing that’s great about these healthy Instant Pot recipes? Most of them can be made in just the one pot—no extra pots or pans required. That means you get to shave time off the clean-up too. (Personally, that’s the part I dread most about cooking.)

With the 45 healthy Instant Pot recipes below, you can spend less time in the kitchen, while still getting a delicious and nutritious main, side, appetizer, or entire meal. Sounds like a fantasy, but trust me, it’s definitely a real thing.

A note about the word healthy here: We know that healthy is a complicated concept. Not only can it mean different things to different people, it’s a word that’s pretty loaded (and sometimes fraught), thanks to the diet industry’s influence on the way we think about food. At SELF, when we talk about food being healthy, we’re primarily talking about foods that are nutritious, filling, and satisfying. But it also depends on your preferences, your culture, what’s accessible to you, and so much more. We selected these recipes with those basic criteria in mind while also trying to appeal to a wide variety of nutritional needs and taste buds.


Copycat Cheesecake Factory Cheesecake

Now if you’re at all familiar with Cheesecake Factory cheesecake, you know the slices are pretty thick. While we could have made our cheesecake the same way, we decided to slice the calories in half and make the cheesecake a bit thinner than usual. However, if you would rather have a slice of cheesecake a mile high—just like the Cheesecake Factory cheesecake—then you simply double the cheesecake recipe, but make the same crust.

45 Healthy Cranberry Recipes

45 Healthy Cranberry Recipes

October is National Cranberry Month and I couldn’t let it go by without featuring these beauties in a roundup of 45 Healthy Cranberry Recipes from fellow registered dietitians!

Last year I had the amazing opportunity to tour a real cranberry bog during the harvest. The color of the berries along the scenic backdrop was breathtaking. We also learned a lot about the science supporting the health benefits of this powerhouse fruit.

Cranberry Bog in Massachusetts

Latest Research Updates:

A research review in the international journal, Advances in Nutrition, shows that proanthocyanidins (PACs – pronounced “packs”), the bioactive compounds in cranberries, help reduce the incidence of certain infections, maintain a healthy urinary tract, improve heart health and reduce inflammation associated with chronic disease and aging. All good things!

All cranberry products, including fresh cranberries, cranberry juice cocktail, dried cranberries and sauces, contain unique, health-promoting flavonoids called PACs.

Deep Data Dive: Cranberry Products and UTIs

Through the years, studies have confirmed that there is significant support for the use of cranberry products in reducing the incidence of urinary tract infections. Their work also found that for those with some risk for UTIs, the effects of cranberry products were more pronounced. The outcome of their analyses provided support for their conclusion statements: [the results] could be used by physicians to recommend the ingestion of cranberries to decrease the incidence of UTIs, particularly in patients with recurrent UTIs. Good news. Food is medicine folks. (1)

Dried Cranberries and Gut Health

The microbiome is a hot topic among health professionals! Researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison discovered that one handful-a-day of sweetened dried cranberries may make a significant change in the gut microbiome. In a recent study in OMICS: A Journal of Integrative Biology, the addition of a typical serving (42 grams 125 calories) of this tangy fruit resulted in positive changes in the bacterial make-up and proteins present in healthy adults after only two weeks. (2)

Now that we know some of the health benefits of cranberries, let’s enjoy their deliciousness with 45 Healthy Cranberry Recipes! Thanks to everyone who shared their creations with me!

45+ Best Healthy Takeout Recipes

Skip the takeout and make your favorite takeout recipes at home! We’ve gathered the 45+ best healthy takeout recipes for you and your family to enjoy in your home.

I absolutely love all of my takeout favorites. I love a good Crab Rangoon and General Tso’s Chicken on a Friday or Saturday night. What I miss most is ordering it with a group of friends and having a movie night on the weekends. Those were the days, as my grandmother used to say. We will once again be able to take part in our traditions and until then we have to make new ones.

It’s amazing how much our lives and our memories happen around food and a good bottle of wine (or a cocktail!). Those are the nights that we miss the most. One of my new traditions is to make my own healthy takeout recipes at home. It gives me a little taste of my “normal” life while still doing my part and staying home.

Plus, they are easy and make my weekend nights fun. I still try to order takeout occasionally to support local businesses during this time but it’s better for my budget and my jeans if I don’t order it as much as I want.

Let me tell you though: these healthy takeout recipes are so incredible! I’ve already made a few and they are were so dang delicious. And, making egg rolls? Super fun. You should definitely make them. In fact, it would be a fun family activity, too.

We’ve compiled a list of over 45 healthy takeout recipes that you can make any night of the week. You’ll want to save this list for later! This will be a fun tradition to keep up!
