Do you have an air fryer? If you do, you probably cook many things in it like I have started doing. I just got my air fryer and I want to show you how to make donuts in the Power Air Fryer Oven.

I was so excited about getting this Power air fryer pro oven for Christmas, I had wanted one for a very long time. I only cook for 2 people and this works great more lot’s of things that I want to cook quickly.

Starting out with some simple easy to do air fryer recipes, I choose to make these donuts first. We don’t eat donuts very often because they are so sugary and unhealthy.

Now, I know these are not healthy either but you can choose how much sugar you want when making them.

These are so simple to make when you do want donuts and I found them to be very delicious.

Most air fryer recipes that I come across for these donuts use the flaky biscuits, I don’t care for them so I got the regular butter flavored ones.

The butter that is in these biscuits just make them so much more tastier in my opinion.

My favorite is the donut holes, so much easier to eat and you can eat more of them, well I can anyways.

I didn’t add the info in for cooking the donut holes, it’s basically the same process, just less time.

I have a confession to make….I hate one glazed and one chocolate one while the donut holes were cooking, I am so pitiful. I loved them so much more than going to a donut shop.

Has anyone tried making donuts in your air fryer using a biscuit recipe instead of the canned biscuits? I have the PowerAirFryer but no canned biscuits. I don’t plan on running to the store to get biscuits during a pandemic.

I have never done it by making my own dough but I am sure someone has. I would search over on Pinterest and see what you can find. I hope you come across something :)
